Building Swift 3 under ArchLinux


(Farhan Ahmed) #1

Hi,

I am hoping someone would be able to help with the following problem:

I am trying to build Swift 3 under ArchLinux. I have followed the build instructions and everything has been cloned and kick off the build by typing: ./swift/utils/build-script -R

After a long while the build errors out at (emphasis mine):

copying static files... done
copying extra files... done
dumping search index in English (code: en) ... done
dumping object inventory... done
build succeeded.
[574/574] Generating swift.1
FAILED: docs/tools/swift.1
cd /home/insha/build/Ninja-ReleaseAssert/swift-linux-x86_64/docs/tools && /usr/bin/core_perl/pod2man --section 1 --center Swift\ Documentation --release --name swift --stderr /home/insha/swift/docs/tools/swift.pod > /home/insha/build/Ninja-ReleaseAssert/swift-linux-x86_64/docs/tools/swift.1
Can't open swift: No such file or directory at /usr/bin/core_perl/pod2man line 70.
ninja: build stopped: subcommand failed.
./swift/utils/build-script: fatal error: command terminated with a non-zero exit status 1, aborting

So what am I doing wrong? What can I do to either fix this issue or skip it if it is not essential (i.e. docs, etc.)? Any help and pointers would be greatly appreciated.

Best,
Farhan

Hello.
I've never tried building from the Swift repository, and I think you
don't need to do it either.
What I do is just installing from the AUR, if you install the 'swift'
package it will compile the last release for you, if you install
'swift-bin' it will repackage the ubuntu binary for arch.
If you want to try Swift 3 (I have done this), there are the 'swift-
development' and 'swift-development-bin' which will repackage the
ubuntu binary or compile from source respectively.

Thank you Andrés. I will take a look at those packages from the AUR.

I'll also plug my repo: https://github.com/RLovelett/swift-aur

I use this to build from source on Arch.
