Heads up, everybody! I've switched this package back from building the "develop" branch to the "main" branch again, since the "develop" branch is now gone. If you re-use your package build directories, you might have to delete the old "carla" repo directory and you also may need to delete the "src" directory before re-building.

@faltkTX: Thanks updated

I'd like to suggest some changes.

1. remove pygtk (nekofilter plugin was removed)
2. move python-pyqt4 to python-pyqt5
3. add qt4 as build dep
4. use 'make DEFAULT_QT=5'
5. allow use non-git linuxsampler

I don't feel like the need for experimental plugins is needed here, so perhaps remove its related dependencies too (clthreads, clxclient, libpng12 and zita stuff)

Not sure if possible, but would be nice to allow ntk-git or fltk.

@SpotlightKid: Thanks, but I still think it’s a better solution to disable the experimental plugins. After all there is a reason they’re marked experimental. I’ll reconsider if there is a high demand for them.

@cocreature: rather than removing the experimental plugins, a proper fix would be patching the Makefile in source/native-plugins and removing the libpng12 dependency. See here:

it's ok today by replacing zynaddsubfx by git version!
Thanks anyway!

@Turbo: Could you please set LANG=C (or LANG=en_US.UTF-8 but that requires that you have the appropriate locale) and try again? I don’t understand the french output. Also it would be great if you could post all output or at least the last 200 lines or so as the error can potentially be above the part you posted.

@GraysonPeddi All right I have pushed an update disabling EXPERIMENTAL_PLUGINS. I guess the name already suggests that problems are to be expected :)

GraysonPeddie commented on 2016-08-07 04:06

Okay. Removing the EXPERIMENTAL_PLUGINS=true lines produced the following output which compiles successfully:

Still compiling right now...

A few minutes later and success! (Couple of minutes later while playing with Carla and forgot to post but now I'm done for the midnight...)
