That's too bad. This package should probably be discontinued, since it's going to match the release version going forward.

FYI, upstream repository has been archived. Hope some forks or good alternative emerges.

@goetzc works perfectly, thanks for the quick fix!

@liquidzoo looks like the Git history was overwritten, as the tags are no longer ancestors of HEAD. I've pushed a fix.

I'm not smart enough (apparently) to interpret this error that I've gotten the last couple of days:

fatal: No tags can describe '32a4ed871e629994b673c08e89f3b35ce538c74e'. Try --always, or create some tags. ==> ERROR: pkgver is not allowed to be empty. ==> ERROR: pkgver() generated an invalid version: Error making: cantata-git

Build fails when upgrading. I do have devel turned on for yay, so it does rebuild/reinstall when there are new git commits.

Can you add "aarch64" to the supported architectures? It compiles on there fine.

I don't understand, if this is supposed to pull git code for cantata, why is it still building 2.3.2?

My library was missing data in 2.3.2 and I had to update to 2.4.0 to fix.

Why doesn't this package build from the github repo?

Sorry if stupid question.

Thanks Scrumplex, there is no need for a daily update of -git packages, unless they don't build.

Note: VCS packages are not considered out of date when the pkgver changes, do not flag them as the maintainer will merely unflag the package and ignore you. AUR maintainers should not commit mere pkgver bumps.

Scrumplex commented on 2018-09-03 07:56 (UTC)

Are you willing to hand over the maintenance of the package? I would be updating it daily.

Build failure from 0278b57 commit: /home/user/Projects/cantata-git/src/cantata-git/replaygain/ffmpeginput.cpp:24:36: fatal error: libavutil/audioconvert.h: No such file or directory compilation terminated. The current ffmpeg package (1.3.0) lacks the header file: It appears that the header has been deprecated upstream (ffmpeg): This issue is also tracked upstream (cantata):

@f1u77y, you are right, LibVLC is only used by default. Thanks, I will update the PKGBUILD.

f1u77y commented on 2016-02-04 07:31 (UTC)

@goetzc, why do you disable mpd http stream playback when libvlc is disabled? it's also supported by enabling qt5-multimedia, so if you build with ENABLE_LIBVLC=OFF, playback will be supported with qt5-multimedia

@agapito PKGBUILD updated, please try now.
