Makepkg does not extract anything before trying to make [SOLVED]

I have a puzzeling problem with my makepkg. When trying to install any package from the aur (with or without yaourt) I get an error similar to this:

[chris@cow opera]$

With the good help of irc people I discovered that makepkg was not extracting archives before it tried to use them to make a package. (An example in this case would be it not extracting opera-10.00.gcc4-qt4.x86_64.bz2 and then trying to use what would have resulted from its extraction to actually make the application.) This is why it would give the "No such file or directory" error.

I havn't the slightest clue why packages aren't extracting. Any ideas?

What is the output of:

Re: Makepkg does not extract anything before trying to make [SOLVED]

I can not replicate on i686...

and file gives the exact same output and that is what makepkg uses to determine what to extract.  So I have no idea here...

Re: Makepkg does not extract anything before trying to make [SOLVED]

@allan not the same output. you have after Extracting Sources the command from extracting. he doesn't


Give what you have. To someone, it may be better than you dare to think.

Re: Makepkg does not extract anything before trying to make [SOLVED]

well...   that was my point.  I was giving a "works for me".

Edit: I think I see where the confusion was.  The "file" command I gave above gives the same output for me.

opothehippo, bsdtar is included in libarchive. Do you have that installed?

Re: Makepkg does not extract anything before trying to make [SOLVED]

Maybe add some debug statements in makepkg, especially around lines 642-658.
Basically the "case file_type" construct, to see what is going on there, to check if it is indeed skipping the file and to understand why.

Re: Makepkg does not extract anything before trying to make [SOLVED]

How would I do that? What file is it that I must make changes too?

Basically add something along these lines to /usr/bin/makepkg..  I left the new lines unindented just to make them more obvious.

        # fix flyspray #6246
        local file_type=$(file -bizL "$file")
echo "FILE TYPE: $file_type"
        local cmd=''
        case "$file_type" in
            *application/x-tar*|*application/zip*|*application/x-zip*|*application/x-cpio*)
echo "CASE TAR"
                cmd="bsdtar -x -f" ;;
            *application/x-gzip*)
echo "CASE GZIP"
                cmd="gunzip -d -f" ;;
            *application/x-bzip*)
echo "CASE BZIP"
                cmd="bunzip2 -f" ;;
            *application/x-xz*)
echo "CASE XZ"
                cmd="xz -d -f" ;;
            *)
                # Don't know what to use to extract this file,
                # skip to the next file
echo "CASE SKIP"
                continue;;
        esac

It works for me here on x86_64.

Re: Makepkg does not extract anything before trying to make [SOLVED]

I edited my makepkg as follows:

 642                 # fix flyspray #6246
 643                 local file_type=$(file -bizL "$file")
 644                 echo "FILE TYPE: $file_type"
 645                 local cmd=''
 646                 case "$file_type" in
 647                         *application/x-tar*|*application/zip*|*application/x-zip*|*application/x-cpio*)
 648                         echo "CASE TAR"
 649                                 cmd="bsdtar -x -f" ;;

 653                         *application/x-bzip*)
 654                         echo "CASE BZIP"
 655                                 cmd="bunzip2 -f" ;;
 656                         *application/x-xz*)
 657                         echo "CASE XZ"
 658                                 cmd="xz -d -f" ;;
 659                         *)      
 660                                 # Don't know what to use to extract this file,
 661                                 # skip to the next file
 662                         echo "CASE SKIP"
 663                                 continue;;
 664                 esac
 665

I ran makepkg again and received this:

Error: Makepkg was unable to build opera package.

I have a limited understanding of this, I'm guessing makepkg does not recognize the binary and so it skips it?

@iBertus: Thanks for veryifying it works on you 64 bit arch. However I've had this problem on 32 bit arch also.

Re: Makepkg does not extract anything before trying to make [SOLVED]

Got it working! I was looking at another thread where C programs weren't building and cwrapper was the culprit. I removed the cwrapper stuff from my .bash_profile and it works great now. A simple solution to a frusterating problem.
