In order order to update (and/or build), you may need to uninstall scilab then build it and finally reinstall it to avoid conflicts between the two versions.

For now, scilab fails to run when launched from outside a terminal.

@bartus is there anything I can do to solve it or is it an upstream bug?

bartus commented on 2020-05-16 14:13

@Xwag: this error is caused by including libxml headers in extern "C" section, forcing C style linkage.

Even though I've jdk8 and compiled the jgraphx 3.7.4, I still have the following issue:

checking lucene-core... no configure: error: Could not find or use the Java package/jar lucene-core used by Lucene (looking for package org.apache.lucene.LucenePackage) ==> ERRORE: Si è verificato un errore in build(). L'operazione sta per essere interrotta... :: Unable to build scilab - makepkg exited with code: 4

The apache-lucene package v.8.5.1-1 is installed, but it seems to contain only this file: /usr/share/licenses/apache-lucene/license.txt

EDIT: I've reinstalled the apache-lucene and now it has correctly populated the /usr/share/java/apache-lucene folder. Now the building process starts but it terminates with this build error:

/usr/include/unicode/ucnv.h:585:1: error: conflicting declaration of C function ‘void icu_67::swap(icu_67::LocalUConverterPointer&, icu_67::LocalUConverterPointer&)’ 585 | U_DEFINE_LOCAL_OPEN_POINTER(LocalUConverterPointer, UConverter, ucnv_close); | ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ /usr/include/unicode/uenum.h:68:1: note: previous declaration ‘void icu_67::swap(icu_67::LocalUEnumerationPointer&, icu_67::LocalUEnumerationPointer&)’ 68 | U_DEFINE_LOCAL_OPEN_POINTER(LocalUEnumerationPointer, UEnumeration, uenum_close); | ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ make[2]: [Makefile:883: src/cpp/libscifunctions_manager_la-dynamic_modules.lo] Errore 1 make[2]: uscita dalla directory «/home/andreak/tmp/trizen-andreak/scilab/src/scilab-6.1.0/modules/functions_manager» make[1]: [Makefile:844: all-recursive] Errore 1 make[1]: uscita dalla directory «/home/andreak/tmp/trizen-andreak/scilab/src/scilab-6.1.0/modules» make: *** [Makefile:1608: all-recursive] Errore 1 ==> ERRORE: Si è verificato un errore in build().

Which maybe is related to this bug: https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=959756

Meanwhile. I'm gonna add the packagebuild for the new package to GitHub as well. I generally want to host all the pkgbuilds on GitHub so we can work together on the different packages

TheGoliath commented on 2020-05-15 06:41

Yes, gonna do that later. Thought about I, too

petronny commented on 2020-05-15 06:20

We need a package called jgraphx-jre8 at version 3.7.4. @TheGoliath Could you add it to AUR?

petronny commented on 2020-05-15 06:18

@Xwang The build process is searching for javah. It's only provided in jdk8 and removed in jdk10.

TheGoliath commented on 2020-05-14 09:08

I've adopted Scilab again.

I'm gonna try and fix things up properly when I've got enough time. Meanwhile feel free to contact me (contact@xdfr.de) if you want to help with maintaining the package.

I'll also create an repository on GitHub where PRs can be sent to in the next few days
