When I run makepkg, jed-snapshot fails to build due to the following missing dependencies: gpm, slang, and libxft.

If I manually install these dependencies, then makepkg succeeds.

I recommend adding a global depends= to your PKGBUILD file.

Excerpt from man PKGBUILD(5):

Note that makepkg does not consider split package depends when checking if dependencies are installed before package building and with --syncdeps. All packages required to make the package are required to be specified in the global depends and makedepends arrays.

Please add support for 'armv7h'.

Should be fixed in -3.

I get the following error while attempting to build

==> Starting prepare()...
sed: can't read src/Makefile: No such file or directory
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in prepare().

I cleared the whole thing and built from scratch, and now xjed is included. I should have done that from the beginning – I'm sorry for having wasted your time. I had built jed-git so many times before, I didn't expect anything to have gone wrong.

Not in the package I built:

$ pacman --query --list jed-snapshot
jed-snapshot /usr/bin/
jed-snapshot /usr/bin/jed
jed-snapshot /usr/bin/jed-script
jed-snapshot /usr/bin/rgrep
$ pacman --query --owns /usr/bin/xjed
error: No package owns /usr/bin/xjed

So either something went wrong here, or the /usr/bin/xjed found on your box is a copy from a previous installation.

xjed is built alright, but not included in the package.

What do you mean? xjed is already included.

kseistrup commented on 2019-12-19 17:37 (UTC)

Would you care to include xjed in the package (optionally: create a separate package for xjed-snapshot, but that seems a little unresourceful)?

This package does not pull from git, so it should be renamed to jed-snapshot.
