Please handle submodules properly

here is a patch for the CMakeLists to fix the problem with the gitmodules and also a seeming non-functional variable

@magamo I believe that something in the .gitmodules file was wrong as the path for the SDL_GameControllerDB submodule directory was wrong, pointing to a non-existent external/SDL_GameControllerDB instead of the SDL_GameControllerDB directory in the git repo.

The hacky way of makepkg -so then modifiying the line

        path = external/SDL_GameControllerDB


        path = SDL_GameControllerDB

and then doing makepkg -esi works for installing the package (I haven't done any runtime tests yet as it's very late past midnight.)

About a week and a half ago, this package stopped building after a recent git commit. Thanks!

fatal: No url found for submodule path 'SDL_GameControllerDB' in .gitmodules ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build(). Aborting... error: failed to build 'sdl2-jstest-git-r82.aafbdb1-1':

Update is done.

Major changes

  • add sdl to dependencies

  • move docbook2x to makedepend

  • change pkgver

  • remove mandb update

mandb update removal:

it took to long and is annoying to wait for. if the user needs the manual a manual mandb is recommended or adding the pacman ondemand hook.

@rien333: yes, i will update the source array to the new gitlab url. i have adopted it because i am using it for myself to test joysticks. i release the update soon.

@rokku: I've see you've adopted this package (thanks, I marked it as orphaned). Still, it would be nice if you could do something about the "out of date" status of this package (even if the only thing you do is remove the status). As the out of data message reads, it would be nicest if you could update the source array to the new gitlab url:

What is outdated about this package exactly, and could someone fix this? EDIT: nvm, the sources moved. Unlike what the "outdated" package request states, this builds fine.

Still needs depends=(sdl)
