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.

Hi, I get an error when trying to install with "pb -S google-drive-ocamlfuse":

ocaml-biniou is a dependency of ocaml-yojson which is required by gapi-ocaml.

timofonic commented on 2015-11-22 16:16

What about ocaml-biniou dependence?

mlq commented on 2015-11-22 13:18

There is no reason to flag this package out of date since there is no version available.

Feel free to create a new wiki page!

timofonic commented on 2015-11-22 12:50


Can we make a wiki page about it? There's one about Insync, but not this one. redirects to

xganesh commented on 2015-10-17 21:19

Apparently also 'ocaml-biniou' is an unmentioned dependence?

lesebas commented on 2015-10-12 11:21


cppo is already required by ocaml-yojson which is a dependency of gapi-ocaml.

Coldbird commented on 2015-10-12 10:45

Dependencies should include cppo.

lesebas commented on 2015-10-07 19:29

Please update to v0.5.18.

Not easy to built as you have to rebuilt manualy all the ocaml package (and ocamlfuse is nearly broken on AUR).

@possum @b3nt0

I've updated ocaml-extlib and ocaml-curl is now OK. You can go ahead to build gapi-ocaml

possum commented on 2015-08-17 18:37

I cannot find ocaml-curl and ocaml-extlib packages in the aur anymore :/
Also version 0.5.17 is already out.
