Hi,

I tried to build xampp, something go wrong during the tclkit build

the build file is looking so

is it the solution ?
No, I replace the md5sums with SKIP, same issue

Install the base-devel group first and read about the AUR.

for building/compiling packages from AUR, you need to have installed all the packages in the “base-devel” package group

the make command is essential - and is included in that group of packages

Thanks both for your quick answer, both answer is the solution :slight_smile:
it works now for sure, first time it happen, I understood the issue, thanks a lot.

@philm
Strange those packages ‘base-devel’ are not include by default ?
I did a fresh install this morning…

Why? Installing packages form the AUR is completely unsupported. The base-devel package is only for user that going to compile software.

I’m not a power user, sorry, but I understand the needed package to build the wished software.
I avoid the aur packages, I’m aware with the potential risk, be sure.

No problem. Just try to understand what it means to build packages form the AUR, specially the risks that are part of it.

I would think that
when a user who is using pamac or it’s GUI
and enables AUR support, in order to be able to use these packages,
would expect that this “base-devel” package group
will be installed as a dependency
so that the AUR packages can actually be built.

I don’t know (!) whether this is the case - I rarely used pamac
and I knew of this dependency
and did install it without even trying to rely on pamac doing it for me.

If going the makepkg route or using any other AUR helper, reading is still required and the thus gained knowledge
that this package group is needed.
