What do you think about split the packages and create a PKGBUILD for each one?

FAQ

Q1. error while loading shared libraries: libicui18n.so.62: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

A1. You'll need to rebuild against the new ICU 63.

Q2. I can't build! There's an error "error: ‘WTF::StringImpl::StaticASCIILiteraicASCIILiteral’ has not been declared"

A2. Try disabling parallel building - use -j1 in both PKGBUILD and /etc/makepkg.conf

Q3. Building takes too long time!

A3: WebKit is inherently big and complex. It can take up to 13.5 hours to build (on AMD Athlon X2, thanks to @Bonnietwin for sharing). You can modify makepkg.conf or PKGBUILD directly to build it in parallel. Check out @MadMe's and @tuxsavvy's comments.

Q4. What's the difference between this package and extra/webkit2gtk?

A4. webkitgtk/webkitgtk2 provides WebKit1 API/ABI, which is not compatible with WebKit2 API/ABI provided by extra/webkit2gtk.

Dropped as I don't need this anymore.

You don't need icu62. You NEED to rebuild webkitgtk against icu 63.

An AUR package of 'icu62 62.1-1' was released on 2018-11-05.

As I mentioned in FAQ, I maintain prebuilt and signed packages at https://cdn.repo.archlinuxcn.org

Sorry for the late reply and excuse my ignorance in case I am missing something obvious, but which signatures do you refer to? AUR packages are not signed, are they?

yan12125 commented on 2018-10-10 12:21

Primarily because people might get signature mismatch errors if you change a package without bumping pkgver/pkgrel.

PhotonX commented on 2018-10-10 09:41

Hmm, why not? :) You can add "-f" to the makepkg call or is the problem somewhere else?

yan12125 commented on 2018-10-10 08:24

Sorry for frequent version bumps recently. My build scripts do not build a package again without changing pkgver/pkgrel.

PhotonX commented on 2018-10-10 06:52

Would it be possible to make silent updates when fixing building problems, such that users who already have the package installed aren't forced to recompile it during the update?
