Build of the latest version keeps failing for me. The only error I'm finding is: dtrace: Command not found. Is it possible to build this version without dtrace?

I've created a patch which integrates systemd-sysusers for user management and cleaned up the files a little bit. What do you think about merging it?

the 'sar2pcp' utility provided by pcp requires 'perl-xml-tokeparser' and 'perl-date-parse' from AUR.

Without tokeparser you get:

# sar2pcp sa20.xml foo
Can't locate XML/ in @INC (you may need to install the XML::TokeParser module) (@INC contains: /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl /usr/share/perl5/site_perl /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/sh
are/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/lib/perl5/core_perl /usr/share/perl5/core_perl .) at /usr/bin/sar2pcp line 20.

and without date-parse you get:

# sar2pcp sa20.xml foo
Can't locate Date/ in @INC (you may need to install the Date::Parse module) (@INC contains: /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl /usr/share/perl5/site_perl /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/lib/perl5/core_perl /usr/share/perl5/core_perl .) at /usr/bin/sar2pcp line 21.

Iwan, question: Is there any particular reason you have this package '--without-qt'?

The reason I am asking is because I really need pmchart from pcp. By the way, you will have to do "export QMAKE=qmake-qt4" because pcp depends on qt4 and is not very smart about distinguishing it from qt5. I've tested this and it works fine.

Please let me know if you'd be willing to change the package to include the qt stuff, or if I should make a new package for "pmchart".

The problem was with my system. (T_T). I had some PERL evnironment variables, probably generated by cpan which screwed everything up.

package(), and specifically make install fails on my system.

Basically, it doesn't find this "../../../perl-pcp-pmda.list" file.
I don't understand yet what this file is needed for.

Created PCP-PMDA-1.15.tar.gz
make -f Makefile install DESTDIR=$DIST_ROOT; find $DIST_ROOT//usr -name .packlist -exec mv '{}' ../../../perl-pcp-pmda.list ';' ; if [ -s ../../../perl-pcp-pmda.list ] ; then _sfx=.gz; false && _sfx=.bz2; false && _sfx=.lzma; false && _sfx=.xz; sed -n -e '/\.bs$/d' -e 's/\.[0-9]pm$/&'"$_sfx/" -e "s@^$DIST_ROOT@@p" ../../../perl-pcp-pmda.list >../../../perl-pcp-pmda.list.tmp; mv ../../../perl-pcp-pmda.list.tmp ../../../perl-pcp-pmda.list; else echo "Arrgh ... no files to include in package via ../../../perl-pcp-pmda.list"; exit 1; fi; find $DIST_ROOT//usr -name perllocal.pod -exec rm -f '{}' ';' ; find $DIST_ROOT//usr -name \*.bs -exec rm -f '{}' ';' ; find $DIST_ROOT//usr -name -exec chmod 755 '{}' ';'

Like Silberling already said it would be awesome if you could add armv7h to the arch list (its working fine)

Silberling commented on 2015-04-20 07:46

Compiles and seems to work on Raspberry Pi 2 (armv7h). Would it be possible to add it to arch list?

@alien333 Glad you got it working.

The systemtap maintainer just added python2 as a dependency on 17-Apr:
That's probably why it worked the second time around with yaourt.

alien333 commented on 2015-04-19 06:17

@bfritz i ended up using yaourt to install the package and its dependencies automatically and everything went perfect.
thanks for you help anyway
