I had the same problem as and I could solve it by applying the following patch to PKGBUILD.

<   cmake -D WITH_SYSTEM_FFMPEG=Off ..

There's an "enable notifications" button on the right-hand side of every package's page.

hvksmr1996 commented on 2018-02-28 04:28

Oh! nvm then.

BTW, how could you reply me so quickly? In other words, how to get notify in ArchLinux site?

WhyNotHugo commented on 2018-02-28 04:25

Those binaries won't work on Arch because why're built against older libraries. What I ended up doing is using that binary in a docker container, and that worked fine for me.

hvksmr1996 commented on 2018-02-28 04:23

Instead of compiling directly, why don't you just use binaries?

I was able to build with gcc7 up until recently, but now I get "Fatal: crash from within the crash signal handler" when trying to run the program.

I couldn't find an easy way around that, so I tried just updating the PKGBUILD for the alpha of 5.1, which is already more than a year old but does work on my setup. Here are my changes:

Some nastiness because upstream has moved some things to submodules but doesn't include them in its source archive, so I added them as separate sources. One of them (cppformat) has recursive submodules that no longer resolve, but the build works without them so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I wish it were cleaner but honestly, StepMania is just not that distro-friendly.

Nascher commented on 2017-10-29 16:27

Ok, thanks for the information.
I will look into this and adjust the PKGBUILD in some days.

I had no issue building stepmania 5.0.12 with core/gcc (7.2.0), maybe swap the gcc5 dependency for gcc to reduce the build time considerably. The cmake command I used is `cmake -DWITH_MINIMAID=OFF -G "Unix Makefiles" ..`. No MINIMAID to work around

Xaero252 commented on 2017-09-02 23:24

A recent change to /etc/makepkg.conf breaks ALL GCC5 compilation (not just this package)
-fno-plt has been added to the default list of flags and is not supported in GCC5. I'm not sure the best way to work around this currently. For now I've commented it out to compile this package.

There is a missing makedepends on git:
[ 1%] Performing download step for 'ffmpeg'
/bin/sh: git: command not found
make[2]: *** [CMakeFiles/ffmpeg.dir/build.make:90: ffmpeg-prefix/src/ffmpeg-stamp/ffmpeg-download] Error 127
make[1]: *** [CMakeFiles/Makefile2:68: CMakeFiles/ffmpeg.dir/all] Error 2

This was also reported by Espionage724. git is not part of base-devel, so needs to be explicitly listed.

emersion commented on 2017-04-26 20:33

Can you remove "WITH_SYSTEM_FFMPEG=Off"?

Espionage724 commented on 2016-10-06 02:11

I'm relatively new to AUR; I didn't see needing to install git as a per-requisite anywhere, but I needed to install git before the package worked (iirc it failed early on during the ffmpeg step).

Nascher commented on 2016-07-11 14:11

Changed :-)

aucubin commented on 2016-07-11 13:09

you forgot to change the sha512sum of stepmania.install.

Nascher commented on 2016-07-11 12:39

@Artefact2 I updated the PKGBUILD, so StepMania will be built with GCC5.

If bugs still exists during the process of compiling, feel free to write an email to me. You can find the address in the PKGBUILD or if you click on my profile

Artefact2 commented on 2016-07-02 00:31

I cannot compile the package. Using gcc 6.1.1. Am I the only one?

aur/stepmania/src/stepmania-5.0.11/src/ThemeMetric.h:280:4: internal compiler error: in emit_move_insn, at expr.c:3546
m_metric[*s].Load( sGroup, pfn(*s) );
Please submit a full bug report,
with preprocessed source if appropriate.
See <> for instructions.

Nascher commented on 2016-05-23 08:39

Have you builded it with GCC 6.1.1?
I have the same problem that it will crash with that GCC version, but with GCC 5.3.0 I can play it.

I've updated the PKGBUILD to enable GCC 6.1 support.
Now it should work :-)

leledumbo commented on 2016-05-19 14:18

builds fine, but upon execution:

Compiled 20160519 @ 13:47:55 (build UNKNOWN)
Log starting 2016-05-19 21:17:53
Fatal: crash from within the crash signal handler

ajs124 commented on 2016-04-02 15:05

You might want to add "-D WITH_MINIMAID=OFF" to the cmake line, so it builds with -fPIC. I doubt anyone using this package uses those anyways.

Nascher commented on 2016-03-05 18:33

I've updated the PKGBUILD, it should now build the package.

dos1 commented on 2016-03-05 18:01

If you want to build it, as a dirty workaround you can change "cmake -D WITH_SYSTEM_FFMPEG=ON .." to "cmake -D WITH_SYSTEM_FFMPEG=OFF .." in build() section.

Ape commented on 2016-03-05 06:56

I can confirm that there is a ffmpeg related build error.

aucubin commented on 2016-03-01 13:32

It seems like stepmania doesn't build against the new version 3 of ffmpeg and changing the dependency to ffmpeg28 also didn't help.

Unfortunately I don't have experience with writing PKGBUILDs so I can't fix it myself.

Nascher commented on 2015-08-13 19:22

Hi Artefact2,

I can add you as a Co-Mantainer, if you want to manage the package too :-)

Artefact2 commented on 2015-08-13 16:58

Hi Nascher,

Thanks for taking over the package. I moved earlier this month and had no internet access.
