To compile - remove the libgbm package from the depends= list. libgbm is now in the mesa package. Then "makepkg -o".

In kmscon-git/src/kmscon/src/pty.c, add:

#define SIGUNUSED 31

In kmscon-git/src/kmscon/src/uterm_vt.c, add:

#include <sys/sysmacros.h>

Then, "makepkg -e".

This package requires libtsm-git

Daniel, would you also add installing the manual page to the PKDBUILD?

Add a dependency on the "docbook2x" package:

depends=(systemd libdrm mesa libegl libgbm libgles pango libxkbcommon xkeyboard-config libtsm docbook2x)

And then convert and install the xml file:

package() {
cd $_gitname
make DESTDIR="$pkgdir/" install
mkdir -p "$pkgdir/usr/share/licenses/$pkgname" "$pkgdir/usr/lib/systemd/system"
cp COPYING "$pkgdir/usr/share/licenses/$pkgname/"
cp docs/kmscon{,vt@}.service "$pkgdir/usr/lib/systemd/system/"
cd docs/man
docbook2man kmscon.xml
gzip kmscon.1
cp kmscon.1.gz "$pkgdir/usr/share/man/man1/"

And also similarly for the kmscon package in the Community repository?

There's nothing odd about the `epoch` variable, and it can't be removed without breaking all future updates.

Could you please remove that odd epoch=2 when possible?

Now 'libtsm' should be added to depends array.

@swiftgeek See "git help describe". The last part is the abbreviated commit (which may be ambiguous).

swiftgeek commented on 2013-06-19 13:45

But is it possible to get from that git describe number to specific commit?

dvdhrm commented on 2013-06-19 12:45

@swiftgeek: I think it's from "git describe", which is shorter than the full hash but still guaranteed to be unique. You cannot guarantee that if you just use a hash-prefix (even though collision are unlikely if you make it large enough).

btw., is the main repository, but sometimes the server is down so I push to github and might forget to update fdo..
