@Strykar, download links for this package are just fine. You can try them out in the "Sources" section above and see that they work. If you have a problem with a dependent AUR package (like libdaq), then post it in the proper AUR package page, not here (it's not even the same maintainer).

Build of 2.9.16 now fails with GCC10. See for patching 2.9.16 so it can build under GCC10.

I think there is a missing dependency:

ERROR! LuaJIT library not found. Go get it from (or) Try compiling without openAppId using '--disable-open-appid' configure: error: "Fatal!"

I have installed luajit ( manualy and it works.

I get an error during compilation. Is there a missing dependency?
