yes I agree, not sure why I missed that last update. I updated this package to use ruby from extra.

Indeed it looks like it builds and works against ruby 2.4 which is packaged in extra.

I just successfully built klayout against ruby 2.4 in [extra]. If ruby 2.3 is not explicitly required, you might consider removing it as a dependency, and depend on and build against 2.4 instead.

Thanks for the info rugaliz. I updated the package to 0.24.9 and changed the dependency on ruby to ruby2.3 (AUR). You are right on qt, this package already lists qt4 as a dependency for that reason.

I have had trouble building the latest (0.24.9) package as well as this one.
With 0.24.8 i get an error due to the ruby version (i guess it expected something from version 2.3 [current version 2.4]) and with the new version i get errors due to the qt version (i found out that the build expects qt4 with an old deprecated function "QInputContext").

Thanks sasvari and Fweeb. I've bumped klayout to use the latest ruby. I'll see what I can do about Python bindings.

Fweeb commented on 2016-09-05 16:00

It appears that klayout will now compile against Ruby 2.3 (ruby in the main repo) without problems. Build opts need to be updated thusly:

build_opt="-qt /usr -qtinc /usr/include/qt4 -qtbin /usr/lib/qt4/bin -bin $pkgdir/usr/bin -rblib /usr/lib/ -rbinc /usr/include/ruby-2.3.0/"

Also depends should be depends=('qt4' 'ruby')

And, yes, the Python bindings would be a nice thing to add.

The package is not really out of date but has an unavailable dependency with ruby2.1.

Thanks for the notification sasvari, I changed the download domain as you suggested
