problem upgrading arch linux (AUR) package to 0.9.6

Postby pauld » Tue Dec 24, 2013 9:36 pm

Well, the old packager have orphan the Arch Linux AUR package for cobra, and I have tried to update it from 0.9.4 to 0.9.6.
That is my first package I adopted, and was expecting a simple upgrade, and made it in a cow-boy way: updating the package before testing that it works.

We do it in a special way, basically we use InstallFromWorkspace.cobra, but as it is executed under fakeroot, we specify:
echo "$pkgdir"/opt/cobra > install-directory.text
where $pkgdir is a local directory where we build the package.

We do patch the InstallFromWorkspace.cobra, to avoid some tests that won't work because we don't really run under root.

Now here is the code I get while trying to make the new package:

Do we need a new install-directory.text specifically for xbuild? if so in which directory?

Re: problem upgrading arch linux (AUR) package to 0.9.6

Postby nerdzero » Wed Dec 25, 2013 1:29 am

For 0.9.6, I modified the installer to create a "Cobra" subdirectory wherever the msbuild/xbuild MSBuildExtensionsPath variable points to. The "Cobra.targets" and "Cobra.MSBuild.dll" files are then moved there.

This line during the installation process:
Code: Select all
run: xbuild /property:Configuration="";Platform="" /target:DisplayMSBuildExtensionsPath ./Cobra.MSBuild/Targets/Cobra.targets

asks xbuild (or msbuild on .NET) what the MSBuildExtensionsPath is. For Mono on Linux, this will usually return "/usr/lib/mono/xbuild".

I don't know much about packaging for Arch. Does that help?

Thanks, that did help.
Both the old maintainer and myself were able to build 0.9.6 with your explanation.
Mine is only to modify the build xml file with:
sed -i "s|\$(MSBuildExtensionsPath)|$pkgdir/usr/lib/mono/xbuild|" Cobra.MSBuild/Targets/Cobra.targets

His solution is a perl replacement in many, all? files, I am not too sure, I don't understand it much.
Still discussing it on AUR Arch Linux cobra package's page.
