@mnlipp That's odd. I just tested in a clean chroot[1] and it builds fine with python2 and python2-setuptools, no python(3).

Can you please double check?

It looks like systemtap-git uses python3 (i.e. python-setuptools) but for stap version 3.2 which we have in this package it needs python2-setuptools. In fact I just checked the other AUR package systemtap-git and it's missing 'python-setuptools'. Is it possible you were building that one and not this one?

On my newly installed system, I had to manually install "python-setuptools". I assume that the make-dependency on "python2-setuptools" is outdated.

Backported fbb26e17a fix for timers for >= 4.15 kernels as reported by AstroProfundis.

I have adopted the package and backported the gcc8 fix. The build should succeed now. Let me know if you run into any issue.

Found it. Thank you git-bisect. This was an issue with gcc8 which was fixed in commit a8e317b60139238fef4038027eb37507e066d720 "Fixes for gcc 8".

Checking if we can backport this as a patch for 3.2...

No luck building 3.2 here either. git master currently at fbe23773e builds fine.

I have dropped the package due to missing time. Feel free to adopt it and fix the bugs.

Concurring with kevlar1818: Build is failing. Output at

The build step is failing due to "all warnings being treated as errors":

In file included from ./includes/stap-probe.h:3, from main.cxx:39: ./includes/sys/sdt.h:123:75: error: type qualifiers ignored on cast result type [-Werror=ignored-qualifiers]

systemtap has a bug running on Linux kernel > 4.15, the error is like: implicit declaration of function ‘init_timer’.

There is a fix in upstream:;a=commitdiff;h=fbb26e17a

And here's a quick patch I made to PKGBUILD to apply this fix that work on my side (with linux-zen 4.16.4):
