Will update to 5.0 when it is released.

I am able to create a project but once it is finished the editor closes without showing that pop-up mentioned. The pop-up only happens when I try to open a project by re-opening the editor and trying to open it.

Specs are AMD 6350 CPU, 16GB ram, and nvidia 750ti with proprietary drivers so I don't believe that should be the issue.

Here is the full output from running via the console: http://pastebin.com/raw/X9sLvCMb.

Thanks for the help and I'll give their forum a try.

Do you mean it crashes when you click "Create Project" from the first screen? That is working for me so, and I haven't come across that pop-up.

Try starting from the command line and check for errors in the output. If I'm missing some dependencies for this package, that might identify what is missing.

cd /opt/unreal-engine/Engine/Binaries/Linux/
./UE4Editor

Also, check the minimum requirements, it could mean your graphics driver is not supported.

If your still stuck, the best place for support is probably the Unreal's forum or their IRC.

I'm having a similar problem as zerophase. The editor opens but when I try to open a code project it closes and a pop up says "The following modules are missing or built with a different engine version: libUE4Editor-MyProject.so". The part after the hyphen matches the name of the project. It then asks if I'd like to rebuild it which fails if I click yes.

I'm just trying to figure out why the editor keeps crashing while generating code projects.

I fixed the patch, I had the arguments in the wrong order.

I didn't need to remove ld.gold to build this, so I skipped that part. But I don't really know what that does exactly, it may still apply to other Unreal builds.

zerophase commented on 2016-05-12 23:19

Hey, is removing ld.gold from Clang still required for Unreal code projects?

@acerix The only thing with adding Linux patches upstream is Epic seems to take a very long time to integrate them into their code base. Some patches for cmake support have been waiting for months with little activity on Epic's part.

Whenever I run makepkg -sri I keep getting "patch: **** Only garbage was found in the patch input."

@corrupt
I applied your patch, it's a good fix for now, maybe it will be fixed upstream in the next release. I replaced $startdir which is deprecated.

@recured
I haven't read the entire license, so I'm not sure distributing the compiled version is allowed, although I figure it should be. Assuming it is, I would upload it, but I've used too much bandwidth just making this package that I can't spare 20 GB more this month. If you have a decent PC, it should only take an hour or so to build.

recured commented on 2016-05-11 16:09

Is there any chance of this getting a pre-built release?
It just seems like too much to compile

corrupt commented on 2016-05-09 18:26

It seems it's general practice to fill conflicts for such cases. Maybe you have clang in pacman.conf's ignore or noupgrade.

PKGBUILD has package checks. It's bad(for UE devs) to run pacman in setup script like that. They should have left it in wiki.
