hi, not sure is this is the correct forum, but qt5-webkit is in the AUR so I chose this one.
I noticed that “qt5-webkit” takes a very long time to update, even in my DELL Inspiron 5559 (2015) it took hours but did finally update. but on my very old (2008) SONY VAIO it takes a a very long while then fails.
trying to update from 5.212.0alpha4-15 to 5.212.0alpha4-19
The longer story is that while webkit was initially QT-based (being taken from KDE) recent webkit is actually toolkit agnostic (supposedly this has to do with apple updating it) … so now the QT version is deprecated and has no need (unless you are running software that still depends on it).
Somewhat related … there is a project to re-QT-ify webkit.
I had the same issue myself, it was a dependency of TeamViewer. I don’t use TeamViewer (had to use it once lol) so I just uninstalled both packages. I have a msi gaming laptop and it was maxing out my laptop trying to build it for ages
