@Perdu no, it's not, and I have no idea why the check() function is being used like this.

Is running computing-intensive tests on build necessary?

@berab: Then there's no point in having checks in the first place. I doubt this is the encouraged way to resolve such issues in any help/docs.

Or just gpg --recv-keys 04C367C218ADD4FF...

berab commented on 2023-09-22 18:04 (UTC)

You should add --skippgpcheck flag in case you have PGP signature error. Reading --help helps...

My system has some problems with locales, causing this package to fail it's tests:

Skipping the test creates the package:

I think there's something wrong with my locale:

$ locale
locale: Cannot set LC_CTYPE to default locale: No such file or directory
locale: Cannot set LC_MESSAGES to default locale: No such file or directory
locale: Cannot set LC_ALL to default locale: No such file or directory

I said this multiple pages earlier in these comments, this is for PGO, just delete --enable-optimizations and it's in my opinion easiest solution to all these bs problems. I doubt you will notice any performance decrease.

Hmm. You're saying it skips the tests for you in that situation without a patch such as this?

I should mention: this build is occurring inside Docker so it's likely tests will fail. Perhaps I want -n instead.

Can't reproduce. I am using up to date Arch Linux as of 2023-06-07. Works for me with non modified makepkg.conf in clean chroot set up this way:

As well as normally on my machine using custom makepkg.conf (only difference is -march=native).
