check() function was added, if unit tests fail, you may ignore them by appending --nocheck to makepkg.

@jxir Thanks a lot for your thorough explanation! Works fine:)

@Andrei_Korshikov The problem is unrelated to Meson. It is caused by the update from pacman-6.0.2 to pacman-6.1.0 changing the makepkg.conf default from



LDFLAGS="-Wl,-O1 -Wl,--sort-common -Wl,--as-needed -Wl,-z,relro -Wl,-z,now \

This PKGBUILD modifies the LDFLAGS prior to running Meson via

export LDFLAGS=${LDFLAGS/,-z,now}

that is the string ,-z,now is deleted from LDFLAGS (Explanation of the Syntax). While this was fine before, it will now result in a lone -Wl not followed by a comma.

It should now be clear how to fix the build:

The same fix was applied to extra/xorg-server.

From my opinion, the problem part is -Wl -Wl,-z,pack-relative-relocs, more precisely -Wl with space after it. In my understanding -Wl must always be followed by a comma and parameter(s). I've never used Meson, so I can't understand why this -Wl is leaved alone and how to fix it.

Sorry, it just makes no sense without knowing that fact. I returned it back.

man you keep removing my _srcurl variable. That guy's there for my daily automatic builds ;)

I refactored pkgver() and removed unused variables.

You removed provides = (... xorg-server ...). Why? This breaks being able to replace xorg stable package with this one.

gardotd426 commented on 2022-02-03 04:07 (UTC)

Considering this package uses newer code than the stable release xorg-server, I'd say in addition to my other suggestion for fixing the naming scheme, and honestly probably even more important than that, is fixing the X-ABI-VIDEODRV_VERSION. xorg-server is on 25.2. This package reports 24. That makes it impossible to install things like xf86-video-fbdev because it requires a version greater than 24 and less than 26 (as of me typing this).
