I get some errors when building this.

"Scanning dependencies of target fgtestlib [ 12%] Building CXX object tests/CMakeFiles/fgtestlib.dir/__/src/Main/options.cxx.o /tmp/yaourt-tmp-aramus/aur-flightgear/src/flightgear-2018.2.2/src/Main/options.cxx: In Elementfunktion »void flightgear::Options::processArgResult(int)«: /tmp/yaourt-tmp-aramus/aur-flightgear/src/flightgear-2018.2.2/src/Main/options.cxx:2266:61: Fehler: Umwandlung von »vector<std::__cxx11::basic_string<char>>« in nicht-skalaren Typen »vector<const char*="">« angefordert vector <const char*="">devices = smgr.get_available_devices(); ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~^~ make[2]: [tests/CMakeFiles/fgtestlib.dir/build.make:63: tests/CMakeFiles/fgtestlib.dir/__/src/Main/options.cxx.o] Fehler 1 make[1]: [CMakeFiles/Makefile2:1869: tests/CMakeFiles/fgtestlib.dir/all] Fehler 2 make: *** [Makefile:163: all] Fehler 2 ==> FEHLER: Ein Fehler geschah in build(). "</const></const></std::__cxx11::basic_string<char>

Thats German, sry. It says something about converting a vector<std::__cxx11::basic_string<<char>> to vector<const char*="">. And then ends with error 2</const></std::__cxx11::basic_string<<char>

Hi sgsaenger,

Thanks for the feedback. I have made the changes to the package based on your suggestions.

Thanks for maintaining this. Could you remove the addition of flightgear-data to the dependencies of the package? As it seems to me, this package is not necessary as the launcher can fetch the data by itself, so flightgear-data could be fully optional (-> optdepends). At least, merge it into the parent-depends, so AUR-helpers learn about the dependency at the right time.

Hi scottbouchm,

You will need to build and install flightgear-data first, as the flightgear package depends on it.

Hi, just tried installing again using the Manjaro software manager GUI, it seemed positive, until:

==> Creating package "flightgear"... -> Generating .PKGINFO file... -> Generating .BUILDINFO file... -> Generating .MTREE file... -> Compressing package... ==> Leaving fakeroot environment. ==> Finished making: flightgear 2018.2.2-1 (Wed 13 Jun 2018 10:32:43 BST) ==> Cleaning up...

Failed to prepare transaction: could not satisfy dependencies: unable to satisfy dependency 'flightgear-data' required by flightgear

Hi A23Bubba,

To get the package please click on "Download snapshot" in the menu on the right hand side of this page. Once you have downloaded the file you will need to extract it and then build the package with makepkg, when the compiling process is done you can then install the package with pacman. If you need any more help please let me know and I will assist where I can.

How do I get the package? Do you have to give it to me? what do I need to do?

Hi Deons,

Thanks for writing, and thanks for updating the repo, it's appreciated!! I appreciate we all have other things in life to worry about.

I'll try installing again now.

Thanks, Scott.

Hi all,

Sorry for any inconvenience that was caused by not having these packages updated on time. I do care about this project and will ensure that the packages are updated on a timely manner, unfortunately I had a massive situation that I had to deal with and could not get to it as quickly as I would have like to.

Hi Jake,

Thanks for the comment, a shame it's been left out of date.. I've never done a manual build / install, will have to find the guidance and apply your instructions... any pointers are welcome!

Giving him the benefit of the doubt, maybe Deon has bigger things in life to worry about right now... is there anyone else who can update this repo?

Cheers, Scott.
