a build problem how to fix. you have to run pacman -S multilib-devel. after can install lib32-ncurse-compat-libs

@calzonealamuerte: if you remove these two lines, you end up with ncurses5-compat-libs (i.e. the 64-bit binaries) in /usr/lib32, clearly not what you want. I still cannot repro the error, even in a chroot, so if no-one gives me some kind of trace (from config.log) I cannot do anything.

This package is still not installable. I have the same problem @TiTan4T had. I "fixxed" it by removed the following two lines from the PKGBUILD: export CC="gcc -m32" export CXX="g++ -m32"

With this lines removed, i didnt got the "configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables" message anymore.

@yar: just tried that and it works without issue. I did only the strict minimum:

$ mkdir chroot

$ mkarchroot chroot/root base-devel

[edit pacman.conf]

$ arch-nspawn chroot/root pacman -S multilib-devel

$ makechrootpkg -r chroot

@Corax try building with makechrootpkg and see for yourself

@TiTan4T: sorry for the delay, I was on holiday. Can you have a look at src/ncurses-6.1/config.log and copy the full error here?

I had installed "lib32-gcc-libs" but the building process still crashed.

I get the message "configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables".

Does somebody know a fix?

@adsun: see my comment below, it's part of multilib-devel and therefore an implicit dependency.

adsun commented on 2018-02-13 22:07

lib32-gcc-libs is a depends; without lib32-gcc-libs, lib32-ncurses5-compat-libs fails to build.

@sgar: lib32-gcc-libs is part of multilib-devel, which is the counterpart of base-devel but for building lib32 packages (see, meaning it is an implicit makedepend for all lib32 packages. I have to admit though that multilib-devel is not mentioned in, it probably should.
