Make sure you have the multilib-devel group installed before reporting issues while building the package. I will not add it as a makedepends because it is not a makedepends for lib32-ncurses5 either. See

If anyone is still having trouble getting used to PGP signing, make sure to add the key mentioned in the PKGBUILD:
$ gpg --keyserver --recv-keys 702353E0F7E48EDB

Hi. I'm a newbie on Linux. I open a terminal and run the sentence pedro.cordeiro commented. The answer of the terminal is : gpg: keyserver receive failed: Permission denied

What can I do? Thanks in advance!

@Corax That got'r done, alright. Thanks. It was from webkitgtk2 and a prebuilt package for that via the Chinese community (my fiance and I could not get it to build and it would also have taken several hours had it even successfully done so).

to problems with PGP , just run this in : gpg --keyserver "" --recv-keys "702353E0F7E48EDB" on terminal

@Lannakin: that's an error occurring during installation, isn't it? Looks like you have added an additional pacman repository providing this package, and there is some signature issue. Either way, that has nothing to do with the package itself. Could you build it yourself instead?

EDIT: this package is definitely in the archlinuxcn repo, have a look here (regarding the keyring in particular):

I get the following error:

Error: lib32-ncurses5-compat-libs: signature from "lilac (build machine) <>" is unknown trust

I attempted the pinned fix and updating the keyring as well, although I do not remember why I did the latter; I did not successfully resolve my error.

a build problem how to fix. you have to run pacman -S multilib-devel. after can install lib32-ncurse-compat-libs

Corax commented on 2018-06-05 20:33

@calzonealamuerte: if you remove these two lines, you end up with ncurses5-compat-libs (i.e. the 64-bit binaries) in /usr/lib32, clearly not what you want. I still cannot repro the error, even in a chroot, so if no-one gives me some kind of trace (from config.log) I cannot do anything.

This package is still not installable. I have the same problem @TiTan4T had. I "fixxed" it by removed the following two lines from the PKGBUILD: export CC="gcc -m32" export CXX="g++ -m32"

With this lines removed, i didnt got the "configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables" message anymore.

@yar: just tried that and it works without issue. I did only the strict minimum:

$ mkdir chroot

$ mkarchroot chroot/root base-devel

[edit pacman.conf]

$ arch-nspawn chroot/root pacman -S multilib-devel

$ makechrootpkg -r chroot

yar commented on 2018-04-01 21:58

@Corax try building with makechrootpkg and see for yourself
