Glm is broken, you can downgrade it. For more info look at the kicad developee list for glm.

Thanks - i noticed that lots of things had broken - maybe I'd done the partial-update that everyone says don't do on arch? Not sure! Anyway as I could no longer update packages (gpg broken) due to the same readline problem (I had .so.8 installed but some packages wanted .so.7) - i ended up creating a symlink (ln -s ... ) and all fixed. Phew.

I'm just finding my feet with Arch - should I be making sure everything is up to date before using the AUR? I had about 500mb of updates to download and as my internets off at home [connected via 4g mobile at the moment], i've been putting them off for a week or so... but couldn't live without kicad, so left the updates outstanding and just did a "yay kicad-git"... maybe thats where i went wrong :D

@ukmattbrock, I wonder if your system is up to date, it seems that the ngspice packages was recently rebuilt because an update to readline.

I've just tried building this on a clean install and it almost got there, but ended with...

Is anyone else suffering from this?

Thanks in advance

What environment variable?

GPereira commented on 2019-01-12 19:50

I had to manually change an environment variable to compile. Of course it makes sense. I will compile this multiple times to update my installation. Meanwhile I see that you changed it, it's perfect. Thanks!

There are no reason to force the build with clang if you are following the cmake message about GLM from kicad.

GPereira commented on 2019-01-12 13:32

You shouldn't remove the glm check. kicad developers did that for a reason, probably it doesn't compile yet or it introduces bugs. You should instead compile with clang as recommended by kicad

I can do that, add me as a co-mantainer

nickoe commented on 2019-01-11 20:52

@GPereia, but you still would need to patch out the glm check

GPereira commented on 2019-01-11 19:39

Here you have a new pkgbuild that uses python 3
