Yup, already noticed my builds failing. Just bumped the makedeps, along with libimobiledevice-git. Thanks.

distutils package is removed in python version 3.12, as it was already was deprecated in Python 3.10 by PEP 632 “Deprecate distutils module”, so building is faling

checking for a version of Python >= '2.1.0'... yes
checking for the distutils Python package... no
configure: error: cannot import Python module "distutils".
Please check your Python installation. The error was:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'distutils'
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
 -> error making: libplist-git-exit status 4

For those experiencing issues with KDE plasma, I was able to work around that problem by navigating to /usr/lib and running ln -rs to just point plasma to the existing .3 libplist when it looks for the .4. No idea if that's a terrible idea or not, but it did let me log in. Might require manual intervention to undo this workaround later.

Yup, this is expected and not a problem of this package. libplist has had a soname bump recently, which means all dependents need to be rebuilt against the new library.

@Zame I have the same problem, but it is not a problem with this package, libplist package is now in staging and even that has the same problem, so I guess KDE plasma applications should be updated to compatible with libplist 2.3 .

Last update breaks my Kde plasma

This package is incompatible with "ccache" makepkg option at the moment. To prevent any ccache usage, PKGBUILD needs a string:

@0x9fff00 Oof, indeed.
