@graysky thanks that worked.

@juzz - Delete your source dir and try again. Builds fine here.

I Can't Install the package... I've tried manually and with the aur helper but I've got the same problem/error: "Error in Build()"

ninja: build stopped: subcommand failed. ==> ERROR: An error occurred in build(). The operation is about to be stopped... -> error in creation: lxc-git [alex@ThickPad ~]$

Full Terminal Output here:

Thank you for your attention

OK, I got a working PKGBUILD but it required building core/libcap with a modification to provide /usr/lib/libcap.a ... seeking an alternative now.

If you want to follow the discussion or REALLY need to build this now:

Here is the working PKGBUILD that has that requirement:

Huge headache ahead! There was a change to the meson build system like... a couple of days ago. Hence, broken package.

replace the prepare() and build() parts with this (no warrenty, it just 'didn't break' on my machine):

prepare() {
  cd "$_pkgname"
  sed -i \
    -e 's|"\\"-//Davenport//DTD DocBook V3.0//EN\\""|"\\"-//OASIS//DTD DocBook XML\\" \\"\\""|' \

build() {
  cd "$_pkgname"
  meson setup --prefix=/usr \
    --sbindir=/usr/bin \
    --localstatedir=/var \
    --libexecdir=/usr/lib \
    --libdir=/usr/lib \
    --sysconfdir=/etc \

Note: this will still not work - you have to get libcap yourself and build the static file (libcap.a)

tar xf libcap-2.64.tar.gz
cd libcap-2.64
make -j 8
cp libcap/libcap.a /usr/lib

Not the cleanest solution, but it "works". Hopefully @graysky comes up with a better solution than my hack.

Builds fine for me in a clean chroot
