Fixed issued wth boost. @hwkiller you are have access to push commits to this package.

hwkiller commented on 2019-08-07 22:07

Yet another update: This has been fixed.

But -DRSTUDIO_USE_SYSTEM_BOOST=yes should be added to the cmake call.

hwkiller commented on 2019-08-07 20:24

Just an update; I made a comment about this on github. They did not intend to force a bundled boost. There will be a PR soon remedying this situation, after which point the patch will be unnecessary. May need to specify an option though to declare whether or not to use system or rstudio-tools boost.

This might not compile soon. The current git revision has a cmake setting that disallows cmake from searching for system-installed boost; their plan seems to be to provide a self-contained boost version.

I had to patch this check out in rstudio-server-git; if necessary, we could take the same patch over here too.

There may be another way of disabling the local-boost-only setting, but I could not find one.

Confirmed: This does not compile as of 8/7/2019. If you grab the patch from rstudio-server-git (boost-system.patch), include it into this source array, and add patch -p1 < ${srcdir}/boost-system.patch, it works.

gwt-2.8.2 is required in upstream.

hey ConorIA ,

I have tested the file 'EDIT: built package'

Is working well.

ConorIA commented on 2019-02-24 02:51

I think that I have this package building successfully with the system QT libs again. That said, there have been times when I have lost a lot of good work time because I had to re-compile RStudio before I could get anything done (damn boost!), so I want to make sure to test the changes before I push them here. I'd love if some additional folks could try the PKGBUILD at (you can ignore the .info.yaml file) and report their results.

EDIT: built package

maquiavel commented on 2019-02-12 02:21

hey guys! Qt framework is already up to date in Arch Linux. 5.12 is the pattern. I have troubles with rstudio-desktop-git: black screen when I open application. I have compiled directly of rstudio source on github with qt 5.11.1 and works good.

About to push some changes that should address the last couple of issues. Since I am a co-maintainer, I think it is useful to explain my reasoning for each change:

1) Change hunspell dep to hunspell-en_US: hunspell doesn't actually install any dictionaries to /usr/share/myspell/dicts, so on a minimal, fresh system, this will cause the install to complain that the dictionaries weren't installed. I opted for en_US, as it is probably the most common "default" language. I figured the rest of the world wouldn't appreciate me imposing en_CA on them! contains AU, GB, and US ... not sure if we need all of them.

2) Remove the stuff: no need to keep it, as the build process wasn't even looking at it, just the link to /usr/share/myspell/dicts.

3) Change java-environment dep to jdk8-openjdk: 9, 10, and 11 fail to build.

4) Change md5sums to sha256sums: seems to be more common.

5) No extract gin: we extract it later with unzip, so no need to extract it to $srcdir.

5) Remove .install file: pacman now handles all of the icon cache and desktop file stuff automatically (if I'm not mistaken).
