@adsun: see my comment below, it's part of multilib-devel and therefore and implicit dependency.

adsun commented on 2018-02-13 22:07

lib32-gcc-libs is a depends; without lib32-gcc-libs, lib32-ncurses5-compat-libs fails to build.

@sgar: lib32-gcc-libs is part of multilib-devel, which is the counterpart of base-devel but for building lib32 packages (see, meaning it is an implicit makedepend for all lib32 packages. I have to admit though that multilib-devel is not mentioned in, it probably should.

I wonder if its a good idea to put lib32-gcc-libs as a makedend.. I would have thought that it was in the dependency chain but seems is also just a makedep for lib32-glibc and if it is already installed it will not be pulled and the build will fail with "configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables"...

@artbody: is that a question? Is there a problem with the package as it is now?

artbody commented on 2017-11-30 16:00

package is also needed by Quartus ModelSim (Altera)
newest release is published Nov 2017

@yorickr: how strange, it's now 404 for me as well... The lib32-ncurses package has been flagged out-of-date for 3 months now, so I guess I'll just ignore it and use the same release as the ncurses package.

@Corax a friend of mine tested the same page and it showed up for him as well, though I got a 404 through my browser and curl. Perhaps this has to do with the servers CDN?

@yorickr: this is really weird, this very page lists ncurses-6.0-20170527.tgz for me... I don't think using another (close) version will cause you any major trouble though.

yorickr commented on 2017-11-03 16:46

The mirror used by lib32-ncurses ( appears to not have version 20170527 available. I'm getting errors trying to install this package (as the mirror used by this package also doesn't have that version available).

I've changed _pkgver locally to 6.0-20170603 which makes it install without issue but I'm uncertain if there are any major changes between these two versions.
