O.K., now after the update, it worked. Sorry. Thanks for the patience!

I already told you, fix your mirrors. How many times do I have to tell you, Arch Linux moved libtorrent-rasterbar v1.1.4 to [extra] on Friday, 3 days ago?

If your mirror is still telling you that libtorrent-rasterbar is at 1.1.3-4, then it hasn't synced in 3 days and you should probably stop using it.
Also, unless you forgot to include the epoch something weird is going on.

If you still don't believe that I am telling the truth, see the link above for the libtorrent-rasterbar dependency on this page. Heck, I'll even give you an extra copy of the link:
Notice the "Version: 1:1.1.4-1" part, where it clearly says that v1.1.4 is the current version. This strongly implies that v1.1.4 is in fact in the repositories.

I have installed libtorrent-rasterbar 1.1.3-4 and is still not working the compile, same results
libtorrent-rasterbar 1.1.4 is not in the repositories

servimo, I just updated this package last night to remove the patch that would work around that error... because libtorrent-rasterbar 1.1.4 is now in [extra] and renders it unnecessary.

Did you try doing a `pacman -Syu` before just assuming there was something wrong with this package? If so, your mirrorlist contains outdated mirrors, and you should consider updating your mirrorlist, then updating your system.

The reverted commit in prepare() no longer reverted cleanly, this is now fixed. :)

Eschwartz, The quantity of issues and criticity (data corruptions) is high enough so at least one upstream dev is considering forbidding(← I'm not satisfied with this word, I'm not a native speaker and can't find better for now) to build against libtorrent 1.1.x for now. I've asked clarification and a broader discussion about that possibility:

Anyway, while I don't think that your strategy is the best, it's still good because it creates more incentive to fix the issues and most of all, lead to more data about the underlying causes which will helped fixing them.

Thanks for your work as a package maintainer :)

Eschwartz commented on 2017-01-15 02:01

tuxayo, I understood that as one of your meanings in the first place. ;)
"Anyway, nothing is stopping users from replacing libtorrent-rasterbar on their systems, with the alternative branches packaged in the AUR."

I still do not see why this package should *mandate* the 1.0.x branch, when that should be a user choice (to opt for the stable libtorrent-rasterbar with bleeding-edge qbittorrent).
So I am not going to change it.
