@rustemb libpng is now a dependency

rustemb commented on 2021-09-11 20:54

Add, please, libpng as required dep

That works.

@ParaSait i have added static to the build see how it works out now

Hmm, I thought it would be fine, but it's looking for when trying to run it. If you compile with mt32 support enabled, meson will automatically fetch and build that as a subproject to be built. But installing it from that is probably not a good idea as it would then introduce a conflict with the munt package.

Going by the dosbox-staging readme, if you add "-Ddefault_library=static" to the meson setup, mt32emu (as well as fluidsynth) will be statically linked, and then it works without the munt package. Either that, or you just re-instate munt as a mandatory dependency. (I'm not sure which of the two options would be best practice for an AUR package, tbh...)

EDIT: I did a little bit of homework on this, and I found that on arch linux, the meson package contains a "highly opinionated" wrapper for use in arch linux packaging, called arch-meson. arch-meson invokes the meson setup with "--wrap-mode nodownload". From this, I gather that it's most likely discouraged to rely on meson automatically fetching those subprojects. Therefore, probably munt should be an explicitly listed mandatory dependency in the PKGBUILD.

@ParaSait there you go

Could the new dependency on munt be made optional?

sharkwouter commented on 2021-07-06 20:37

I'm going to disown this. I'm not using Arch on any of my machines at the moment, making this hard to maintain.

here is a PKBUILD diff patch to the latest update and to fix the switch from autotools to meson though it requires different make depends such as ninja and meson

Would it be possible to add munt to enable MT-32 emulation?
