Fails to link with clang/llvm 16-17. Numerous linker errors:

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lclangASTMatchers: No such file or directory
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lclangFrontend: No such file or directory
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lclangSerialization: No such file or directory

Current OOD flag is wrong. But as llvm15 and related packages have been dropped from repo, I recommend to update to a newer commit version from master, which works with llvm16. It is the 7th commit since release v2023.11 (e0262bb) that contains the compatibility update for the latter:

It's unfortunate that this project was shut down in Dec 2021.

It's unknown if the community will maintain it long-term. For now, there's already a fork that fixes a compile error for llvm-13:

@Un1Gfn I fixed the UI freezing issue. The fix was recently released:

Building from source succeeds (CXX ok, Java/Python not tested), but the UI freezes a lot.

Your binary packages does NOT have this issue.

@jetm Try building from source if you may. Do you get a responsive UI?

I'm trying to index a Python project with the latest version (2020.4.35) and I'm getting errors like these for each source file:

command ""/opt/sourcetrail/bin//../share/data/python/SourcetrailPythonIndexer" index --source-file-path="PATH_TO_SOURCE_FILE" --database-file-path="PATH_TO_DB_FILE"" returned code "255" with message "File not found or resource error occurred.".

I've replaced the source file and database file paths with PATH_TO_SOURCE_FILE and PATH_TO_DB_FILE in the above message, but they appear to be correct (so the error shouldn't be related to that).

Interestingly, running that command manually succeeds.

UPDATE: Ah, this is an upstream bug, see:

@fsimonis: yes, you're right. Sourcetrail can be built now from scratch. I have verified it. Thanks!

The next problem is to figure out which files are required to be packaged. I can get the Sourcetrail binary, but there are many more files that should be packaged too. The CMake has not a make install entry. At upstream, Sourcetrail is doing the Linux packaging in a no standard way [1].


I need more time to finish that part. I will work at it in next days

@jetm The new release 2020.4.35 adds QT forward-compatibility. I can compile and use this version of sourcetrail without tweaks on Arch. Would you mind migrating this package to building from source?

@xa0082249956 Updated the package with libglvnd dependency. Thanks!
