I tried to build this package today. I found new issues with bison/flex changes.

I contact the maintainer of the source code to find out how to fix upstream.

There are other issues but I can't reproduce the ones by franzf and Aeronaelius.

This package is being maintained but PKGBUILD file is fixing so many issues. I'd rather fix upstream. It's crazy.

I am facing the same error as franzf:

./test_common_random /tmp/rand.dat 0
ERROR: main: cannot replay random sequence

I gladly accept any help.

It does not seem to build:

./test_common_random /tmp/rand.dat 0
ERROR: main: cannot replay random sequence
make[2]: *** [Makefile:121: check_common_random] Error 1

Appreciate any help with this.

I'm sorry guys. I did not even realize I was still the owner of this package. I haven't been using Arch for a year or so now. I'll release it for someone else.

These extra compression options provide functionality that may be useful to other users. Ideally, I would like to provide them as optional dependencies but so far I couldn't find a way (they need to be present at link time).

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that the current AUR packages depending upon scotch succesfully link against -lbz2 without a big fuss as to the amount of patches needed.

Is it possible to remove the bzip2 dependency, including the seds to include -DCOMMON_FILE_COMPRESS_GZ ? It requires a lot of patches to other packages where scotch is a dependency (basically to link with -lbz2).

Sorry. I accidentally pressed "Flag package out-of-date" instead of "Notify of new comments".

eleftg commented on 2015-03-10 08:23

Thanks. Next time, please don't flag as out-of-date. The fact that curl suddenly became picky about SSL certificates has nothing to do with the "out-of-date"-ness of the package. The package used to work just fine up to a certain moment.

valandil commented on 2015-03-09 19:45

I had to remove the "s" from source=("https://..."), as curl complained: "curl: (60) SSL certificate problem: unable to get local issuer certificate". Cheers.
