Please add cmake and replace intltool with gettext as make dependencies. If you wish to compile with GeoIP support enable -DUSE_GEOIP=ON switch.

Updated PKGBUILD to use new cmake build system.

Hmm, OK. I did not understand how it works.
I thought it was a selection. From what you say, everyone build a different package depending on the time it installs it. I understand now.

We try to push commits thaht compiles well, but it does not guarantee that things will not be broken. There is a fact, the code is very old and rusty, and some efforts to update it transform it into an unstable alchemy difficult to stabilize. It is both the bleeding edge and both the old and rusty. ;)

So users of this package know what to expect… It is not a problem, but it means that we need another stable packages for other people.

Thanks for what you do.

Hi @illwieckz, I created a new xqf-git package here:

I will request this one be deleted or merged into that one.

The way VCS packages work on Arch Linux is that when the user makes this PKGBUILD, it automatically pulls the latest version from git. I can specify a branch or a specific commit, but it's standard for PKGBUILDs to just pull the latest from master. Most projects' master branch is usually in a "buildable" state and Arch Linux users know there may be some inherit instability or problems by being on the bleeding edge :) I have it setup like that right now and it's working OK, but if it becomes too unstable or not able to be built, I can force a specific version.

Hi, I created an issue dedicated to help you to package XQF 1.0.6:

illwieckz commented on 2014-11-06 07:06

Hi, XQF has moved to Github:

An 1.0.6 release has been published, see ;-)

Beware, the repository is in active cleaning, many things can break so I heavily recommend you tu uses the releases. We will try to release early and often.

If you really want to follow the git repo, the last safe commit is

Please do not use any newer commit without asking before. ;-)

Thanks a lot for what you do.

Thanks, I removed gdk-pixubf from the deps.

Removing gdk-pixbuf from the makedepends saved me from having to install gtk and it seems to have worked fine. Also, the fix posted by mathias.steiger for the qstat package works with the qstat-svn package. Just thought I'd let you know. Thanks You.
