A solution to a Qbittorrent bug I was having problems with:
If your log is flooded with "Network configuration has changed" messages, this is a known bug in qBittorrent:
... caused by a bug in Qt5:
This problem can be remedied by building with Qt4. First make sure you have Qt4 installed ;-) then edit the PKGBUILD before building, and change line 34 (omitting quotation marks) from:
" ./configure --prefix=/usr"
" ./configure --prefix=/usr --with-qt4"

Advice for beginners: To automatically update the git packages on your system, run yaourt with the "--devel" flag. If you want to skip all the prompts asking you to manually approve each step, you can also add the "--noconfirm" flag, for example:

yaourt -Syua --devel --noconfirm

For future notice the comments are the wrong place to leave out-of-date notifications. That is why a dedicated out-of-date flag exists.

As desaparecido said, this is a git package, so merely being out of date is not an excuse to flag it.
Note that some maintainers will bump the pkgver as a courtesy notification that a new upstream release is available... however this is at the maintainer's discretion.

@ilyamodder when you have a git package, to update, you only need to rebuilt it (except if changes in upstream force to change PKGBUILD). I successfully build with this commit:


so 3.3.5 like you say.

Please update, there's an 3.3.5.

Well, I *thought* the v3_3_x branch was "stable" development vs. alpha, but just looking at the history (there is none, it is stuck at the tag) I am no longer sure that is what it is for.

What about having this package updated to QT5, but otherwise keep on using the "stable" branch approach and renaming 'qbittorrent-qt5-git' to 'qbittorrent-unstable-git' keeping updates from the master branch?

@uncle Yes, currently it gives the alpha version, but not just alphas, betas and RCs as well. So I don't think naming it *-alpha would be the best way as it won't be consistent.

I think I answered to myself: It uses other branches than master to get the latest "stable" version.

I don't know how I feel about that, I like to have the latest versions of my apps even if they're a little unstable (with no critical issues), I mean, that's one of the reasons why I switched to Arch :P

I can still build my own version, so no worries.

@AlfredoRamos building from master branch gives you the alpha version (for example: 3.4.0), whereas using branch v3_3_x will give you the development version (for example: 3.3.1) of the most recent release, which is more stable than an alpha release. An idea that occurs to me would be for you to change the name of your package to something like "qbittorrent-alpha-git".

AlfredoRamos commented on 2015-12-21 22:23

@carstene1ns Sure, but I have a question: why you're using other branch than master? I've been using the master branch in the qbittorrent-qt5-git package since I adopted (back in AUR3) and I haven't had any critical issue.

In any case, can you keep using the get_version.pri[1] file and (at least something similar) in the pkgver()[2] function?

I like to know which version I'm using, the version we get with git describe and the one in the qBittorrent/version.pri are different, that small file I made gets the actual version.
