[SOLVED] PKGBUILD /lib exists in filesystem

Apologies for the similar thread...
I know there's a lot of topics similar to this with particular files conflicting with various packages when installing, but I couldn't quite see the issue with my PKGBUILD.

PKGBUILD contents (without the vars):

package() {
  # Unpack the vendor package
  cd "${srcdir}"
  tar -zxf data.tar.gz
  cp -dpr "${srcdir}/usr" "${pkgdir}"
  install -Dm0644 "${pkgdir}/usr/share/doc/vpn-unlimited/copyright" \
    "${pkgdir}/usr/share/licenses/${pkgname}/copyright"

  # Create a custom script that forces the older libcurl
  cat > "${pkgdir}/usr/bin/vpnu" <<- EOF
#!/bin/sh

PID=$(pidof vpn-unlimited-daemon)

if [[ $EUID -ne 0 ]]; then
   echo "Must be root to run VPN daemon" 1>&2
   exit 1
else
   if [ -z $PID]; then
      vpn-unlimited-daemon &
      sleep 2
   fi

   LD_PRELOAD=libcurl.so.3 vpn-unlimited	
fi
EOF

  # Change script permissions
  chmod 0755 "${pkgdir}/usr/bin/vpnu"

  # Alter the desktop file to launch our script instead
  sed -i 's/Exec=vpn-unlimited/Exec=vpnu/g' "${pkgdir}/usr/share/applications/vpn-unlimited.desktop"

  # Add our custom systemd unit
  install -Dm0644 "${srcdir}/vpn-unlimited-daemon.service" "${pkgdir}/lib/systemd/system/vpn-unlimited-daemon.service"

  # Save this original file
  cp -p "${srcdir}/etc/init.d/vpn-unlimited-daemon" "${pkgdir}/usr/share/doc/vpn-unlimited/"
}

While building:

vpn-unlimited: /lib exists in filesystem
vpn-unlimited: /usr/sbin exists in filesystem
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.

I don't understand why the problem is the symbolic links at /lib and /usr/sbin. Doesn't cp -dpr follow the symlinks?

Re: [SOLVED] PKGBUILD /lib exists in filesystem

I had a package that I had previously installed on one machine and later reused the package on another machine and that's when I encountered /usr/sbin already exists.  I rebuilt the package, and still got the same conflicting files message.

Re: [SOLVED] PKGBUILD /lib exists in filesystem

The new version of pacman changed how it handles symbolic links, you'll need to install the files where they actually are rather than using a link. See the "Directory  Symlink Handling" section of Allan's blog post

I have to bind mount the offending directory with its' symlink equivalent just to get the package to install?  I'm still getting the /usr/sbin conflict.

Rather, the package itself must not install to those location with symlinks. E.g., it should install to /usr/lib and not to /lib.

Looks like my package doesn't need to put files in both /usr/bin and /usr/sbin.

Re: [SOLVED] PKGBUILD /lib exists in filesystem

Had to change the sbin in the actual configure file to get it to work and then remake the package.

Re: [SOLVED] PKGBUILD /lib exists in filesystem

Did as fsckd suggested and rearranged files in ${srcdir} avoiding the symlinks before moving them to ${pkgdir}. Solved.

Re: [SOLVED] PKGBUILD /lib exists in filesystem

Can someone help me changing the PKGBUILD from tm_smapi-ck?

I am getting the same error message:

Re: [SOLVED] PKGBUILD /lib exists in filesystem

Reported a bug from something like this a few days ago. 15 minutes since reported, someone closed it claiming it was not a bug.

Some LXQt packages have the same problem with /usr/lib64

You need to be putting things in /usr/lib, because of the change in how pacman 4.2 handles symlinks.

EDIT: Scrub that suggestion, there's probably a better way to do the move than that.

Re: [SOLVED] PKGBUILD /lib exists in filesystem

I've not tested this, but I believe that

INSTALL_MOD_PATH="$pkgdir"

should be

INSTALL_MOD_PATH="$pkgdir/usr"

EDIT: the lines following that change would need to be updated accordingly too.

In some packages you might get away with that, and be lucky that it works.  However, I went through via yaourt -G (package) and then going through the src dir and hand editing the entries in the configure script so that it goes to the right place.

For now this seems to work with the hint that @WorMzy gave:

Change all instances of:
- $pkgdir
+ $pkgdir/usr

Thanks!

Re: [SOLVED] PKGBUILD /lib exists in filesystem

I have now updated the AUR tp_smapi-ck package in accordance with the required changes. Frightfully sorry about the delay.

I am not sure if this thread is still valid, but I have created an AUR package for VPN Unlimited.

Re: [SOLVED] PKGBUILD /lib exists in filesystem

Do not necrobump old threads, especially solved ones, and even more especially not to just spam the same message you are posting all over the forums which is essentially cross posting.
