Thanks for reminding me. I made a patch to makepkg that allows blender-git to build:

Still having the same problem as escentrix with the blender-addon.git folder as well. Has there been a solution yet?

stativ commented on 2015-01-01 12:06

There seems to be a bug in makepkg. I will investigate that more.

I'm trying to get this compiled ('yaourt -S blender-git' as well as manual makepkg) but I keep running into:

Everything was downloaded okay and I can see that blender-addons.get is there. Not sure what to do next.

mrunion: I just tried it and it compiles fine. Thank you for all the work on fixing the issue.

The Blender ticket has been marked resolved and it appears they have (or will shortly) fix the issue.

The error I'm getting doesn't necessarily relate to these changes AFAIK. Here is the error:

/tmp/tmp.HuPKkPCapN/blender-git/src/blender/source/blender/blenfont/intern/blf_glyph.c: In function ‘blf_glyph_add’:
/tmp/tmp.HuPKkPCapN/blender-git/src/blender/source/blender/blenfont/intern/blf_glyph.c:265:13: error: conversion to ‘int’ from ‘unsigned int’ may change the sign of the result [-Werror=sign-conversion]
g->width = bitmap.width;
/tmp/tmp.HuPKkPCapN/blender-git/src/blender/source/blender/blenfont/intern/blf_glyph.c:266:14: error: conversion to ‘int’ from ‘unsigned int’ may change the sign of the result [-Werror=sign-conversion]

cc1: some warnings being treated as errors

make[2]: *** [source/blender/blenfont/CMakeFiles/bf_blenfont.dir/intern/blf_glyph.c.o] Error 1

make[1]: *** [source/blender/blenfont/CMakeFiles/bf_blenfont.dir/all] Error 2
make[1]: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....

As you can see, the problem is that the setting -Werror=sign-conversion is catching an uncast type coersion. Lines 265 and 266 (where the error occurs) are:

265 g->width = bitmap.width;
266 g->height = bitmap.rows;

The problem is that g->width/height are type "int", but bitmap.wdith/height are type "unsigned int". That is causing the issue.

I tried an explicit cast (I changed the code to g->width = (int)bitmap.width, ... etc.). Blender compiled fine this way.

I added "-Wno-error=sign-conversion" to the CXX_FLAGS in my makepkg.conf file and the build failed the same way. (I may have not done this correctly, though, so YMMV.)

I have reported this as a Blender bug. (

Just to let everybody know, there was a change in default cmake build configs (in main CMakeLists.txt) recently that may be the reason for unexpected build behaviors.

Has anyone had any problems building blender in the past 3-4 days? There is an error with a "conversion" at about 52%. The problem is with blf_glyph.c. I think I know the fix, but I am wondering why the code would start failing now, when it seems the Blender code hasn;t changed in a long time. I think it's because of aglibc update, but I haven't dug any further.

Does anyone else have a building issue?

stativ commented on 2014-11-25 20:58

It seems so. I updated the PKGBUILD accordingly.
