openmw-git has been found to require a sizable amount of temporary space during building.

The available amount depends on system specifics so is different for all systems. In case build fails with "no space left on device" you may be bitten by this.

See for details and possible solutions.

Please refrain from flagging the git version as out date when a new release comes out. The git aur packages update their version on install time based on the tags of the git repo.

Keep in mind that this is a VCS package and it is meant to be in line with the latest master which might not always work. It is not meant to follow the release pattern in any particularly smart way and assumes that upstream maintains their tags consistently.

For the newest release, the correct page is

Updated, package now uses latest ffmpeg (currently 5.0.1) again.

To get the package to build in a devtools clean chroot I had to disable lto.

It's unclear if this is an issue on my system or not.

In case you want an lto enabled build : comment the line with options=(!lto) in the PKGBUILD

@txtsd I don't know you

txtsd commented on 2022-06-15 19:09 (UTC)

Can I have co-maintainer too? I'd like to help out.

bwrsandman commented on 2022-06-15 15:26 (UTC)

@Lone_Wolf I made you co-maintainer because I can't quickly resolve the ffmpeg issue for a while now.

Lone_Wolf commented on 2022-06-15 11:24 (UTC)

@emc : multiview is interesting and could improve VR, but is only present in a separate fork for now. has some more info about it.

Lone_Wolf commented on 2022-06-15 11:18 (UTC)

The workaround to force ffmpeg 4.4 is no longer needed.

Please remove it and switch dependency to latest ffmpeg .

@bwrsandman I see, thank you.

@Beelzebielsk The number of cores used for an AUR package is up to your own configuration in makepkg.conf.

Can you change the make command to make $(nproc)? It will build a lot faster.

emc commented on 2022-04-26 09:56 (UTC) (edited on 2022-04-26 10:34 (UTC) by emc)

Lone_Wolf yes, order was: openscenegraph-openmw-git, openmw-git and openmw-git pull openscenegraph and openscenegraph-openmw-git was removed....

EDIT: I remove: openscenegraph and openmw-git, install openscenegraph-openmw-git and then openmw-git. Look it is fine now. Sorry for problems...

Lone_Wolf commented on 2022-04-25 19:29 (UTC)

emc, you did (re-)build openmw-git after installing openscenegraph-openmw-git ?

emc commented on 2022-04-25 13:54 (UTC)

ok but openmw-git removed openscenegraph-openmw-git and pull openscenegraph.

How to use openscenegraph-openmw-git instead of openscenegraph? I'm a bit new in Arch...

bwrsandman commented on 2022-04-19 15:42 (UTC)

I've added yaml-cpp. I won't add icu since it's a dependency of boost-libs which is already in the list.

Lone_Wolf commented on 2022-04-19 14:51 (UTC)

In icu & yaml-cpp were added as requirements in CMakeLists.txt

(icu has been used by opemw for a long time, but was not added to CMakeLists by openmw devs until now))

bwrsandman, please add both to depends= in PKGBUILD

jotoho commented on 2022-04-04 16:18 (UTC)

the issue has been resolved. thanks for updating, @bwrsandman

bwrsandman commented on 2022-04-04 16:03 (UTC)

Updated. Let me know if it works.

jotoho commented on 2022-04-03 14:47 (UTC) (edited on 2022-04-03 14:48 (UTC) by jotoho)

This package is sadly still broken. Applying Lone_Wolf's workaround is required to create a working build.

Lone_Wolf commented on 2022-02-18 13:27 (UTC)

game gets stuck on menu screen when build against ffmpeg 5.

See for a workaround .

Please update the PKGBUILD.

bwrsandman commented on 2022-01-31 00:58 (UTC)

Fixed the broken version number and package now uses openmw's navigation

jotoho commented on 2022-01-31 00:27 (UTC)

My AUR helper (yay) has been rebuilding this package every time I did a system update for the last days.

This is because the package is assigning itself a version like stable.r1784.g5b641a61d-1 when building but the AUR says that the newest version is supposed to be 0.46.0.r2803.gcd9fb2ada-1.

This incompatiblity in the naming schemes probably makes yay think that this package is always out of date because even major version 0 probably ranks higher than the 'stable' string in the real package version.

Lone_Wolf commented on 2022-01-24 10:22 (UTC)

Although recastnavigation hasn't had a release for a long time, an openmw dev has managed to get access to the code, update it and even convinced debian to allow a build from a specfiic git commit.

I created & uploaded and have used it succesfully with my own local openmw git package.

Please consider adding -D OPENMW_USE_SYSTEM_RECASTNAVIGATION=ON \ to the cmake options and add recastnavigation-openmw as dependency .

how about using more jobs than 1 will speed up compilation times a lot

Lone_Wolf commented on 2021-07-12 19:58 (UTC)

since there's a new dependency : luajit .

Please add luajit as dependency .

(sol3 code is included in extern folder in a later commit, no need to add that).

Also, they've recommended we switch to gitlab as the source since github is just a read-only mirror.

EDIT: from psi29a on discord:

gitlab is the 'truth', github is the mirror.
We've trying to deprecate/remove github for awhile now.
So all package maintainers should be using gitlab.
Anyway, git describe only shows annotated tags
it seems that we only had one annotated tag, and that was 0.43
debian doesn't use git describe
it just grabs tags and sorts
I believe that archlinux shouldn't rely on git describe for ground truth of latest release.
btw, how we develop... before we release, we branch from master... so for example, for 0.46 we branched... and continued polishing that branch.
That way we can continue developing on master towards 0.47 while 0.46 matures.
Since git describe only shows tags that can be reached via master...
it shouldn't be showing anything
0.43 is a fluke

txtsd commented on 2021-01-06 08:35 (UTC) (edited on 2021-01-06 08:42 (UTC) by txtsd)

@bwrsandman Use this as the pkgver() so we can finally have the correct git tag.

pkgver() {
  cd "${srcdir}/${pkgname%-git}"
  _tag="$(git describe --tags $(git rev-list --tags --max-count=1) | sed 's/openmw-//')"
  _numcommits="$(git rev-list  `git rev-list --tags --no-walk --max-count=1`..HEAD --count)"
  _hash="$(git rev-parse --short HEAD)"
  printf "%s.%s.g%s" "$_tag" "$_numcommits" "$_hash"

EDIT: You may stick an r before the number of commits to maintain monotonicity per the wiki

Lone_Wolf commented on 2020-12-28 22:41 (UTC)

Since openmw trunk requires bullet built with double precision.

Atm my bullet-multithreaded package is the only one that provides that. I have uploaded a copy of my personal openmw trunk package to .

bwrsandman, please check openmw-mt-git and adjust your pkgbuild . Once that has been done I'll submit a deletion request for openmw-mt-git .

Lone_Wolf commented on 2020-10-20 12:07 (UTC)

Recently openmw master gained support for async physiscs, see for some background info.

To use this you need bullet with multihreaded support. Repo package doesn't provide that.

Use my new aur package and rebuild openmw-git against it.

Lone_Wolf commented on 2020-10-14 21:52 (UTC)

I've sent you my PKGBUILD through email.

bwrsandman commented on 2020-10-13 16:26 (UTC) (edited on 2020-10-13 16:32 (UTC) by bwrsandman)

@Lone_Wolf I am still maintaining the package. If you have improvements to the PKGBUILD that I should be integrating, let me know.

In general this is a very simple package to maintain and requires little logic since most of the packaging logic is done by cmake. The biggest issue I have is that the devs have stopped branching off of release tags since 0.43 which makes it impossible to deduce the correct version automatically.

Lone_Wolf commented on 2020-10-13 10:11 (UTC)

bwrsandman, are you still maintaining / using this ?

I have been using my own PKGBUILD for master a few months now and do play openmw using it.

weedfreak commented on 2019-11-19 14:48 (UTC) (edited on 2019-11-19 15:43 (UTC) by weedfreak)

Fails to build after recent boost update.

Errors like Boost_INCLUDE_DIR used as include directory in directory /tmp/yaourt-tmp-****/aur-openmw-git/src/openmw repeated several dozen times, apparently for every file in the build, and then

-- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!

I tried adding -DBoost_NO_BOOST_CMAKE=ON to the build instructions, this works for some other projects but not openmw.

Rulatir commented on 2018-11-22 17:31 (UTC)

OK, I just rebuilt after hardcoding #branch=openmw-45 (which is what I really wanted, I didn't want the master branch) and the package built as openmw-git- However the 03437b712... commit is indeed the one at the top of the openmw-45 branch as of right now, so I am satisfied with your explanation.

bwrsandman commented on 2018-11-22 17:17 (UTC) (edited on 2018-11-22 17:59 (UTC) by bwrsandman)

TLDR: The package still rebuilds latest master as it is intended to, which is much more up to date than release 0.44. Error is due to the fact that the 0.44 tag was never merged into master and the standard way of determining versions is broken for this version only.

@Rulatir if you're looking for the 0.44 release please refer to the community version [1]

This package (openmw-git) does not guarentee to be inline with the latest release (last updated on June 20th).

It does, however guarantee to be inline with the latest master of the git repo, which as of writing this is the case (4098a7be1dac0f674171864e78ee1ab10a8d24ce Wed Nov 21 20:24:11 2018 +0100).

The reason why building it gives a misleading version number is the command in pkgver(): git describe --always

The way git describe works is by looking for the latest tag on the branch (master), taking that and giving the number of commits since that tag and a shortref.

The reason why this release is showing up as 0.43 right now is that the folks at openmw never merged the 0.44 tag into master.

Now, I could go against the AUR packaging standards[2] and hard code 0.44 in pkgver(), but I think we can agree that this would cause more issues down the line such as when 0.45 is released. Not to mention this sort of package update forces a half hour to multi hour rebuild for all users using aur helpers.

VCS packages, unfortunately, are not an exact science and they require upstream to do things consistently.



Rulatir commented on 2018-11-22 16:53 (UTC) (edited on 2018-11-22 17:24 (UTC) by Rulatir)

@bwrsandman The cold fact is that there is a release 0.44, but this package builds version 0.43 as of today. Automatic selection of the newest release seems to fail in this case, and manual intervention by maintainer is needed after all. I am therefore flagging the package as outdated.

ase1590 commented on 2018-11-19 01:32 (UTC)

Until this bug is resolved, OpenMW will need to require OpenSceneGraph 3.4.1

RedComet commented on 2016-07-19 15:30 (UTC)

I took a look at the /usr/local/lib folder and it sseems that awhile back. I tried to compile ffmpeg from source when I was very new to arch and didn't properly uninstall it. I removed the files from the previous build reinstalled ffmpeg and everything works fine now.

bwrsandman commented on 2016-07-18 11:42 (UTC)

@RedComet I've tested and the build isn't broken per say. It's strange that you're linking with /usr/local/lib/libavcodec.a, I am not sure where that's coming from, you should be linking with /usr/lib/ Could you check with pacman -Qo /usr/local/lib/libavcodec.a and see where it comes from?

@darkbasic This indeed looks like a bug brought on by the update of gcc to 6.1.1. I suggest you bring this up on the openmw support forums [1] or the issue tracker [2]. Make sure to specify the compiler you're using. [1] [2]

Ignore last comment about OpenCS, you just need to open and close the config screen to rebuild the cfg file.

This fails to compile with boost 1.57, you need to downgrade boost to 1.56 to get it to compile. Once it has compiled it does not install OpenCS, only OpenMW.

Thanks for the fix. Just found another problem - openmw.png was recently moved from apps/launcher/resourses/images to files/launcher/images/ in the source tree, so the install line in the PKGBUILD needs to be adjusted accrdingly: install -m644 files/launcher/images/openmw.png "$pkgdir"/usr/share/pixmaps/

Forcing cmake to find qt4. Thanks for pointing that out.

Wouldn't compile for me after the qt5 update, even though qt4-4.8.4 is installed.

"/home/budulay_arch/./resources/mygui/" suggests to me that it's looking in your home folder instead of "/usr/share/games/openmw/resources/mygui/"

When running pkgbuild without any source files present(doing a git clone rather than git pull) compilation failed, complaining that openmw/extern/shiny/Main/Factory.hpp was missing. Turns out openmw/extern/shiny is a submodule in openmw git repo, so it has to be initialized and then updated: else cd "$srcdir" git clone "$_gitroot" "$_gitname" cd "$_gitname" git submodule update --init fi It's also explained here: Also with this commit the openmw/files/plugins.conf* files were removed: So I had to delete this line from PKGBUILD: install -m644 plugins.cfg "$pkgdir"/etc/openmw/ Also openmw.cfg.install was renamed into openmw.cfg a while back, hence I changed this line: install -m644 openmw.cfg "$pkgdir"/etc/openmw/openmw.cfg I'm not sure if it was the correct way to do it, but the game compiles now. When I try to run it, though, I get: ERROR: OGRE EXCEPTION(7:InternalErrorException): /home/budulay_arch/./resources/mygui/ - error whilst opening archive: Unable to read zip file. in ZipArchive::checkZzipError at /build/src/ogre_src_v1-8-0/OgreMain/src/OgreZip.cpp (line 297) Doint a web search on the error message reveals plenty of results, none of them related to openmw, though. At this point I have no clue where to go from here. I am wandering if anyone else got this error, and if they were able to fix it.

Boost 1.50.0 released, deps updated.

Won't compile due to a bug in boost 1.49.0-2 Waiting for 1.50.0 to be available in [Extra] to update PKGBUILD. In the meantime, this post explains how to fix boost. This will let you compile openmw-git.

Please change the pkgbuild to install new files transparency-overrides.cfg and settings-default.cfg (see the main CMakeLists.txt file)

I think, that line 31 in PKGBUILD don't need. Of course, I can be mistaken.

Done! Thanks Igro!
