While constructing a multilib PKGBUILD for this software one stumbled across some updates users here may find useful. An updated PKGBUILD and resources can be found here:

Some users have suggested that the resource at is slow and unreliable and that may provide faster and more reliable downloads.

WoefulDerelict commented on 2017-05-25 22:03

All integrity checks pass in local builds suggesting the checksums in the PKGBUILD are still valid. One has had absolutely no issue building this package in a clean chroot via the devtools scripts for x86_64 and i686 systems. []

These environments use the latest packages available from the repositories when building the package. Users experiencing build issues should ensure their system is up to date and no foreign packages are interfering with the build or attempt building this utilising the tools mentioned above.

sputnick: bison is part of the base-devel group. The base and base-devel groups are necessary prerequisites BEFORE attempting to build packages. It is not necessary for maintainers to include packages from either of these groups in the dependency array.

Try runnig this:
before makepkg -sri

sputnick commented on 2017-05-25 10:07

Please update PKGBUILD.

And bison should be added to the make depends

I'm running into this error every time I try to install qtwebkit:
../../Source/WTF/wtf/SaturatedArithmetic.h: In function ‘bool signedAddOverflows(int32_t, int32_t, int32_t&)’:
../../Source/WTF/wtf/SaturatedArithmetic.h:49:29: warning: suggest parentheses around operand of ‘!’ or change ‘&’ to ‘&&’ or ‘!’ to ‘~’ [-Wparentheses]
return !((ua ^ ub) >> 31) & (uresult ^ ua) >> 31;

After the first Error this starts an endless Loop, which displays me this Error
I've already reinstalled gcc-multilib and I did the workaround from underneath

@iraqab and @ tengu
thanks for the advice
I also downloaded the files manually and it start to build fine and downloads the source files but runs into an error again after that. Did you experience the same?

via Yaourt still doesn't work, but I downloaded libxml2 manually as you suggested, edited the PKGBUILD as said in this thread and building qtwebkit worked just fine. It's defeniteley the ICU-flag. Thanks for the hints!

rakab commented on 2017-05-08 09:52

Do you have extra enabled in /etc/pacman.conf
If not be sure to add or uncomment these lines:
Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

Even if it's there, try
pacman -Syu

And then again:
yaourt -G libxml2

Anyway, if this doesn't work, try donwloading libxml2 manually:
Create libxml2 direcotry and download souce from this link in that folder:
Just create that 2 files and copy code from given link. After this, modify PKGBUILD and try building the package with makepkg -sri

tengu commented on 2017-05-07 11:02

If I run:
yaourt -G libxml2
I get:
curl: (22) The requested URL returned error: 404 Not Found

which isn't quite suprising, since libxml2 is not AUR but extra:
yaourt -Ss libxml2
extra/libxml2 2.9.4+16+g07418011-1 [installed]
XML parsing library, version 2


nibor commented on 2017-05-06 16:14

thanks, but I must be doing something wrong...
yaourt -G libxml2
still results in curl: (78) RETR repsonse: 550

a directory libxml2 is created but it remains empty, so there is no PKGBUILD I could edit...
