the dev Andrettin: one thing you could try is to re-generate the CMake project with the ENABLE_USEGAMEDIR option set to OFF that would cause the home directory to be used for that instead of the game directory that would probably solve the permissions issue

That might fix bugs GalaxyLJGD

Thank you, GalaxyLJGD.

For anyone else following along, the latest build, 5.3.5-3, still exhibits the problem.

jiffy1111, I have the same problem, and I've reported it to upstream, so they can solve it.

Hi, coredumps when trying to create a multiplayer game.

Sure! I'll make a workaround for the problem and I've notified upstream about this.

GalaxyLJGD, thank you for the patch! I am in a trip now, also I am not working with Wyrmsun for now. Would you like to co-maintain the package? (I add you to the list of co-maintainers).

GalaxyLJGD commented on 2022-05-08 00:46 (UTC) (edited on 2022-05-08 00:55 (UTC) by GalaxyLJGD)

I made a workaround with a script to be able to compile the game:

cflags="-march=x86-64 -mtune=generic -O2 -pipe -fno-plt -fexceptions \
        -Wp,-D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2 -fstack-clash-protection -fcf-protection"
cxxflags="$cflags -Wp,-D_GLIBCXX_ASSERTIONS"
makepkg -CL CFLAGS="$cflags" CXXFLAGS="$cxxflags"

When I ran the game I noticed that some Qt dependencies were not installed because they're not included in the PKGBUILD, so I made a patch to fix that:

I've tried several times to compile the game from 5.0, but it was impossible, this is the log makepkg returns:

I think this happens because /etc/makepkg.conf now includes a new option in the CFLAGS which is -Werror=format-security.

Edit: The log was so long that I thought that it would be better to put a link to a pastebin.

Updated, thank you.
