qt4 was expelled from the official repositories due to

It will not be restored, because software needs to stop using qt4. It's fine for people to still use it via the AUR if they have old software that is not ported, but the proper solution is to get that software ported to qt5.

"It takes a long time to compile" is not a reason to move it to community.


Only Developers and Trusted Users have access to, and we will not be uploading qt4 there. If we wanted qt4, we would upload it to community, but we don't -- we have managed to move every package still being actively maintained in the official repos, over to qt5, and we want to stay that way.


Again, the proper long-term solution is to get software ported over to qt5.

@dviktor yes I know and that is the reason I posted it separately. But different or not, I can't install the qt4 package :)

@mozo your error with makepkg differs from error caused by AUR managers.

@FMB could you please post a topic on forum to help fixing it? I can't reproduce this on two different machines and I don't know why. This package was pushed to AUR several days ago from official repos. The only change made by me is patching asm volatile issue

It doesn't build for me:

I tried with trizen, yaourt, yay and makepkg to no avail.

With makepkg the error is the following:

Same error with makepkg :-(

Seems like some AUR managers can't handle echo lines in PKGBUILD properly... Very strange

RusWolf commented on 2019-05-04 19:42

Through yay, the package is going fine.

I usually use pacmac but I can use makepkg and did so for the last couple of tests. Happy to try whatever is needed but I'm about to go out for the evening, so will post any results tomorrow.

I just noticed that PKGBUILD already contains lines with -std=gnu++98. It should place them where appropriate. How do you install package? Could you try simple makepkg (that works for me)?

EDIT: yay builds and install package fine too. Tested on another machine

alfredo.ardito commented on 2019-05-04 17:55

Same problem as others. gcc version 8.3.0, default makepkg.conf
