The pkgbuild now performs a signature check, and you will have to import and (locally) sign the key, once.

gpg --search-keys A1774C1B37DC1DCEDB65EE469B8450B91D1362C1
gpg --lsign-key A1774C1B37DC1DCEDB65EE469B8450B91D1362C1

Checksum seems fine to me. I just redownloaded it, and no change.

LeonardK commented on 2015-07-02 17:42

checksum out of date

Updated to 2.13

v2.13 is out.

It seems the md5sum changed, as validation failed. It expects the md5sum to be f657ca76bf27642f4a35db4abb0868ed.

Thanks for that, I saw your issue opened upstream, Once that's in I can revert it to a basic make once more, for now I'll add your patch to this package.

I would like to leave tests in place where possible since they usually exist for a reason; probably not so bad when we're compiling a tagged release version I suppose.

By the way, when I tested it, doing a single threaded build was only ~0.5 seconds slower than multi-threaded (on a quad-core xeon).

This should fix the problem: Also, because we compile the test sources, this also runs it in the check() function.
Another fix would be (as already mentioned) to define NO_TESTS, this would skip the git checkout of 'catch' and not compile the test sources.

That might be something to raise an issue on the upstream bug tracker if that is the case.

As for building in a dirty directory, I'm not sure, that's very hard to make a directory with the same leftover files as someone else after possibly multiple versions, I also suggested it since I tested it and it did work for me, and still does. Catch doesn't appear to compile as it reports no patch/configure/build/install steps, then continues on with the rest of the build process.

@IBeArjen: If you're certain that setting it to use a single threaded build will fix this issue, then I'll gladly add it to the pkgbuild.

'catch' is only required to run some tests that could also be disabled with -DNO_TESTS as we do not run them for building this package anyways (no 'check' function).

But a proper fix would be to fix the cmakelists.txt by adding a hard dependency.

Actually, recompiling it in a _dirty_ directory might work. That, or compiling using "-j1" (i.e. single threaded build). The build process pulls catch from git and starts further steps before getting catch has completed, and fails because of this.
