I tried some things and I still haven't found a solution for this. Appending `-fpermissive` to CFLAGS, CXXFLAGS and CPPFLAGS environment variables doesn't help. This is frustrating.

marcvangend, ok, I get these errors as well. When I saw that build process is going all right for a while I assumed it would build successfully all the way, so I cancelled it and pushed the update. Looks like I was wrong.

Thanks gim. Unfortunately it still breaks on my machine, but the good news is: it breaks in a different way, much later in the process. The last part of the `makepkg -fcCi` output looks like this: .

Hope that helps.

It should build successfully now, feedback would be appreciated.

marcvangend, yeap, looks like `gnu++14` is now default mode for GCC 6. We need to use `-std=gnu++98` flag for this, I'll fix PKGBUILD soon. Thanks for reporting this :)

@gim, does the package still compile correctly for you? I'm getting lots of errors like this one when running `makepkg -fcCi`:

/home/user/java8-openjdk/src/jdk8u-jdk8u92-b14/hotspot/src/share/vm/gc_implementation/g1/g1CollectedHeap.inline.hpp:97:15: error: invalid suffix on literal; C++11 requires a space between literal and string macro [-Werror=literal-suffix]

I tried adding `export CXXFLAGS="-Wno-error"` to the PKGBUILD but that didn't help.

Hi gim, thanks. I get the GNUstep error even when building through ABS, so I'm trying building in a clean chroot now. It is weird, because I tried removing the gnustep packages (no packages are dependent on them, so how did they get installed?) prior to my ABS build. Nonetheless building in a clean chroot seems to be working, my machine is a bit slow :)

twenty3andaspie, hi. Could you check if you can build java8-openjdk from ABS? Personally I'm not getting these warning messages about GNUStep (I don't even have it installed). Also, building this in a clean chroot might help to find out if this issue is caused by error in the PKGBUILD.

Hey, is anyone having problems building this package? Please refer to for details.

I see there are pre-built binaries, which I don't mind, but from a perspective of package maintenance, I prefer building from AUR.

kpbochenek, I simply removed 'jdk7-openjdk' from the makedepends and it compiled fine.
