Electric Sheep will not run with the updated boost-libs in manjaro. electric sheep needs manjaro has

I rebuilt the package against the new boost-libs and electric sheep runs again.

How I can add this screensaver into xscreensaver?

The version seems to be taken from clientversion.h:

Also see:

Seems that they simply forgot to update version in

The version is 3.7b3, see here

There is no 3.0.2 anywhere there.

@robin0800 @txtsd @scippio

GL/glext.h now seems to be exporting functions for GL_ARB_shader_objects extension, but by default they skip defining prototypes for functions. I suspect that electricsheep itself should be updated to use new API, but for now the following workaround in PKGBUILD helped me:

I flagged It as out of date as the package will not build. Is it a glee problem?
