Mercurial gives "revision not found". Even if I remove the revision tag it still fails to pull the mercurial repository.

xxdiff works with bison in base-devel now: http://ix.io/B1h

Is there any fixed release now?

Dropping back to bison-2.7.1 (the last in my pacman cache before bison-3.0) did indeed allow me to build xxdiff-4.0. There were a few warnings during the compilation, but no errors. Thanks for the tip. I'll report it upstream and see what they think.

dlin commented on 2013-08-26 16:35 (UTC)

That problem may caused by bison 3.0. I don't know how to patch it. Maybe you could downgrade bison, and compile again.

[Posted this in the forum - now copying it here.] I'm getting failures when trying to build both xxdiff or xxdiff-hg (using yaourt as the frontend, and now with just makepkg). Both have failed for the last few months when trying to compile resParser_yacc.cpp: g++ -c -pipe -march=x86-64 -mtune=generic -O2 -pipe -fstack-protector --param=ssp-buffer-size=4 -D_REENTRANT -Wall -W -DQT_NO_DEBUG -DQT_GUI_LIB -DQT_CORE_LIB -DQT_SHARED -I/usr/share/qt4/mkspecs/linux-g++ -I. -I/usr/include/qt4/QtCore -I/usr/include/qt4/QtGui -I/usr/include/qt4 -I. -I. -o resParser_yacc.o resParser_yacc.cpp resParser.y: In function ‘int resParserparse()’: resParser.y:41:48: error: ‘resources’ was not declared in this scope #define RESOURCES ( static_cast<XxResources*>(resources) ) ^ resParser.y:188:23: note: in expansion of macro ‘RESOURCES’ RESOURCES->setPreferredGeometry( geometry ); ^ resParser.y:41:48: error: ‘resources’ was not declared in this scope #define RESOURCES ( static_cast<XxResources*>(resources) ) ^ resParser.y:199:20: note: in expansion of macro ‘RESOURCES’ RESOURCES->setMaximize( true ); ^ resParser.y:41:48: error: ‘resources’ was not declared in this scope #define RESOURCES ( static_cast<XxResources*>(resources) ) ^ resParser.y:209:23: note: in expansion of macro ‘RESOURCES’ RESOURCES->setStyleKey( styleKey ); ^ etc. My last successful build was xxdiff-hg 404-1 in April, but it is now failing for me for both packages on three different machines (all x86_64). My systems are all up-to-date. I've not found any comments about this in the forum, wiki, AUR page, or after some fair amount of googling, so I'm at a loss (and not familiar enough with C++ to make any headway). Any thoughts? Thanks.

I don't think this package should be considered "out of date" until a new release actually comes out. However, I may add the xxdiff 4.0 beta as a separate package soon (or if I don't, someone else can feel free to step in).

> Suggestions? Export QTDIR in the pkgbuild, before launching make. If you can improve the package, why not adopt it? Or at least update it.
