Small update for all users: I have taken over the cmus-git package, and have updated the PKGBUILD to bring it entirely up to date with the latest git revision, and have updated the dependencies to match that of the package's official PKGBUILD, albeit while keeping the optional OSS plugin dependency. I don't recommend using OSS over ALSA / PulseAudio however, but I thought I would keep it there since this package is on the AUR as is the OSS package. I have also updated the install() function to install ZSH autocompletions. If cmus has bash completions as well please let me know as according to the official PKGBUILD there is only autocompletion support for ZSH.

why did you flag this out of date?

If you do that, people without those dependencies installed might be having problems building it.

Updated PKGBUILD to new pacman builtin git support and changed to github source.

cmus needs to fix its problem playing alac encoded m4a/aac files since ffmpeg update

Btw, I know a PKGBUILD like this isn't perfect, but personally I find such PKGBUILDs very handy. Sure, the way I posted it, namcap shows this

# namcap cmus-git-20130610.1538-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz
cmus-git W: Dependency python2 detected but optional (programs ['python2'] needed in scripts ['usr/share/doc/cmus/examples/'])
cmus-git W: Dependency bash included but already satisfied
cmus-git W: Dependency flac included but already satisfied
cmus-git W: Dependency libvorbis included but already satisfied

Usually I'd then remove those dependencies, but these are just warnings. So I think it's okay do do it this way.

I created a PKGBUILD which enables you to do custom configs to build cmus the way you want.

Also, since this package didn't get any updates for more than 3 years: I'd like to adopt it. So adekoba, if you are still active, please either update or orphan this package. I'll give you 2 weeks to respond (according to the guidelines of the AUR) until I'll ask the mailing list to give me the package.

Until then, here's my PKGBUILD:

I use this configuration. Do you guys think it's a valid default?

This gitorious repo is obsolete, please use GitHub one( ) instead.

Please, fix PKGBUILD because there is a bug there for a while.

Obvious solution:

-#if (LIBAVUTIL_VERSION_INT < ((51<<16)+(5<<8)+0))

I've got Build error:

ffmpeg.c:463:51: error: 'AV_DICT_IGNORE_SUFFIX' undeclared (first use in this function)
ffmpeg.c:463:51: note: each undeclared identifier is reported only once for each function it appears in

Any suggestions?
