socks5 is provided by the dante package, which is part of the makedepends array.

The problem is gcc, since it has been changed at Tue May 7 from 13.2.1-6 to 14.1.1+r1+g43b730b9134-1. If you downgrade to 13.2 you can build the package without problems, if you update to 14.1 you will run into the error.

After consulting the developer, the CFLAG "-fpermissive" should be set. After changing the PKGBULD

 @@ -25,7 +25,8 @@ build() {
         cd "$srcdir/$pkgname-$pkgver"

I was able to build the package again without errors.

The build log cited is only the summary. The config.log file would show the actual error. Also, the package dependencies do not list a socks5 package, which makes it hard to guess what the configure script did not see.

indeed, for a little bit now the installed version complains about not finding (package's updated), yet when trying to update it fails to find the magic socks libraries and refuses, now:

tail end of the logs
checking if you want socks library... yes
checking if you want socks5 library... yes
configure: WARNING: Cannot find socks library
configure: error: cannot link with socks library
disabling the socks option and leaving only socks5, gets a liiitle further

checking if the socks library uses socks4 prefix... configure: error: Cannot link with socks5 library

editing PKGBUILD to disable socks support does allow it to build, though

Do anyone have this error: configure: error: cannot link with socks library

why '--with-nntps' is missing from PKGBUILD?

"localhost" is not a FQDN, only a hostname. It seems that your /etc/hosts is not correct. Try to pass "localhost.localdomain" as the server, or better add  localhost.localdomain   localhost

to your /etc/hosts

@martin-de: Thanks for the help. For problem (1) I have to create /etc/tin/tin.defaults and add domainname=localhost. The FQDN in ~/.tin/newsrctable did not resolve the warning. For problem (2) I installed nullmailer as you said. Thanks again for your help.

martin-de commented on 2024-02-02 10:47 (UTC)

@swimm3r: (1) Read the comments for FQDN in ~/.tin/newsrctable and (2) install a MTA like dma, exim, msmtp-mta, nullmailer, opensmtpd or postfix

swimm3r commented on 2024-02-02 10:28 (UTC)

Reading config file... mail: Cannot start /usr/sbin/sendmail: executable not found (adjust mta variable)

^^^ Other error.

swimm3r commented on 2024-02-02 10:04 (UTC)

When I try to run, the error is displayed: Can't get a (fully-qualified) domain-name!

What that means?
