base-devel group is assumed to be installed before try to install any AUR package.

Hi maintainer,

please add core/pkgconf as dependency, the build fails without it:

==> Starting build()...
CMake Error at /usr/share/cmake-3.13/Modules/FindPackageHandleStandardArgs.cmake:137 (message):

I'm suffering a similar (but not the same) message: "The Amarok database reported the following errors: The configured database plugin could not be loaded. In most cases you will need to resolve these errors before Amarok will run properly." It also came up after an overall upgrade, including the mariadb package as mentioned by zebulon. EDIT: I've just built amarok-2.9.0.r351.0362c32b7a-1-x86_64 with mariadb 10.3.12-2 previously installed and Amarok launched alright, without any errors. I also corrected before compiling the file /etc/mysql/my.cnf, which should be based on a much simplified /etc/mysql/my.cnf.pacnew (I don't know from which version it got shorter).

Hi, since 2019-01-18 amarok does not start, complaining with:

The Amarok database reported the following errors: MySQLe query failed! (0) on Error setting option to use embedded connection MySQLe query failed! (2002) Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2) on call to mysql_real_connect In most cases you will need to resolve these errors before Amarok will run properly.

I am wondering if this is caused by the mariadb upgrade yesterday. Rebuilding amarok does not fix the issue. Any idea?

Hi maintainer,

Would you mind not bumping the package version for this when there's a new git commit? For one thing this isn't a -git package so it should just be the latest stable version and, for another, you don't need to bump the package version for -git packages either (users can just rebuild when they want a new version).

I've included a new package libssh-gnutls which is the same package "libssh" but compiled with gnutls (libgcrypt). This a new dependency to amarok so amarok shouldn't crash at start.

@frealgagu: Thanks for clarifying so quickly!
