In my case, I had to adjust the CMakeLists.txt for the fgviewer utility by adding


into the target_link_libraries.

(inserted one line after

Otherwise, fgviewer would not link.

I'll try to inform the flighgear team on github about this issue as well.

Thanks for the update, FredBezies! Unfortunately I am stuck with building simgear. Using your update there, it apparently fails to create a "config.h" which is required in the udns module. I'll investigate.

What's the reason for FG to degrade from a [community] package to a poorly maintained AUR one anyway? (No offense to the current maintainers) :)

Unfortnately, I get this weird error regarding the installation of simgear:

"-- Found Boost: /usr/lib64/cmake/Boost-1.71.0/BoostConfig.cmake (found version "1.71.0")
CMake Error at CMakeModules/BoostTestTargets.cmake:55 (message): NOTE: boost::test-based targets and tests cannot be added: boost >= 1.34.0 required but not found. (found: '1.71.0' want >=103400) You may disable ENABLE_TESTS to continue without the tests. Call Stack (most recent call first): CMakeLists.txt:220 (include)

Any ideas how to resolve this? thanks a lot!

UPDATE: I was able to install Simgear with boost 1.71 by passing the option -ENABLE_TESTS=FALSE to the cmake command.

Flightgear 2018.3.4 is outdated.

Newer Flightgear 2019.1.1 has been released since 2019-03-14!!!

@tim.hellhake I've just added you as a co-maintainer on flightgear and flightgear-data so that you can test and update all three packages at once.

tim.hellhake commented on 2019-09-20 21:50

Flightgear depends on simgear. needs to be updated first.

papakilo commented on 2019-08-25 09:18

Hi Barthalion, tim.hellhake, FredBezies. Are you still going to maintain this package?

FredBezies commented on 2019-04-16 20:37

@dwheeler: added qt5-svg to makedepends(). Hope it helps!
