@atomsvote: these are only metadata, they do not directly affect the process of building.

• Still works fine on 3.x line
• Read README again, notice that it was made whole eons ago - last tested with perl 5.10!
• Provide logs

I have only minor issues (warnings) with archlinux repo's wxgtk and audacity not being compiled against 3.x (had to rebuild it manually - so now there is no wxgtk2.8 on my system, x86_64 to be exact)

Hi, I also had the failed test problem when building this package on a new clean distribution, the problem is related to wxgtk version:


wxgtk is now version 3.0.2-4(
but perl-wx is only tested wit wxgtk 2.8 or 2.9 (

So in order to build this you need to change wxgtk version to the follow:


You need to change this on this package and perl-alien-wxwidgets dependency

In order to build this you must need to remove wxgtk, install wxgtk2.8 and rebuild perl-alien-wxwidgets(don't forget to change the version of wxgtk), then rebuild this package.

@Reded can you confirm if this work for you ?

Thx swiftgeek, I forgot about this.

[ -z "$DISPLAY" ] && makedepends+=('xorg-server-xvfb')
to make sure user has it if it will be needed
(I made similar changes to perl-wx-glcanvas if you would like to compare)

swiftgeek commented on 2015-05-19 15:22

Please add:
xvfb-run -a -s "-screen 0 1280x1024x24" make test
in case if [ -z $DISPLAY ] , so it could have chance of passing on headless machine

Also cleaning up PKGBUILD from would be nice
wxgtk is mentioned twice - in makedeps and deps which isn't proper

This is what i get as one of the errors, before the test report (mine is the same as Reded)

The library used 3.0 (wchar_t,compiler with C++ ABI 1008,wx containers,compatible with 2.8),
and your program used 3.0 (wchar_t,compiler with C++ ABI 1002,wx containers,compatible with 2.8)

It might be relevant

local/perl 5.20.2-1 (base)
A highly capable, feature-rich programming language

latest as far as I can see!

I'll try in a TTY and see how that goes.

So you can tray to compile the package without X. But it is strange for me.
Just out of curiosity, what's your version of perl?
