@quequotion You're right that going up a directory for the patch is unnecessary, however, the patch should be present in both places when cloning the git repo from the AUR.

Odd, I get the impression it's been there for a long time and no one's had a problem with it, but when I tried to build this package in a clean chroot, PKGBUILD line 24 caused a build failure (no such file or directory):

  patch -Np1 -i ${srcdir}/../transparency.patch

doesn't need "..", since it is already prepended with $srcdir:

  patch -Np1 -i ${srcdir}/transparency.patch

@iv597, Good news, I was able to reproduce the error on a different machine. After some googling, I found a solution (from here: Disabling rst2man at configure time seems to do the trick! Let me know if it still doesn't work for you!

I'm sorry, but I'm afraid I can't help you there. Even if I follow your steps, I don't encounter any problems... Here is the equivalent snippet from the build process:

Even after a completely clean build (rm -rf'd everything, pulled the package through cower, and built manually with makepkg, so packer wouldn't get in the way), I get the same build errors.

@iv597 Just checked again, and it builds just fine here... maybe try it again with a clean tree!

This fails to build nowadays, claiming there's no rule to build alsaucm.1:

Just created my AUR to give you a big THUMBS UP for this package. Thanks for making this possible!

Works great with both alsamixer and alsamixer plugins like alsaequalizer. Thanks alot!

It's working again. Thanks!

luspi commented on 2013-08-05 18:34 (UTC)

Apologies, my mistake! Should be fixed now.

i_magnific0 commented on 2013-08-05 13:02 (UTC)

Can confirm have the same problem. The patch does not seems to be included in the package tarball (AUR or alsa-project). I built the package manually for now, using:

==> Starting build()... patch: **** Can't open patch file /tmp/packerbuild-0/alsa-utils-transparent/alsa-utils-transparent/src/../transparency.patch : No such file or directory ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

luspi commented on 2013-05-21 22:50 (UTC)

Thanks, updated. Should be okay now.

There seems to be a typo in: /usr/lib/systemd/system/alsa-restore.service it was already alsa-utils in extra, but this package seems to be still affected (I tried rebuilding). See bug report:

Adopted and updated

I get "Connection Refused" when attempting to use the official ftp, so I have commented it out and provided a mirror.
