Please add 'armv7h' to the list of architectures.

Thank you very much for the patch.

@dseg: I've found the cause for the problem: In the sed scripts, you are using the underscore character '_' as delimiter for the s command. However, as my $pkgdir does contain such an underscore, the command has one underscore too many, causing the sed command to fail. I'd recommend using a pipe symbol as seen in the following patch:

>In the aur git repo, .SRCINFO has pkgrel = 3 but PKGBUILD has pkgrel=4. Those should match, normally.
Exactly. Very sorry, I haven't noticed that.

By the way, no sed error for me.

In the aur git repo, .SRCINFO has pkgrel = 3 but PKGBUILD has pkgrel=4. Those should match, normally.

Are you sure you have actually committed the latest version of the PKGBUILD? the sed command in the build() function fails with a syntax error. Unless you are using a different version of sed, that should fail with yaourt as well, I've tried plain makepkg and pacaur and both fail.

.SRCINFO is correct, was updated to the latest.

>I am still seeing the same build error as Voice reported a year ago.
Hmm, I've just checked, and got no errors on build.

$ yaourt -S --noconfirm jed
# buildlog

nirnakinho commented on 2016-05-28 12:36

You forgot to update the .SRCINFO file, and I am still seeing the same build error as Voice reported a year ago.

If you are interested in using the more recent development version of JED,
please try using the following package.

Failure report

Seems like maybe this pkg would be better as -git from snapshots since he otherwise so seldom updates it.

here's build fix because without freetype headers won't be found during build:

I'm not actually sure what the output difference is, but per the jed build instructions, a make clean should be done before the make. This is mentioned during the build process as well.

Obviously we get an executable that runs afterward, and I haven't had any segfaults or any problems at all, but it's probably a good idea to follow that advice since the jed make scripts are somewhat different.
