I can reproduce your error now after some investigation of the build system of auctex. If for some reason /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/site-start.d exists on your system, auctex's build system tries to place its files there, but ths fails because in the "make install"-step redirected to $pkgdir this subdirectory is missing.

May I ask why /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/site-start.d exists on your system? Did you create it manually or was it created by another package? If the latter is true, you can do a "pacman -Qo /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/site-start.d/..." where ... is the name of a file in that directory.

I get this error:

test no != no || \
/bin/install -c -m 644 auctex.el /home/lu/abs/auctex-cvs/pkg//usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/site-start.d/auctex.el
/bin/install: cannot create regular file `/home/lu/abs/auctex-cvs/pkg//usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/site-start.d/auctex.el': No such file or directory
make: *** [install-startup] Error 1
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package().

and pacman -Ql auctex-cvs says:
auctex-cvs /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/site-start.d/auctex.el
auctex-cvs /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/site-start.d/preview-latex.el

You're sure, you don't have those file installed? If not, I wonder what configuration difference could lead to this... cvs, perhaps? (I just installed as build dep of this package)

mstrlu, that is really strange. For me, it works without that mkdir line, and even does not install any files to that directory.

When installing it today, I needed to add

mkdir -p $pkgdir//usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/site-start.d

in package(), just before

make DESTDIR="$pkgdir/" install

to make it work.

There was a blank in $pkgrel, fixed now.

Still doesn't work here (even as rood). As I don't want to spam the comment section here I opened a thread here

Seems something is wrong with your local cvs repo. Please try to adjust permissions or remove it and run makepkg again.

This package does not build anymore since some days, it stucks with:

cvs checkout: warning: failed to open /home/.../.cvspass for reading: No such file or directory
cvs checkout: Updating auctex
U auctex/.cvsignor

Any suggestions?

Another patch is no longer needed (ghostscript.9.0.0.patch).

haawda commented on 2010-09-18 14:13

I removed the patch. The ConTeXt-fix should be included automatically when committed upstream.
