In 0.3-5 I changed the url for xzoom-0.3.tgz, the one @sunsite was no longer working.

This package doesn't build for me and unlike below, fetching it via wget doesn't work either.

@kuroneko: I had the same problem while installing this just now, haven't looked into what the cause it might be.

I'm having trouble building this package with makepkg. For some reason, makepkg fetching the sources times out. I can get the sources manually with wget though, after which makepkg verifies them and builds correctly. Anyone else seeing this problem?

Thanks xduugu, I followed your suggestions and think it's ok now.

> gzip: ../xzoom_0.3-23.diff.gz: No such file or directory

Compressed sources are automatically decompressed, so the gzip -d line can be removed. The patch line needs to be changed to something like
patch -Np1 < "$srcdir/xzoom_0.3-23.diff"
because you cannot assume that srcdir is located in the same folder where the PKGBUILD is stored. See makepkg BUILDDIR variable for example.

Without the patch xzoom doesn't work for me, it says "xzoom: can work only with 8 bits/pixel", so it's needed.
Also, 'sed -i "s@-O2@$CFLAGS@" ./Makefile' gives error about the missing Makefile, since xmkmf should be run before the sed stuff.
This modified PKGBUILD works for me:

pkgdesc="xzoom is a screen magnifier"
arch=('i686' 'x86_64')
depends=('libxt' 'libxext')
md5sums=('c6ecc5fade34cf46cbe8c00b93d7ac78' 'd3a397e24aba7025f94e264fea0906d0')
build() {
gzip -d ../xzoom_0.3-23.diff.gz
cd "$pkgname-$pkgver"
patch -p1 < ../../xzoom_0.3-23.diff
sed -i "s@-O2@$CFLAGS@" ./Makefile

package() {
make -C "$pkgname-$pkgver" DESTDIR="$pkgdir" install

The .diff patch is no longer present on the ftp, so
these lines need to be removed from the makepkg, or a new source has to be found:
patch -p1 < ../../xzoom_0.3-23.diff
sed -i "s@-O2@$CFLAGS@" ./Makefile

xzoom 0.3-2 PKGBUILD -> added CFLAGS, man page, x86_64 support.

jesseFrey commented on 2011-12-21 14:35

this works on my i5 machine can you add x86_64 to the arch array
