Archlinux PKGBUILDs for Qt5/PyQt5 with debugging enabled.
A note on branches
- upstream: The vanilla Archlinux upstream packages.
- master: Based on upstream, adds debugging symbols.
Precompiled binary packages
Binary packages for the master branch are available as an unofficial Archlinux repo. See the qutebrowser documentation for details.
Until Qt 5.7, the patched PKGBUILDs lived in the master branch, and the upstream branch (with the vanilla Archlinux PKGBUILDs) got merged into upstream after updating. However, this caused frequent merge conflicts as the patched lines are close to the version number.
Since Qt 5.7, there are no merges anymore - instead, the updated upstream
PKGBUILDs live in the upstream branch, and patching is automated using
Here is how an update looks:
git checkout upstream
git status, add new files
git diff, review upstream changes
- `git commit -am "Update to Qt 5.x.y"
Update patched PKGBUILDs
git checkout master
git rm -r qt5-* pyqt*
git checkout upstream -- qt5-\* pyqt\* pkglist
git reset HEAD .(unstage all changes)
git status, add/delete files
git diff --staged, review
- Add new makedepends in
