I got a warning from the pkgbuild saying that the package contains reference to $srcdir, is that ok?

possibly related github issue ( TL;DR - you might need to install msys2-runtime-devel )

PS - Guacamole might not be able to run on Windows at all. If that is unfortunately true give WSL1/WSL2 a try.

thanks for your reply. Actually I am trying to build Apache Guacamole for Windows. But when I run "./configure" I get the following error:

Unable to find libuuid or the OSSP UUID library. Either libuuid (from util-linux) or the OSSP UUID library is required for guacamole-server to be built.

I have already installed util-linux, but it doesn't seem to resolve the issue. I need to install OSSP UUID. Other dependencies like "Cairo", "libpng", "libjpeg" and "libtool" were easy to install using "pacman -S package-name", but there is no package for OSSP UUID in pacman.

The dependencies needed to build Apache Guacamole Server are listed here:

Un1Gfn commented on 2021-04-18 16:24 (UTC)


Package util-linux provides command uuidgen. Is that what you want?

$ uuidgen --version
uuidgen from util-linux 2.36.2
$ uuidgen -r
$ uuidgen --help

 uuidgen [options]

Create a new UUID value.

 -r, --random        generate random-based uuid
 -t, --time          generate time-based uuid
 -n, --namespace ns  generate hash-based uuid in this namespace
 -N, --name name     generate hash-based uuid from this name
 -m, --md5           generate md5 hash
 -s, --sha1          generate sha1 hash
 -x, --hex           interpret name as hex string

 -h, --help       display this help
 -V, --version    display version

For more details see uuidgen(1).

Hi everyone, I am a noobie in MSYS2. I can't install "uuid" package using "pacman -S uuid", therefore I am trying to build it using the followings: 1. git clone 2. cd uuid 3. makepkg -si

but at step 3. I get the following error:

unset PERL_MM_OPT in build() allows the package to build for me. I found that tip here:

Note that I don't understand what the side effects (if any) of doing this are. All I know is that the build completes now ;-)

Eijebong commented on 2020-03-07 10:24 (UTC)

This doesn't build anymore, getting Only one of PREFIX or INSTALL_BASE can be given. Not both.

LA-MJ commented on 2019-07-03 06:20 (UTC)

Sorry for ignorance but how come this still builds with perl 5.28?

It looks like this depends on mpfr, which is not listed as a dependency.

I asked if they had a mirror though:

wget commented on 2018-02-08 10:40 (UTC)

If you are building for x86 of x86_64, just remove the patch for aarch64. The latter is just for ARM based devices. It works without on x86 based systems.

Thank you! You can also add 'aarch64' now

@ilpianista: added the patch.

Could you consider to apply this patch needed by aarch64?

christensen143 commented on 2016-08-21 04:11 (UTC)

Hopefully this will help someone in the future. I found the answer to the "Only one of PREFIX" error that unixfox ran into. Turns out there is an extra line in the .bashrc for perl. Comment out the line and you are good to go. Details are here

Black_Codec commented on 2016-06-25 12:07 (UTC)

@unixfox: try to compile in a clean environment (search the aur wiki for compiling in a chroot environment), i try to compile it today and works fine.

unixfox commented on 2016-06-06 16:40 (UTC)

When I try to install UUID, I get this error: >Only one of PREFIX or INSTALL_BASE can be given. Not both. >Makefile:130 : the recipe for the target « perl/blib/lib/OSSP/ » has failed >make: *** [perl/blib/lib/OSSP/] Error 25 I don't know how to resolve it, does anyone has a fix ?

adminempire commented on 2015-11-09 08:33 (UTC)

uuid has been dead for a long time, and will only require more patching over time like any other dead source packages.

Black_Codec commented on 2015-11-09 08:07 (UTC)

@adinempire: I think this should be write to developer forum and not here. I'm not the developer.

adminempire commented on 2015-11-08 19:06 (UTC)

This currently has an insecure RPATH. Have not had luck patching it to solve so far but should be made known. This was built and tested in a clean chroot and verified with namcap uuid E: Insecure RPATH '/build/uuid/src/uuid-1.6.2/perl/../.libs' in file ('usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/auto/OSSP/uuid/')

Black_Codec commented on 2015-10-28 18:06 (UTC)

@koven: I try to build in a clean environment and it works. Please verify that no other packages conflicts with it. Also send me a mail with the output of pacman -Qm @adminempire: I'm sorry but i need this package for my other packages.

koven commented on 2015-10-26 22:09 (UTC)

I'm having problems with this package, I paste the output in pastebin, I really don't know what's going on. Thanks!

adminempire commented on 2015-08-15 18:53 (UTC)

guess I was not fast enough getting my packages to AUR4

Black_Codec commented on 2015-08-11 10:14 (UTC)

before flag this out of date you must try to compile in a chroot environment. It work correctly and the last version is 1.6.2

JohnnyDeacon commented on 2015-04-20 01:34 (UTC)

Lol, I can build pacmanager.... just two minutes ago I couldn't. . .

adminempire commented on 2015-04-20 01:32 (UTC)

When I build pacmanager that needs uuid I get and 404 error. . .

adminempire commented on 2015-04-20 01:03 (UTC)

This is a dead project it can't be out of date. There has not been an update since 2008

codekoala commented on 2015-01-14 19:10 (UTC)

Found it. I had an environment variable set somehow that caused the badness. PERL_MM_OPT=INSTALL_BASE=/home/me/perl5 Updating the build() function to use "PERL_MM_OPT= make" instead of just "make" did the trick for me, similar to Ba7a7chy's suggestion. Apparently something appended a bunch of perl-related environment variables to my .zshrc. Wish I knew which package or packages were responsible for that... Would you consider updating the PKGBUILD to temporarily unset PERL_MM_OPT for other poor saps who had this happen without their knowledge?

adminempire commented on 2015-01-14 18:59 (UTC)

It honestly sounds like your guys boxes are busted in some manner. Cause it should reproduce in a clean chroot base-devel only chroot.. That is what I build all my pkgs in and test the builds with. Per Arch Docs.

codekoala commented on 2015-01-14 18:57 (UTC)

Interesting. I just built it without issue inside a fresh docker container. I'm trying to track down the differences between my main system and the container that could make something like this happen. Curious that it's happening for a handful of us. Sorry for the noise.

adminempire commented on 2015-01-14 07:08 (UTC)

Again this is not out of date. @Kubax So building this as is in a clean chroot I do not see this issue when I stated I could not reproduce. I see nothing trying to set a path to INSTALL_BASE=/home/$user/Perl5 .. @codekoala your patch fails hard. What am I missing is the problem you two are having. Because I can not produce a pkg where this happens? This builds the same and fine for me in chroots on ALARM and Arch Linux i686, x86_64 boxes

codekoala commented on 2015-01-14 00:29 (UTC)

Thanks @Kubax! Your suggestion helped me get this package building again. I've posted an updated patch with your PREFIX => INSTALL_BASE change at

adminempire commented on 2014-11-27 17:53 (UTC)

will look at it after the Holiday traveling currently.

Kubax commented on 2014-11-27 10:44 (UTC)

Fixed it. in Makefile line 130 PREFIX musst be changed with INSTALL_BASE. uuid.patch: ---------------SNIP-------------------- *** uuid-1.6.2/Makefile.old 2014-11-27 11:32:27.811528250 +0100 --- uuid-1.6.2/Makefile 2014-11-27 11:32:41.084733213 +0100 *************** *** 127,133 **** @$(LIBTOOL) --mode=link $(CC) $(LDFLAGS) -o $(PRG_NAME) $(PRG_OBJS) $(LIB_NAME) $(LIBS) $(PERL_NAME): $(PERL_OBJS) $(LIB_NAME) ! @cd $(S)/perl && $(PERL) Makefile.PL PREFIX=$(prefix) COMPAT=$(WITH_PERL_COMPAT) && $(MAKE) $(MFLAGS) all @touch $(PERL_NAME) $(PHP_NAME): $(PHP_OBJS) $(LIB_NAME) --- 127,133 ---- @$(LIBTOOL) --mode=link $(CC) $(LDFLAGS) -o $(PRG_NAME) $(PRG_OBJS) $(LIB_NAME) $(LIBS) $(PERL_NAME): $(PERL_OBJS) $(LIB_NAME) ! @cd $(S)/perl && $(PERL) Makefile.PL INSTALL_BASE=$(prefix) COMPAT=$(WITH_PERL_COMPAT) && $(MAKE) $(MFLAGS) all @touch $(PERL_NAME) $(PHP_NAME): $(PHP_OBJS) $(LIB_NAME) ---------------SNIP-------------------- cause of this problem is that with "perl Makefile.PL PREFIX=...." tries to set both. INSTALL_BASE=/home/$user/Perl5 AND PREFIX=/usr. Default value for PREFIX is "PREFIX = $(INSTALL_BASE)" so when PREFIX is set manually, both are different.

same thing for me.

OK PKGBUILD updated with new mirror. No rev bump since that was the only change and no reason to make others rebuild this if its already installed. Thanks for the heads up on the mirror change, this no longer gets updated so I forget to check once in awhile it still builds.

CaptainHook8 commented on 2013-04-27 10:36 (UTC)

FTP is down for me too. Thanks @brizou, i used the mirror you suggested.

vwyodajl commented on 2013-04-23 18:02 (UTC)

Then you need to take it up with Manjaro dev's or boards. I can not debug for a system that is not Arch Linux. This is working perfectly fine in Arch, so look at your distro for why its not, I am sure they have forums that will be of help. Sorry.

commented on 2013-04-23 17:59 (UTC)

And if i dot with supress the line after ./configure he do this it looks like installed but when i compile pacmanager and start it, he say no locate ;).

@vwyodajl Oups i've just seen i forgot to mention it, but i'm on Manjaro, not Arch... Sorry, don't know if it's changing something for you. Sorry i'm new on this system.

@Mawelou Will look into it today. But both packages built fine for me just now. Also did you try building uuid on its own?

@vwyodajl did you have any idea what's wrong. During install of pacmanager, i arrived to the install of uuid (last package) and i have this error Only one of PREFIX or INSTALL_BASE can be given.

@vwyodajl Thanks to you for fix it! ;)

vwyodajl commented on 2013-02-14 23:55 (UTC)

Thanks for catching that, the old location seems no longer accessible. I have uploaded a new version which should solve the issue and get it back to building. I DID NOT up the pkgrel, since those who have it built already do not need to rebuild as no other changes were made. Thanks and comment if you have further issues.

@mrbit crap thanks I commented that out to test something else and forgot to uncomment. Thanks for the catch will push the change through :)

mrbit commented on 2012-12-10 19:30 (UTC)

solved with decomment #patch in PKGBUILD !!

vwyodajl commented on 2012-12-10 18:58 (UTC)

@mrbit sorry to say not sure at this point why that is coming up for you. It did not occur for me on any of the boxes I did the change from -9 to -10. Of course I have util-linux installed on the boxes as well.

mrbit commented on 2012-12-10 18:52 (UTC)

vwyodajl commented on 2012-12-10 18:49 (UTC)

@mrbit I do not know why there would be a conflict with util-linux. Is there more of an error message? util-linux does not even seem to require anything relating to uuid (could be wrong) but not sure how uuid conflicts with util-linux.

mrbit commented on 2012-12-10 18:45 (UTC)

pacman -Rdd uuid && packer -S uuid idem, no install for conflict with util-linux 2.22.1-3 ????

vwyodajl commented on 2012-12-10 18:34 (UTC)

Hmm I will dig into this more then and see if I can work up a better solution. As a temp workaround if you need to use this package, just remove the package, then remove each of those files then reinstall uuid and it should all go fine again. I just hit this on a test box as well. Sorry for the temporary hassle

I had the same error as mrbit. I used "pacman -Rdd uuid" as vwyodajl suggested and tried reinstalling it. Still didn't work. Here's more of the error output: error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files) uuid: /usr/lib/libuuid.a exists in filesystem uuid: /usr/lib/ exists in filesystem uuid: /usr/lib/pkgconfig/uuid.pc exists in filesystem uuid: /usr/share/man/man3/uuid.3.gz exists in filesystem Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.

pacman -Rdd uuid && packer -S uuid. For some reason i had to do the same with mine when I added back in the perl parts to the build. Just quick uninstall then reinstall and all should be kosher for you again. Was weird I had three boxes that did not complain and 1 that did just like that. Let me know if that does not work for you and I will dig deeper.

uuid: /usr/lib/libuuid.a already exists in the filesystem conflict with util-linux ??
