Thanks, Drenn. I've pushed an updated PKGBUILD with the changes you suggested.

It looks like this compiles a dev build. The following change to line 26 should enable release build optimizations:

yaml-cpp51 package uploaded, and PKGBUILD updated to make sure it build and links against the working library.

WorMzy commented on 2015-04-21 00:11

Can confirm this, and the workaround.

I'll see if I can find time to cobble together and upload a yaml-cpp51 package tomorrow (later today here).

Looks like latest yaml-cpp from official repos isn't playing nice with openxcom.
If you are having problems with "failed to load Ruleset" error, downgrade yaml-cpp to 0.5.1 and compile again.

Please report it to upstream so it can get fixed. :)

I had to add --disable-werror to the configure line to get this to build due to an unused variable.

Hi, Please fix your PKGBUILD to comply with pacman/makepkg 4.1 VCS standards [1]. I have uploaded a compliant PKGBUILD here [2], which you can feel free to use.

If you have lost interest in maintaining this package, I would be more than happy to take over maintaining it.

I modified the PKGBUILD to use the installation prefix "/usr" instead of "/usr/local", since I much prefer that only manually installed files go in "/usr/local".

While I was at it I made some other slight improvements for myself: cp should be faster than git for a straightforward copy, and the overall README.txt was clobbering the data/README.txt which is about the game assets (the path also had to be fixed for the /usr/local -> /usr change).

In case you're interested in incorporating any of these changes, I've included a patch:

This package also has a build-time dependency on boost, it uses at least "boost/shared_ptr.hpp". I'm not sure, but I don't think it has a run-time dependency on boost-libs, since "readelf -d" doesn't show it linking to any.
