@Vmeup MS Code uses as prerequisit for building Node.JS, >= 8.9.1, < 9.0.0 see

Vmeup commented on 2018-10-03 19:35

I have run into an installation problem where initially my installed version of Node was 10.x, so I reverted the package to Node 9.x. When trying to Install after reverting Node, I run into an issue of

'node: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory'

Looking into my system I currently have installed... Is there a workaround for this to build MS Code? Or is it safe to revert the libicu18n package to 61 without breaking dependencies for other system funcitons?

Updated to work more like the version of code recently adopted into [community], including using the system electron.

Needs a small tweak to the patch to build on latest master:

Hi, @Zrax

I made couple of improvements to the PKGBUILD and posted updated version here:

Changed are:

  1. Added aarch64 architecture to support ArchLinuxARM

  2. Added aarch64.patch (until upstream PR is not merged

  3. Updated pkgver() function to return relevant information. Current function is useless, since returns same string for every build. Updated one returns something like 1.24.1_777c8e57e0 (format is {last_tag}_{last_commit_hash}).

Please feel free to adopt. Let me know if you have any questions.

gtk3 please.

Looks like they're back to GTK3 yet again:

It might be a good idea to hard depend on nodejs-lts-carbon now, since building with Node versions >= 9 is not supported by upstream. It still builds with 9.x, but 10.x doesn't work at all.

Zrax, could the VSCode folder path be changed from ~/.config/Code - OSS to ~/.config/Code ?

It seems like some VSCode extensions may misbehave because they can't find the configuration folder since it's not in the default path.

Here's an example:

I'm going to leave gtk3 in here since I expect it will be merged again soon... Also, please don't use the out-of-date flag for dependency changes -- that's not really what it's for...
