Thanks for feedback @ibrokemypie.

Before every update, I personally build the package on 2 different computers so I don't understand why I don't have such issues ...

You're diff suggest that we should remove the line with: `sed -i 's;/usr/local;/usr;g'`
But the current version of the PKGBUILD (Please report to or don't have such line ...

Have a nice day/night,

Fun Ilyrs

issue is upstream, however the following diff allows this to build fine

@marcin thanks + fixed

Before installing, install this
sudo pacman -S iniparser

Without this, the following errors occur

/usr/bin/cava: line 202: cd: /tmp/yaourt-tmp-mwo/aur-cava/src/cava-0.4.2: No such file or directory
gcc: error: cava-cava.o: No such file or directory
gcc: error: /tmp/yaourt-tmp-mwo/aur-cava/src/cava-0.4.2/iniparser/.libs/ No such file or directory

Also its worth installing pulseaudio as cava works with it by default. With only alsa, there is some teawking to do.

cava is not working for me after install:

$ cava
mkdir: cannot create directory ‘/usr/bin/.libs’: Permission denied
/usr/bin/ld: cannot open output file /usr/bin/.libs/10890-lt-cava: No such file or directory
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status

Perhaps related to this warning during the build?

For those having problem where the visualizer doesn't start after you play a song, change autosens to 0 and sensitivity to 10, don't forget to uncomment those options

shaggytwodope commented on 2015-11-29 04:47

updated pkgbuild,

tho can prolly do without --prefix bit... but yeah lazy.
