The below patch doesn't apply anymore. Here's one that does:

I'm seeing build failures. It seems that it's passing "-fcolor-diagnostics" to GCC, but only CLANG supports that option. The simple fix was to remove those flags (I assume it only affects build logs). Here's a patch:

Something is strange with this package, it's only building on one core instead all 8 like my makepkg.cfg says. I've been here for an hour now.

2 Questions:
1. What does the *-git mean in AUR packages? I'm new here so that's why I'm asking.
2. Could you please update line 4 to 0.11.5? That's the newest release of LIEF.
Thanks in advance!

Sorry for the late update. Thanks for the suggestions @yuyichao. Shared library should be built properly now.

I've looked at the headers code and json.hpp library is included in "LIEF/json.hpp", so I've left it unchanged. You're right that it should be reported upstream.

This still doesn't seem to provide, rather the static library libLIEF.a. -DBUILD_SHARED_LIBS=1 is needed for the shared library. (shared library build also needs

The compiled package also contains a extremely generic /usr/lib/json.hpp and it should probably be fixed upstream...

dobo commented on 2020-04-25 23:29 (UTC)

Thanks for reporting, should be fixed in pkgrel 2.

Adding the following to the package function is sufficient to bring the C API back (but I don't think this is necessarily the best solution).

make -C build install DESTDIR="${pkgdir}" install

eschulte commented on 2020-04-23 21:30 (UTC)

In particular requires the C API.

eschulte commented on 2020-04-23 21:29 (UTC) (edited on 2020-04-23 21:30 (UTC) by eschulte)

This is no longer installing the C headers or /usr/lib/ It looks like after the change in February to invoke CMake via the CMake configuration has been changed to not install support for the C API.

edit: typo

eschulte commented on 2020-01-16 20:22 (UTC)

It is possible to build the newest version 0.10.1. The following changes work for me, could they be applied?
