To install this package from source I recommend to use:

aurman -S --noedit --solution_way --pgp_fetch mingw-w64-gcc

For a binary install I recommend to use Martchus ownstuff repo:

I guess I can scrap the plan of untieing the architectures on the next rebuild. It would work in theory to automatically create distinct packages by using some regex magic in my build scripts. However, my repo would then be unusable for anybody who needs additional mingw-64 packages. So I'll just keep them together.

But I still need to mess with the sources to increment the pkgrel of the packages. Previously I sometimes "added 0.1" to the version so it is still lower than the next version the maintainer would possibly update the package to. It will look very ugly if then every package has such a weird pkgrel but it is the best solution I can think of. Other ideas are welcome but I think we can forget that every maintainer will update all of the packages accordingly.

The makepkg failed with configure: error: GNAT is required to build ada. I'm sure my gcc-ada is installed. Did I miss something?

Oh, I see. I had the old version of the file cached.

Edit: I see, the old file is just HTML junk because they redirected HTTPS to HTTP, ugh! I suggested using source=('unique_file_name::file_uri') here previously but you probably know about that already and I guess this isn't really the situation for that.

@CyberShadow this is curious, I still get d18ca11:

$ curl -L|sha256sum

I noticed that in dab12c1e4a18 you changed the source from https to http, but also updated the file sha256sum. Did the file contents really actually change for some reason related to whether it's fetched with/without SSL?

Spring 2020 sounds good. I likely (need) to drop some legacy packages from my repo then (like angleproject and qt4 and everything which doesn't build anymore) so it will be spring cleanup then :-)

I'm also wondering who is using i686 anymore anyways? I haven't used any i686 Windows system anymore for ages. But in some cases producing a 32-bit DLL can still be useful (e.g. for the "multilib" use-case). So somehow I'd really like to untie the architectures. This "sometimes usefulness" does not justify to build each and every package for i686 anymore in my opinion.

xantares commented on 2019-08-21 06:59

@Martchus I propose to switch it for gcc 10 (spring 2020)

Martchus commented on 2019-08-20 09:45

Also, why is fortran enabled?

Besides that it is actually needed like @xantares already pointed out I think the mingw-w64 packages should be configured as closely as possible to their Linux counterpart.

Why do you have --disable-dw2-exceptions?

The previous maintainer (when the package even was still in the official community repo) used this. Maybe it was the best option at this point. Since then I have actually put some thought into it:

It is a huge rebuilding effort for me so I will not do this change soon. (So my binary repo will stay SJLJ even though the AUR package is updated to DW2.)

I would also like to untie the architectures at some point and it would make sense to combine these breaking changes. (Maybe the archs could be easily untied by applying a simple search and replace for each i686-w64-mingw32 x86_64-w64-mingw32 and pkgname='mingw-w64- before building each package. I need a script to update the pkgrel before doing rebuilds anyways.)

Possibly i686 should also be dropped just completely. However, I don't like to drop it in a way which would prevent us from building i686 packages at all. The architecture should not be hard-coded because maybe it is still useful to build at least a subset of the packages for i686 (or even i386).

@tannisroot, yes I've planned to switch to dwarf, I'll probably do it for gcc 10 then

yes, some scientific software package still require fortran (arpack, ...)

tannisroot commented on 2019-08-19 20:32

Also, why is fortran enabled? Does anyone on Arch actually still use it?
