Thanks Xyne!

I have uploaded an updated version of the PKGBUILD with a "prepare" function and proper quoting around the path variables. You can find it here:

Thanks for maintaining this package.

@felixonmars, thanks for your PKGBUILD review!

The " || return 1" thing is not needed anymore as it's been default behavior.

Also, please quote "$srcdir" and "$pkgdir", thanks!

udunits2 is now provided by community/udunits

This package depends on linpng, so need recompile after libpng/libtiff update of 2012-02-05

Package obsoleted to be removed: default ncview is now in version2. Use ncview package.

graziano commented on 2010-11-07 11:03

Got it.

XavierCLL commented on 2010-11-06 16:53

the location of install ncview2 is wrong: /usr/usr/bin/ncview

big_gie commented on 2010-10-14 14:13

Thanks, it works now ;)

graziano commented on 2010-10-14 14:12

Sorry, my fault.

I think the makefile is trying to install in /usr, not $pkgdir/usr...

Unflagged as out of date. A 2.0 release has not been made yet, it's just a beta, and has quite different dependencies. Make a ncview-beta (or ncview2) package if you want it.

I can't build:
checking /usr/include/ppm.h usability... no
checking /usr/include/ppm.h presence... no
checking for /usr/include/ppm.h... no
Error: user specified ppm include directory does not have ppm.h!

I can build only by commenting "--with-ppm_incdir" and "--with-ppm_libdir"...

Also, it tries to install in /usr, I think make install wants prefix=$pkgdir/usr, not prefix=/usr

nc_overlay.* is not present, had to comment it out.
