I can confirm that lua can be built by just upgrading the lua version to 5.3.4 and the md5sums.

The PKGBUILD is currently broken for x86_64-w64-mingw32. The 32 bit libraries clobber the 64 bit ones, or causing the 64 libs to not get built.

You can see that they're the same:
find /usr -iname "*lua*dll*" -exec md5sum {} \;

Care to replace !libtool by staticlibs in the options array ?

naelstrof commented on 2013-04-06 05:57

I'll do my best. I have about 15 packages I have to update. It may take a while.

Schala commented on 2013-04-06 04:38

Oh! And be sure to divide the install into package(). Pacman 4.1 now deprecates PKGBUILDs without package()

Schala commented on 2013-04-06 04:35

I recommend always use the top mirror on mirror status, even if it's not in your country.

naelstrof commented on 2013-04-06 03:43

Ah sorry, my mirror was out of date. Switched mirrors and figured it out. Thanks!

Schala commented on 2013-04-05 07:20

5.2.2 went into community the other day.

naelstrof commented on 2013-04-04 22:20

I'm unsure why you flagged out of date, I'm assuming because of the normal lua package getting a new pkgbuild version?

I don't know how I can incorporate their changes as I don't have access to their pkgbuild.

I changed the pkgbuild version to match and reuploaded, unsure of what else you want me to do.

naelstrof commented on 2013-03-30 18:36

There you go! Thanks for figuring that out for me.

naelstrof commented on 2013-03-30 16:15

Oh nice, I'll update the pkgbuild as soon as I boot into Linux.

Schala commented on 2013-03-30 00:10

Aha! I found the problem! Parallel building isn't supported. Add -j1 after make to enforce it.

naelstrof commented on 2013-03-29 16:04

Perhaps! If you manage to fix it I'll update the package. It's hard for me to debug it when it compiles normally for me.

Schala commented on 2013-03-29 06:36

Hmm... Perhaps there's a make flag or configure flag to increase verbosity?

naelstrof commented on 2013-03-27 23:50

I'm unsure what to do :(. Perhaps monitor your std::err stream to see if you're simply missing the error message there, or try manually compiling it.

Schala commented on 2013-03-27 23:28

Well, I did that. I was a bit alarmed that makepkg told me it was 55 megs smaller than my previous build. It makes me wonder if anything was disabled this time. Anyway, I'm still getting the same error, I even rebuilt mingw-w64-crt with the patched mingw-w64-gcc but still Lua gave me that error.

naelstrof commented on 2013-03-20 04:28

Can you try recompiling/reinstalling your mingw-w64-gcc? There was a recent texinfo update that really messed it up.

Recompiling it will give you errors which can be fixed with the patch I made here (Disregard that it's in a mingw-w64-gcc-base forum, it's a normal gcc project patch):

Schala commented on 2013-03-20 01:34

No... hmm... It gives me this:

i686-w64-mingw32-ranlib liblua.a
i686-w64-mingw32-gcc -o luac.exe luac.o liblua.a -lm

naelstrof commented on 2013-03-17 16:38

It builds normally for me on a 64 bit system, are you running a 32 bit system?

Schala commented on 2013-03-17 16:22

The PKGBUILD seems to fail with an unspecified error. Looking at it, it doesn't seem like anything's wrong though.

naelstrof commented on 2013-03-17 15:29

Hey sorry it took me so long to update, I've been busy and I'm unsure of how many people use this package anyway. Please email me if you need something critically and I'll do it immediately.
