Hmm... works for me. Could you please give me a few more details:
- 64 bit or 32 bit? Any other system specs worth noting?
- This happens immediately on run or do you need to perform some action?
- Please try running sup while in ~. I've found some bugs occasionally
if you're in some strange directory.
- While building my package, does it say that it is rolling lockfile
for you? It seems your lockfile's a bit screwy rather than Sup. If
lockfile already exists on the system, my package might not roll a new
- That said, try removing the lockfile gem and installing a fresh one
using the "gem" utility.
The error up there doesn't really make sense. Each not defined on
buffer strings? Seems unlikely. You could also try running the
commands in my build step manually and install yourself the sup
dependencies that I list + the dependencies in the Arch repos and see
if sup does something then. This would be more serious debugging.
Anyway, for now, I can't reproduce the error on my system, and I'm
fully up to date with the Arch repos. I don't really know what to say.
Did you remember to switch your indexes to Xapian and so on?
