@thiagowfx Yes, I resolved all issues and everything should work properly. (Had to learn a bit more about PKGBUILD files first.)

I actually compiled monetdb a lot by myself as I wrote some custom functions in the past. I'm happy to help if there are any issues in the future.

thiagowfx commented on 2018-01-03 17:44

Did you manage to solve the user/group creation issue? Oh, and I apologize for my delay. Glad you decided to become a co-maintainer!

muesli4 commented on 2018-01-03 17:11

Will upload new version in an instant. Although I did not include everything suggested. (For that you can add dependencies to depends and builddepends and the configure script will then recognize it.)

I have added muesli4 as a co-maintainer

muesli4 commented on 2017-12-26 14:16

Are you back from vacation now?

thiagowfx commented on 2017-08-21 18:45

Hey artemklevtsov, thanks for your suggestion. I am currently in vacation so I cannot upgrade the package at the moment, but feel free to ask dome22xl to add you as a co-maintainer, or just wait a few more days. Thank you!

artemklevtsov commented on 2017-08-20 07:31

Depends should be fixed.

makedepends=(python python-numpy python2 python2-numpy zlib snappy libatomic_ops unixodbc geos gsl cfitsio gdal r)

depends=(r libatomic_ops snappy unixodbc gdal python)

Please add post install script. Like as this:

post_install() {
if ! getent group monetdb > /dev/null; then
groupadd --system monetdb

if ! getent passwd monetdb > /dev/null; then
useradd --system -c 'MonetDB user' -g monetdb -d '/var/MonetDB' -s /sbin/nologin monetdb
passwd -l monetdb &> /dev/null

mkdir -p /var/monetdb5/dbfarm
chown monetdb:monetdb /var/monetdb5 /var/monetdb5/dbfarm
chmod ug=rwx,g+s,o= /var/monetdb5 /var/monetdb5/dbfarm

mkdir -p /var/log/monetdb /var/run/monetdb
chown monetdb:monetdb /var/log/monetdb /var/run/monetdb
chmod ug=rwx,o= /var/log/monetdb
chmod ug=rwx,o=rx /var/run/monetdb

Also license is MPL.

Confirmed build / successful upgrade to 11.25.9

dome22xl commented on 2017-03-04 18:39

Updated to new Dec2016-SP2 Bugfix release

dome22xl commented on 2017-02-20 17:59

It is actually required by the vanilla package as of the 11.19 branch.

So yes just use the stock r package.

I will do some builds of my own soon sorry about that.

thiagowfx commented on 2017-02-19 23:57

Hi dome22xl,

I think R support is something extra, not supposed to be enabled in the vanilla package. Of course, people who wish to install monetdb with R support should be free to add it. Do you agree?

Also, FYI the correct now is just 'r', not 'r-lang'.

dome22xl commented on 2017-02-18 23:14

Glad to see some people are interested in this package only building it since 2012 i have never spoke to previous maintainer.

dome22xl commented on 2017-02-18 23:09

It does Symen was ok with stock when looking at his patch.

Will add him as another maintainer.

dome22xl commented on 2017-02-18 23:06

You need R to be built with the shared library for the linker to build things correctly.

dome22xl commented on 2017-02-18 23:04

Thankyou for the update however.

Your database will barf because if r-lang missing hence i created my own package not tried the stock R language package.

thiagowfx commented on 2017-02-16 21:59

Thanks for your fast response, dome22xl. I just updated it to the latest version.

dome22xl commented on 2017-02-16 18:20

For systemd i think would need units for the farm start / stop

monetdbd start /my/dbfarm

then units to stop / start each schema for your.

monetdb start schemaname

Thats just what makes sense also a mechanism to update which schemas you have with systemd also via

monetdb status

dome22xl commented on 2017-02-16 18:13

Hi thiagowfx i have added you the co-maintainer.

I haven't had time to update this in a while feel free.

thiagowfx commented on 2017-02-16 04:30

@symen: do you now how to fix the systemd units to make them work?

thiagowfx commented on 2017-02-16 04:21

Could you please add me as co-maintainer? I want to update this package.

symen commented on 2016-10-20 08:45

Here is a patch to make this package work:

Note that the provided systemd units don't work as is.

bertptrs commented on 2016-09-27 14:14

Current sources generate a 404, can you please update it?

Yggdrasil commented on 2016-06-04 16:24

Any reason for the aur package "r-lang" instead of the package "r" in extra? For me the package from the repository worked just fine.

I also had to add --without-rubygem to the configure-call as it otherwise fails to build ruby bindings. As i don't need it, i just disabled ruby.

dome22xl commented on 2016-05-30 15:22

Make sure you add an r-lang.conf and run ldconfig

cat /etc/
