That need to be fixed upstream but the patch should look something like that to fix the compilation:

# cat gcc9-fix.patch 
<                       strncpy(ifr.ifr_name, optarg, sizeof(ifr.ifr_name));
>                       strncpy(ifr.ifr_name, optarg, sizeof(ifr.ifr_name)-1);
<                       strncpy(shc.cf_name, optarg, sizeof(shc.cf_name));
>                       strncpy(shc.cf_name, optarg, sizeof(shc.cf_name)-1);

You can add the patch in PKGBUILD/prepare():

  # GCC 9 fix
  patch "programs/tncfg/tncfg.c" "$srcdir/gcc9-fix.patch"

It works for me but that need to be discussed with upstream team.

EDIT: similar code issue:

downgrading gcc to 8.3.0 didn't work at all for me. Same result as before.

Thank you!! Downgrading both gcc and gcc-libs to 8.3.0 and it worked!!

Thank you for sending me reports but since I am not able to solve it and I am not using Arch Linux as my daily driver currently it's only logical I orphan this package. PS: Maybe something to do with glibc or gcc version? Try downgrading to GCC 8.2.x and try to compile just to check if that's the issue.

@GPereira Tried this, still it didn't work.

GPereira commented on 2019-06-28 08:02

Can you try to downgrade python to the version arch Linux had in 14th of June and check if the problem is still there?

GPereira commented on 2019-06-28 08:00

This appears to be an issue upstream. I'll check this

gally commented on 2019-06-28 06:27

Same issue here. No custom compilation flags and same python version as previous comments.

skawikk commented on 2019-06-27 12:27


I have the same problem as Martchus;(

No custom compilation flags in /etc/makepkg.conf
Python 3.7.3
