/usr/lib hack fixed. You'll need to likely uninstall your current version if you've force installed this to get rid of the orphaned /usr/lib64 files.

Attempting to build the package on an up to date Arch system yields the following output immediately upon entering build(): CMake Error: The source directory "/home/llewelyn/aur-jreen/src/jreen-1.2.1-build/ " does not exist.

Please fix this ASAP as it broke my system too. I think it was after a kernel update, caused by /usr/lib64 being an actual dir instead of a link to /usr/lib.

I had to uninstall "jreen" and then reinstall "filesystem" and "linux" (in that order) to fix it, all from a livecd + chroot.

As roentgen said, you have to change the build command like this:
cmake -DJREEN_FORCE_QT4=yes \
-DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=${_buildtype} \

Because of the severity and since this hasn't been fixed in the last 15+ days, I am marking it as out-of-date.

bobi commented on 2016-06-28 13:20

This package seems to be cause of a kernel panic I just had, as it seems to have broken the symbolic link /usr/lib64/ -> /usr/lib/

See this (from a USB boot):

# ls -R /usr/lib64

1.2.0 installed files in /usr/lib

1.2.1 tries to install in /usr/lib64, hence the conflict.

This can be fixed with -DCMAKE_INSTALL_LIBDIR=/usr/lib

jnbek commented on 2016-06-15 16:30

yea, I had that problem too, initially, I think it has to do with how the old PKGBUILD referenced ${srcdir} and the installation took place after makepkg/pacman 'deprecated' the use of said variable. Even after I removed the referring variable I got the conflicts; so I added --force to pacman to install it, then there was no further problems now that the srcdir variable is removed.

DrDeath commented on 2016-06-15 08:22

It conflicts with files from previous installation (can't remember wich ones now). After uninstalling it and trying to re-install it, there is still one conflict with /usr/lib64 :

error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
jreen: /usr/lib64 exists in filesystem

wich obviously cannot be removed or renamed.

md5sum should be changed to:

Updated build() for PKGBUILD

build() {
cd ${srcdir}/${pkgname}-${pkgver}-build

cmake -DJREEN_FORCE_QT4=no \
-DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=${_buildtype} \
-DGSASL_INCLUDE_DIRS=/usr/include \


JREEN_FORCE_QT4=no so if you have qt5 installed then cmake will detect and use it instead
GSASL_INCLUDE_DIRS=/usr/include as cmake can't detect gsasl for some reason

zizzfizzix commented on 2015-01-07 22:17

base-devel (which includes pkg-config) is a preliminary requirement to building anything, AUR assumes you have it installed already.

crazycactus97 commented on 2015-01-04 10:09

Had some problems building, It failed to found gsasl and other libaries. Solved by installing pkg-config, you should add it as a build dependency.

Also, thanks for mantaining the package!

lcartercondon commented on 2014-12-17 00:05

Am getting the same issue as JohnnySSH - have zlib installed but fails when making against libz.o

Not sure how to fix but see that the last commit for 1.2.0 mentions fixing compilation for cmake >=2.8. Not entirely sure if that's right (building with cmake 3.0.2 and it fails) but also not sure that it's an issue with cmake or something else entirely.

JohnnySSH commented on 2014-11-28 23:16

Am also getting an issue while building though it hasn't resolved itself :-(

Any suggestions??

Smetterleen commented on 2014-11-26 20:56

Well, the issue resolved itself...

Somehow libgsasl was not installed after all. I'm not sure why but today when trying to build it again, it noticed the missing dependency and install libgsasl...

I'm pretty sure I tried reinstalling libgsasl earlier, but hey, glad it's resolved!


zizzfizzix commented on 2014-11-16 23:38

nope, it builds just fine here

gsasl is installed:

Any ideas?

zizzfizzix commented on 2013-10-24 10:02

there you go guys, fixed
@pavelgood thanks for the patch!

rayman2200 commented on 2013-10-22 20:04

maybe you can build the .src.tar.gz with "makepkg --source" and provide it somehow.

I've tried to apply your patch and get stuck with the message

patching file jreen-1.1.1/cmake/jreenMacros.cmake
patch: **** malformed patch at line 5: MACRO (JREEN_WRAP_CPP outfiles )

Haven't worked with patches that much to solve it myself.

@sulhan: The project website appears to be down. As a workaround for now, you can get the source tarball from the Fedora mirror here:

It tries to use Qt5 when both Qt4 and Qt5 are available and fails to build. Please add "-DQT_QMAKE_EXECUTABLE=qmake-qt4" to force it using Qt4
