% pkg-config --variable pc_path pkg-config


% pkg-config --list-all | grep xcb-aux

xcb-aux XCB Aux library - XCB convenient functions

I still fails to build 'normally' on my (up-to-date) box but does build, as mentioned before, in clean chroot. So no worries.

It happens from time to time with some AUR packages. When it does, I usually just move on to build in clean chroot and if it builds, I leave it at that.

@stef204 I'm not able to reproduce this on a clean install. However, I think it is a good idea to add xcb-util as a dependency, so I'll do that. What output do you get for "pkg-config --variable pc_path pkg-config" and "pkg-config --list-all | grep xcb-aux"?

Fails to build both using makepkg AND asp in clean chroot.

Error message using asp in clean chroot:

"checking for xcb... yes checking for xcb_aux... no configure: error: Cannot find xcb-aux"

xcb-aux should be provided by xcb-util package, installed on my box AND in clean chroot but no joy.

Any ideas?

Edit: if I add xcb-util to dependency array, it builds fine in clean chroot. Otherwise, I would probably have to install xcb-util in clean chroot using something like: "# makechrootpkg -r $CHROOT -- -i"

Although, I should say that I do have xcb-util installed locally and package still fails to build using makepkg.

Adopted. An upstream patch is now applied to use pkg-config to detect freetype and xft. This may have fixed any X issues, as I cannot reproduce any freezes.

This program repoducably freezes X on my system. Orphaning.

There is a fork on github.

Change this

source=( no_freetype_check.patch)

sha256sums=('44b07fc5d7b2dadb3267c1c80279bdc1a84f264272f15e8f5cb920d83c0fab92' '8a7acd26ae612ea02aa00c6cb12763e04b3c17e9c8782d64b76930718a19c92b')

and cd into XFE-master in the three functions.

Install the package "patch", which is in base-devel. Or better, install base-devel.
