I don't know where people keep getting this from, but please stop flagging the package out of date with links to old release announcements from a year ago. 0.6.11, from 2020-03-29, is the latest release as of right now.

just a friendly reminder even though this installs packages of jdk < 12 it will still attempt to use the default one which may be set to 12 like in my case.

You need to use sudo archlinux-java status and sudo archlinux-java set java-11-openjdk to figure out what you have and set something lower than 12 as default before attempting to install.

I'm getting this error:

  No CMAKE_Java_COMPILER could be found.

  Tell CMake where to find the compiler by setting either the environment
  variable "JAVA_COMPILER" or the CMake cache entry CMAKE_Java_COMPILER to
  the full path to the compiler, or to the compiler name if it is in the

I could set that env, but only this package (and multimc-git) have had this error googling it, this is arch with base-devel, and multiple java versions installed.

Why is the java-environment package necessary? The runtime alone seems to work well enough.

@CodingKoopa, you need Java 8. Vanilla Minecraft can run with an older version, but modded specifically demands 8.

I'm getting this when building this package: "The dependency jdk-openjdk demands version <10, but the most recent version is 11.0.2.u7-1.". I have both the "jdk-openjdk" and "jdk10-openjdk" packages installed, with the Java 11 runtime set as the default with the "archlinux-java" script.

@xiretza well, you were right... I forgot the backslash and now that I have placed it correctly, I realize I have not "fixed" the issue and I am back to square one.

@Monkeyfume: this is why I asked for a diff, you probably messed up the cmake command while "fixing" your broken java path. The last argument to cmake has to be .., you probably forgot a backslash to escape the newline at the end of your variable definition.

@xiretza here is my output before changing the PKGBUILD:

@ender4's suggestion from 2017-10-30 was "I was able to compile it with openjdk-9 installed by changing the cmake line of the install script to include "-DJAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk" ". I followed this and the No CMAKE_Java_COMPILER could be found. ... error went away. However now I am left with the second error, CMake Error: The source directory "/tmp/yaourt-tmp-monkeyfume/aur-multimc5/src/MultiMC5-0.6.2/build" does not appear to contain CMakeLists.txt.

@Monkeyfume: "I changed the PKGBUILD and now it won't build anymore" - sorry, can't really help you with that, at least not without a diff.

Monkeyfume commented on 2018-09-06 15:56

I was able to solve my previous issue from a few comments down, and compiled using ender4's suggestion of editing the PKGBUILD.

However, I now receive the error: CMake Error: The source directory "/tmp/yaourt-tmp-monkeyfume/aur-multimc5/src/MultiMC5-0.6.2/build" does not appear to contain CMakeLists.txt.

I have found the reason! I'm using proxychains to bypass some network issues in China, but I wasn't excluding localhost in the configuration. So the connection to localhost in the test program times out. Problem resolved when I set up proxychains properly.

@Towdium: can't reproduce, neither in clean chroot nor on an actual fresh install.
