Also requires bison and flex packages to compile
Optionaly pkg-config

logrotate fails to rotate icinga2 logs due to permission problems.
I had to change following lines in /etc/logrotate.d/icinga2:

- su icinga icinga
+ su icinga icingacmd

- create 644 icinga icinga
+ create 644 icinga icingacmd

Icinga Studio is now available in AUR! Therefore this is now a split package. Please check out all the changes and help improving the package by providing feedback.

Previous answer:

@das_j install the base-devel package group. Base devel is included in no PKGBUILD, cause it's the arch-standard to install the base-devel package for compilation jobs.

bison and flex seem to be makedepends, perhaps you may add them to the PKGBUILD file.

I would like to stick to arch=('i686' 'x86_64') as these are Arch Linux' officially supported architectures. If I had to build this package on ARM, I would follow bebehei's suggestion and use 'makepkg -A'.

bebehei commented on 2016-11-27 12:26


Yes and No.

Personally, I would stick to the Arch's package specifications of :
> If instead a package can be compiled for any architecture, but is architecture-specific once compiled, specify all architectures officially supported by Arch, i.e. arch=('i686' 'x86_64').

AFAIK Zearan does not use icinga2 on a Raspberry Pi. And I don't know how to assure support for other architectures, if you cannot test it as a maintainer.

Also It's a much cleaner way to use the AUR with an ARM-Based device while using makepkg with the option -A.

@bebehei I finally managed to compile icinga2 on Rasberry Pi. So, I believe you can add armv7h to arch array. I used large swap external magnetic drive, and it took hours to complete, but it did not crashed this time.

There was upgrade of boost libary in mean time, so I think they fixed this bug in upstream.

It seems like, something in /usr/include/boost/signals2/connection.hpp is broken. I don't know how to solve the problem exactly.

Using my google foo, i can find exactly 0 related problems.

Compiling on x86_64 with latest packages, everything works fine.

So it may be caused by a bad combination of versions in boost/icinga2/gcc. It may help, to downgrade one of theses and test. I'm pretty unsure if any of these downgrades really will solve the problem, but personally I'd give it a shot.

As I can see, boost got a small upgrade during the last month [1]. I would downgrade boost to 1.60.0-5 and give it a try. (Do not downgrade to 1.60.0-4, this version is known to fail!

Also downgrading gcc may help. [2]

Completely off topic: Are you compiling with clang or gcc? I once had an issue while compiling a big project with clang. Memory consumption grew steadly, until everything had been eaten up. clang segfaulted, but it was a clear OOM issue and after segfault all memory was free. After upgrading the memory of the machine, everything went fine.

You may also watch your memory-stats during compilation and double check the function of your swap. Also if your run your compilation in parallel, it causes obviously higher memory consumption.
