Freecad is very unstable on my Arch. :-( In Sketch mode it always breaks with log:

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

@lonaowna: Thank you for the tip! After an short attempt at downgrading didn't work, I decided to download the current AppImage version to create meshes. I can live with that, until the issue is resolved. :-)

@neo2001 yes, there are some compatibility issues with HDF5 1.12 and MED. See also the discussion over at the med package.

I think downgrading HDF5 should provide a temporary solution.

Although I did not recompile in the last weeks, suddenly I can't create meshes using the default mesher anymore (also for older, existing models).

I just get an error: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I did recompile it (without errors) after that, but it didn't change anything.

Can anyone confirm this?

The PYSIDE2RCCBINARY issue was fixed upstream a while ago:

If you are still having trouble building, remove your build files and try again. If there are still issues, leave a comment here.

Could we have this patch as a quick fix, package won't build without it.

dviktor commented on 2019-12-23 12:05

Just add -DPYSIDE2RCCBINARY=/usr/bin/rcc to cmake options in PKGBUILD to resolve issue with PYSIDE2RCCBINARY-NOTFOUND

lonaowna commented on 2019-12-19 16:51

This package does not build with PySide2 5.14 (currently in testing). It fails with the following message:

[  4%] Generating
/bin/sh: PYSIDE2RCCBINARY-NOTFOUND: command not found

See FreeCAD issue 4229 for more information.

dviktor commented on 2019-11-27 13:43

Tried with latest PySide2 and Shiboken2 but problem still exists

@s218, it's great that you found a workaround. but for me, tweaking pkgbuild and stuff is counterproductive. Plus, the time to compile this package takes a long time. I did use distcc to speed the process but then comes compilation issues... I'll currently stick with the AppImage version, and it's delivered by Freecad developers, rather official. Thanks.
