Yes, the empty files are the same in the makepkg pkgdir, the package tarball, and in the final installed files.

Plenty of disk space. Tried rebuilding / reinstalling several times.

Anyway, I can work around this by commenting the installer line in the PKGBUILD, running it manually, then running makepkg. So it's no big deal. Maybe someone else will have the same issue and see these comments. Thanks!

Ok, then I don't think there's anything wrong with the PKGBUILD.
If you untar your package file (the one you would install using pacman -U) into a new directory, are there still empty files?

You probably already checked these, but just in case:
Are you low on hard disk space?
If you haven't already, you could try rebooting, rebuilding, and reinstalling the package.

No, those script files are normal. Maybe the installer is unable to detect the architecture in the makepkg environment?

kjslag commented on 2015-04-05 21:12

That's strange. Are the files in your build directory
pkg/mathematica/opt/Mathematica/Executables/
also empty?

The Mathematica 10.1 installer does not work quite right under the control of makepkg on my system. Most files are installed correctly, but several are installed as empty files, most importantly the actual executables in /opt/Mathematica/SystemFiles/FrontEnd/Binaries. This does not happen if I run the installer outside of makepkg (using the same arguments).

The PKGBUILD worked fine for previous releases.

Any ideas?

A word of caution: after upgrading to 10.0.2 the fonts looked terrible.
However, I had several font packages installed (freetype2-infinality, fontconfig-infinality, ttf-ms-win8).
Eventually, I found that I could solve it in one of two ways:
A) either uninstalling fontconfig-infinality, which was somehow doing a bad font substitution,
B) or uninstalling ttf-ms-win8, which was providing a font that fontconfig-infinality could not substitute.
The result of A) and B) is different, but in any case the font improves a lot.
For the moment I'm sticking with A).

Updated to 10.0.2. This release fixed the font issues that I was having :)

# To build this package you need to place the mathematica-installer into your startdir
# If you don't own the installer you can download a trial version at http://www.wolfram.com/mathematica/trial
