I'm probably missing something important, but... I can install gprbuild-bootstrap. If I just install gnat-gps it uninstalls gprbuild-bootstrap and fails to build xmlada with the same error. Is the same problem @flintatarta reported?

The choice for gnat-gps build is quex-for-libadalang or just quex. They both fail for libgpr>=2018 and libgpr failsfor xmlada. Seems like some kind of circular dependency.

@charlie5, OK, I will go did there for a while. Thanks

I can't repeat the problem. It looks like gprbuild has not been installed properly.

Can't get past this

What's going on with this "2018 update"? This conflicts AND provides with itself (???), and as far as pacman is concerned "18" < "2017".

I too had problems in building the package, but solved them. I am writing my experience for future help.

makepkg was stopping with "No valid configuration found." It turned out that the default knowledge base of gprconfig was not correctly installed. More precisely, gprconfig (built, I guess, with gprbuild-bootstrap) was searching the knowledge base in /share/gprbuild, but no /share directory was on my system.

In order to solve the problem I created the /share directory with

sudo mkdir /share

successively I copied the directory gprbuild in


(relative to the directory with the PKGBUILD file) in /share with

sudo cp -r src/gprbuild-gpl-2017-src/share/gprbuild /share

The commands above, of course, need to be given as root (therefore, the "sudo").

This is not building properly, and it ends up with the following error:

raised ADA.IO_EXCEPTIONS.END_ERROR : a-tigeli.adb:96
make: *** [Makefile:120: install-static-pic] Error 1

I can't build the package. configure gets stuck at:
"checking whether gnat can build shared libs..."

nocko commented on 2016-06-30 12:52

Doesn't build against gnat>=5 due to changes in libgnat naming. Work around is in the upstream bug report:

Upstream URL should be ok now.

Thanks for reporting.
