@Alkaris frankly I don't remember anymore. In any case it builds even without, so I've commented them out.

@bittin pls don't flag git packages as outdated unless manual changes are required to PKGBUILDs.

Why is it when this packages goes to install it tries to find a directory called /data in the users home directory? When it gets to check() line in the PKGBUILD you have;


because later in the build process it tries to look for /data and it can't find it because it's pointing to /home/user/data which simply does not exist. Changing this line entirely by commenting it out simply doesn't help at all, and fails to build anything as a result. Pamac doesn't know what to do with the directory it can't find. Pacman doesn't know what to do with a directory it can't find, and neither can Trizen figure out what to do with a directory it can't find.

It's main base package Cheese doesn't seem to work properly anymore because when it tries to open a video data stream it just creates an infinitely growing file which doesn't stop until you either A run out of disk space, or B terminate the application.

@archisman: error was from upstream, gone as of now.

Fails during meson checks with the following error. Works after disabling the meson tests in the PKGBUILD. I can provide the detailed error log if needed.
