[SOLVED] makepkg error `this operation must be run in a work tree`

`makepkg` errors out for me with the error. Putting `set -o xtrace` inside PKGBUILD shows that it's caused by makepkg calling `git checkout`.

Here're steps to reproduce along with the output I get. The PKGBUILD is a modified version of this one. I removed functions like prepare(), biuld(), to have a minimal testcase.

$ cat PKGBUILD
pkgname=libonion-git
pkgver=0.5.r253.g169fabc
pkgrel=1
pkgdesc='lightweight C library that facilitate to create simple HTTP servers'
arch=(i686 x86_64)
url='https://github.com/davidmoreno/onion/'
license=(LGPL)
makedepends=(git)
source=(git://github.com/davidmoreno/onion)
sha1sums=('SKIP')
$ makepkg

Works ok for me.
Does  your user have writing permissions for the folder you run makepkg from ?


Multi-init booting with apg Openrc and systemd coexisting
Automounting : not needed, i prefer pmount
Aur helpers : makepkg + my own local repo === rarely need them

Hmm… This is interesting: if I do it inside `/tmp/foo` directory, then it works fine. Thank you for the reply! I'll try to figure out what's the difference.

Re: [SOLVED] makepkg error `this operation must be run in a work tree`

Thanks everyone! I figured, the problem was on my side. Basically, what fixed it was removing everything excluding PKGBUILD. The problem was that initially I modified this PKGBUILD and made a mistake which made makepkg to download an html page instead of cloning the repo. I removed it back then. But apparently it also somehow screwed up `src` dir that makepkg creates. I am not sure about details because I removed the dir before looking at the content. But basically, that's it.

Making as solved.
