Orphaning as I don't use it and have no time for it.

After installation file /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.9.1/gems/xapian-full-1.2.3/lib/ have hardcoded path to source directory. If someones build packages in /tmp/ xapian will not work after reboot.

Corrected. Forgot to move a variable when I split in build and package functions.

There are bad paths in this package. When install, this package is installed into root (/) insteal of /usr/....

Updated with the correction presented below and the solution to the bug I was having as well (incompatible MAKEFLAGS options).

If someone want to takeover the package, just ask me.

jryan: your instructions are correct, but your patch wont apply, maybe it got screwed. On a mail from mikezackles he said he changed -R by -L instead of deleting the whole line (what your patch currently does).

So this is what has to be done, change line 20 on Rakefile:

ENV['LDFLAGS'] = "-R#{prefix}/lib"


ENV['LDFLAGS'] = "-L#{prefix}/lib"

and follow your previously posted instructions. Thanks both.

conan: this is how I built it,

mikezackles: any chance you write your solution here for mere mortals?

mikezackles commented on 2011-04-26 19:11

I had to unpack the gem and change LDFLAGS in the Rakefile to get this to build on my machine
