Very sorry for the delay @aularon

I have the fixed 0.9.8 PKGBUILD, I only have to push it later today.

It needs `cmake` as a dependency.

Thank you for packaging this.

@jponin Are running a 32-bit system? I had the same problem and digging further I found this:

Removing -DHIGH_BIT_DEPTH=ON in the Makefile resulted in a successful build for me.

I couldn't build version 9.7 because of what seems to me like a Macro syntax bug. The two patches are just fixing a missing spaces.

afontenot commented on 2016-06-02 07:20

Can you explain what the two new patches are supposed to do please? Thanks

I resync'd .SRCINFO, both pkgrel now set to 2, thanks.

dustball commented on 2016-02-03 14:14

Fails to build+install (separately it works), since the .SRCINFO pkgrel doesn't match the PKGBUILD pkgrel. Just a heads up.

Seems to work. Thanks for the quick response.

jponin commented on 2015-12-26 18:17


I pushed your patch, tell me if it works.

Could you please add -fPIC to the CFLAGS of the static library? Otherwise one can't use it for an imlib2 loader plugin.

Something like this:
