I was able to fix the boost_signals issue via the following:

  • Grabbing the latest 0.4.9 release candidate build
  • Editing the package build file to point to the new file
  • Modifying the path to the new unzipped path of the source code

Grab the tarball

> wget

Get the hash (for the package config)

> md5sum v0.4.9-rc2.tar.gz 
3f3bdffda5cb09e2f422bff082697df7  v0.4.9-rc2.tar.gz

Modify the package config by updating the URL, hash, and point the src-tarball path fragment to be freeorion-0.4.9-rc2 instead.

I'm sure that once the release is finalized, then the Boost issue will be fixed. :)

Boost's component 'signals' was deprecated in version boost 1.54, and such component is not available in current boost version (1.69.0) of the Arch Linux package. However, freeorion is still implemented to use 'signals'. The newer version of signals, the 'signals2', is not compatible with freeorion yet.

Some deprecation note:

See work in progress in freeorion:

@wookietreiber pacman -Sy is dangerous, so I did pacman -Syu instead. It had nothing to do; I'm up to date. However, now when I try to build the package, I get:


-- Could NOT find cppcheck (missing: CPPCHECK_EXECUTABLE) 
-- Could NOT find pycodestyle (missing: PYCODESTYLE_EXECUTABLE) 
-- Could NOT find Doxygen (missing: DOXYGEN_EXECUTABLE)

@account: This has nothing to do with the freeorion PKGBUILD. I guess, you just need to refresh your package database: pacman -Sy.

I can't install, getting the error:

failed retrieving file 'boost-1.69.0-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz' from : The requested URL returned error: 404 Not Found

@altjsus: Do you know which patch (or commit or pull request) might have fixed the issue?

I'm willing to add the specific patches needed to get it working. I'm not willing, though, to find out by myself what individual commits or pull request are needed for that.

I had a problem with this package. After few minutes of playing it kicks me out of the game and I can't load any saving. Installing from (github) source fixed this.

@cassfalg done, thanks for letting me know about the patch

There's an issue with boost 1.66 which needs a fix backported, this is the commit that did it / way to the diff: git diff c9b5b13fb81b1ed142dee0e843101c6b8832ca95^ c9b5b13fb81b1ed142dee0e843101c6b8832ca95 It's just 2 lines changed, maybe you can add a patch to the package?
