@MarcinWieczorek to be fair it was a cheap and easy fix.

I submitted a pull request a while back which has just been merged upstream. The project should build fine now.

@shizcow checksums exist for a reason. Also, you could submit the patch upstream.

I also got it to build with "-fcommon". For an easy fix:

Add to sources:

Add an extra 'SKIP' to sha256sums

After cd "$srcdir/light" in build(), add: git apply --stat ../light-build.patch

I managed to build it today 26.05.20 using the "-fcommon" cflag. At least it's a workaround until the package is fixed.

@pamrg upstream issue:

pamrg commented on 2020-05-19 02:09 (UTC)

It fails building with gcc v10 ("multiple definition of light_loglevel" etc). The light package from pacman works.

Would love to take ownership of this package so that I can make sure that it is kept updated and working. /Author

Could you add --with-udev to avoid setuid binaries? That's how the upstream PKGBUILD does -

Is the maintainer AWOL? The 'light-git' package does not build, but 'light' does.

I attempted @shanewstone 's patch in yay with --editmenu and found it unsuccessful. However, using an alternate AUR manager was successful - just in case anyone else was running into that too.
