caddar: for more context, note than AUR packages assume base-devel is installed (including patch)

caddar commented on 2017-09-13 11:35

Yes and no. The hint with the AUR helper helped to resolved the problem - I tried to build the package manually and got an error complaining about missing command 'patch'... I use pacaur, and it seems it somehow doesn't complain or at least properly propagate the error that the patch was found, but never applied due to missing patch-utility.

After installing 'patch' everything worked, both manually and with the AUR helper. Thanks for the hint, should have known myself to try it manually...

caddar: The fact that the error still occurs in line 109 shows that the patch has not been applied. Otherwise it would have to be line 112. I double checked that the patch should be applied in the PKGBUILD, though. I therefore guess there is some kind of caching problem. A wild guess: Was there still an old src directory lying around before you ran makepkg? Or are you maybe using some AUR helper that caches package sources? I did not increase pkgrel because the compiled result does not change by applying the patch but this may confuse AUR helpers.

seems the push yesterday included some fix (0004), but I still get the same error (I think):

"volinodes.h:109:45: error: unitptr_t undeclared (first use in this function); did you mean intptr_t?"

Any ideas? I'm not familiar with c(++), so before wasting time for something that might be trivial.. (I checked that my openafs-git indeed includes the 0004-patch)

Ethyling: Thanks for the hint. I can reproduce the issue and will push a fixed version within the next hours.

Hi guys,

There is a build problem with file volinodes.h :
Got the error "‘uintptr_t’ undeclared (first use in this function); did you mean ‘intptr_t'".

I'm building it on a fresh system.

Hey Bevan,

openafs needs this patch:

to build with Linux 4.10. Cheers!

@mmrezaie: The tool to obtain an AFS token using Kerberos is called aklog, not afslog:
