@iohzrd I am wondering why are you compiling with the -Werror=format-security CFLAG?

Raansu commented on 2021-04-22 07:21

@iohzrd I'm not 100% about this issue and I don't know how to best fix it.

Because of this I feel like I cannot support this package any further and I will orphaning this package so someone else can take over support.

Currently getting:

../dist/../repmgr/repmgr_net.c: In function ‘__repmgr_listen’:
../dist/../repmgr/repmgr_net.c:1334:2: error: format not a string literal and no format arguments [-Werror=format-security]
 1334 |  __db_err(env, ret, why);
      |  ^~~~~~~~
cc1: some warnings being treated as errors
make: *** [Makefile:1954: repmgr_net.lo] Error 1
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

while trying to compile. Please advise.

the ARCH of this package is not ANY. it is ARCH dependend compiled (compiled on x86_64, but runs not on ARM)

"If a package is architecture-independent in its compiled state (shell scripts, fonts, themes, many types of extensions, etc.) then use arch=('any'). Please note that, as this is intended for packages that can be built once and used on any architecture, it will cause the package to be labeled -any as opposed to -x86_64, etc. "

Is someone still maintaining this? It's an extremely important lib for lots of cryptocurrencies.

Probably should update this to include a patch for the __atomic_compare_exchange issue. Here's one way:

I'll take this over, look for a new update in a few hours after this comment.

Yeah somebody else could maybe take over running this, it's a dep of bitcoin-git and it won't compile without fixing the PKGBUILD.

ArchMagic commented on 2015-03-16 01:24

Note to others: this only builds if you replace "build()" with "package()" in the PKGBUILD
