just a friendly reminder even though this installs packages of jdk < 12 it will still attempt to use the default one which may be set to 12 like in my case.

You need to use sudo archlinux-java status and sudo archlinux-java set java-11-openjdk to figure out what you have and set something lower than 12 as default before attempting to install.

I had the following installed:

java-environment-common 2-2
java-runtime-common 2-2
jdk7-openjdk 7.u131_2.6.9-1
jre7-openjdk 7.u131_2.6.9-1
jre7-openjdk-headless 7.u131_2.6.9-1
jre8-openjdk 8.u121-1
jre8-openjdk-headless 8.u121-1

Thanks for including the patch! That was damn fast.

I have now updated this package with the upstream patch.

As far as jdk8-openjdk goes for building, did you have another version installed, and if so, what was it?

I have attempted to force jdk8 or later with java-environment>=8, so jdk8-openjdk should be installed for the build phase.

Apparently this doesn't compile with GCC 7. This has been fixed upstream in their develop branch. Consider adding this patch:

Relevant bug report:

jdk8-openjdk was not pulled in as a hard dep, so I got the same Cmake errors as Aurelio until I installed the package manually.

I have just updated this package to version 0.5.1.

There was NOT a bump to the version in the MultiMC repository even though there was a release.

The version number is under application/CMakeLists.txt for those who are wondering.

That has solved it. Thanks muchly, vorpalblade.

I think I've fixed it now.
I don't know why it didn't happen to me when I was testing. Maybe there was a leftover library or something?

It should work now though.

This doesn't seem to want to run for me since the 0.5.0 update:

Make sure you have a working java-jdk.
You can check the status with:
$ archlinux-java status

And to change it:
$ archlinux-java set java-8-jdk

I just made a "new" install of Arch Linux by doing

# pacstrap $(pwd) base base-devel
# arch-chroot $(pwd)
## set up username/password here
# systemd-nspawn -bD $(pwd)

$ curl -O $(yaourt_url)
$ curl -O $(package-query_url)

# Make the packages with makepkg -si...

$ yaourt -Syua multimc5

It did not error out for me.

Do you have base-devel installed?
