@bionade24: Not in particular; that value was inherited from the original version of the PKGBUILD and I was, again, waiting for 1.50 to see if it could be updated to Python 3. However, I've just tested building 1.42 with Python 3 and it seems fine, so I've updated the PKGBUILD. Thanks!

@wbthomason: Any reasons for staying on python2? Would be nice if you could change it, too.

@acxz: Sure, I'm ok with that.

Sorry for feeling lazy, but I believe the replaces in the ompl package is enough. Users of ros-melodic-ompl (if there were any, which I doubt since that package itself was broken) will now automatically be on the working version of ompl with your change. If you really feel strong about me not adding the replaces, then I will disown ompl-git once someone makes an orphan request.

@bionade24: Done, as requested.

I'd request that either you or @acxz (as the members of the ros-melodic-arch organization on GitHub) add


to the ros-melodic-ompl PKGBUILD.

@acxz: It would probably make sense to add this to the PKGBUILD for ompl-git too, do you mind?

Please let me know if you run into any other issues! I'm still hopeful that 1.50 will be released "soon"; I'll update this and remove the patch when it is.

@wbthoason: Please patch, this is really annoying for all ROS moveit users. Patch is shown here:
Please add this to your PKGBUILD, too:

In the meanwhile I have created the ompl-git package: This does have the fix for the latest boost and builds fine on Arch.

wbthomason commented on 2019-11-07 20:36

The current release of OMPL (1.4.2) is incompatible with the version of Boost Arch now ships (1.71.0). That means that this package will not build if Boost is fully updated on your system.

The maintainers say that a new release fixing this bug (and others) should be out "soon" ( Unless users prefer that I update the PKGBUILD with a workaround to build 1.4.2 against Boost 1.71.0 (which can be done), I plan to wait for this release to update the PKGBUILD. I will also switch the package source from BitBucket to Github at this time, as the OMPL project has moved its active development to Github.

If you use this package and would prefer a patch before the 1.5.0 release, please comment saying so!

I got an error when compiling this. Since this was in demos/PlannerData.cpp disabling compilation of the demos helped: -DOMPL_BUILD_DEMOS=OFF

@acxz: Great, sounds good. I'm working on a deadline right now, but I can also spend some time trying to get py++ working after that (6/5 or so).
