Temporarily hold to commit fcab78b9 (2019-10-01 18:21:31.) Otherwise, fails to build. There are several breaking commits after this, involving packaging failures on ada and a bootstrap failure when comparing stages 2 and 3.

*** STICKY ***

These gcc*-git packages replace core's gcc* (non-git) packages. Technically, replacing the system gcc-libs can be dangerous. The possibility of a new upstream gcc git commit breaking your system isn't zero. When you compile and install this, you're using the latest git source, so you may be the first Arch user to be using that particular commit.

In practice, I haven't seen an Arch user report such a problem for many years. Just understand that if installing these packages causes your computer to eat you, don't have your loved ones blame me. Oh, and know that if things go wrong, all you *should* have to do is uninstall the git version and go back to a previously working git version or even the core version. You might be able to do this while your system is still running, or you might have to do something like boot off an Arch ISO CD.

fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

Please make sure you have the correct access rights
and the repository exists.

The repo has been randomly doing this occasionally for a few moments. If you experience this error, wait a minute, and just try again. You can also run into this if you manually clone the repo.

PKGBUILD has been re-written during the transition from aur3 to aur4. Based off the core repo's gcc 5.1.0-5.

Replaces the system gcc.

A week ago, gcc switched the default standard used to C++14, which has caused many issues. (Primarily commit 97e9c847) The current PKGBUILD checks out commit 12dcc3b7, from earlier in the day when this change was made.

If you want to use the actual master code before these issues get ironed out, comment the "git checkout 12dcc3b7" line in pkgver() in the PKGBUILD file.

lucianolorenti, how did you solve your issue? I get exactly the same error message with my gcc-gcj-package for version 4.9.0.

lucianolorenti commented on 2014-02-23 19:56

I'm sorry, an old makepkg.conf was bothering.
It compiles fine

Allan commented on 2014-02-23 00:31

Compiles fine here.

Merging into gcc-git.

git version of gcc - package designed to be installed alongside system gcc.

you need to add the helper script and license into a source array
