Tiger breaks Arch directory scheme utilizing /var/run which is now symlinked to /run. Need to change configure variable accordingly.

- --with-tigerwork=/var/run/tiger \
+ --with-tigerwork=/run/tiger \

error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)

on install.

'tiger' install packages into /usr/sbin but it should install into /usr/bin instead

thanks, evaryont! it compiled with your addition.

This should be fixed in the PKGBUILD...

nogweii commented on 2011-02-08 05:07

I was able to get the package to compile by adding the following 2 lines the PKGBUILD, after the call to patch:

sed -i 's/tempfile`/mktemp`/' util/genmsgidx
sed -i '/explain.idx/s/&&/||/' util/genmsgidx

After that, ran smoothly.

Your problem is most likely here:

../util/genmsgidx: line 79: tempfile: command not found

Unfortunatelly, Savannah server is not accessible right now, so I can't even try to make a package.

Package fails to build:

My guess is it wants to be build as root... which I'm not so sure I'm comfortable with.
