@altjsus: Do you know which patch (or commit or pull request) might have fixed the issue?

I'm willing to add the specific patches needed to get it working. I'm not willing, though, to find out by myself what individual commits or pull request are needed for that.

I had a problem with this package. After few minutes of playing it kicks me out of the game and I can't load any saving. Installing from (github) source fixed this.

@cassfalg done, thanks for letting me know about the patch

There's an issue with boost 1.66 which needs a fix backported, this is the commit that did it / way to the diff: git diff c9b5b13fb81b1ed142dee0e843101c6b8832ca95^ c9b5b13fb81b1ed142dee0e843101c6b8832ca95 It's just 2 lines changed, maybe you can add a patch to the package?

Thanks for the workaround.

Apparently it's a SDL bug. Downgraded sdl2 to 2.0.5-4 and it works.

Dunno, latest version (just updated) crashes too. Report upstream, I guess.

It doesn't run.

process 1676: arguments to dbus_type_is_basic() were incorrect, assertion "dbus_type_is_valid (typecode) || typecode == DBUS_TYPE_INVALID" failed in file dbus-signature.c line 322.
This is normally a bug in some application using the D-Bus library.
D-Bus not built with -rdynamic so unable to print a backtrace
Aborted (core dumped)

@bornofflame: This package here is based on a stable, tagged version. The *-git package is based on the latest development additions, which may not necessarily be stable.

This package here doesn't compile because the latest stable freeorion version is based on some older stuff.

I just compiled and released a new version of freeorion-git on AUR. This version (you can see the used commit SHA in the package version) compiled without errors.

@wookietreiber, what is the difference between this package and freeorion-git? I ask b/c I just cloned the repository and tried building it but got an error that looks very similar (if not the same) to what seylerius previously posted.
