You're right, seems like Boost's entire repository is gone:

I've updated the source URL, thanks! I'll see what the regular Boost PKGBUILD does and update this accordingly later if they use some other mirror (although this seems to be Boost's official mirror now).

The boost tar.bz2 download link seems to be broken. Replacing it with the one from this page worked for me:

Thanks Robert,

yabridge-bin seems to work. At least it installs!

robbert-vdh commented on 2021-03-16 19:09

I'm not really sure what the issue would be, but since this is more or less the same PKGBUILD used for building Arch's regular Boost packages it should 'just work'. yabridge is the only thing on the AUR that uses these multilib Boost libraries at the moment (before I adopted the package it hadn't been updated in over three years), but I spoke with an Arch maintainer a few days ago and maybe he'll look into packaging yabridge (and thus also lib32-boost-libs) in the cummunity repos at some point in the future. Until then you could try using the yabridge-bin package instead which uses the statically compiled binaries from GitHub.

Ah right, my bad---my first few attempts were all through yay (I'm actually trying to build yabridge), but after the repeating errors I tried to do a clean build from the AUR's PKGBUILD in a new directory. It failed with the same error, though.

Basically I did what you suggested, which I have just now tried as well just to be on the safe side, but it fails as well with the usual error.

You mentioned ~/.cache/yay/lib32-boost-libs, which made me assume that you were trying to run something like yay -S lib32-boost-libs. If removing that directory, doing a fresh clone of (or doing the same thing through git clean), and running makepkg -sic in the newly cloned repository doesn't work, then there might be something else wrong. This PKGBUILD is almost identical to the one for the regular boost/boost-libs packages which haven't been updated since December, so I sadly can't really help you with this issue if doing a clean build doesn't help.

rm -rf ~/.cache/yay/lib32-boost-libs
git clone ~/.cache/yay/lib32-boost-libs
cd ~/.cache/yay/lib32-boost-libs
makepkg -sic

I am not sure what you mean by "clearing the src and pkg directories". I'm making/installing the package the usual way, with makepkg -si in from a freshly downloaded snapshot. I tried clearing pacman's cache to be on the safe side, but nothing changed.

robbert-vdh commented on 2021-03-16 17:19

Builds fine here. Have you tried clearing the pkg and src directories and trying again?

This package no longer builds on my system, due to this error:

ERROR: rule "boost-install.boost-install" unknown in module "Jamfile</home/stefano/.cache/yay/lib32-boost-libs/src/boost_1_75_0>".

hi there freso... could you please update this package to the last version? It's outdated and some systems of mine require the latest version.
