The build issue is fixed with ncurses from [testing].

Same problem here. However, replacing

--with-term-lib='ncursesw' \

with

--with-term-lib='ncursesw tinfo' \

in the PKGBUILD allows me to build cleanly.

I might be losing features in terms of terminal capabilities though, so I am not sure it is actually the proper fix.

I got the idea from here:

Fails to build in systemd-nspawn (after changing to https://github.com/zsh-users/zsh ) with:

configure: error: in `/build/zsh-git/src/zsh':
configure: error: "No terminal handling library was found on your system.
This is probably a library called 'curses' or 'ncurses'. You may
need to install a package called 'curses-devel' or 'ncurses-devel' on your
system."
See `config.log' for more details

Please update source to mirror of zsh git: https://github.com/zsh-users/zsh

Versioning doesn't work right now. They added a tag that has dashes in it. I'm switching to:

echo "$(git rev-list --count HEAD).$(git rev-parse --short HEAD)"

Here's a patch to clean up the build time fpath settings. http://ix.io/8UY

It's probably fine to remove the sed for init.d to rc.d as we don't have either now and in at least one case it's become redundant anyways.

Thanks for keeping up with this great package.

bindir should be /usr/bin

xaocon commented on 2013-05-01 18:46

Hey gtmanfred,
The GIT URL line should be changed to:
"$_pkgname::git://git.code.sf.net/p/$_pkgname/code")
I'll go ahead and mark this out of date as well to grab your attention. It won't build without it (or it won't for me).

Probably not, I fixed that.
Thanks.

zsh.install:
/bin/grep -> /usr/bin/grep
But do you need to be that specific anyway?
