@patrick96 Thanks. I managed to get polybar-git to work so I will use that for now.

@pmatos, you'll need to show use the output of the actual cmake command as well. Those entries in the CMakeErrors.txt also appear for successful builds

Is it possible there's a missing dependency. I have a branch new arch install and get in cmake errors:

Determining if the pthread_create exist failed with the following output:

@patrick96, I was already trying to install it manually, but my Downloads folder being a symlink, it seems to have confused makepkg. Thanks for the feedback though.

patrick96 commented on 2018-06-06 09:43

@drScience, if anything this is an issue with your AUR helper. Manually doing

git clone
cd polybar
makepkg -sri

in a folder that doesn't have a polybar subfolder yet should still work.

In your case deleting the /home/drscience/Downloads/polybar should work, don't know why it doesn't in this case, but it doesn't really have anything to do with polybar.

Installation fails on running makepkg:

==> Making package: polybar 3.1.0-4 (Tue 05 Jun 2018 10:45:53 PM CEST) ==> Checking runtime dependencies... ==> Checking buildtime dependencies... ==> Retrieving sources... ==> ERROR: /home/drscience/Downloads/polybar/polybar is not a clone of Aborting...

I have tried deleting the downloaded folder .../polybar (only fillde with an empty subfolder src), but this didn't help.

@teretec: You probably have your permissions somehow messed up in that folder. Does it also fail in a clean clone of this repo?

teretec commented on 2018-06-03 15:11

Installation fails:

CMake Error at bin/cmake_install.cmake:47 (file): file INSTALL cannot copy file "/tmp/pamac-build-test/polybar/src/polybar/build/bin/polybar" to "/tmp/pamac-build-test/polybar/pkg/polybar/usr/bin/polybar". Call Stack (most recent call first): cmake_install.cmake:48 (include)

The fixed PKGBUILD is up. Builds should now work with gcc 8

patrick96 commented on 2018-05-07 15:45

The new gcc breaks the build. Please use clang for the time being, we will have the fix inside the PKGBUILD shortly.
