@cagprado, nice spot, thanks

Hello, thanks for maintaining the package. I'm getting an error with pythia8-config in which it cannot find the configuration file:

Error: cannot find valid configuration for Pythia 8

The script assumes (on line 19) that it can be found in /usr/share/Pythia8/examples but the package installs it in /usr/share/pythia/examples. Adding --prefix-share=/usr/share/pythia in configure seems to fix the issue.

@beojan, I tried installing LHAPDF and compiling. Everything works. I even built it in a clean chroot. I cannot reproduce your issue. Could you give more details, please?

kgizdov commented on 2018-10-14 11:55

@beojan, I can't reproduce your error, because I presume it has to do with LHAPDF{5,6}. At least that's what I can gather from your report. Could you please post the full procedure of how you build, what you have installed and a full log. You can send it to my email directly.

I'm getting the error

I build it with extra-x86_64-build

$ pacman -Fo /usr/bin/extra-x86_64-build
usr/bin/extra-x86_64-build is owned by extra/devtools 20180531-3

Just run extra-x86_64-build instead of makepkg.

@petronny, I would avoid polluting the environment for everyone, but I will try to mitigate with a better solution - possibly only depending on base or base-devel. To me this is an issue on your side with your specific way of building, which you still haven't detailed. Are you using makepkg or an AUR helper? It's quite strange that the PKGBUILD is not being re-read by whatever you use after the dependencies are satisfied. This is the problem in your case.

@kgizdov You may need to export it.

export _python_ver=$(python -c 'import sys; print(str(sys.version_info[0]) + "." + str(sys.version_info[1]))' )

@petronny, the line creates a variable that I use in a few places, not just in prepare. The package clearly wants python to be installed before it's built. But maybe the way you're running it causes this to not be evaluated. I will see if there is a better way. Still probably an issue on your side.

@kgizdov I got it. The problem is python is installed after the PKGBUILD is read.

_python_ver=$(python -c 'import sys; print(str(sys.version_info[0]) + "." + str(sys.version_info[1]))' )

This line should be in prepare().
