I cannot seem to be able to compile this:

fatal: git upload-pack: not our ref 39e17e1c5c3db56fe9d0308af28be90f172e455e
fatal: remote error: upload-pack: not our ref 39e17e1c5c3db56fe9d0308af28be90f172e455e
Fetched in submodule path 'instruments', but it did not contain 39e17e1c5c3db56fe9d0308af28be90f172e455e. Direct fetching of that commit failed.

I believe that lash and fltk are optional dependencies, and should probably be marked up as such in the PKGBUILD. (Neither of them are dependencies for the regular, non-git zyn package.)

I was able to get it to compile without lash just by taking it out of the deps list in PKGBUILD. I seemed to get some trouble compiling without fltk, so that one may be more complicated. It seems that it should be possible, but I have to admit that at this point I'm out of my depth.

I've removed lash from [community]:

habys: I get a similar output using makepkg when attempting to build 2.5.4.r119.g9a097e6 I am unsure why; however, I suspect this is due to upstream changes.

WoefulDerelict: I am humbled by your efforts to recreate the bug. I checked my makepkg.conf and BUILDDIR is the only variable which has been changed by me. Even worse and probably embarassing for me: I cannot reproduce the error any more. I can only guess that it was some glitch in my system which went away either by rebooting or by updating the system - zynaddsubfx-git was just successfully compiled and installed on my machine. Thank you for taking care of this piece of software in arch, it enables me to make music (which probably only I like) with a fine soft synthesizer.

Moxon: That is, of course, your prerogative. Unfortunately I have been completely unable to reproduce the reported behaviour on a multitude of systems. The package builds fine in a clean test environment ( as well as on test boxes with nothing more than a pacstrap of base and base-devel: even when building in /tmp on machines with as little as 1GB of RAM. Not even yaourt misbehaves and it also builds in /tmp. If I parse the output you shared correctly your build isn't even managing to properly retrieve the sources. The fetch data is all off and it appears to be looking for the git repository is a very, very strange place '/var/cache/pacman/pkg/zynaddsubfx-git27501/zynaddsubfx-git/zynaddsubfx-git' This is definitely not the default location for package sources. If makepkg has a BUILDDIR of /tmp/makepkg the primary location it should be working with is '/tmp/makepkg/zynaddsubfx-git' along with the source, which by default is downloaded to the same directory the PKGBUILD resides in. If you have modified other variables in makepkg.conf like SRCDEST they could be responsible for altering the default behaviour and the root of your current issue. If there is not enough space to download the sources it could result in the errors you're experiencing. If you compare the output you provided with the following output from a healthy build you should notice that the git repo has more data than is being reported/retrieved on your system which would explain why it does not appear to be a valid repository when git attempts to work with it: it's incomplete. ==> Retrieving sources... -> Cloning zynaddsubfx-git git repo...

Hm. I beg to differ. With 4.9GB on /tmp even zynaddsubfx should be able to compile. It is the only package which fails, all others from AUR work. Also the error occurs even before the compilation starts and does not hint towards a out of space error.

WoefulDerelict commented on 2016-07-18 18:41 (UTC)

Moxon: Unfortunately this problem exists not with any package or even in opting to use /tmp/makepkg as your BUILDDIR but between the keyboard and chair. If you had bothered to consult the documentation you would know that the default behaviour on Arch is that /tmp exists on tmpfs which is limited to half of the system memory ( The build is failing because your system does not have enough space in tmpfs to house the build. This limitation is one of the key reasons /tmp/makepkg is not used by default and why yaourt attracts the most negative feedback of any AUR helper as it attempts to build in tmpfs by default. You can solve this problem by either building outside of tmpfs or by adjusting the maximum size of your tmpfs by following the procedure on the tmpfs page of the Arch Wiki.

Moxon commented on 2016-07-18 14:12 (UTC)

This might be a problem with not just this package, but: If you set BUILDDIR in /etc/makepkg.conf to e.g. /tmp/makepkg, the build fails early with this error message: $ makepkg -sir ==> Making package: zynaddsubfx-git 2.5.4.r40.gd920f8b-1 (Sun Jul 17 14:17:38 CEST 2016) ==> Checking runtime dependencies... ==> Checking buildtime dependencies... ==> Retrieving sources... -> Updating zynaddsubfx-git git repo...
