@haawda, thank you for testing, but I currently think the right thing to do is to get community/python-wxpython downgraded.

It was a ownership problem -- lemon was installed but for some reason the files were 777, but the drive I was using to compile was mounted with a different ownership access.

I think there are some issues up stream that should be ironed out, but I think you can workaround this by installing lemon and retry the build.

EDIT: related and it may not be enough to install just lemon. Do you have the package shared-mime-info installed?

Having issues here building, specifically at the libevel/grammar.lemon which fails at the lemon parsing. Anyone with this issue?

Yes, this pa pagage has always been tracking master. That is common for pavkages in AUR with tje dash git suffix.

Was this supposed to be updated to v5.99 (nightly)? Seems like kicad-git should be the same version that is available in community/kicad.

@nickoe - Oh sorry my fault, I just were comparing this PKGBUILD with my own homebrew one (but way more simplistic) in which I had gathered all cmake options, but you're right after re-reading the article they are indeed already set to default:ON -- Thanks :D

the article I'm referring to

@t_thomas, I am not sure what exact commit you are reffering to, but they are on by default on master.

t_thomas commented on 2020-12-19 15:10

Hi, was there a reason the drop the following 3 build instructions from the PKGBUILD file (compared to the git suggestion on how2to install)


btw. thanks a lot for again maintaining the new nightly KiCad packages

Sorry for the confusion. The git describe output matches the version presented inside KiCAD and according to the source provided is how the internal version is set.

The sed expression is simply to replace the two '-' characters by something allowed in Arch versions. Most popular seems to be to do a tr '-' '.', but not all packages follow this (inkscape-git for example). I suppose my preference for a tilde to separate the build number from the semver is a bit of a Debian-ism. It's just a suggestion, no more.
