I've stopped using ArchLinux locally so maintaining this package is not really high on list of my priorities.

Message me if you'd like to take over.

As for the boost incompatibility, you should have raise the Issue on the github.

Apart from the aforementioned issue (pkgrel in .SRCINFO), Peercoin doesn't seem to build with Boost 1.67. The following error occurs during build():

checking whether the Boost::Unit_Test_Framework library is available... yes
configure: error: No working boost sleep implementation found
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

pkgrel in .SRCINFO needs to be bumped to 4.

The Peercoin binary is being copied from the wrong directory. Also, pkgrel in .SRCINFO is out of date.

depends=('qt5-base' 'miniupnpc' 'boost-libs' 'qrencode' 'miniupnpc')

The qrencode dependency is missing.

peercoin.install has two mistakes. First, a symlink to the wrong file is being created in peercoin_install(), line four should be ln -s /usr/bin/peercoin-qt /usr/bin/ppcoind Second, the wrong file is being removed in post_remove(), line 16 should be rm /usr/bin/ppcoind Also, .SRCINFO doesn't have its pkgrel (line four) updated to the same value as in PKGBUILD.

smp commented on 2017-06-02 06:30 (UTC)

The package no longer seems to compile with GCC 7.1.1.
