Re: pacman wrapper to allow source builds (srcpac)

With srcpac 0.3 (it really was time to release), srcpac -h outputs the usual usage information and the added srcpac options.  No man page needed wink

Re: pacman wrapper to allow source builds (srcpac)

However, srcpac -Sh gives:

usage:  pacman {-S --sync} [options] [package]
options:
  -c, --clean         remove old packages from cache directory (use -cc for all)
  -d, --nodeps        skip dependency checks
  -f, --force         force install, overwrite conflicting files
  -g, --groups        view all members of a package group
  -i, --info          view package information
  -l, --list          list all packages belonging to the specified repository
  -p, --print-uris    print out download URIs for each package to be installed
  -s, --search        search remote repositories for matching strings
  -u, --sysupgrade    upgrade all packages that are out of date
  -w, --downloadonly  download packages but do not install/upgrade anything
  -y, --refresh       download fresh package databases from the server
      --ignore <pkg>  ignore a package upgrade (can be used more than once)
      --config <path> set an alternate configuration file
      --noconfirm     do not ask for any confirmation
  -v, --verbose       be verbose
  -r, --root <path>   set an alternate installation root
  -b, --dbpath <path> set an alternate database location

which is a little confusing regarding the -b option.

Re: pacman wrapper to allow source builds (srcpac)

Looks like Judd added an option that directly conflicts with srcpac.  I thought -b was a good one for build.  I guess I'll have to change that one day.

Re: pacman wrapper to allow source builds (srcpac)

I added a manpage, added --ignore support, and fixed a conf handling bug.

Re: pacman wrapper to allow source builds (srcpac)

ok, dredging up an old thread, but didn't want to start a new srcpac thread.

Once abs is able to hit the AUR, srcpac is going to be invaluable!

One thing though, as I've just begun messing with srcpac - if I use srcpac exclusively, and let's say I setup some configure options for vim in srcpac.conf - when vim7 is released, will "srcpac -Syu" catch it, understand it was compiled from source, and recompile?

If this isn't the case, it'd be a nice feature...

Anyway, crossing my fingers until I can cvsup the AUR repo...

Re: pacman wrapper to allow source builds (srcpac)

To respond a while after these things were posted:

re: USE flags
srcpac uses sed commands to replace chunks of the PKGBUILD.  This is really a poor man's USE flags.

re: does srcpac remember which packages were from source
yes, it will.  Check out the output of srcpac -Qi <some package you built>.

Re: pacman wrapper to allow source builds (srcpac)

How would I uncomment a line in a PKGBUILD using srcpac?  I want to uncomment the following lines from the subversion PKGBUILD and place the entry into srcpac.conf:

# make DESTDIR=$startdir/pkg javahl
# make DESTDIR=$startdir/pkg install-javahl

The tricky part is that the delimiter for srcpac.conf is the # that I wish to uncomment. 

Thanks!

Re: pacman wrapper to allow source builds (srcpac)

You don't have to use # as the substitute delimiter.  You can use / or % or anything you'd like.

Re: pacman wrapper to allow source builds (srcpac)

Hmmm... it didn't seem to work.  I added the following into my srcpac.conf

conf_subversion=('%#   make DESTDIR=$startdir/pkg javahl%make DESTDIR=$startdir/pkg javahl%' '%#   make DESTDIR=$startdir/pkg install-javahl%make DESTDIR=$startdir/pkg install-javahl%')

It built without error, but the javahl library is not installed.  When I uncomment the lines by hand and build the package, everything works fine.  I'd just like to automate it with srcpac.

Re: pacman wrapper to allow source builds (srcpac)

You have to be aware of the $.  $ means end-of-line in regexp speak.

Also, check out the -o option for srcpac.  It lets you inspect the PKGBUILD after changes have been applied without building the package.

Re: pacman wrapper to allow source builds (srcpac)

Ah, yes.  Thank you.  I also noticed that the -o option actually changes the PKGBUILD, so if it takes a little bit of experimenting to get it correct one may have to update the PKGBUILD from cvs to get it back to its original condition.  Here is a patch to srcpac that sends the output to stout without ever modifying the PKGBUILD.

Thanks for srcpac and the help!

Re: pacman wrapper to allow source builds (srcpac)

Hmmm, submit that to the bug tracker.  I may use that.

What I normally do is srcpac -Syo, the -y always updates from cvs first.  That way you know it's right no matter what.

Re: pacman wrapper to allow source builds (srcpac)

Task #3175

I inlined the patch, and then saw I could attach it after the task was created, so it is in both places. 

Thanks again --

Re: pacman wrapper to allow source builds (srcpac)

Hi.
I just want to know how can I use CFLAGS in srcpac? Doesn't it takes this flags from makepkg.conf???
I'm trying to update the whole system using srcpac -Syb, but while installing the firest built package it tells me that some files are existing in my filesystem. The --force option seems not to work in srcpac, so I can't update my system automatically.
Sorry for your support. Arch is great distro, I like it very much smile

Nope, srcpac is still valid, and it still works fine.  It's not discontinued, just idle.  pacman -S srcpac

Re: pacman wrapper to allow source builds (srcpac)

Hello, I just found this whilst searching for source building options.

Has anyone used srcpac and mkarchroot together? Is there a way to make mkarchroot use srcpac in place of pacman and can I set it up so it compiles everything for i586?

I'd like to build a small server to run on some old kit. This looks promising...
