Thanks jonathon, just pushed a new pkgrel.

xproto isn't in the repos any more but xorgproto should work fine:

I get the following build error when I try to build this package with yay:

install: cannot create regular file '/home/docker/.cache/yay/chez-scheme-git/pkg/chez-scheme-git/usr/lib/csv9.5.1/ta6le/kernel.o': No such file or directory.

jonathon commented on 2019-03-21 23:21

Upstream have tagged 9.5.2 and opened 9.5.3 for development. It also looks like the make install step puts kernel.o and scheme.h in place now, so here's a diff:

Newer builds work for me, too, so the issue was upstream or on my side. Anyway, thanks for testing.

ecraven commented on 2019-01-18 10:06

I just built it, seems to build fine.

haawda commented on 2019-01-17 18:13

Upstreams last commit 68e20f7 seems to be a bad one. Can someone confirm?

Up to yesterday I had no problem building this.

jonathon commented on 2017-10-15 20:08

Ah, this is building nicely for me now. :)

The initial full clone is expected, don't worry about --depth=1. I suspect anyone using a -git package should be accepting of the 900MB on-disk overhead compared to downloading ~25MB each build (or they'd just use the non-git package). Also, .

haawda commented on 2017-10-15 14:18

In a clean chroot it worked for me without -fPIC. Strange, a simple makepkg in a empty builddir needs -fPIC.

But namcap in the clean chroot is not satisfied.

jonathon, thanks for the PKGBUILD, updated based on it. I've removed the xlocale.h thing, as should have fixed this.

The PKGBUILD still clones the entire repo once, should I modify it to only clone --depth=1?

haawda, I just built it, but didn't need -fPIC, did you do a clean rebuild with up-to-date arch?
