Please don't flag this package out-of-date just because the version number displayed on AUR seems old. This is normal for VCS packages. As long as building the package works without problems, it isn't necessary to update the PKGBUILD here. makepkg will automatically retrieve the latest version when you build the package locally.

The wiki page about PKGBUILDs [1] seems very clear about this: "Members of "base-devel" should not be included in makedepends arrays."

libtool is needed for building, but it is absent for makedepends.

I remember that in wiki it is written to install base-devel group before building AUR packages, but I think that if this needs libtool for building, it should be there in makedepends.

@lilydjwg: I don't think this is possible with the current neovim build system.
The current build script does not support using system dependencies, but fetches and builds them separately (https://github.com/neovim/neovim/tree/master/third-party).

I guess this approach is easier at the moment, because they rely on fairly recent version which is a problem for some distributions.

That said, I guess a patch for upstream should be doable for anybody with good CMAKE knowledge.

I see it tries to download libuv and luajit sources when building. Is it possible to depend on the packages already installed instead of duplicating them?

Excellent - working for me now. Thanks!

fhahn commented on 2014-04-27 18:13

Thanks @nNa, I've added unzip to the makedeps and removed luajit and luarocks.

nNa commented on 2014-04-27 15:55

Could you install 'unzip' and then try again?

The solution can be found here.

I have the same problem without luarocks, but I'm not why, it does not seem to be related to luarocks.

petelewis commented on 2014-04-27 15:34

Okay, just tried on another machine. Without luarocks, I get this:

But with luarocks as a makedepend, it works. It does seem to get a bundled luarocks as part of the build process in any case, but doesn't seem to be working.

I'm afraid I know nothing about luarocks though.

Can provide a full log if helpful. All building done in clean chroots.
