@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

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)

getting error during build

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

Betal commented on 2022-02-10 19:30 (UTC)

Add makedepends=('libpulse' 'portaudio' 'sndio'), if we build cava in a clean chroot, it get built without support for them.

checking for pa_simple_new in -lpulse-simple... no
configure: WARNING: No pulseaudio dev files found building without pulseaudio support
checking for Pa_Initialize in -lportaudio... no
configure: WARNING: No portaudio dev files found building without portaudio support
checking for sio_open in -lsndio... no
configure: WARNING: No sndio dev files found building without sndio support

For anyone who gets an error message like this

./ line 10: aclocal: command not found
./ line 11: autoconf: command not found
./ line 12: automake: command not found
/tmp/yay/cava/PKGBUILD: line 19: ./configure: No such file or directory

Keep in mind that you have to install base-devel package group to use makepkg command to build package from PKGBUILD file.

automake and autoconf need to be added to makedepends.
