Sorry, I forgot to update my AUR account's email address. Yeah, I haven't used this in many years, and I no longer had the job that I needed to use Sametime/meanwhile for. I'm disowning the package.

@MarsSeed those are all very good points but consider this, what if someone has no alternative but to use proprietary software to perform a task, or to validate the behavior of an open-source alternative against a proprietary one. Sometimes, it's not in a user's hand to build every piece of code that's breaking.

Also, I merely asked if this is still being maintained and did not ask the owner to update it. I needed some insight, a nudge into the right direction, and got it. Isn't that the very purpose of the comments?

If some people say they require this software component from 2010, why is there nothing in AUR that depends on it?

Anyone who need this, can't you use/rebuild your dependent software with the newer GNOME GIO library?

Better yet, can't you rebuild your software for 64-bit? Then at least you wouldn't need this 32-bit library.

I don't see any "tracker" specific flags in .configure file of smbclient v4.14.7 Anyway, I'm taking this problem there.

I see. If the dependency is in lib32-smbclient, you have to deal with the issue in there. As a former maintainer of lib32-smbclient, my suggestion is to check if there is a flag (there are plenty) for disabling the tracker dependency and then suggest to the maintainer/ adopt & fix it yourself.

A fix in there will benefit for sure others that might need this package.

you are correct. It doesn't exist. Also, it appears to be an indirect dependency. I seem to have lost the logs but the error probably appeared while trying to compile lib32-smbclient. I'll confirm it in some time.

/usr/bin/ld: skipping incompatible /usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/11.1.0/../../../

Please verify if you have the lib32 version of the package that provides this soname. Should be lib32-tracker or something (not sure if it even exists).

error: Let me try to tinker with PKGBUILD with updated dependencies. As said by @Lertets, anyone using CCS Uniflash will definitely need this because either the latest Uniflash seems to be trash or I'm illiterate with its usage.

@thisisprateek: Last update from 2015, deprecated software, but still has a maintainer. If you don't need this software, I recommend uninstalling and not using it. If a software you use depends on it, consider changing that software to another implementation more up-to-date with GNOME software and libaries.

Aside the above options, consider sharing the output with the error you are getting via a pastebin service. Also consider trying to fix the PKGBUILD to propose in here.

Is this still being maintained? The build is failing for me.
