@Bachsau: gnome-common as a makedepend, libidl2 a dependency, seems like pacaur is at fault ignoring the dependencies.

I always get a "failed to verify integrity or prepare orbit2 package" when trying to install this via pacaur. Figured out it needs "gnome-common" and "libidl2" to compile correctly.

drws commented on 2019-06-01 21:10 (UTC)

Yeah, I see. After manually installing libidl2 beforehand, everything goes through OK. Apparently it's a pacaur's bug.

PhotonX commented on 2019-05-28 05:27 (UTC)

Not sure how this can happen since libidl2 is already a dependency for orbit2. Could you please check if libidl2 is installed?

This package does not build for me:

configure: error: Package requirements (    libIDL-2.0 >= 0.8.2     glib-2.0 >= 2.8.0   gobject-2.0 >= 2.8.0    gmodule-2.0 >= 2.8.0) were not met:
Package 'libIDL-2.0', required by 'virtual:world', not found

I had the same failure, and the suggested fix does work. What I find interesting is that is 19 bytes, the same length as, but seems to be the first 19 bytes of A clean reinstall using yaourt produces the same results.

shutter failed for me, too. It file wasn't a symlink, but a regular file:

root@notebook /usr/lib # ls -la libORBit-2 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 19 11. Mär 09:23 -> -r-------- 1 root root 19 11. Mär 09:23 -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 456376 11. Mär 09:23 root@notebook /usr/lib # rm root@notebook /usr/lib # ln -s root@notebook /usr/lib # ls -la libORBit-2 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 19 11. Mär 09:23 -> lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 19 11. Mär 09:27 -> -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 456376 11. Mär 09:23

It now works again.

pat-s commented on 2019-03-06 22:04 (UTC)

I have the same error as @severach. Due to this, shutter fails to build for me.

First I checked the permissions as I got "permission denied" errors from other apps

ls -ld /usr/lib/ Wed 06 Mar 2019 10:57:39 PM CET -r-------- 1 root root 19 Mar 6 22:47 /usr/lib/

After opening the permission, the permission error got away but I faced the following error

"/usr/bin/perl" "-Iblib/arch" "-Iblib/lib" -MGnome2 Gnome2 maps > blib/lib/Gnome2/enums.pod Can't load 'blib/arch/auto/Gnome2/' for module Gnome2: /usr/lib/ file too short at /usr/lib/perl5/5.28/core_perl/ line 193.

@cpharlok: Thanks for the proposed solution! I wonder if it is a problem which is due to some error in packaging, since already three people are affected by it. Are there any further observations which could help to track it down?

cpharlok commented on 2019-02-11 23:01 (UTC)

@severach: The symlink may be broken, just recreate it

PhotonX commented on 2019-01-24 16:42 (UTC)


Sorry, I can't reproduce it. Did you try building in a clean build directory? Could you please paste the complete output?

ldconfig: File /usr/lib/ is too small, not checked.
ldconfig: /usr/lib/ is not a symbolic link

I see, thanks for figuring it out! Surprising that the current gnome-common library still suits for compiling orbit2. :) Added gnome-common as makedep in a silent update, once again.

xantares commented on 2018-09-28 16:24 (UTC)

same error, I installed gnome-common and it built fine.

PhotonX commented on 2018-09-28 14:01 (UTC) (edited on 2018-09-28 14:08 (UTC) by PhotonX)

@xiretza: Thanks for the hint, added the make dependency in a silent update.

On a second thought, gnome-common is for Gnome3 and the Gnome2 equivalent is libgnome which, however, would be a circular dependency...

xiretza commented on 2018-09-28 12:38 (UTC)

seems like a makedepends=('gnome-common') is in order:

==> Starting prepare()...
  -> Running autogen. Please wait...
You need to install the gnome-common module and make
sure the script is in your $PATH.
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in prepare().

happycadaver: That was my temporary fix from revision -4. I thought, I found a better one in -5 but looks like I was wrong.

happycadaver commented on 2018-09-27 17:28 (UTC)

I changed the PKGBUILD (I use part from the Previous Version): libname-server-2.a) noextract=(libname-server-2.a) prepare() { cp libname-server-2.a ORBit2-$pkgver/src/services/name/

Now i have no Problems to Build: Finished making: orbit2 2.14.19-5 (Thu 27 Sep 2018 07:25:35 PM CEST)

Let's continue the bug hunt in the forums:

confirm pkgrel = 5 problem with libname-server-2.a

clean building directory, both standard and clean chroot give the same error

gcc: error: libname-server-2.a: No such file or directory

happycadaver commented on 2018-09-27 17:20 (UTC)

It doesn't work for me, even with a clean directory. It says: gcc: error: libname-server-2.a: No such file or directory. You deleted this in PKGBUILD, just why? - cp libname-server-2.a ORBit2-$pkgver/src/services/name/

xantares commented on 2018-09-27 17:16 (UTC)

same error: libname-server-2.a: No such file or directory

even if I add "make -j1" it still doesnt build, are you sure issue was with makeflags?

glowingsword commented on 2018-09-27 17:13 (UTC)

And for me too. Also gcc: error: libname-server-2.a: No such file or directory But I have a /usr/lib/libname-server-2.a in it's place.

renickbell commented on 2018-01-14 08:52 (UTC)

After emptying the build directory and trying again, it built fine. Thank you.

PhotonX commented on 2018-01-13 18:37 (UTC)


The next patch would create the file, which already exists! Skipping patch. 1 out of 1 hunk ignored


Do you build in an empty folder? Looks like there is a file conflict in the build directory.

renickbell commented on 2018-01-13 17:52 (UTC)

I'm experiencing a build failure. Can you suggest a solution?

Thanks for the hint, I changed the URL in a silent update.

haawda commented on 2017-10-11 19:27 (UTC)

Under I find nothing about ORbit2, even the search fucntion on that side fails. You might better use as URL
