@kingkingmax > Can you detail more your solution? I am having the same issue.

@ColonelThirtyTwo @sfaunl I found the issue is at sip.h Even compilier is new version, it doesn't work very well for following:

if __cplusplus >= 201103L || defined(_MSVC_LANG)

========================= / C++11 and later. /

define SIP_NULLPTR nullptr
define SIP_OVERRIDE override

/ Earlier versions of C++. /

define SIP_NULLPTR 0

============= I changed C++11 part as earlier version of C++. It works.

@ColonelThirtyTwo I'm getting same error. Downgrading gcc did not solve the problem.

Getting an error when I try to build this using G++ 8.2.1 (latest arch version):

There is now an AUR package for the missing sip module, such that these packages should depend on python2-sip-pyqt4/python-sip-pyqt4. Alternately this package could be modified to include the sip module, if the maintainer has interest.

Here are a couple of PKGBUILDs for the sip module: and

@inemum: Thanks for the tip! I created a sip PKGBUILD as you suggested and was able to get everything working again with pyqt4-4.12.3.

Same error as Ostrodamus. Add puddletag to the list of broken packages that depend on python-pyqt4.

0strodamus: you can modify the sip PKGBUILD using the "--sip-module PyQt4.sip" option that you mentioned. I added a couple of extra packages (python-sip-pyqt4 and python2-sip-pyqt4) using the code for Qt5 as a basis and it seems to work fine on my system.
