@slobeck I was able to build @BlackIkeEagle's "rapidjson-git" PKG and in turn "kodi-git".
"rapidjson-git" calls for "gtest" so I got it from Community "gtest" and from AUR "mingw-w64-gtest"
(not sure if I needed both PKG's). It still failed to build so I copied the contents of
"/usr/src/gtest/" to a newly created DIR "/usr/src/gtest/include/gtest/"
and "rapidjson-git" completed building.

I was able to build "kodi-git" without any issues after. Thanks!!

@BlackIkeEagle your rapidjson-git fails to build

@tixetsal You can get the proper pkgbuild for rapidjson-git here:

I'm going to have to create a rapidjson package anyway so its available by the time kodi 18 has to go to community

@BlackIkeEagle I tried downloading rapidjson, but of course it gets replaced by rapidjson-git as the package managers run through dependencies.
I wanted to make sure that it wasn't something I was doing. I appreciate the work that you put into maintaining kodi-git.

@tixetsal I know, the maintainer of rapidjson-git must fix the package first.

see my comments there:

I still can't build this package (with yaourt or pacaur), and I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I receive the following error:

@dbrobins thanks I'll update the patch

dbrobins commented on 2017-04-09 02:48

The 0001-fmt-does-not-have-sprintf.patch appears to be doing the wrong thing - instead of switching to fmt::format it should be adding a #include "fmt/printf.h". With the patch as it is, it doesn't convert printf-style strings, which for me meant (1) kodi.log was filled with formatting chars rather than timestamp etc., and (2) when it tried to do the database update, I got databases like 'MyVideos%d' and 'MyMusic%d'.

@tixetsal, Yes they are rapidly intorducing changes and I'm currently unable to fix them for now, wendsday I hope I can start looking into it.

If just want to test a version you could use the last built kodi-git from my repo [herecura]

@BlackIkeEagle It looks like you updated the package since I first encountered the difficulty building, but I still get errors while compiling. Is it on me? Thanks.
