@Genesis @ronin

Can you please try deleting your cached directory for the package? The PKGBUILD here is the same as i3-git, and both build fine once I did that.

ronin commented on 2021-04-26 05:19

can you add pod2man as dependency?

Genesis commented on 2020-12-19 08:02


For some time now, I have this error when trying to build this package. Maybe pod2man should be added as a make dependency ?

@patrick96 Yes, I was a bit too eager removing some clutter. Sorry about that, but should be fixed now.

Shouldn't git be in makedepends? Otherwise I get an error when building in a clean chroot (with extra-x86_64-build): ==> ERROR: Cannot find the git package needed to handle git sources.

@erikdubois What's wrong with how it works? I use the mechanism recommended in the guidelines. This is a VCS package, the version number doesn't have to be up to date all the time, you're responsible to rebuild it yourself. You can also use the release package i3-gaps instead.

I do bump it on releases usually, though.

erikdubois commented on 2019-10-16 18:21

Can you change the way the version number works please. We are now at i3-gaps-next-git 4.17.1.r93.gd4492c5a-1.

@Megumi_fox Can you please report this on GitHub upstream in i3?

when building on many threads concurrently, the generated Makefile may try to compile i3-config-wizard before i3-config-parser.stamp and result an error where GCC cannot find the to-be-generated header file. This error happens at a low possibility.

I can confirm it's working now. Thanks for the merge.
