The MD5 signature seems wrong. Should be:

==> ERROR: idle.patch was not found in the build directory and is not a URL.

I see the boostmt.patch and idle.patch above in the "Sources" list, but where can I get them?

and also in the file PKGBUILD line 15:
source=(${pkg ver}_release.tar.bz2
16 idle.patch boostmt.patch)

thank you dear, I am new to arch...

I ported boost 1.47 compatibility fix from Fedora package, should do the trick.

True, it's because of update to boost 1.47. They changed a lot in their random library, including renames and implementation changes. I believe upstream will have to take action. Redhat has same problem:

If I find a way to fix it, or someone from other distro or upstream will do it, I will add the patch as well. For now if you want to use vpython, stick to boost 1.46. I updated boost dependency to say boost<1.47 for now, sorry.

I got the same error as mdschech got yesterday.
The cause is that the boost and boost-lib packages went from version 46 to 47.
I downgraded to 46 and vpython works again.

@schmidtbag: can you try current version?

schmidtbag commented on 2011-06-16 16:53

I'm not able to compile this either, I get the same issue as hiato

fonttools package is now up to date, looks like we have fully functional vpython again
