@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.

I'm seeing Import error "No module named sip" crashes in poptrayminus with 4.12.3. According to, "building PyQt4 v4.12.2 or later you must configure SIP to create a private copy of the sip module using a command line similar to the following: python --sip-module PyQt4.sip --no-dist-info --no-tools". I'm struggling to figure out how to get this to work and any help would be appreciated.

Not a show-stopper, but noticed that $CFLAGS or $CXXFLAGS are not honored in building.

Thanks for the hint! I have removed that dependency now.

It builds OK if you remove qt-assistant-compat from the makedepends in PKGBUILD

qt-assistant-compat was removed from the packages, we can't build this now.
