Here is a suggested PKGBUILD to get this built with the po4a issue:

As per [1], building packages from prebuilt binaries is not allowed without the package being a pkgname-bin package. What is the reason that you cannot build the source?

EDIT: I can confirm that just changing the pkgver to 2.1.1 from the previous commit does compile just fine. You should change back to building from source. In order to build, po4a must be downgraded or version 0.27 must be made available or disable documentation generation.

Getting CMake error on linking

collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status

The very first error i am getting is

/usr/bin/ld: /usr/local/lib/libgtest.a( relocation R_X86_64_32 against `.rodata.str1.1' can not be used when making a PIE object; recompile with -fPIE

Definitely something up, the repository no longer has tags / code. Checking, you can always click on the developer information hyperlink. From there, click on the Git link. This now points to Updated package.

Trying to install this via aurman, and I keep getting:

==> Extracting sources...

fatal: '1.5.1' is not a commit and a branch 'makepkg' cannot be created from it
==> ERROR: Failure while creating working copy of apt git repo

I poked around in the PKGBUILD, and checked on the source:


That URL points to an empty repo. There's nothing at all in, which breaks this build AFAICT. Some quick googling around about changes to the project turned up nothing (and no alternative repos), so I think this package is broken / out of date.

Thank you!

ProfessorKaos64 commented on 2017-04-06 12:01

@dylan, I will do this today. Thank you. Generally, if I forget (I have so many projects, busy work life etc...), just flag the package out of date if that is all is wrong. If there isn't I probably should add a -git version to always track latest.
