Hi, compiling the sources works fine, but I’m stuck with an error in the packaging stage:

libtool: error: invalid argument '/tmp/yaourt-tmp-andre/aur-pocketsphinx/pkg/pocketsphinx/usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages/pocketsphinx'

hi, this fix is needed for python3:

I use pacaur, but why do you think it's bad to have one directory for all AUR sources?

marcs commented on 2017-02-22 22:34

"SRCDEST variable could be the same directory for all packages", I didn't know that and is not my case but I strongly advise against it. Which aur manager are you using anyway ? You got my curious.

Fixed now.

@marcs The wiki doesn't agree with you :p

"File names of downloaded sources should be globally unique, because the SRCDEST variable could be the same directory for all packages."

Even without an AUR helper, all the sources can be in one directory.

sphinxbase and pocketsphinx install their LICENSE files in two different paths so no, there's no overwrite. If something goes wrong is a problem of the aur helper sw you are using.

doskoi commented on 2017-02-04 06:26

Yes sorry, in fact both pocketsphinx and sphinxbase downloads a LICENSE file, so the second overwrites the first when installed in batch with an AUR helper.
Maybe the PKGBUILD could assign them a more unique name?

License checksum verified, it is fine, maybe a problem with your download.
I expect to update the checksum when the copyright year will be updated to 2017.

doskoi commented on 2017-01-30 20:56

The checksum of the LICENSE file is wrong.

Hi, gstreamer0.10-base has disappeared from [community]...
The package can be compiled without it, but I'm not sure if it is fully functional.
Anyway, please fix it. Thank you.
