Updated to 3.1.5.

DJ_L commented on 2016-08-11 23:26

mober: at best guess, you need to update gnustep-make to 2.6.8-2 (or presumably -3).

EDIT: You probably already did this, but didn't update the config file. There should be an /etc/GNUstep/GNUstep.conf.pacnew file, which needs to replace the /etc/GNUstep/GNUstep.conf (if you've never modified that file). If you have modifications to the GNUstep configuration, change all instances of /usr/sbin to /usr/bin as it was incorrect in versions prior to gnustep-make-2.6.8-2.

If this isn't it, I'll try and get a first hand look at it a bit later tonight or tomorrow as 3.1.5 was released today.

GNUStep-Make has been fixed, bumped release to remove unneeded GNUSTEP_SYSTEM_ADMIN_TOOLS parameter.

DJ_L commented on 2016-07-29 17:21

Looks like this is fixed in gnustep-make-2.6.8-2.

DJ_L commented on 2016-07-23 19:40

Okay, so gnustep-make-2.6.8-1 is broken. So was gnustep-make-2.6.7-1, but it happened to work with this package. The quick fix is:

# sed 's@/usr/sbin@/usr/bin@' -i.bak /usr/GNUstep/GNUstep.conf

I've created a bug (with patch) for the package at

DJ_L commented on 2016-07-23 18:33

Well, fakeroot is not the culprit. Looks like gnustep-make had some changes.

test -d $pkgdir/usr/sbin && install -v -d -m 0755 $pkgdir/usr/bin && mv $pkgdir/usr/sbin/* $pkgdir/usr/bin && rmdir $pkgdir/usr/sbin

at the end of package() {} section of the pkgbuild as you suggested in your previous post. As a result the binaries are moved in the correct /usr/bin directory.

Thanks. Maybe you will be able to reproduce this bug on your host and find a permanent solution.

pohl7589 commented on 2016-07-23 04:42

My hosts were installed both after and before your install date. I noticed I have fakeroot version 1.21-1 installed. Yours is one version behind. Could this be the difference?

DJ_L commented on 2016-07-22 18:15

Okay, I'll get a new host built tomorrow morning (maybe tonight) and pkgbuild updated to handle this case. Hopefully I'll actually be able to see the issue. I'd still like to figure out why these hosts behave differently. I'm kind of grasping at straws here. Do you happen to know when your testing hosts were brought online? My build host for this package was brought online 20160418. Earliest version of pacman was 5.0-1, fakeroot has only ever been 1.20.2-1. Not really sure what else to look at. I was guessing maybe the pacman-4.2 update, when the symlink handling was changed, but that was back in December 2014 and is unrelated to makepkg. Fakeroot install seems to be the difference (which is default on my system)...

Sorry so long, but really curious why this works here and not there.

I tried on desktop (x86_64), laptop (x86_64) and odroid C2 (aarch64) with up to date arch linux installations. On all hosts the binaries are going to be installed under /usr/sbin.

$ git clone
$ makepkg -s
$ ls -la /home/alarm/aur/sogo/pkg/sogo/usr
drwxr-xr-x 5 alarm alarm 4096 Jul 22 19:05 include
drwxr-xr-x 5 alarm alarm 4096 Jul 22 19:05 lib
drwxr-xr-x 2 alarm alarm 4096 Jul 22 19:05 sbin

The symlink "/usr/sbin" is pointing to "bin" (typo in previous post).

Did you use something other than makepkg to build? Did you make any changes other than adding aarch64 to the arch array? A plain 'make DESTDIR=$PWD/dest install' does install those files to ./dest/usr/sbin, while in package(), the symlink is accounted for and the files are correctly installed into $pkgdir/usr/bin. I'm not clear on exactly how this works, I assume some fakeroot magic.

While I could work around this, something like 'test -d $pkgdir/usr/sbin && install -vdm755 $pkgdir/usr/bin && mv $pkgdir/usr/sbin/* $pkgdir/usr/bin && rmdir $pkgdir/usr/sbin' at the end of the package function, it shouldn't be necessary. Something is working differently on your system vs my build host.

You mentioned that /usr/sbin was a link to /bin. I'm not sure if that was just typing fast or if it is broken (or if even related). /usr/sbin should be a symlink to bin (not /bin, nor a hard link - though that would probably work as well if /bin weren't a symlink itself). If your original message was not a typo, then that might an issue, I don't know.

Anyway, the string of commands above will work around it, but I'm not sure that it is appropriate to work around it. As to where this is defined in the build machinery, it's not quite that simple. This is defined in GNUStep's environment. That said, there is a makefile that specifies FHS layout and moves these to the sbin directory in the install prefix. I'll try the build on a fresh host this weekend and see if something has changed since my build host was brought up, but I suspect not.

Package 3.1.4 does not install. Tried 'x86_64' and new 'aarch64' architecture.

$ sudo pacman -U sogo-3.1.4-1-aarch64.pkg.tar.xz

debug: checking possible conflict: /usr/sbin/
debug: found file conflict /usr/sbin, packages sogo and (filesystem)
debug: returning error 49 from _alpm_sync_check : conflicting files
error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
sogo: /usr/sbin exists in filesystem
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.

/usr/sbin is a link to /bin and is therefore treated as a file rather than a directory. I extracted the package and files sogo-ealarms-notify, sogo-slapd-sockd, sogo-tool and sogod want to be installed in /usr/sbin rather than in /usr/bin.

In which file is specified where the binaries are going to be installed?

Updated to 3.1.2. Angular was updated again (rc5), clear browser cache as usual.

DJ_L commented on 2016-05-19 03:13

Updated to 3.1.0. FYI, AngularJS was updated to 1.1.0rc4 in this release. Make sure that you clear browser cache if you experience any anomalies in the web interface.

DJ_L commented on 2016-05-05 01:09

Note that SOGo-2.x development continues and new package sogo2 is in AUR.
