@khampf, I am not using this. And it looks like the upstream is not active any more. So just disown the package and let it die :)

@blueowl are you following this package as well? I am disowning this package shortly (as I no longer use it myself)

Managed to fix the apache-ant problem too, not using absolute paths but checking enviroment instead. New PKGBUILD uploaded.

khampf commented on 2012-04-17 13:08

Build-dependencies fixed (apache-ant and java-environment) and also call of ant using absolute path makes relogin unneeded. The right way to do this would be to check if ant isn't found and trying to load /etc/profile.d/ if that's the case but that'll have to wait for later, it should work for now.

In addition to the ant error (I had to install apache-ant, and relog),I had the following error:

/tmp/yaourt-tmp-****/aur-freeguide/src/freeguide-0.11/build.xml:67: Unable to find a javac compiler; is not on the classpath.
Perhaps JAVA_HOME does not point to the JDK.
It is currently set to "/opt/java/jre"

so I installed:

sudo pacman -S jdk

Probably obvious, but I still hope this helps someone.

After installing apache-ant you'd have to either relogin or exec ". /etc/profile.d/" in current shell to add necessary variables.

cemsbr commented on 2010-05-02 23:02

I didn't see the makedepends. PKGBUILD is ok.
