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

@StefanH What offical way?

Why do you want a tilde and dot?

Hi Nick! Could you update the pkgver function to:

git describe | sed -r 's/([^-]+)-([^-]+)-([^-]+)/\1~\2.\3/'

as per the official way to get the latest version? The sed command I added to translate the dashes to something fitting the Arch version string format. Source:

@firewalker, this is a strange error. This is not an issue for me, and I also tried to update my system.

First off it looks like there is some issue with it finding wxpython 3.0.2 instead of 4.0.7. Is your default python python2?

Hi Salamandar,

In such case, should not libjpeg-turbo be added as a dependency in libfreeimage?

Salamandar commented on 2020-05-26 07:56

Hi, could you add the dependency libjpeg-turbo ? Without it, I get /usr/bin/ld : /usr/lib/ : undefined reference to « jpeg_read_icc_profile@LIBJPEG_8.0 »

as KiCad moved from launchpad to GitLab, the source should be: git+

Does anybody has a clue why it is not building and how to investigate this?

@balajiTn, it does not look like you have the real error there. Maybe post the complete output in a pastebin?

balajiTn commented on 2019-10-31 11:06

My build is failing and I am finding it difficult to spot the error. Could you please help me?

@dale6998 @nickoe it seems that at the very last step usually /tmp runs full. a solution would be to increase the size of the tmpfs to more than 8 GB. Another option would be to use a different directory for building.
