@funilrys a new release has been drafted with som small fixes. BTW are you notified when a new release is drafted? There seems to be a lot of people here that opens issues on github after downloading this package, even though the fix already exist on the master branch, just not in this package.

@funilrys Never mind, I figured out it was because it's not using ncurses by default anymore, so I just updated the config file to use it.

@pelirodri I always test locally before any push to any package I maintain. Can you give us more or report directly to upstream: ?

@mat: Added :)

I updated it and I can no longer do anything within cava, which is to say I can't quit it, I can't change the colors... no key is doing anything whatsoever.

Missing build dependency on autoconf and automake.

I guess sndio is also a dependency.

pulseaudio souldn't be a dependency but an optional dependency as cava is design to work well with raw standalone holly ALSA. (cava = Console-based Audio Visualizer for ALSA)

I've created a patch for the PKGBUILD that ships the console font that is necessary to run cava correctly in virtual terminals.

Similarly I've also added the example configuration file to /usr/share/docs/cava, which is quite handy.

I'm getting the following error when updating either cava or cava-git:

/usr/bin/ld: cava-cava.o: undefined reference to symbol 'LINES'
/usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/8.1.0/../../../../lib/./ error adding symbols: DSO missing from command line
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status

EDIT: Fixed by installing ncurses-full-git, but fails on a standard ncurses.

@funilrys Problem wasn't during the aur build, but a runtime error.

$ cava
cava: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Rebuilding the aur package solved the problem for me, probably because it linked against the newer version of iniparser.
