The latest build fails with the following error.

./configure: line 2790: 5: Bad file descriptor
checking whether --sysconfdir=/etc is declared... (cached) ./configure: line 2826: 5: Bad file descriptor
./configure: line 2830: syntax error near unexpected token `}'
./configure: line 2830: `} # ac_fn_c_check_decl'
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
error making: glimpse-editor-git

There are also a lot of other warnings before then, which mostly consist of these two:

warning: The macro `AC_TRY_COMPILE' is obsolete.
warning: The macro `GLIB_GNU_GETTEXT' is obsolete.

I have corrected the build and now pygkt can be removed

All users are pleased to download the new pkgbuild and rebuild the package

I had forgot about that, I'll update this weekend

Is there currently work being done in fixing the mentioned "perpetual new update" thing?

squalou commented on 2020-09-18 06:32

@FabioLolix @programegg

this comes from pkgver() function in PKGBUILD

git describe --long --tags | sed 's/^v//;s/([^-]*-g)/r\1/;s/-/./g'

returns things like 'continuous.r0.g4571a15ad7', which is usual for '-git' packages.

PKGBUILD itself includes a defaut value for pkgver=0.1.0.r1080.g6af7a42098, issue being aur helpers always think there is a more recent package,

PKGBUILD should be re-submitted with another default pgver= value I guess, to avoid perpetual update.

@FabioLolix, while the program builds correctly, the versioning needs some work still.

Running this PKGBUILD installs glimpse-editor-git with version number continuous.r0.g156205484f-1. However, when I run yay -Syu this package is marked as having an update to 0.1.0.r1080.g6af7a42098-1.

yes it builds here!

programegg commented on 2020-08-13 15:38

@zoe1337, I'm not sure what's changed recently but I was just able to successfully build/install this package. No more libtool error but there were a ton of libtool warnings.

@programegg my patch that fixes the extradir issue got upstreamed. Now the build fails on my Arch box with
libtool: error: cannot find the library '../../' or unhandled argument '../../'

and I have no idea how to debug libtool. It builds on Ubuntu.
