Seems that a lot of 32-bit libraries have this error; I got it with lib32-gtk-xfce-engine, and the issue disappeared after downgrading.

The most recent version of glib2 this will build against is 2.46.2 There was a change since then that causes the build to fail in this and other applications. A similar error is encountered when attempting to build lib32-glibmm against glib2 >2.46.2

nipsky: I'm getting a similar failure when attempting to build. I suspect this has something to do with the update to glib2 2.48.0; however, I don't believe I've built this since 2.46.0 so I can't be sure. It appears there has been a change that festige is not compatible with in the newer versions. I'll try to dig into this when I have some time and see if I can't work out a solution.

Users can downgrade glib2 to an earlier version from the Arch Linux Archive; however, this may cause issues elsewhere.

I believe it is listed:

if [ "${CARCH}" = 'x86_64' ]; then
depends=('python2-pyqt4' 'python' 'wine' 'lib32-gtk2' 'lib32-jack')
elif [ "${CARCH}" = 'i686' ]; then
depends=('python2-pyqt4' 'gtk2' 'jack' 'python' 'wine')

I had to download pyqt in order to build. Not sure if it's a runtime dependency or just a build dependency, but it should be listed as a dependency.

In addition, Makefile must be edited in order to compile this package with qt4.

qubodup, I had the same issue using PKGBUILD posted from abique and solved it by installing the needed 32bit-libs, gcc-multilib isnt enough you also need lib32-jack2, lib32-gdk-pixbuf2 and so on...

Modeler commented on 2014-04-10 15:08

qubodup, did you install gcc-multilib? It built fine for me on a 64-bit machine.

qubodup commented on 2013-11-15 15:33

Thanks abique, unfortunately it does not work on my 64bit machine:

Installing lib32-gtk2 seems to help a bit but it still fails:
