Thanks for letting us know @rany. This also solves my problem reported here some time ago.

Hi, apologies for my previous comment. It turns out that the container I was using ( base-devel) has the following in its pacman.conf:

NoExtract  = usr/share/help/* !usr/share/help/en*
NoExtract  = usr/share/gtk-doc/html/* usr/share/doc/*
NoExtract  = usr/share/locale/* usr/share/X11/locale/* usr/share/i18n/*
NoExtract   = !*locale*/en*/* !usr/share/i18n/charmaps/UTF-8.gz !usr/share/*locale*/locale.*
NoExtract   = !usr/share/*locales/en_?? !usr/share/*locales/i18n* !usr/share/*locales/iso*
NoExtract   = !usr/share/*locales/trans*
NoExtract  = usr/share/man/* usr/share/info/*
NoExtract  = usr/share/vim/vim*/lang/*

This inadvertently breaks this package. As a workaround, I've added:

NoExtract  = !usr/share/doc/qt/*

and it works fine. There are no issues with this and qt5-base was actually installed automatically, thanks!

rany commented on 2021-11-15 23:42 (UTC)

Could you please add qt5-base as a dependency? It provides the usr/share/doc/qt/global/qt-cpp-defines.qdocconf file.

muflone commented on 2021-07-31 18:15 (UTC)

@langfingaz please check if your build environment has the missing file: usr/share/doc/qt/global/qt-cpp-defines.qdocconf

I've just tested again using a clean chroot with devtools and everything was built properly

@Muflone my Docker run script copies the cloned AUR repo to /tmp/pkg and then builds with --syncdeps:

cp -r /pkg/qt-installer-framework /tmp/pkg
cd /tmp/pkg
makepkg --syncdeps --noconfirm

This installed the following dependencies, including qt-base:

muflone commented on 2021-07-25 23:14 (UTC)

@langfingaz the file shown in your error is contained into the qt-base package which is required from this package.

It seems an issue with your packaging way, are you installing the required dependencies before building the package?

langfingaz commented on 2021-07-25 10:11 (UTC)

Thanks for updating the package. It does however still not build for me with Docker based on archlinux:base-devel using makepkg:

The build of the documentation part fails for me:

However, I have successfully built a modified PKGBUILD without make docs and package_qt-installer-framework-docs.

latest version fails to build with qt 5.14 with component.cpp:53:10: fatal error: private/qv8engine_p.h: No such file or directory 53 | #include <private/qv8engine_p.h>

looks like this private include file does not exist in the latest qt5 installation

@Skycoder42 added you as comaintainer

Skycoder42 commented on 2018-06-02 22:19 (UTC)

@Muflone: Yes, I surely am. You can add me as comaintainer if you want to

muflone commented on 2018-06-02 19:01 (UTC)

package updated

@Skycoder42 I'm leaving the orphan request open. Are you interested in maintain or comaintain this package?

Instead of skipping sha256sum check, you can add the sha256sum

14    sha256sums=('f65059141278e0a1224a5b821ae8affe59ee4bb4b50abdc4e04f93fd69a02617')

3.0.4 Seems to have fixed the "QT_VERSION" error. This is what I changed in the PKGBUILD to successfully update.

 6    pkgver=3.0.2
    6 pkgver=3.0.4
13    source=("${pkgbase}/${pkgver}/${pkgbase}-opensource-src-${pkgver}.tar.gz")
14    sha256sums=('f65059141278e0a1224a5b821ae8affe59ee4bb4b50abdc4e04f93fd69a02617')
   13 source=("${pkgbase}/${pkgver}/${pkgbase}-opensource-src-${pkgver}.gz")
   14 sha256sums=('SKIP')

Skycoder42 commented on 2018-02-25 11:18 (UTC)

Currently the build fails with:

Please update to 3.0.2, thx in advance.

muflone commented on 2017-10-15 21:25 (UTC)

Package adopted and updated. Please note that since version 2.0.3-2 the tests are not built along with the library. Also the documentation and examples files are moved in the separated package qt-installer-framework-docs

ahjolinna commented on 2017-10-15 13:03 (UTC)

@duttondj: it would be nice if you could update this pkgs or at least bother to disown it so someone else could do it...sigh

jtmb commented on 2017-09-20 04:33 (UTC)

Thank you, @doviethoa, your proposed PKGBUILD worked for me.

**EDIT:** Never mind I'm installing qt-installer-framework now with makepkg. I just don't understand why the foxitreader package didn't do that for me. Thanks for this package.

OK, I'll leave it for the NY then. Have a good one. And see you on the other side.

duttondj commented on 2016-05-24 22:24 (UTC)

Not totally sure what the issue is for you. I receive the same errors but the make doesn't fail for me. It's an upstream issue that can be replicated by running "make docs".
