After applying the following, it builds successfully in clean chroot; the patch adds tbb dependency and submodule pull:

Hi, this package does not seem to currently build properly? It looks like it may be missing some (recursive) submodules.

In my testing, @wallace11 patch needs this stanza added to it:

After adding that it builds successfully in a clean chroot :)

This is missing a build dependency for cmake. Cmake is not part of base-devel, so build fails in a clean chroot.

traysh commented on 2022-09-01 23:13 (UTC)

I could fix the problem by editing /lib64/cmake/CGAL/CGALConfig.cmake. I think there is a but in this file, and I reported it to CGAL.

hey @cmsigler, Thanks for your answer. I tried to use you patch, but the build fails the same way with it. I also tried installing cgal-git from aur, but it did not help =(

cmsigler commented on 2022-08-30 11:41 (UTC)


Please grab the patch I posted below on 2022-08-04 and patch PKGBUILD, then run makepkg. I just tested building from this patched PKGBUILD and it was successful :) HTH.


traysh commented on 2022-08-25 23:29 (UTC)

can't build this package:

-- Using header-only CGAL CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:303 (find_package): Found package configuration file:


but it set CGAL_FOUND to FALSE so package "CGAL" is considered to be NOT FOUND. -- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!

any tips?

Hi all,

I tweaked my patch to get openscad-git to build successfully. Patch is here:

Again, HTH :)
