For problems with conda, simply "conda deactivate", it will install. No need to purge path or remove anaconda.

On that note, would you consider adding alsa-lib, libmpdclient, wireless_tools, jsoncpp and curl as makedepends? They have to be present at build time for the modules to work and when building in a container or chroot that's the way to ensure that the optdepends actually work.

Even when building directly on the target machine the current PKGBUILD requires the user to install the desired optdepends before compiling the package, which is rather counter-intuitive for optdepends.

@patrick96 I usually update with

TMPDIR=/tmp aursync -cuT --no-view

so it builds in a container.

@Chais: I think this is caused by aurutils calling git rev-parse on the aur repo. The repo with the PKGBUILD probably didn't get updated properly and somehow ended up in detached HEAD mode. This looks like an aurbuild issue, what command did you use?

Chais commented on 2018-03-12 15:18

With aurutils I have the problem that I get the following error when updating the package:

fatal: HEAD does not point to a branch

But only when updating. Not when I delete the directory and the repo is downloaded anew. Not sure if this is problem with aurutils, makepkg or the PKGBUILD.

@darm use the latest PKGBUILD do a clean build. We pushed a fix for that yesterday

Latest build is failing for me when linking cxx static library libxpp.a with the following message:

You got it. I always forget that

Would you mind updating the .SRCINFO? Your last update 2017-12-04 didn't include it
