@camwebb, thanks for bringing this up. No reason not to include full support for all opcodes. I noticed that hdf5-related opcodes also weren't being supported properly either.

While csound built fine for me, CMake disabled building of the python opcodes, because it could not set PYTHON_INCLUDE_DIR and PYTHON_LIBRARY to 2.7 with Python3 installed as well, despite the directives in the distributed files. I tried setting these in the AUR Custom.cmake, but it kept on failing. Finally I edited the PKGBUILD directly:

cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr -DPYTHON_INCLUDE_DIR=/usr/include/python2.7 -DPYTHON_LIBRARY=/usr/lib/

and it finally builds the python interface. Yeah!

@spaceships: Could you provide a use-case that would demand an added dependency to this package? I just don't have any experience with needing that package and would like to keep it as light as possible.

"jsoncpp" should be a dependency. Thank you for maintaining this!

Thank you

mitchk, gmm is listed as a makedep, so any helper you were using would have nabbed it. If using just plain makepkg, you're required to build all AUR packages yourself.

Thanks ainola for the quick response. Just for reference, I don't know if this is intended, but I had to install gmm separately before I was able to build csound successfully.

mitchk, your repos are out of date. Update your mirrors with `pacman -Syy`

When I tried to build csound I received the following dependency error.

error: failed retrieving file 'luajit-2.0.4-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz' from : The requested URL returned error: 404
warning: failed to retrieve some files

Thanks for bringing this to my attention, OverArch. This issue can be seen here:

It has been fixed in git and I've applied a patch until they next put a release out. For now, enjoy the freshly baked 6.06.
