This package doesn't build with ffmpeg5. The PKGBUILD needs a few tweaks in order to use ffmpeg4.4.

Besides replacing ffmpeg with ffmpeg4.4 in the dependencies, I had to change build() to this:

build() {
    cmake -B build -S "${pkgname%-git}" \
        -DNG_INSTALL_DIR_LIB=lib/${pkgname%-git} \
        -DNG_INSTALL_DIR_INCLUDE=include/${pkgname%-git} \
        -DUSE_JPEG=ON \
        -DFFMPEG_INCLUDE_DIR=/usr/include/ffmpeg4.4 \
        -DUSE_MPEG=ON \
        -DMETIS_DIR=/usr \
        -DUSE_OCC=ON \

   cmake --build build

@ftschindler: Missing dependency libxi

I updated the pkgver to match the packaging guidelines more closely (not to update the version number). However, as I understand the purpose of VCS packages the pkgver is updated on your local build. I can hardly push a new package each time a commit is added to netgen (each commit would change the pkgver). If you are looking for a netgen package with release versioning, one would have to create a netgen package which tracks the release (as opposed to this netgen-git package, which tracks the current development version). Please enlighten me if I am wrong ...

@ftschindler do you mind updating the name of this package ? 6.2.2008 is the latest release

I updated the pkgver, but from what I understand this is updated on each local build (since this is a -git package) so no need to do this on my end...

Looks like the netgen folks changed their version scheme:

Thx for reporting. I update the URL to the github one.

I had to edit the PKGBUILD because the source download always timed out. In my case the problem was solved by changing the SourceForge git URL ( to the Github URL of the netgen project (

So instead of: source=("${pkgname%-git}::git+") the source line reads now: source=("${pkgname%-git}::git+")
