All of those packages were up-to-date and the same versions as yours- turns out I had qt5-styleplugins-git which of course needed to be rebuilt. I leave this comment in case anyone else suffers the same stupidity I did.

I would have realized this earlier if I had pkgbrowser for an overview :P For those with this issue who seek to avoid it again, prolly better to use qt5-styleplugins instead. Sorry for the bother...

@GSF1200S. I just re-built to make sure, and everything is working okay for me. It looks like your Qt setup is out of sync. Here is what I currently have:

gcc 6.3.1 20170109, python 3.6.0, qt 5.8.0, sip 4.19, pyqt 5.7.1 cython 0.25.2

Cannot mix incompatible Qt library (version 0x50701) with this library (version 0x50800)
Aborted (core dumped)

Arch is completely up-to-date, and I installed pkgbrowser again just to make sure. Not too hot on python/QT stuff so perhaps Ive muffed up something. Had this problem awhile ago, but I think an update fixed it. Havent been able to test locale fixes you mentioned on the forums because I cant launch! Ill keep looking into it...

Yes. Tried again. Now starts.

blackhole commented on 2017-02-01 17:32

But now is compiling fine with qt5

martynjy commented on 2017-02-01 17:23

Ditto @blackhole.
Installed 'pkgbrowser-qt4' instead.

@cryzed. Yes, every major version change of python can break a wide range of python packages, any one of which may directly or indirectly affect pkgbrowser. At the very least, the libalpm extension module will need to be recompiled (using cython) - that's what caused the import-error referred to in the comment below yours.

cryzed commented on 2017-01-07 00:45

Why are you using dependencies like "python<3.6" and "python<3.7"? Do you expect every new Python version to break backwards-compatibility?

blackhole commented on 2017-01-06 16:04

Maybe the new python was not completely installed. Just now...

latest upgrade of python to 3.6.0-1 breaks pkgbrowser dependency 'python<3.6'
