@fastgunner thanks that fixed it

not sure what version of Arch you are on but I'm using garuda and I had to go into the cava/config file and uncomment the source to use pulse with auto. It looks like the new update added a check for pipewire so if you are using that, you will need to tell it to use whatever your audio engine is instead.

It seems that the today's update is broken for me Outputting : 'Linux kernel module "snd_aloop" does not seem to be loaded. Maybe run "sudo modprobe snd_aloop".'

Hi, I believe cava is not an any package since ldd shows lots of platform specific links:

@Weakuser I don't agree with you,

Note: The group base-devel is assumed to be already installed when building with makepkg.
      Members of this group should not be included in checkdepends array.

Weakuser commented on 2022-11-14 00:09 (UTC)

@funilrys please add makedepends=('autoconf' 'automake' 'm4') because not everyone installs the entire base-devel group

baltazar commented on 2022-04-25 22:16 (UTC)

xxd is no longer required, so the vim dependency can be removed

ringo commented on 2022-04-17 18:31 (UTC)

xxd-standalone and vim are in conflict (xxd)

TechXero commented on 2022-04-17 13:27 (UTC)

getting error during build

./ line 14: xxd: command not found ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
