It compiles now with gcc 6.1 when boost and boost-libs are installed manually from staging repo:

Pending an upstream update, this will not build with GCC 6 which has just hit repos. You need to downgrade to 5.3.0 or earlier for now.

Alternatively I have a repo up at Bear in mind that the repo is 64bit only and is signed with PGP key 30E698EA.

You may want to include that commit as a patch in this package, at least until v2.28 is out.

Upstream worked quick - commit 519cb78 fixes this. Use lgogdownloader-git for now.

I was able to build and run with jsoncpp 1.6.5 but not 1.7.1, which is the latest in the repos.

Pending an upstream update I've updated the PKGBUILD to require 1.6.5 or lower.

jsoncpp updated recently, I'm gonna guess it broke compatibility.

Fails to work:
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'Json::RuntimeError'
what(): ConstIterator to Iterator should never be allowed. line 1: 2035 Aborted (core dumped) lgogdownloader --save-serials --platform l+w --download

(returns 134)

Also fails to build:

Must be some recent change.

You may want to bump up the pkgrel to force recompilation against boost 1.59.0.
Otherwise, the following error happens and there is no indication of needing to rebuild lgogdownloader:

lgogdownloader: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

boost should probably be in makedepends, boost-libs in depends.

In addition to the previous comment: You can also use the commit as patch directly (just add '.patch' to it's url).
Example, untested:


prepare() {
cd $srcdir/$pkgname-$pkgver
patch -Np1 ../jsonpp-include.patch
