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.

[grayson@htpc ~]$ pacman -Qs libpng

local/libpng12 1.2.56-3

I am compiling Carla with EXPERIMENTAL_PLUGINS=true removed.

@GraysonPeddie: I sadly can’t reproduce this. Could you show me the output of `pacman -Qs libpng`. That said you can fix this problem by removing the `EXPRIMENTAL_PLUGINS=true` lines from the PKGBUILD. If we can’t figure this out, I’ll update the package and remove them, but preferably I’d like to figure out why it’s failing for you.

I cannot install carla-git:

This has been fixed upstream ( the package currently builds fine on an up to date Arch Linux system.

Looks at non-git version of carla (, there is described problem that is related with this, I think. Carla cannot be built as a result of some GCC v6.1.1 update. I tried to downgrade gcc to v5.3.0-3 and compilation was successfull although there was some problem with linking against libc or something libc related.

The bad thing for me is: I wanted to use it tommorow for some live action :)

@tkoham That log is missing the actual error message. It should be somewhere before the part that you pasted.

tkoham commented on 2016-05-14 11:22

I cannot for the life of me get this or the stable version to install

On an up-to-date system, using the default dependencies, I get the error:

shoudn't python-pyliblo be an optional dependency to run carla-control?

SpotlightKid commented on 2016-01-07 13:50

Just a heads up: I had to update libgig-svn and linuxsampler-svn (which I hadn't done in a while) to compile carla-git as of today otherwise I got undefined references at the linking stage.

Ralf_Mardorf commented on 2015-08-28 08:25

Yes, libpng12 was build yesterday as a dependency of carla-git and I always build in a fresh extracted directory from the tarball.

Culprit is EXPERIMENTAL_PLUGINS=true, removing it solved the issue.
