This new PKGBUILD is a work in progress. If you find bugs, please let me know ASAP.

@maderios I had the same problem with exactly the same test(s) failing (which is bogus, since emacs works perfectly after de-activating checks).

It's probably not useful to keep checks active for now.

I got compiling error. I had to disable "TEST". It works.

[quote] That's a harsh judgement. [/quote]

Considering I've used used ImageMagick since 1989, you can take my word as gospel. :-) BTW, I was using netpbm before that, I still like it better.

Yes. It is deprecated. Search the mailing list too.

              # ImageMagick 7 support. Deprecated (read the logs). 
              # ImageMagick, like flash, is a bug ridden pest that 
      # won't die;  yet it is useful if you know what you 
      #are doing.

That's a harsh judgement. I did not find any logs giving information about the deprecation and also didnot find any alternative to fixing slowly loading images. Can someone clarify?

Current Emacs master branch use Imagemagick 7 to support --with-imagemagick option, the PKGBUILD still using imagemagick6 and it was removed from Arch repo.

FYI: I observe crashes due to the addition of the --with-cairo flag in the PKGBUILD. This is in emacs --daemon / emacsclient mode. I will see if I can report the bug upstream.

Edit: Bug is fixed in emacs by now.

Thanks for the kind words @vorbote , I'm aware of how WIP open source software development works.

I've posted this info in here : - to give you some heads up in case you're planning updating the AUR src code - in case you are part of the upstream emacs devel team or have links to the upstream emacs devel team

I"ll have a look at how to file a bug with the upstream emacs devel team.

@stefann_inc Upstream bugs are reported upstream. Besides, when you use WIP software, if it breaks you get to keep the pieces.

FYI: Latest emacs-git from HEAD f2d22273599f96a731e23b2f6d7571af8bb7bb3f fails to build inside an nspawn clean and updated arch chroot, with this missing libgnu.a error:

  GEN      time.h
  GEN      unistd.h
  AR       libgnu.a
ar: fcntl.o: No such file or directory
make[1]: *** [Makefile:103: libgnu.a] Error 1
make: *** [Makefile:410: lib] Error 2
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

Full build log can be found here: - -

As far as pkgfile is able to find only extra/clisp contains this libgnu.a file but even when adding clisp to the depends list emacs-git fails to build.

Haven't been

Can you please add emacs-seq package to provides array? emacs-seq functionality is bundled inside the new 27th version, so it is not needed anymore.
