Dear readers, NOTE: this package has been renamed to hifi-git. Please re-install with the new package:

I'll be merging hifi-interface-git into hifi-git. Thanks for your attention, Kitlings!

@chilledfrogs @sudoquai @naelstrof

I created a running version of high fidelity. Maybe you want to check it out here:

Best regards!

Just run: /tmp/hifi/vcpkg/3c02af84/vcpkg install tbb:x64-linux

then run yay hifi-git again.

But I recommend to don't build hifi-git because it is using the master branch. The master branch is very unstable and can't connect to the welcome network. I will try to upload a stable hifi git asap.

Same issue as @sudoquai and @naelstrof, I really hope to be able to try this soon...

I have the same error like @naelstrof. Would be nice to be finally able to use High Fidelity on Archlinux. How to fix it ?

The build has an error that I have no idea how to fix!

Is there any progress on splitting this up into interface and the server stack? I've been trying to build the server straight from source and I'm having issues with openssl-1.0. I haven't tried using this package yet, but I'd rather not because I don't want interface on my server machine. Here's an issue on GitHub: Thanks for all the efforts!~ ^^

NikkyAi commented on 2018-07-05 23:20

export QT_CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH=/usr/lib/cmake was required to make it build correctly, not sure if thats something to be fixed in the qt package or in hifi

also missing dependencies: quazip and nvidia-texture-tools-git

EDIT: even after fixing quite a few dependencies and making custom packages for the using the hifi intended libraries versions it crashes on startup of the interface

toastercup commented on 2018-01-23 00:27

Thanks, Jake! I'll get that updated shortly. @jfred: no news, unfortunately. I was unable to get it working after a few hours of trying and haven't had a chance to try again. I am, however, splitting apart hifi-git into several packages so you can just build the server packages separately from interface. For interface, I'm considering putting together a Snap package so that the Bullet lib's version can be held back. I'll update the comments as soon as there's progress. Thanks, folks!

Please switch from qxmpp-qt5 to qxmpp, it is the same pkgbuild, so i want to merge them.
