[Solved] Cannot create .src.tar.gz to upload

Hello.

I have a problem that it is driving me crazy. Maybe because I didn't uploaded a package on a while I am forgetting smething :S

I mantain the AUR package "Rodent", and the creator released a new version. So I updated my PKGBUILD, and tested it. Work fine...

But when I do "makepkg --source" nothing happens!

$ makepkg --source
==> Making package: rodent 4.8.0-0 (Fri Jul 13 02:04:02 BST 2012)
==> Retrieving Sources...
  -> Found rodent-4.8.0.tar.bz2
==> Validating source files with md5sums...
    rodent-4.8.0.tar.bz2 ... Passed
==> Entering fakeroot environment...
==> Source package created: rodent (Fri Jul 13 02:04:03 BST 2012)

Ok, time to check the dir....

$ ls
PKGBUILD  rodent-4.8.0.tar.bz2  src

So there is no *.src.tar.gz!

I am missing something?

Thanks in advance for the help

Did you perhaps set a different directory in makepkg.conf?

You've most likely defined SRCPKGDEST in /etc/makepkg.conf... you should look there...

No, this is a very fresh ARCH install, I didn't even touch the makepkg.conf.

I'll do it and set a dir, hoping it will send to that dir hmm

Re: [Solved] Cannot create .src.tar.gz to upload

Ok, I tried seting the parametters in makepkg.conf.

The result is quite interesting, indeed. It does all the parafernalia, then I go to the directory I had set up...

and it is empty >_<

So it is just not writting the .src.tar.gz

Thank you all for the help, at least now I am aware of the makepkg.conf (I switched to gentoo, and I have forgotten some arch things, despite being quite logical)
