@dude Thanks! I reinstall thinkfan, can fix this error.

/usr/bin/thinkfan: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

@seqfault Don't symlink, just rebuild thinkfan whenever yaml-cpp gets updated.

now that yaml-cpp updated to 0.8.0 and thinkfan has 0.7.0 dependency hardcoded which likely won't be solved soon (see, you can make a symlink and it'll work fine: sudo ln -s /usr/lib/

@buzo Thanks, I missed that announcement.

Actually, base-devel is a meta package now, not a group any more – see this announcement. (See also the PKGBUILD Wiki page.)

@bachtiar Packages from the base-devel group are assumed to already be installed, so they aren't included in the build dependencies.

@ruaeci Thanks, that worked! Does that mean that pkgconfig should be added to build dependencies?

Try pacman -S base-devel yaml-cpp. This should install everything you need. In my case there was an error above the line you posted stating that pkgconfig could not be found (which is provided by base-devel).

I also had to add thinkpad_acpi.fan_control=1 to my kernel boot parameters.

Anybody else getting this error during makepkg even if yaml-cpp is installed?
