Hi Chrisoforo, the Downloadlink has changed. Could You please make the following changes to PKGBUILD. Thanks a lot in advance, Andreas

out of date and broken. The need to add "userApps.archive" to the source URL.

moreover, after tweaking PKGBUILD linking fails: /usr/bin/ld: ../../lib/local/jkweb.a(portimpl.o):/tmp/yaourt-tmp-piotr/aur-ucsc-kent-genome-tools/src/userApps/kent/src/lib/../inc/htmshell.h:163: multiple definition of `htmlRecover'; ../../lib/local/jkweb.a(cheapcgi.o):/tmp/yaourt-tmp-piotr/aur-ucsc-kent-genome-tools/src/userApps/kent/src/lib/../inc/htmshell.h:163: first defined here

Hi all, we're stuck on v353 until upstream stops selective static linking. I've reached out to the community and if anyone is willing to make a patch for Arch that would be very appreciated.

@greyltc that's a great idea. I'll do it today, flag as out-of-date, and post a comment describing why we are struggling to rev up.

greyltc commented on 2018-06-19 13:49 (UTC)

@clintval, maybe you could roll this back to 366 until we ( you ;-) ) manage to get newer versions compiling?

clintval commented on 2018-06-08 18:44 (UTC)

I've reached out to the forum for help:

This is going to require some work for successful compiling on Arch Linux. On all currently posted versions (up to v364) I get this error which is likely due to selective static linking:

/usr/lib/libm-2.26.a(s_rint.o): In function `__rint':
(.text+0x9): undefined reference to `_dl_x86_cpu_features'

Should be fixed up and updated now. Apologies for the delay.

To solve the license problem, the license has to be between ().

updated to 326. sorry for the delay!

This package installs a large number of binaries. Some of the names of those collide with other binaries from random packages that you might not expect. This is a workaround.

hi, a question: why do you put them into /usr/bin/kentUtils instead of somewhere in the PATH (e.g. /usr/bin)?
