Any chance you could include the patch from so audiotools works with python-urwid>=2.2.0?

I have bumped the Arch version to add libdvd-audio as a dependency. The DVD-Audio programs should now install. I don't have a way to test whether they function.

Could you make this package support the DVD-Audio programs it includes? All you have to do is to add libaudio-dvd as a dependency. It has to be built with it installed. It is by the same developer as this: There are not many open source tools to rip DVD-Audio discs. There's DVD Audio Tools, but it is much older than this and unmaintained. Other than that, packages for specific file formats could be made optional.

New version from upstream. The man pages are now installed, thanks to Arch user skunark. The pdf docs describe audio file formats, not audiotools. They require many makedepends, much build time, and more disk space. Also, I was not able to build them without an error. I consider the pdf docs to be beyond the scope of my AUR package.

And to build the PDFs you will need to add... find . -name "Makefile" -exec sed 's/sphinx-build/sphinx-build2/' -i {} \;

I missed another dependency pdftk which has few of its own to build (gcc-gcj) and all from AUR. (line 31 of (and gcc-gcj takes for ever to build...) I would probably just stick with the man pages as the PDFs are more for developers, skip the pdftk dependancy, and with the long list of dependancies to build them it might be an optional step, another package or ask for pdftk to be removed. Also for the PKGBUILD you can add the following to package() around the python2 compile line install -dm 755 "${pkgdir}"/usr/share/licenses/${pkgname} install -m 644 {,"${pkgdir}"/usr/share/licenses/${pkgname}/}COPYING

Arch user skunark: thanks for the PKGBUILD. Man pages working fine, but issues with pdf docs. I added another sed command to convert python to python2 in docs/reference/Makefile. This creates audioformats-letter.pdf that looks great, 388 pages, ends with License section. However, the build() aborts with an error. python2 ../ "--title=Audio Formats Reference" "--author=Brian Langenberger" audioformats-letter.pdf Traceback (most recent call last): File "../", line 31, in <module> stdout=subprocess.PIPE) File "/usr/lib/python2.7/", line 711, in __init__ errread, errwrite) File "/usr/lib/python2.7/", line 1308, in _execute_child raise child_exception OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory make[1]: *** [audioformats-letter.pdf] Error 1 My Make-fu is weak. Do you have any suggestions?

skunark commented on 2013-08-26 03:12 (UTC)

djscholl, I've tweaked the PKGBUILD script so the man pages can be built and installed and thought I would share them with you. Also added dependancies for building the docs as noted in src/doc/BUILD file (and a few other tidbits to build from git you can be skipped)
