Thanks for reporting that. This is indeed a bug with the package.

You can work around this by creating these three groups before the build:

sudo groupadd -r stapusr ; sudo groupadd -r stapsys ; sudo groupadd -r stapdev

I also realize now that this package is missing a post_remove() script to remove the groups. Looking into a fix for both...

I can not install package with the following error: (sorry I can not figure-out a better way of post readability)

yaourt -S systemtap

Please use the "Flag package out-of-date" button next time.

~~Also, 3.3 is signed with an expired gpg key. So I'm not updating the version yet.~~
Nah, just my mistake.

I have been experiencing a bug of this version including semantic errors while finding probes(in my case at least syscall.* and kernel.function("kbd_event")).

soylens commented on 2018-08-13 09:21

Version 3.2 is out of date, please consider merging to ver 3.3

gangelop commented on 2018-06-16 09:33

@mnlipp That's odd. I just tested in a clean chroot[1] and it builds fine with python2 and python2-setuptools, no python(3).

Can you please double check?

It looks like systemtap-git uses python3 (i.e. python-setuptools) but for stap version 3.2 which we have in this package it needs python2-setuptools. In fact I just checked the other AUR package systemtap-git and it's missing 'python-setuptools'. Is it possible you were building that one and not this one?


mnlipp commented on 2018-06-13 19:23

On my newly installed system, I had to manually install "python-setuptools". I assume that the make-dependency on "python2-setuptools" is outdated.

Backported fbb26e17a fix for timers for >= 4.15 kernels as reported by AstroProfundis.

gangelop commented on 2018-06-03 14:38

I have adopted the package and backported the gcc8 fix. The build should succeed now. Let me know if you run into any issue.

gangelop commented on 2018-06-03 13:48

Found it. Thank you git-bisect. This was an issue with gcc8 which was fixed in commit a8e317b60139238fef4038027eb37507e066d720 "Fixes for gcc 8".

Checking if we can backport this as a patch for 3.2...

gangelop commented on 2018-06-03 13:16

No luck building 3.2 here either. git master currently at fbe23773e builds fine.
