@Alad: it depends on number of parallel make jobs as set in MAKEFLAGS. 4 should be fine for 8GB of RAM (unless you run some other memory hungry app), with 8 you need more than 10GB.

How much RAM does this need to compile? At 8 GB, I ran out of swap and OOM killed the compiler process.

I updated to the rc2. Note that pcl_sim_viewer still crashes (cf.

Ah ok, sorry I have misunderstood. I'll try as soon as I can... thank you! :)

yes, but PKGBUILD has also other lines and some of them is causing the crashing, by removing all cmake lines and keeping just these will create build that doesn't crash and works with vtk7

@doug: it seems to me that PKGBUILD already has those lines. Also, just to be clear, the problem was not that it was not compiling, it was; it was giving me the same problem reported by @horse.
ATM I've compiled against VTK6 following directions given by @bchretien and everything seems to be working fine.

@SMOG: after I edited this PKGBUILD that it uses default cmake config like this

cmake .. \

then it works with vtk7

@SMOG: you can check how I did that for the previous pcl-qt5 package (commit here:, adapt it accordingly).

@doug: I'm facing your exact problem... how exactly have you fixed it?
I've tried compiling this having only vtk6 (from AUR) on my system but it still doesn't work... I've just changed the dependency from vtk to vtk6.
Do I have to add any other flag?

Thank you for your help.

Hi, I had asked this in the past and got no response. I always get:

fitting_curve_2d_pdm.h: No such file or directory

and thus I have to set:


Can this be address? It breaks my builds.
