All my packages are managed at GitHub where you can also contribute directly:
Patches for this package are managed at:

There also exist a binary repository:

If you would like to contribute, here is a list of known bugs and things needing improvement:
- Currently the build system tries to link against the already installed version of the bootstrap library (if present) and not the new one. This leads to compile errors. Hence the package must be built in a clean chroot or at least the previous version must be uninstalled before rebuilding.
- The linker library search paths for applications which need to be build for the host architecture aren't set correctly. Hence those paths are currently set manually (see comment in mingw-w64-qt5-declarative for example).
- Compiling QtAV using the ANGLE version doesn't work. I don't know whether other applications/libs using OpenGL via Qt are also affected but it is very likely.

Also note the comments about the different variants inside the PKGBUILD itself.

Qt 5.9.0 is there :-)
See my previous comment about openssl. Additionally, this is using pcre2 now. The location module now always needs ANGLE at build time (for some plugin), otherwise the build fails. Since problems of patch 0023-Allow-usage-of-static-version-with-CMake.patch still haven't been resolved yet you might want to build without it if you don't need to use the static version with CMake.

Users of my binary repo must execute the following commands after upgrading all Qt modules to be able to use the static version with CMake:
find /usr/{i686,x86_64}-w64-mingw32/lib/cmake -iname 'StaticQt5*Config.cmake' -exec sed -i 's/Qt5::\(.*\)Private/StaticQt5::\1Private/g' {} \;
find /usr/{i686,x86_64}-w64-mingw32/lib -iname 'Qt5*.static.prl' -exec sed -i 's/-lpcre16/-lversion -lpcre2-16/g' {} \;
find /usr/{i686,x86_64}-w64-mingw32/lib/qt/mkspecs/mingw-w64-g++ -iname '*.conf' -exec sed -i 's/-lpcre16/-lversion -lpcre2-16/g' {} \;
(I just don't want to keep my server busy for hours with rebuilding if executing 3 commands is sufficient.)

@xantares As far as I'm concerned there is no such patch. The regular qt5-base still uses the old openssl. I follow this approach for Qt 5.9.0 and it seems to work fine. Hence I already provide mingw-w64-openssl-1.0 which doesn't conflict with mingw-w64-openssl. So the error should be gone when I push 5.9 here. Till then, don't update to openssl to 1.1. Or use the packages for 5.9 which are already available in my PKGBUILDs repo.

xantares commented on 2017-06-07 06:35

it doesnt build because of openssl>= 1.1, is there a similar patch for what's available for qt4 ?

Martchus commented on 2017-05-01 22:18

Note that this is likely not compatible with the latest version of mingw-w64-openssl so I wouldn't recommend updating it so far. Maybe a package mingw-w64-openssl-1.0 like the regular openssl-1.0 is required.

Current version is on 'update/qt5' branch of my PKGBUILDs repository:

I haven't pushed it yet because there are still some outstanding problems with the static variant. One is that dependencies are not correctly written in prl files. However, those files are used by the CMake modules which hence not work correctly (specifically the dependency cycle between freetype2 and harfbuzz is messed). Not sure how to fix this. Also building qt5-tools failed last time I tried to build it due to missing dependencies required by Qt DBus. This should be fixed now, but I'll have to verify first.

Updating this to 5.8.0 will take some time. Patches are rebased, however the new config system doesn't allow to configure Qt in the same way as it was possible in previous versions (can not use iconv and pkg-config for instance).

I have cleared ~/.cache/pacaur completely and after that all compiled fine!

Martchus commented on 2016-12-31 14:01

@dviktor Seems like something is completely messed in your build. Have you tried to discard it completely and rebuild from the scratch (preferably in clean chroot, at you have to uninstall previous version of the package)?

It would be also helpful to have English error messages. I assume the header file can not be found? Actually it is quite strange that those header files are included when building the Windows version.

Still can not update to the 5.7.1... A lot of compile errors (including missing headers pulseaudio.h and linker issues), I'll try to post some of them later...
