Ray, Allan, All,
I got mkarchroot setup in /dat_e/david/bld/root and I created a custom repo
with all necessary dependency packages for the Trinity kdebase build in
/dat_e/david/bld/root/chrepo and added the repo to ..bld/root/etc/pacman.conf
and updated the mkarchroot. (I ran a test by building rpncalc from AUR and it
I have my copy of kdebase in /dat_e/david/bld/tmp/kdebase. Running sudo
makechrootpkg -r /dat_e/david/bld installs all the dependencies and all the
previously built trinity packages just fine. But then cmake fails before it even
starts for the kdebase build with the following:
21:02 archangel:/dat_e/david/bld/tmp/kdebase> sudo makechrootpkg -r /dat_e/david/bld

Build failed, check /dat_e/david/bld/copy/build
I see that /dat_e/david/bld/copy holds a copy of the chroot and
/dat_e/david/bld/copy/build holds the PKGBUILD pkg, and src dirs. But cmake is
obviously not happy with the setup. CMakeList.txt is in my source kdebase dir,
but not the root or copy directories created by mkarchrootpkg. Is there
something I need to modify or change in PKGBUILD or the mkarchroot setup to have
it work with cmake??
Any help appreciated.
