@erickwill Please see I will try to address this later today when I get home.

Anyone facing problems while building package-query now days? I got this while trying:

/usr/bin/ld: alpm-query.o: in function `filter':
alpm-query.c:(.text+0x837): undefined reference to `alpm_sync_newversion'
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
make[2]: *** [Makefile:405: package-query] Error 1

Also, when trying to use yaourt I got something related to 'alpm'..

package-query: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I followed damonh's solution, followed by a "make uninstall" into pkg-config-0.29.2 . Worked fine. Hope it resurected the kitten.

damonh, this package is already in repos: Additionally, every time you issue a 'make install', God kills a kitten, you know.

package-query is not using python.

I had installed Anaconda and its version of Python was interfering with this. So I had to disable it as follows: $ vim ~/.bashrc Comment out the following:

export PATH="/home/moose/anaconda3/bin:$PATH"

Then, reboot.

I solve the issue like this:

$ sudo pacman -Rn yaourt package-query

$ sudo pacman -S fakeroot

$ curl -o pkgconfig.tgz

$ tar -zxf pkgconfig.tgz

$ cd pkg-config-0.29.2

$ ./configure --with-internal-glib && make install

$ git clone

$ cd package-query

$ makepkg -si

$ sudo pacman -S yaourt

...and solved! ;-)

I get the same error 'package-query: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory' when I run: yaourt -Syua I tried to follow your advice cloning de git repo and also downloading the tar.gz but I get the following error: configure: error: The pkg-config script could not be found or is too old. Make sure it is in your PATH or set the PKG_CONFIG environment variable to the full path to pkg-config.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables alpm_CFLAGS and alpm_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config. See the pkg-config man page for more details.

To get pkg-config, see <>. See `config.log' for more details

What can I do to fix it? Thank you in advance.

@f2404 Yes, it is the same as when I look at View PKGBUILD..
