@sergio.correia Thanks mate. I'll try it out later tonight. I'll report back :)

@linuxuser437442: hmm. there was an error caused by that test earlier that was fixed by, and this should be already present in the code, since we are getting it from a current git tree.

Could you check the current git revision you are trying to build? Enter the powershell directory and run "git rev-parse HEAD". I have just build revision e1f3494356e5a0a9a69d822a3d2129e71a1e5637 without issues.

Also, can you get more information on the failed test(s)?
Enter the test directory of libpsl-native (src/powershell/src/libpsl-native/test) and run the test manually "./psl-native-test". It should give a more verbose output of the 40 tests it runs.

I"m not budimanjojo, but I'm getting this error:

@budimanjojo: I have updated the PKGBUILD to not build while publishing, which might avoid the issue you are encountering. Could you give it a try?

budimanjojo commented on 2016-08-24 20:49

dotnet --version

@budimanjojo: sorry, I have been a bit busy the past days and couldn't reply earlier. I haven't seen this error before, but it shouldn't be trying to use icu55 instead of 57.

From the error message, I suppose it is giving problem during the publish stage?
Just to check, what's the output of "dotnet --version" you have there?

budimanjojo commented on 2016-08-24 03:25

I think my problem with the error above is because the compiler is using icu57 instead of icu55?

Nice to see that someone has created a working package for powershell. I've even add powershell to the command-line shells article of the wiki along with mentioning your package.

I keep getting this error on build.

Any idea on why this is happening?

@Vaporeon: the build system (dotnet-cli, I believe) performs some checks and at this point it's kind of hardcoded expecting a few distros, such as Ubuntu, and it checks os-release to obtain such info, which is why we temporarily use a Ubuntu-like os-release during build. We use proot instead of sudo to do the mount --bind.
