@basiliscus: It is completely fine to manually bump a package version, that is the right solution. You are just commenting on the wrong package here, the python-sip-pyqt4 package needs the update, so you can just flag that out date (i already did it now).

I had the same issue as toxicfeet. I know this is probably a frowned upon solution, but I just needed the software to work.

The issue appears to be in the sip module, so I had a look around the PKGBUILD for python-sip-pyqt4. It seemed to be using an older version of the package. I changed the pkgver to be pkgver=4.19.19, then ran updpkgsums. That seemed to work, the error stopped showing and flatcam booted up fine.

I imagine that this might cause other errors in the system though, I am not really certain, that is just how I made flatcam boot. I haven't come across any side effects yet.

Drawing a blank after running yay -Syu flatcam-git

I first ran pacman -Syu and updated everything followed by the above command. python-pyqt4 will not install without editing the '-f' flag out as listed in its AUR comments. I removed the '-f' flag from python-pyqt4 to get it to install.

After installing everything this is the error that prevents flatcam from running.

Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/flatcam", line 11, in <module> from PyQt4 import QtGui RuntimeError: the sip module implements API v12.0 to v12.6 but the PyQt4.QtGui module requires API v12.7

Unforunately, flatcam does not run and gives the error above.

I have fixed the FlatCAM_GTK (among other) problem(s) now, thanks for pointing it out.

Build fails with
==> Starting package()...
rm: cannot remove 'FlatCAM_GTK': No such file or directory
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package().

rm -r *.sh doc FlatCAM_GTK
rm -rf *.sh doc FlatCAM_GTK
fixes this problem.
