@kirillnow @marscher @nhermosilla14 A bit late, but thanks for the tips; had some time to clean up my AUR packages and took the opportunity to fix the compilation errors in newer versions. I still have the packages installed, so I haven't had the need to do any reinstalls yet. Let me know if things break again.

I managed to build it, but I don't really know how to make a patch to get it added to this package. Just so that anybody else who needs this can use it, this is what I did:

  1. Applied the "conflicting types" patch available down here.
  2. In the file src/shared/missing.h : Remove lines 207 to 211
  3. In the files src/readahead/readahead-common.c src/libudev/libudev-device.c src/shared/util.c : Add #include <sys/sysmacros.h> With that done, it builds successfully.

There seems to a conflict with a recent glibc header and an internally used function to create memory cached pages:

CC src/readahead/readahead-collect.o In file included from src/readahead/readahead-collect.c:57: ./src/shared/missing.h:208:19: error: conflicting types for 'memfd_create' static inline int memfd_create(const char name, uint64_t flags) { ^~~~~~~~~~~~ In file included from /usr/include/bits/mman-linux.h:111, from /usr/include/bits/mman.h:34, from /usr/include/sys/mman.h:41, from src/readahead/readahead-collect.c:38: /usr/include/bits/mman-shared.h:50:5: note: previous declaration of 'memfd_create' was here int memfd_create (const char __name, unsigned int __flags) __THROW; ^~~~~~~~~~~~

I will try to come up with a patch.

I couldn't get the commands below to work if they were put before ./configure but the package will build fine if you put them **after** this line in the PKGBUILD: make -f Makefile -f ./Makefile.extra BUILT_SOURCES

kirillnow commented on 2017-11-18 09:54 (UTC)

To fix 'conflicting types' C error, add this before ./configure in PKGBUILD: sed -i -e "/bus_error_mapping_lookup/s/size_t/unsigned int/" src/libsystemd/sd-bus/bus-error-mapping.c sed -i -e "/lookup_errno/s/size_t/unsigned int/" src/shared/errno-from-name.h sed -i -e "/lookup_af/s/size_t/unsigned int/" src/shared/af-from-name.h sed -i -e "/lookup_arphrd/s/size_t/unsigned int/" src/shared/arphrd-from-name.h

@czipperz: Packages from base-devel group are assumed to be installed:

Could you add gcc as an optional dependency as a c compiler?

Thanks for this swyter and for fighting to keep it up/get it back after misunderstanding(s); even depreciated still has a big impact on startup performance for me and the way packaged have experienced no issues or conflicts, thanks again!

Can confirm. Also I've asked swyter@ and jleclanche@ to forward their discussion to the aur-request@ ML

swyter commented on 2015-03-09 15:59 (UTC)

@lahwaacz: jleclanche was AFK during weekend and did not have time to reject it before arcanis, originally unaware of the conversation, accepted it. That's all there is to it.
