It seems that the file in question compiles fine without the C++11 flag. Adding this second sed line to the PKGBUILD to remove the flag only for that file fixes the problem for me:

sed -i "/irawanEnv =/airawanEnv.RemoveFlags(['-std=gnu\+\+11'])" src/bsdfs/SConscript

(Note I modified the flag to -std=gnu++11 to match your updated PKGBUILD)

EDIT: The comment box garbles the backslashes. There should be three before each '+' character.

@dTal Notice the issue a while ago now. Sadly my boost-foo is quite lacking, and sourly not in any way suitable for reworking Jakob's code. Check this comment in SConsScript ;)

# The Irawan-Marschner plugin uses a Boost::Spirit parser, which makes it
# pretty heavy stuff to compile. Go easy on the compiler flags:

Will try to suppress irawan bsdf all together, let's see if that works.

Update: Done, check if that's working for you?

The build erroneously complains that xercesc is not installed - in fact, checking config.log shows that it does, but that it throws an error very like this one:


sed -i -e 's:gnu2:gnu2\x27, \x27-std=c++11:g'

to the PKGBUILD, allows the build to continue.

Unfortunately, build still fails, much later, with:

In file included from src/bsdfs/irawan.cpp:33:0:src/bsdfs/irawan.h: In constructor ‘mitsuba::YarnGrammar<iterator>::YarnGrammar(const mitsuba::Properties&)’:src/bsdfs/irawan.h:314:84: error: no matching function for call to ‘bind(<unresolved function="" overloaded="" type="">, const type, const _1_type&)’</unresolved></iterator>

I notice a strange 'quirk', ( no idea where it originate from )
When rebuilding package you can end up with truncated archive producing empty file upon installation.
Which in turns prevent successful rebuild of package.
Steps to resolve the issue involve removing mitsuba-git prior to reinitialize build procedure.
Maybe it's specific case to my system but be aware.

Thanks bartus!
Just need to modify checksum in your fix for patches and works like a charm.

Mitsuba relies upon GLEWmx witch was discontinued as of glew 2.0.0.

A 'work around' build procedure requires:
1. Build glew-1.13.0 (non-conflicting, can be instlled alongside glew 2.0.0)
2. Build collada-dom-mitsuba (working PKGBUILD and patch)
> 0001-fix-return-type-thanks-to-22.patch :
3. Finaly build mitsuba with altered PKGBUILD and python3.5.patch
> python3.5.patch :
All tested in clean chroot build.
