i dont know if yaourt ist installing the dependencies. so, is python-protobuf installed ?

amael commented on 2018-06-12 16:40

The build fails for me, the python module google.protobuf is not found. I'm installing with yaourt and I did not modify the pkgbuild.

checking for serial port lock directory... checking whether python version is >= 2.6... yes
checking for python version... 3.6
checking for python platform... linux
checking for python script directory... ${prefix}/lib/python3.6/site-packages
checking for python extension module directory... ${exec_prefix}/lib/python3.6/site-packages
checking for python module: google.protobuf... no
configure: error: failed to find required module google.protobuf

updated the pkgbuild. it now defaults to python3. there is a variable for python2 if you need it.

@kew i think the libtool warnings are harmless. didnt find a way to get rid of them

Upstream issue #1192 was closed:

Compiling now seems to work again, however I do get a lot of errors that look like this:

libtool: warning: 'ola/' has not been installed in '/usr/lib'

Probably requires a PKGBUILD fixup.

@archmylinx thanks

Meanwhile I thought I'd share :

$ pacman -U

$ pacman -U


Thanks for the pointers!

thx for the comment.
will update the PKGBUILD when the issue is resolved

This package currently does not build because of some compatibility issues with protobuf>=3.2, see this issue:

I've installed protobuf-3.1.0-1 from the arch linux archive. Package continued to build just fine after that.

can you update the PKGBUILD. OLA has released 0.10.3. OLA also builds now for python3. thanks

bison and flex are also dependencies
