Hello @afontenot,

the reason to change the upstream to their official github was that starting with version 5 the linux package (scid_linux.tar.gz) that I got from sourceforge is a precompiled one, so I rather pick the tagged version from their github and compile it "as usual".

If you know how to get the sources from sourceforge I will gladly add it back here. You are also welcome to co-maintain the package with me... or even take over if you really want it ;-)

What is the reason for switching the source location to a Github link? As far as I can tell the official home page for Scid still points to Sourceforge for downloads. The Github link seems to be a (hopefully legitimate) mirror - but I would continue to use the official source until they link the Github on their website.

This is NOT out-of-date. The version is still 4.7.4 according to

as of 2022/07/20.


is just a commit on their source code. They are likely working on the eventual 4.8.0 release... for whenever is ready

I cannot make it work with OPTIMIZE="$CXXFLAGS"

src/hfilter.h:125:16: error: ‘make_unique’ is not a member of ‘std’ data_ = std::make_unique<byte[]>(capacity);

and many others..

for now it is as you guys wanted it except for that. Try and let me know ;-)

Sure can... I'm busy at the moment but as soon as I get some free time, I can try it myself and let you know.

I was having a little conversation about the scid-PKGBUILD on the forum lately. Maybe you'd like to make some adaptations to it:

donpicoro commented on 2019-03-25 09:17 (UTC)

Updated to 4.7 ;-)

donpicoro commented on 2015-10-23 07:44 (UTC)

done, I did not tested it... let me know whether it works ;-) Thank you for it.
