Howdy, I am working on a PKGBUILD for a new GNU Social client called GnuSocialShell. I made one for the git version, because this is being rapidly developed, and I don't believe there is an actual release yet anyway. The problem is, it haults with an error when trying to copy files in place, and I'm not sure why. I have gone over this file and can't find anything wrong with it. It's probably something simple I'm just overlooking though. Thanks for any help :) Storm
My comments on this situation and your PKGBUILD:
1st - The PKGBUILD has CRLF. You need to format it to Unix (use 'dos2unix' command)
2nd - Your command line to get version doesn't seem to be correct. 'Main.c' reports current version 0.8, just like 'git shortlog' history shows. But you've got '1' from what doesn't look to be a version. Please review that.
3rd - Not the main issue, but remember to set arch (don't use 'any')
4th - Makefile is copying files to directly to '/etc' and '/usr', instead of allowing fakeroot to work with a variable like $(DESTDIR) before that path. That's an upstream bug, that can be fixed with the attached patch
5th - Makefile tries to copy to directories without making sure they exist. Again, upstream bug fixed with my patch.
My suggestion is to fix yourself the first 3 issues and file a bug report for the last 2.
