@j.taala, could you please upgrade to 1.6.1 or git master? Because of

j.taala commented on 2020-07-31 00:19 (UTC)

Thanks @sagb, built successfully and have removed -fcommon flag.

sagb commented on 2020-07-30 20:40 (UTC)

Since 1.5.0 it may be built without -fcommon. Thank you for maintaining the package.

@j.taala Thanks.

j.taala commented on 2020-06-16 11:47 (UTC)

Thanks again @L0-FF, just pushed changes (after confirming can build again).

j.taala commented on 2020-06-16 06:26 (UTC)

Thanks L0-FF for the detailed post and fix. Will update this in a couple of hours (when I get home). Cheers.

Currently does not compile properly on latest Arch releases.

Package requires CFLAGS="$CFLAGS -fcommon", to line 26, in the PKGBUILD. To get: CFLAGS="$CFLAGS -fcommon" ./configure --prefix=/usr

or see this github issue/ re: gstm for a mere sustainable fix.

github/gstm/ Add -fno-common to Makefile GCC flags

** Issue has to do with recent versions to GCC enforcing proper declaration of global vars.

Good call. Updated.

Hello j.taala,

Thanks for your prompt action!

Actually, it's nicer to make git listed in makedepends not depends. As it is only used to fetch code from source and not necessary after that.

Although the PKGBUILD can work now, if you would like to modify it again, also remember to update pkgrel to 2.

j.taala commented on 2019-11-13 02:53 (UTC)

Hey Yuanji. Have added git and libxpm as deps. Cheers mate.

yuanji commented on 2019-11-13 02:43 (UTC)

hello j.taala,

Can you add git to makedepends and add libxpm to depends?

Without those dependents, I can't build successfully within a clean chroot. You can easily apply the patch below if you would like.

Thanks in advance.

Hey yutakatay, could you update this PKGBUILD and perhaps implement previous requests (like adding dependencies from sagb and bumping version)? If can't, I'm happy to adopt this package and keep it up to date.

jjbeard commented on 2018-12-08 15:07 (UTC)

Running ./ before ./configure fixes issues with the automake version (upstream files are 1.15, Arch is at 1.16).

sagb commented on 2018-04-12 12:06 (UTC) (edited on 2018-04-12 12:06 (UTC) by sagb)

Could you please add the dependencies: libxrender, libxrandr, libpng, uthash, and bump version number, there is 1.3.0 available. Feel free to add issues on github.

Regards, upstream author.

milos commented on 2017-12-01 12:12 (UTC)

There is a missing dependency: uthash Other than that it compiles and installs OK, good job.
