To use a custom revision, just append #commit=<hash> to the git repo URL entry in the sources in the PKGBUILD (help can be found there : Note that the current package named with suffix -git precisely indicates that the package is built from latest sources. Fixed-version packages did exist some time ago, but I guess maintenance is a time-consuming task in rolling distros. Also ghdl versions are not released often so fixed-version packages would be often obsolete, making a mess of bug reports, etc. So, well, such occasional issues with lib dependencies depending on distro, are much less of a burden to handle from developers side ;-)

Thanks for the tip, it will do for now. Would be nice if there was a way of forcing a specific git revision when building -git packages, this must probably have been asked before. (Otherwise I guess we can always create a separate PKGBUILD with a fixed git revision, but that's less convenient.)

Hi OpusOne, as a temporary workaround you can compile the package with makepkg --nocheck. This will skip the post-compilation checks ans also not require the problematic python dependencies.

OpusOne commented on 2023-06-05 06:45 (UTC)

The build currently breaks due to ghdl not being compatible with python-pyvhdlmodel 0.26 yet, while 0.26 is the latest version of python-pyvhdlmodel and thus what python-pyvhdlmodel-git will pull. I unfortunately don't know how we can circumvent the problem, short of writing non-git AUR packages (let me know if there is), and there isn't any for either packages at this point.

The package python-pytooling-terminalui no longer exists. I think it now resides in python-pytooling directly.

Dependency updates (ditto for -llvm):

Additionally, this is required before ./configure for proper debug package support:

    export ADA_FLAGS="$CFLAGS -fno-strict-aliasing"

Other workaround on user side is to skip check with makepkg --nocheck. This removes the need for these python dependencies.

Editing the pkgver in a VCS package doesn't actually do anything, as it is generated during build. Just rebuilding python-pyvhdlmodel-git and changing the ghdl depends to python-pyvhdlmodel>=0.12 should do the trick.

Update fails at check() stage on my Arch installation due to a dependency on python-pyvhdlmodel v0.12.0.


The python unittests provided with GHDL depend on the latest python-pyvhdlmodel now.

I had the following, now outdated dependency installed:

community/python-pyvhdlmodel 0.11.1-1 (46.0 KiB 318.0 KiB) 
    An abstract language model of VHDL written in Python
Workaround that worked for me now

I had to replace my outdated pyvhdlmodel with latest:


by installing the AUR package with

yay -Syu --editmenu

and editing the pkgver in the PKGBUILD to point to v0.12.0:


After allowing yay to remove the conflicting old dependency, GHDL-mcode-git update was successful.

Hope this helps someone. This workaround will not be necessary soon I guess.

I think you should trim one digit from the commit hash, so it matches the output of pkgver():
