I'm trying to install this package, I'm getting a bunch of annoying strip messages:

  -> Stripping unneeded symbols from binaries and libraries...

I think you need to disable the strip option in this package, you can just modify the PKGBUILD like this:

diff --git a/PKGBUILD b/PKGBUILD

For reference, it isn't clear anywhere that after installing it, you need to run /opt/esp-idf/ and source /opt/esp-idf/ to be able to use or I think this package should at least show a message about these steps.

Hi, to my understanding, v4.3 is already released. Could you please check?

@Sidju Thanks for letting me know. I just added the missing dependencies on python-virtualenv, libusb, cmake, and git.

Seems like python-virtualenv is an undeclared dependency (for

@thevoidnn: /opt/esp-idf/.git has to be present or source /opt/esp-idf/ prints the following error:

fatal: not a git repository (or any of the parent directories): .git WARNING: Git describe was unsuccessul: Command '['git', 'describe']' returned non-zero exit status 128.

Also to add to that, it needs its own python environment as it won't work with the latest release of one of the python libraries (pyparsing>=2.0.3,<2.4.0)

I am attempting to update this PKGBUILD working with v4.2 but the zip release is giving me an error

bsdtar: Unsupported ZIP compression method during decompression of link entry (8: deflation) bsdtar: Error exit delayed from previous errors.

I could try going instead seeing if I could install this via the released source code instead of the release zip, calling the install script within the pkgdir, unsure if it will like it though. Anyone else got ideas?

why keep .git folder in package? (rm -rf .git before cp -R . ? ) it's 368M of wasted disk space :D

plus, adding IDF_PATH=/opt/esp-idf into ~/.pam_environment (or syswide /etc/environment) instead of /etc/profile.d/|csh allows setting this env var without any bash sessions (e.g. starting CLion IDE in Xfce session)

When building in a clean chroot, the git command is missing. So I would suggest adding makedepends=('git')
