I can get this to build after editing the PKGBUILD to skip the md5sums (because you will be editing one of the checked files):

md5sums=('SKIP'
         'SKIP')

And then editing the qwt.patch file by replacing it with the following:

diff --git a/qt-dab.pro b/qt-dab.pro
index 29176ad..e760609 100644
--- a/qt-dab.pro

ETA: The qt-dab.pro file was updated in mid December. It is likely the qt-dab.pro file will be continuously updated as the program evolves and files are changed.

You will also need to comment out the sdrplay-v3 line in the qt-dab.pro file within the src file in the qt-dab-git folder, otherwise the program will not compile (it is experimental at the moment):

#CONFIG     += sdrplay-v3       # pretty experimental

If you are using yay, you can first of all download the files to edit by using:

yay -G qt-dab-git

When done editing, change to the qt-dab-git folder and issue the following command:

makepkg -si

The package will then build.

There is however, another problem. I can not get audio for DAB+ stations to decode with FAAD2 version 2.9. Version 2.8 works fine. This also occurs with welle.io which also uses FAAD for DAB+ decoding, so it may be a problem which needs to be fixed upstream.

The issue appears to be still there. :-(

qt-dab was updated tonight to version 2.0. It will no longer compile as the patch file is no longer compatible.
