It does not seem to build:

./test_common_random /tmp/rand.dat 0
ERROR: main: cannot replay random sequence
make[2]: *** [Makefile:121: check_common_random] Error 1

Appreciate any help with this.

I'm sorry guys. I did not even realize I was still the owner of this package. I haven't been using Arch for a year or so now. I'll release it for someone else.

These extra compression options provide functionality that may be useful to other users. Ideally, I would like to provide them as optional dependencies but so far I couldn't find a way (they need to be present at link time).

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that the current AUR packages depending upon scotch succesfully link against -lbz2 without a big fuss as to the amount of patches needed.

Is it possible to remove the bzip2 dependency, including the seds to include -DCOMMON_FILE_COMPRESS_GZ ? It requires a lot of patches to other packages where scotch is a dependency (basically to link with -lbz2).

Sorry. I accidentally pressed "Flag package out-of-date" instead of "Notify of new comments".

eleftg commented on 2015-03-10 08:23

Thanks. Next time, please don't flag as out-of-date. The fact that curl suddenly became picky about SSL certificates has nothing to do with the "out-of-date"-ness of the package. The package used to work just fine up to a certain moment.

I had to remove the "s" from source=("https://..."), as curl complained: "curl: (60) SSL certificate problem: unable to get local issuer certificate". Cheers.

Your guess is correct and I am using yaourt.
Now successfully compiled
Thnk you for your assistamce.

@keepitsimpleengr: This output seems to agree with my initial guess. The package builds just fine. Then it proceeds with the tests but apparently you'are using an AUR helper not being able to send a key stroke in order to conclude the test suite. Have you tried pressing any key at that stage?

Anyway, we can easily verify the above theory, if you edit the PKGBUILD and comment the check() function (lines 56-61). This way you skip the test suite and just install the whole thing right after building.
