I would be happy to take over as a (co-)maintainer :)

opencpn fails to compile with gcc-10. See details here:

Hi @gromain, I've switched from Arch some time ago. The only reason I updated the repo was because it looked abandoned. I haven't got an Arch distro installed to continue maintaining this, so you are welcome to pick it up again if you are still using Arch.

Hi, I realized I'm not the maintainer for this repo! Sorry @ruppor, I got mixed up and answered as if I were you!

Still I believe the problem lies in the cmake/GetArch.cmake . This file has had a big overhaul since the latest release, you may want to add the changes as a patch file in the meantime.

Stay safe

I did not realize it did was not working, I'll check that later today then. I know there are lot of differences between this PKGBUILD and the one from Opencpn-git since this one has been released about a year ago.

Thanks for the heads up!

gHello Romain, I tried to install this package on my RPi 4 with Manjaro 20.04 The CMAKE added wrong compilation Flags for 'arm' architecture.

In fact, it didn't recognize the arm architecture so it take i386 one (as default). This implies a '-messe2' option in the compilation flag which is not allowed for the RPi (and arm achitecture). Have you already noticed this point ?

More specifically, in the file CMakelists.txt, the following lines are commented.

SET (ARCH "armhf")

I'll go back to your opencpn-git package which seems ok.

Hello, Using this PKGBUILD sends back a warning from CMAKE. Apparently, CMAKE should not be used without specifying a folder, as this will be removed and sends an error in the future. The opencpn doc recommends creating a build folder and building inside this folder. This is something I've done in the opencpn-git repo ( ).

I believe it's important to keep this in mind for the next update (IMO it's not urgent to change this now).

Good to know it worked for you, Npa. I've checked the list of explicit dependencies - and couldn't find webkit2gtk there. I didn't have to install webkit2gtk to compile, but it could be that it is an actual dependency. Would be interesting to know if anyone else had a similar problem or maybe it's your system specific.

I install it today and the build was OK so thanks again Ruppor. BUT : The build failed the first time and i have to install webkit2gtk to success. This package is not in the dependencies. Is it normal ?

ruppor, thank you, I can confirm its building and running on an i7 linux arch box. (Linux Z77 5.0.13-arch1-1-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Sun May 5 18:05:41 UTC 2019 x86_64 GNU/Linux)
