I'm not surprised. What a rabbit warren!

Thanks for that. I was actually thinking Docker might be a good way to get it up and running again. I have no experience with Docker but will start exploring when time permits.

I got frustrated trying to keep the dependencies straight and gave up on it. If I tried to run this again, I'd probably just use the official docker container instead:

With the update to Ruby 2.4.0-1, my Tracks installation has broken. Having spent a few hours trying to inveigle it into working, but without luck (not a Ruby dev). Any ideas what to do to fix?

On my Raspberry PI-3 (arm7) I had to make the following changes to make it work:
o replace rubyracer with nodejs (rubyracer gives compileproblems on arm)
o change line "bundle exec rake assets:precompile" TO
"bundle exec rake assets:precompile RAILS_ENV=production"

I had to do the following to maken it work:
$sudo pacman –S python2
$ bundle update
$ gem install libv8 -v -- --with-system-v8
$ bundle config build.libv8 --with-system-v8

makepkg -s gives error "ERROR: url should not be an array".
Can somebody fix this? Just remove the parentheses seems to be enough.

On Arch Linux ARM, I get:

"ruby: relocation error: /tmp/pacaurtmp-jack/tracks/src/TracksApp-tracks-4070f4e/vendor/bundle/ruby/2.2.0/gems/mysql2-0.3.16/lib/mysql2/ symbol mysql_get_client_info, version libmysqlclient_16 not defined in file with link time reference"

what can I do?

It looks like they changed the zip file since the initial release of 2.3.0. I updated the PKGBUILD.

Just tried to makepkg and got:

Validating source files with sha256sums...
default_db.patch ... Passed
tracks.service ... FAILED ... FAILED

Also, may want to consider getting:${pkgver}.zip

instead of:${pkgver}

in the PKGBUILD.

makepkg -s gave ERROR: target not found ruby-bundler
Must this be changed to 'ruby2.1-bundler'?

Slash commented on 2013-12-03 23:45

Thanks, I updated the PKGBUILD

Might want to add libxml2, libxslt, libmariadbclient to the dependencies as they're required for compile.

Thankyou for maintaining this as it saves me and others a lot of trouble.

I bundled the exact versions of the gems required for Tracks as part of this package, defaulted to Mongrel as the web server and SQLite as the database so you should be able to build this package, start the service, and have a working version of Tracks.

I don't have the time to update this package right now, and in any event have migrated to using EMACS' org-mode. So if someone else would like to take this over that'd probably be for the best.

Taking this package over, as I actually use it and prefer installing from PKGBUILDs.

That said, there are some dependency issues - a lot of the gems that Tracks needs are out-of-date in AUR, and I frankly don't have the time/energy to maintain all of the necessary builds. For now you should get a message at the end of installation detailing the additional gems you'll need to build. If anyone else wants to maintain the supporting PKGBUILDs, let me know and I'll add your work as deps. Otherwise I'll port all the dependencies over to packages in the official repositories once Tracks is ported to Ruby 1.9+.
