@falkTX: the optdepends wouldn't work that way.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but AFAICS to make these features available, they need to be compiled/linked into So they need at least be added to makedepends. But if they are linked into the shared library, carla won't start if the package providing the shared library isn't installed. A package should always be usable without any packages form optdepends installed.

In short, the packages you mention are compile-time options, but not run-time options (and optdepends is only for the latter).

I see clxclient is still there, please remove it.

Also remove DEFAULT_QT=5 from the make arguments, Qt5 is now the default.

I would like to see a few things moved into recommends instead of being depends. This being:

ffmpeg - extra audio support in the audio-file plugin

liblo - OSC support

fluidsynth - SF2 file support

linuxsampler - GIG and SFZ file support

projectm - internal ProM plugin

ntk-git - NTK UI for internal zyn

@falkTX: Done.

I have removed the experimental plugins from latest git.
Please update the PKGBUILD for it.

Changes are:
1. remove zita-convolver, zita-resampler, clxclient, clthreads dependencies
2. remove EXPERIMENTAL_PLUGINS=true from the make steps

Thank you.

Great, thanks! I'll be less lazy next time :)

Yes, just built the package successfully myself.

I reported upstream and falkTX fixed. it builds now.

SpotlightKid commented on 2017-11-21 15:15

This is a git package. Breakages from time to time are to be expected ;)

Better to report these upstream:

There are some changes going on right now in the repository to add BSD compatibility, which may have introduced build failures. I'd just wait for things to settle down for a few days...

The build() fails with a compilation error:
../includes/CarlaNativeJack.h:272:16: error: ‘ENODATA’ was not declared in this scope
return ENODATA;

When EXPERIMENTAL_PLUGINS=false is set in the PKGBUILD, it compiles fine, but probably misses the compatibility to the carla-bridges-win.

Actually, carla seems to work fine without and I can import from PyQt5.QtSvg in python.

Do you get any actual errors without it?
