@petronny Sorry, I added -j1 in build() but forgot the package(). Please update to 6.27.1-1 and it has been fixed.

Oops, accidently deleted the previous comment by mistake...

The previous error is solved now. However, I get the following error during package():

hd_install: Installing /build/heasoft/src/heasoft-6.27/suzaku/BUILD_DIR/lhea-fixperl in /build/heasoft/pkg/heasoft/opt/heasoft/suzaku/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-libc2.31/BUILD_DIR/lhea-fixperl

I can't find out what error it is. Everything in the build log seems fine to me.

Could you run extra-x86_64-build to build the package in a clean chroot to re-produce this error and solve it?

@monson Done. I added you co-maintainer as well.

monson commented on 2020-04-16 03:16

Sure, if this really becomes an unneeded package to you. And there are something may need improved:

  1. You may want to use CHOST in ./configure --build=${CHOST} and adjust HEADAS, because me and some others are not using x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu.
  2. Hardcoding gcc seems unnecessary, people may want to compile this with other compilers, it's quite common using mkl and icc in large-scale computing. You may want to set CC in your makepkg.conf if you need it.
  3. python-numpy provides python binding functionality, without it heasp binding won't work even built with. But optdepends is just a hint so it doesn't bother me that much.

Thanks for your contribution!

@monson I added python-numpy and libidn. Let me know if you see any problems. Since I haven't been using this for a while, I can't fully test it. Also, let me know if you would like to be a co-maintainer.

Edit: Also, another comment. We can't add python-numpy to both makedepends and optdepends. optdepends is reserved for the case where the package is not required during compilation but it will provide additional functionality when installed.

@petronny You may want to check your settings in /etc/makepkg.conf. For example, I get similar issues with MAKEFLAGS="-j7".

monson commented on 2020-04-13 09:27

@petronny I didn't hit this, would you mind checking if it has been fixed in the newer version I provided in previous comment?

Could you fix this?

  1. libidn is needed by heacore/lynx for IDNA support, it seems optional, but I don't know what really happens if missing.
  2. python-numpy will be needed in makedepends, otherwise heacore/heasp won't build the python wrapper. python will be no needed if we add python-numpy in makedepends, because it will be implicit depends.

P.S., I'm pushing this to be added into arch4edu repo [1] .


ydallilar commented on 2020-04-06 09:53

@monson What is libidn for? I guess it should add python to makedepends but do we need python-numpy to build it?

monson commented on 2020-04-06 08:40

Hi @ydallilar, 6.27 is out, and I add some depends and handy tool, would you mind checkout [1] and take a look? Thanks!
