[SOLVED] php73 package failing to build for the last two weeks ...

... and no one seems to care. What exactly is the procedure to have it fixed?

Thanks in advance.

Re: [SOLVED] php73 package failing to build for the last two weeks ...

Check out the PKGBUID and fix it locally or at least report it to the maintainer smile

But it also looks like there is a comment about some build issue: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/php73#comment-974710

Is this the same error you are getting?

That's exactly the error, I have commented myself just above the comment you are mentioning.

How do I report to the maintainer? There's no such link/button anywhere in the page.

Fixing it locally doesn't cut it on the long run, because I will end up having various packages fixed locally that I would have to maintain by myself. In the end that's the purpose of the AUR repo, a centralized location for the fixes (among other things).

I would try to fix it if there was the possibility of a pull request, but that's also no where to be found in the AUR pages.

You can provide the fix to the maintainer in a comment or a link to a pastbin or a code host.

You lost me at diff --git.

diff: unrecognized option '--git'

@mdcclxv, the diff that loqs posted is what you can apply to the PKGBUILD in question either by hand or by saving the snipped as patch, changing to the directory with the PKGBUILD and doing a "patch -Np1 < path/to/patchfile".

Re: [SOLVED] php73 package failing to build for the last two weeks ...

Well, I'm totally lost. I cloned the repo and there's no source code, just a bunch of patch files.

Running makepkg does download the code, no idea where from, but every time I re-run makepkg my changes are lost. So how do I test the build?

Is there a readme on how to work with AUR repos?

The PKGFBUILD will download the actual sources when running makepkg and loqs patch is for that PKGBUILD to loosen gcc to allow it to build not-exactly-standard-conform code.

Oh, so you mean what loqs posted is the actual fix?! I took it as an example.

Ok, so the next step would be to contact the maintainer. That would be matth I guess. How do I send him the patch? Just copy paste it in an email?

Re: [SOLVED] php73 package failing to build for the last two weeks ...

Waaait, what loqs posted is incomplete, there's an open if right there. I'm lost again.

EDIT: nevermind, I got it, it's a git diff, it's just the lines removed/added that count.

I never worked with patches, I got zero knowledge about them. I always pulled code, branched it, did whatever needed to be done then merged it back. Or used gitflow.

This is not solved yet, I haven't had the time to apply loqs' patch locally and build the package. I will mark the thread accordingly, I always do.

Re: [SOLVED] php73 package failing to build for the last two weeks ...

mdcclxv, may I ask, which application do you need that depends on php 7.3?

The time might be better spent porting the application to a newer php version.

That is definitely not an option, it's a large legacy application running at 50+ customers.

Re: [SOLVED] php73 package failing to build for the last two weeks ...

I applied the patch, now the build is failing with the following error

I'm not using pear, any way I can skip it during the build?

Re: [SOLVED] php73 package failing to build for the last two weeks ...

Found the list of packages in the PKGBUILD file, commented pear and pecl, job done. Someone on the php73 coding team has done a really sloppy job.

And in regards to the AUR package, what's the purpose of one adopting a package if he doesn't actually care about it? The comments with the build failing are there for more than three weeks now. No reaction whatsoever sad The latest comment from el_aur (the maintainer) was almost an year ago. Looks to me like the package is actually orphaned.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So, to summarize the steps, for future visitors:
1. Clone the AUR repo
2. Apply loqs' patch (post #4) using gromit's command (post #6)
3. Comment pear and pecl in PCGBUILD
4. run: makepkg --install
