I'm unable to install V8JS with this package.

I'm missing a file called libv8_libplatform.a, which isn't in /usr/lib/v8/ to begin with:

sudo pecl install v8js
checking for V8 version...
checking for libv8_libplatform.a... not found
configure: error: Please provide libv8_libplatform.a next to the, see for details
ERROR: `/tmp/pear/temp/v8js/configure --with-php-config=/usr/bin/php-config --with-v8js' failed

Files in /usr/lib/v8:

Should build fine now: updated libtinfo5 to ncurses5-compat-libs.

There is no libtinfo5 anymore. libtinfo is at version 6, which does not provide /usr/lib/, but /usr/lib/
With libtinfo and a manually created symlink (and some PKGBUILD tweak) the package complies.

Updated the dep to libtinfo5

I can't install this package anymore because vim-youcompleteme-git requires libtinfo5 and v8 requires libtinfo-5, but only one of the two libtinfo's can be installed at the same time.

libtinfo-5 will be now called libtinfo5, please update your package accordingly.

It is a connection problem, probably related to your connection or the repository was momentarily unavailable.

When attempting to install I get this error:

svn checkout --force build/gyp \
--revision 1501
svn: E170013: Unable to connect to a repository at URL ''
svn: E160013: '/svn/trunk' path not found

Updated to latest cherry-pick

Ok, I saw the problem. Which package for ncurses are you referring to ?


Found the package you were talking about, now the package builds fine thanks.

In case of a missing gpg key error for installing ncurses5-compat-libs, import the key using this command:
gpg --keyserver --recv-keys F7E48EDB
