Bad timing there. The OpenEXR 3.0 release is very new and the package was indeed last successfully build with OpenEXR 2.0.

I have to get some time to update the git repo and the PKGBUILD.

Thanks for your feedbacks.

Also, you download some latest version from git.

So, your package should be renamed to gthumb-openexr-extension-git according to the packaging guidelines. A proper provides=("gthumb-openexr-extension=${pkgver}") you already have; a conflicts=("gthumb-openexr-extension") should be added as well.

Also, the $pkgver should reflect any updates to the git repository -- so you should add a pkgver()-function which dynamically creates the package version -- ideally beginning with the upstream's notion (like 3.10), and then some monotoneously increasing information about the actual commit (git rev-list --count HEAD e.g., maybe adding latest commit date and short hash if wanted).

Thanks for maintaining!

I needed to install openexr2 to make it compile. The proper depends then would be 'openexr<3' 'openexr>=2' instead of openexr.

And this then would break other software which needs the up to date openexr. Can maybe the cmake-call be adapted to use the up to date openexr version 3* instead?

Hi dreieck,

Great to know this package can be usefull. I have changed the build system to cmake. It shall now work.

Let me know if you have any issue.

I get the build error

==> Starting build()...

ERROR: Neither directory contains a build file

Thanks for maintaining!
