If something breaks on PKGBUILD side, please bother me directly on freenode (usually available at #slic3r) XS compilation requires more than 512MiB of installed RAM, adding same amount of swap makes it build (tested on armv7h, Allwinner A13)

Perl update guide:

or since 5.26:

pacman -Qqo '/usr/lib/perl5/5.26' where 5.26 is OLD version of perl

This should be useful for determining if it's good time to update / whether it's your fault that Tests are failing:

swiftgeek commented on 2013-11-20 07:30

Should be fixed now - but PKGBUILD/yaourt isn't detecting conflicting slic3r-xs… dunno how it will work out in future

swiftgeek commented on 2013-11-20 07:05

Ok… didn't tested with also slic3r removed… that doesn't work

swiftgeek commented on 2013-11-20 06:45

Removed slic3r-xs-git dependency thanks to the tips from olasd
Please test this change and post comment with results in slic3r-xs-git package (because it's soon to be deleted)

20131119: Added new core dependency - perl-extutils-makemaker>=6.82 (The one bundled with perl is to old)
20130901: slic3r's PKGBUILD fails if downloaded git revision is different from installed slic3r-xs
20130615: Included hackish workaround for various bugs due to LANG oversensitivity ;)
20130615: Package version works again - eg.
20130408: SEDed-out dependency for growl and recurring "Running Slic3r under Perl >= 5.16 is not supported nor recommended"
20130408: PKGBUILD ported to pacman 4.1, except of git part (shallow clone)
20130119: Changed pkgver to 0 to stop misleading people
20130119: Added new core dependency - perl-encode-locale
20121123: Added new core dependency - perl-io-stringy
20121104: Improved git performance (shallow clone)
20121023: Added new core dependency - perl-math-convexhull-monotonechain
2012????: perl-xml-sax for Additive Manufacturing File Format (AMF) support (Thanks to Nick Østergaard)
2012????: perl-net-dbus for notifications support via any dbus-based notifier (Thanks to Nick Østergaard)
2012????: Added ⚠ warning ⚠ about cpan

Readme 1st:
• In case of any strange errors - downgrade perl below 5.16 ( )
"Running Slic3r under Perl >= 5.16 is not supported nor recommended\n"
• Remember to update this package once in while (often than "stable" snapshots are coming out), and always keep previous package as a backup in case of problems with upstream's merging process. I will not force anybody to update by changing pkgver.
• In case of missing/outdated dependencies please send a mail directly to me. Do not let installer to do it for you via CPAN, because it will create crazy perl setup/env.

Also with my new package/script changeling [ ]
it's possible to automatically (via cron) outdate entry in pacman's db, so next time You run eg. `yaourt -Syua` package will be updated, so You don't need to remember about updating this package regularly.

perl-extutils-makemaker>=6.82 is provided by perl-extutils-makemaker-aur

swiftgeek commented on 2013-07-28 02:17

Have You saw optdepends? Now delete your comments [this will be also deleted]

NotMyNameHere commented on 2013-07-28 02:15

First off-Thank you, great to see this in here.

I think your missing a dep however...

It functions without it I believe, but the GUI needs it.

On update make sure that slic3r-xs-git and slic3r-git are fetched from the same revision.

Due to yaourt and other AUR helpers shortcomings I can't make two packages that depends on one of them in one PKGBUILD :<
