looks like now $srcdir/src is used instead of $srcdir; the build still fail with /home/lesto/makepkg/robocode/src/src not found

EDIT: also $srcdir is uses for the .desktop file, that instead is located into $startdir, that happen to coincide with $srcdir if no BUILDDIR is used.

So use $srcdir for file in the src folder, and $startdir for file automatically downloaded by the Sources

I have build issue with

find: ‘/home/lesto/trizen/robocode/src’: No such file or directory

I think the problem here is the use of $startdir/src, instead $srcdir should be used:

$man PKGBUILD  | grep -A2 startdir
       This contains the absolute path to the directory where the PKGBUILD is located, which is usually the output of $(pwd) when makepkg is started. Use of this variable is deprecated and strongly discouraged.

It turns out makepkg fails because I have BUILDDIR set in /etc/makepkg.conf. I don't have this problem with other packages. makepkg.conf(5) man page says it has something to do with $startdir:

$ man makepkg.conf | grep -A4 BUILDDIR
    If this value is not set, packages will, by default, be built in subdirectories of the
    directory that makepkg is called from. This option allows setting the build location to
    another directory. Incorrect use of $startdir in a PKGBUILD may cause building with this
    option to fail.

ixrk, I am not able to reproduce this. Are you using makepkg? Have you tried deleting the folders and building again?

kraxor commented on 2014-04-30 09:52 (UTC) is out Not that it matters, as the package is flagged out-of-date since 2013-08-13. Requesting orphaning.
