@SebastianOnArch Thank you for letting me know. I updated the PKGBUILD and removed the gcc14 compatibility patch. Additionally, I fixed recent compilation errors due to QT6 detection problems.

There have been changes made to upstream (ceae7711b649738f06188f906b7782258222c090), fixing the gcc 14 issue, thus rendering the gcc14.patch useless.

Currently, the package can't build, because the patch can't find the initial source line. Removing the gcc14.patch fixes the issue.

@PizzaBote2.4 Build fails due to an upstream incompatibility with latest gcc 14. I've added a patch to PKGBUILD to fix the issue.

I'm getting a compilation error

It works! Thank You @knoelli!

@jwhickman The Qt6.7 patch was merged with commits 42fa6221 and 9cbc2ff2 so 5182.patch is no longer needed. I updated PKGBUILD so compilation should work again.

jwhickman commented on 2024-04-29 12:58 (UTC)

It works - after I strip 5182.patch from the PKGBUILD.

@cassa The error you see is because the source has already been patched. If you use an AUR helper like yay, you should look for the temporary build directory (in case of yay it should be ~/.cache/yay/vlc-git/) and install the already build package from there with pacman -U <packagename>.tar.zst.

I had almost installed the package - but password timed out - now I consistently get

Hunk #2 FAILED at 39.

but the reject file saved is nowhere to be found

@ManuelBoe Upstream did quite a lot of changes which made modifications to the Qt6.7 patch necessary. Latest commit should not compile, except for the following problem:

Current version of libupnp 1.14.19-1 contains a bug in one of it's configuration files which makes this package fail to build right now. In order to compile the package, you need to either:
- downgrade to libupnp 1.14.18-1
- manually edit the file /usr/lib/pkgconfig/libupnp.pc and add the version number 1.14.19-1 in the corresponding line
- wait for the libupnp package to get updated, I'll open a ticket for the package maintainer right now.

libupnp version 1.14.19-2 fixes above mentioned issue.
