The music of the game should be selectively set

We would appreciate if you add Aur package

Music packet:

With today upgrade to 481.fe9fd2e-1 version, DreamChess abort without any message at "Start game" (after "New game...") during the "Loading please wait" message, with no error message, neither in the terminal nor in sudo dmesg nor in journalctl -b.

(I'm on Manjaro 18.0.4, Xfce stable, kernel 4.19.66-1, with user namespaces enabled by kernel.unprivileged_userns_clone=1 in /etc/sysctl.d/00-local-userns.conf for compatibility with last AUR skypeforlinux-stable-bin version).

Edit: I have this error message :

ERROR: Error reading DCM file (/var/tmp/pamac-build-h2/dreamchess-git/src/dreamchess/dreamchess/src/gui/ui_sdlgl_3d.c:286)
in ~/.dreamchess/dreamchess.log

Edit 2: same behavior, even with user namespaces disabled.

Edit 3: same behavior with today update to 483.7cd1ce3-1 version.

Edit 4: same behavior with today update to 484.b55b9d6-1 version.

Now it's good with DreamChess 476.1769262-1 no notification to upgrade... ;=) Thanks

Ok, all this package does is pull the git repository and build it at the latest revision. the 'version number' is dynamically generated based on the pkgver() function in the pkgbuild. it appears that the git history of dreamchess has been changed, so now there are less commits in the history. This is not an issue with the package. To avoid confusion though, i'll update and push the latest version number in the pkgbuild anyway...

With the downloaded snapshot dreamchess-git.tar.gz from :

tar -xvf dreamchess-git.tar.gz

cd dreamchess-git

makepkg -si (in the folder where is the new PKGBUILD file)

Download give me now the dreamchess-git-476.1769262-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz file version and install also the 476.1769262-1 version of DreamChess...

It is the same with :

git clone

cd dreamchess-git

makepkg -si

474, 475, 476... we progress ;=)

@Armag67 ah sorry, I meant makepkg. See for the officially supported method of building and installing pkgbuilds from the aur.

No pkgbuild on Manjaro depository or AUR, but yaourt (that y used few years ago in Archlinux) install the 475.d1d5a19-1 version (always older then the 498.1c68b1e-1). I'm going to try with pkgbuilder... ;=)

Pkgbuilder as well install the 475.d1d5a19-1 version...

And now pamac-manager install also the 475.d1d5a19-1 version...

Same result with with pamac at cli...
