You can remove provides, it doesn't make sense for a package to provide itself. This also applies to several of the other packages you currently maintain (and they shouldn't conflict with themselves either).

This is the result obtained through the extra-x86_64-build:

==> Starting build()...
Error: Program ocamlc not found in the tree or in PATH
 (context: default)
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

You need to add ocaml to makedepends=.

Thanks for your suggestion. Updated!

I think you should be using the compile.patch in ${srcdir}, that is
patch src/ ${srcdir}/compile.patch instead of
patch src/ ../../compile.patch.
The latter will fail to build when using devtools

Thanks for your solution! Applied in current PKGBUILD.

Still failed, but I fixed it locally by adding compile.patch to the sources array and regenerating the sha256sums:

source=(${url}/releases/download/${pkgver}/${_pkgname}-${pkgver}.tbz compile.patch)

sha256sums=('3440c2b882d537ae5e9011eb06abb53f5667e651ea4bb3b460ea8230fa8c1926' 'ef631f2298d6ac15762f35a6eb3ff7e018d12cc86f4073e514bef24ebb212ecc')

PKGBUILD updated.


build() {
    cd ${_pkgname}-${pkgver}
    patch src/ ../../compile.patch
    dune build -p easy-format


build() {
    cd "${srcdir}/${_pkgname}-${pkgver}"
    patch src/ ../../compile.patch
    dune build -p easy-format

It's a path error. But I can't reproduce it. weird!

If it still failed, PM condy @ freenode.

The patch exists, but does not apply.

[chris@gaura build]$ ls ocaml-easy-format/

PKGBUILD compile.patch easy-format-1.3.2.tbz

[chris@gaura build]$ cd ocaml-easy-format/

[chris@gaura ocaml-easy-format]$ makepkg

Make sure the compile.patch file exists.

git clone <>, and you will see the compile.patch file.
