makepkg fails to extract files before attempting build

Hi,

My issue is very similar to to this: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php … 23#p622523

I am running arch x64 and have a ramdisk where build packages (named /build)
In makepkg.conf I have my BUILDDIR pointing to /build.  It downloads file right and all, but fails to extract the file to a ./src directory before trying to compile.  This happens everytime I run makepkg (I illustrate with an AUR package)

makepkg aborts with
/build/yaourt-tmp/aur-powder/./PKGBUILD: line 16: cd: /build/yaourt-tmp/aur-powder/src/powder117_src/: No such file or directory

If I manually extract the contents and run makepkg, it works fine.

Any help on this issue is appreciated.

Thanks

Re: makepkg fails to extract files before attempting build

If you're using yaourt, don't blame makepkg.

Have you tried it with makepkg on its own? That way, your title would be correct. smile

Re: makepkg fails to extract files before attempting build

Hi,

the problem persists with just makepkg. I probably should have clarified that.  I was using yaourt to grab PKGBUILDs from AUR to test.

Here is what I have discovered so far.
Remember that in makepkg.conf, BUILDDIR=/build

[@:/build/powder]# ls
PKGBUILD
[@:/build/powder]# ls
PKGBUILD
[@:/build/powder]# makepkg

==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
    Aborting...
[@:/build/powder]# ls
PKGBUILD  powder117_src.tar.gz
[@:/build/powder]# cd ..
[@:/build]# ls
makepkg  pkg  powder  src  yaourt-tmp
[@:/build]#

In the last line, the src and pkg directories are the directories that should be inside ./powder
Actually, now I understand that BUILDDIR is responsible for this.  However, the PKGBUILD is not aware that I'm building in a different place, so changing directories in the PKGBUILD fail.

I am running arch on an SSD and would prefer to have makepkg build its packages in RAM rather than on disk.  Is there a way to make the PKGBUILD aware that src and pkg are not where it thinks they are?

Re: makepkg fails to extract files before attempting build

The PKGBUILD is broken, because it still uses $startdir/src instead of $srcdir, which does not work anymore when BUILDDIR is set.

Re: makepkg fails to extract files before attempting build

Sorry about that!

It's fixed now. Didn't notice this one still used the old syntax (the package wasn't originally mine, I adopted it).
