qt4 was expelled from the official repositories due to

It will not be restored, because software needs to stop using qt4. It's fine for people to still use it via the AUR if they have old software that is not ported, but the proper solution is to get that software ported to qt5.

"It takes a long time to compile" is not a reason to move it to community.


Only Developers and Trusted Users have access to, and we will not be uploading qt4 there. If we wanted qt4, we would upload it to community, but we don't -- we have managed to move every package still being actively maintained in the official repos, over to qt5, and we want to stay that way.


Again, the proper long-term solution is to get software ported over to qt5.

@jerome2016: build in a clean chroot, see the pinned comments.

@tom, I can't reproduce. Make sure to build in a chroot,as mentioned in the pinned comments above.

@gammy just a temporary lag

gammy commented on 2021-01-23 16:37 is dead as a doornail. I'm not sure if it's temporary or permanent but it might be worth finding another mirror.

@beaux_monde I assume pkgrel as a useful way to show changes introduced in PKGBUILD only regardless of the upstream sources. Also you can notice that packages in official repos are getting bumped in pkgrel even after simple rebuilds with the new libraries/compilers

@SDSK your error message is not informational at all - we need corresponding compilation log part to see what goes wrong. Also please try to build in clean chroot as referenced in the 3rd pinned post

Whether a new download URI is a weighty argument to change of the package revision (and to rebuild the huge package) if the source tarball remains the same?

mikesco3 commented on 2021-01-20 05:09

yeah I ended up editing the PKGBUILD at around line 29 and replacing where it said
