Another error now exists with the camlidl package on a fresh build system.

In this case, the package is no longer creating a required file called "META". This prevents camlidl from showing up as installed, and prevents the package from building.

If you run "ocamlfind list | grep -i 'camlidl'", you should see the camlidl packages listed.

If not, manually create the META file: /usr/lib/ocaml/camlidl/META

description = "Stub generator"
version = "1.06"
directory = "^"
archive(byte) = "com.cma"
archive(native) = "com.cmxa"

While upgrading to the newer build, the same build error persists as reported in the comments.

When doing a fresh build, I manually created symlinks as root so that the build process finds them, as similarly suggested in the comments.

# ln -s /usr/lib/ocaml/com.cmxa /usr/lib/ocaml/camlidl/
# ln -s /usr/lib/ocaml/com.a /usr/lib/ocaml/camlidl/

After doing this, the directory '/usr/lib/ocaml/camlidl/' should have the following structure in a fresh environment:

$ ls -l /usr/lib/ocaml/camlidl/
total 4
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 20 Nov 17 02:23 com.a -> /usr/lib/ocaml/com.a
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 23 Nov 17 02:23 com.cmxa -> /usr/lib/ocaml/com.cmxa
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 102 Nov 17 01:11 META

As suggested in the comments, this seems to be an issue with the camlidl package.

This should allow the package to build for now, until an automated PKGBUILD solution is found.

I agree with @gudwin this really a p.. in the a.. :-/ Anyway thanks for your work but a solution would be really welcome....

Every time there is an update in this package, it brings me a strong headache in order to rebuild it through AUR in pamac. This happens because usually there is a new version of ocaml and all the .cmi files for the many sub-packages it depends on became obsolete, but are not automatically reconstructed, giving messages like this:

File "src/", line 1: Error: /usr/lib/ocaml/Fuse/Fuse.cmi is not a compiled interface for this version of OCaml. It seems to be for an older version of OCaml.

Then I need to enter into a tedious process of going dependency by dependency and asking it to be rebuild in order to avoid such errors. In some cases, there are dependencies on dependencies that repeats the same problem. Last time it took me more than 4 hours doing it package by package by hand, until the new version is able to be compiled. Isn't there a way of avoiding this obnoxious procedure ?

tambeta updated ocaml-sqlite3 to 4.4.1-1, for now this package can be build again.

woodyl commented on 2018-12-22 22:03

I'm having the same problem as @DroidFreak32 and @sfranchi. I can't build this package because it depends on ocaml-sqlite3. I see that ocaml-sqlite3 is now out of date and the maintainer comments that he doesn't have time to fix it and it's now orphaned. Does anybody have a suggestion for a a work-around?

sfranchi commented on 2018-12-20 14:03

I'm having the same problem as @DroidFreak32, package does not build because (I think) of older versions of ocaml packages.

Error: Library "zarith" not found.

-> required by library "cryptokit" in /usr/lib/ocaml/cryptokit

Hint: try: dune external-lib-deps --missing @install

Just in case someone is encountering the same problem I had with building the ocamlnet dependency (see my previous comment): it turned out that building most of its dependencies individually (ocaml base, ocam-pcre, etc.) before trying to build ocamlnet solved the problem for me.

sfranchi commented on 2018-03-28 15:38

One more issue: the dependency ocamlnet does not build either. According to the AUR comment of 11/27/2017 it requires a downgrade of the the nettle package to 3.3.1

eyalbd commented on 2018-02-16 18:28

Updating the package after ocaml update requires recompiling all dependencies. Is there any way of stipulating that in the package instead of going manually reinstalling all the dependencies?
