A package provides itself implicitly (qdirstat provides qdirstat without requiring a provides field); the responsibility of declaring conflicts and provides is actually on the VCS package (qdirstat-git). See VCS package guideline.

So technically this package should declare neither provides nor conflicts. I've commented on qdirstat-git to request an update on their part.

Provides: qdirstat-git

Should not it be simply qdirstat? EDIT: Or both?

You should not add extra make flags as these should be defined by the user in /etc/makepkg.conf

'make -j$(nproc)' should be just 'make'

Hi. I have successfully installed this on my Pinebook Pro with ARM processor. You probably could add 'aarch64' as another supported architecture.

Please accept this PR (diff):

This will upgrade from 1.6 to 1.6.1

Hope it helps!

It works as intended and what's more with bring qt based it inherited transparency and blurry effect from my Kvantum.

I get:

FATAL: This application failed to start because it could not find or load the Qt platform plugin "xcb" in "".

Reinstalling the application may fix this problem. Aborted (core dumped)

I think I'm missing an Qt extension, but not sure which one. It's missing from the dependencies.

Hi I could successfully install QDirStat on my Pinebook with ARM Allwinner CPU. Maybe you could add aarch64 to the supported architectures ?

Never hard-code makeflags in PKGBUILD files unless you really have to. To use custom make flags (consistently), set them in /etc/makepkg.conf.

You can remove git from makedepends now that it's no longer used.

Building now fails:

==> Starting pkgver()...
==> ERROR: pkgver is not allowed to contain colons, forward slashes, hyphens or whitespace.
==> ERROR: pkgver() generated an invalid version: 1.4.97-Beta

To fix this, change the source line to


and remove the pkgver and prepare functions (those are only needed for VCS packages). cd "$srcdir/$pkgname" in build() and package() also needs to be changed to cd "$pkgname-$pkgver".

1.4.97-Beta release has been added, which breaks this package because of the hyphen in the tag name

It would be better to limit the PKGBUILD to the latest stable release and not rely on the tag name

Don't set it to any, the resulting package would also specify an any architecture even though this clearly includes architecture-dependent ELF files. Just put in armv7h if you want to - the best way however is not to include it since Arch Linux ARM is not an officially supported distribution of Arch. For ARM users I would recommend using devtools-alarm which ignores the architecture tags in PKGBUILDs.

phiresky commented on 2017-09-26 02:11 (UTC)

I think if the dependencies can be built, this package can be built. I set the architecture to any.

sajattack commented on 2017-09-23 17:38 (UTC)

Successfully built on armv7h. Please add this to your supported architectures.
