Makepkg errors everwhere after pacman 4.x update

I don't know what it is, but ever since updating pacman to the 4.x series, I've been getting errors on almost every makepkg build. Running makepkg manually, or through yaourt, doesn't seem to make a difference.

==> Tidying install...
  -> Purging unwanted files...
  -> Compressing man and info pages...
==> ERROR: An unknown error has occurred. Exiting...
  -> Stripping unneeded symbols from binaries and libraries...
==> Creating package...
  -> Generating .PKGINFO file...
  -> Compressing package...
==> Finished making:

The packages install, and seem to run properly. What does this mean?

The error only appears after the compressing man pages line. Could my installed localepurge be the culprit? It worked fine pre-4.x pacman.

Please post your /etc/makepkg.conf file.

Re: Makepkg errors everwhere after pacman 4.x update

Looks like it is failing while compressing man pages.   You can "echo" debug messages there to see if you can limit the issues to a single  line.

I don't follow.

How do I do this? I've never debugged anything short of programs with debug options in their gui interfaces.

Re: Makepkg errors everwhere after pacman 4.x update

I had this problem recently too (same error on same spot in the build), but for me only when using packer. Manually using makepkg didn't give me any errors, and neither did other aur helpers like pacaur.

Re: Makepkg errors everwhere after pacman 4.x update

yes, same here, pacman is ok, but the errors happen when using "packer" now.

ie:
...
  -> Compressing man and info pages...
==> ERROR: An unknown error has occurred. Exiting...
==> ERROR: An unknown error has occurred. Exiting...
==> ERROR: An unknown error has occurred. Exiting...
==> ERROR: An unknown error has occurred. Exiting...
==> ERROR: An unknown error has occurred. Exiting...
  -> Stripping unneeded symbols from binaries and libraries...
...

thx.

Re: Makepkg errors everwhere after pacman 4.x update

I have the same situation but the easy fix was to edit the /etc/makepkg.conf and find this line:

OPTIONS=(strip docs libtool emptydirs zipman purge !upx)

Change it to this:

OPTIONS=(strip docs libtool emptydirs !zipman purge !upx)

Basically you are disabling the compress manual with gzip option.

For me, this did the trick and I no longer receive the ==> ERROR: An unknown error has occurred. Exiting...

can any of you pass us some PKGBUILD files that are failing for you so we can start getting to the bottom of this?

You could just run a "packer" yourself, and you'll find lots of those errors.

So not a makepkg problem but a packer one?

packer is a third party thing to arch, if you have an issue that only happens while using packer you should take it to packer's github, forum topic or AUR comments.

we're interested to find out if the same happens while building this package with makepkg itself rather than through packer, as the first post in this topic mentioned.

you should try to build that package with makepkg to rule out a fault in makepkg.

I already posted it up to (AUR) packer maintainer... a few days ago.
http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=33378

  but thx anyway,
I'll just wait until "packer" is fixed. 
In the meantime, when I DO run into these OBVIOUS errors, as mentioned numerous times in this thread again,
also with "makepkg", then I'll post them all here for you to see.

Uh. I think you reported the bug in the wrong place. Thanks for actually posting debug output -- I know where this is breaking now.

Re: Makepkg errors everwhere after pacman 4.x update

Yaourt 1.0.1-1:

Through Yaourt.

Through makepkg directly.

There are more packages like this. Even if it is an user configuration problem on my end, I don't know how to debug this.

Re: Makepkg errors everwhere after pacman 4.x update

I have the same problem. I just merged in my makepkg.conf.pacnew and now about 1/3 of the packages installed through yaourt is giving the "==> ERROR: An unknown error has occurred. Exiting..." error. I don't have the list of packages, though.
