What is the error message on ARM? I currently don't have an ARM box to test.

Any chance we can get this working for ARM? I'm willing to help.

Thanks sitquietly, I updated the PKGBUILD with your suggestions.

With ocaml 4.01 you will need the batteries-2.1-ocaml-4.01.patch available here: and add to the PKGBUILD:

prepare() {
cd "batteries-$pkgver"
patch -Np1 -i ../batteries-2.1-ocaml-4.01.patch

Hi ouroboros

This issue is the result of the following bug that was introduced in ocaml 3.12:

The 2 build issues which currently affect this package are resolved by the following 2 commits to the batteries git repo.

There should be a new release of batteries soonish with these fixes included.

I can’t build the package. My build output looks like this (I hope it’s ok to just paste it here):

==> Starting build()...

So far, I haven’t been able to find anything related to this using Google, so some help would be appreciated.
