is a dependency on "jdk7-openjdk (jdk7-openjdk-infinality) (make)" needed here? Important part of question is "7" as it's jdk8.

Thanks a lot!

Are there binary builds available somewhere (that aren't outdated) or would anyone be willingly to provide his builds for this?

gim commented on 2016-02-17 07:50

tad, could you elaborate on that? The patch requires `fontconfig.h` header file which I assume should be part of the patched fontconfig by infinality.

tad commented on 2016-02-17 05:43

This doesn't actually require fontconfig-infinality to build.

gim, thanks for your replies, and for looking into this.

Like you say, apacman builds in /tmp. When it runs out of space I remount /tmp to temporarily increase the size using `mount -o remount,size=12G,noatime /tmp` (see also but of course that only works when you have like 16G of ram.

Anyway, I'll posted an issue ( in the apacman queue to make the maintainer aware of this problem.

By the way, it's preferred to build this package base by manually launching `makepkg`. Usually every AUR helper builds packages inside `/tmp`, which might not have enough free space to build something like this (unless you change this behaviour in config file or something).

I usually do it like this:
git clone
cd ./java8-openjdk
makepkg -fcCi

`-i` option will automatically install all built packages afterwards.

marcvangend, I see. It looks like apacman invokes pacman for each package separately and that's why you're experiencing this.

gim, sorry, I should have provided more details. I'm getting these errors when updating with an AUR helper, apacman ( in my case. Usually I just run `apacman -Syu` to update all official and AUR packages. That's when the problems occur, but also when I specifically install the 3 openjdk-infinality packages, or any single one of them.
