simgear>=2020.3.19 simgear<2020.3.20 needs to be added to the depends array (please calculate the versions from flightgear-git's $pkgver dynamically.):

Why are you building from source? Here's the binary version:

On my Manjaro system, /etc/makepkg.conf has the line:



On my EndeavourOS system, the line in /etc/makepkg:


is commented.

I uncommented the line on EndeavourOS, and the package builds without error. Maybe some kind of race or synchronization issue?

jdjennings18 commented on 2023-12-21 05:02 (UTC)

The plot thickens. My build failures all occurred on an EndeavorOS system. I have a Manjaro installation on the same machine. I switched over to that, and it builds without petris' patch. I'll have to look into what's different on the two systems.

Thanks petris. I tried your fix, but the build still fails with the same error. Maybe I misunderstand where to add your fix? I added it as the last line of the prepare() function in PKGBUILD.

Added as an issue on the github project page.

petris commented on 2023-12-18 13:14 (UTC)

I'm getting the same error as jdjennings18; I fixed it by adding the following line to the bottom of the prepare function, though this should be unnecessary.

echo 'add_dependencies(fgfs embeddedresources)' >> src/Main/CMakeLists.txt

Build fails on new version 2020.3.19-1
