Dependency wxgtk is causing needless problems. Cloning package from AUR and manually editing PKGBUILD and .SRCINFO removing wxgtk from the dependencies did solve the dependency issues and makepkg -si went on to compile and ultimately installed fine.

@rethus's issue seems to be related to the patch, I suppose it's in german (apologies if I'm wrong), but whatever language it is, it's not a language I have sufficient knowledge to make much sense of the messages. Still, trying to skip the patch resulted in some errors related to wrong number of arguments (I suppose Konflikt means conflict and Deklaration refers to some declaration/statement, but I didn't see anything that might be related to number of arguments in the logs posted here).

Anyway, the fix for me was fairly simple: - Install opencv and wxgtk3 if you haven't already; - Clone AUR Repo for eviacam; - Edit PKGBUILD(And possibly .SRCINFO, I did 'cause I like maintaining consistency), removing wxgtk from the dependencies; - Run makepkg -si; - Confirm installation of eviacam; - Done.

Hope this helps others with troubles installing this package.

Same here, like pfspace described... never ending loop of verifying dependencies.

Can someone fix this please?

If I try to compile it myself, make stops with this error:

Can't compile. It enters in an eternal loop "verifying dependencies".

Trying to compile from source also does not work:

This is a vital app and should be on official repositories.

Thank you.

Dependency wxgtk is not needed, since wxgtk3 is used. (namcap also says that wxgtk is not needed.)

I was able to manually compile upstream (2.1.4) using ./configure --with-wx-config=/usr/bin/wx-config-gtk3

Haven't progressed to getting it running though as v4l2-loopback based on ffmpeg on IP webcam running on my old Android phone was introducing too much of a latency for my liking. As soon as I grab some proper USB webcam I will try to get that PKGBUILD going.

It appears that /usr/local/share/man is empty. Moving it to /usr/local/share/man.bak make the tricks and let it works.

I got the following error when installing package after build. error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files) eviacam: /usr/local/share/man exists in filesystem Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.

In order to be able to build this package, I had to use "--with-wx-config=/usr/bin/wx-config-2.8" in the ./configure line, otherwise the package tries to build with wxgtk which is version 3 now, and it fails. Of course, wxgtk2.8 needs to be added as a depends and wxgtk removed. Also, the patches could be updated (they don't fail, but they have fuzziness).

Thx Thomas by the contribution.

Hi, they removed 2 constants from V4L, so it doesn't compile anymore. If you just remove them (the don't seem to do anything anyway) it works. Here's the patch: and updated PKGBUILD: I also created a source-package, so feel free to upload it:

SanskritFritz thanks to your modifications. I was not aware of new behaviour of pacman.

SanskritFritz commented on 2013-05-11 19:57 (UTC)

That is because this PKGBUILD is using deprecated methods prior to pacman 4.1. Use this one instead:

Hi, thanks for packaging eviacam. Not a big deal, but || return 1 isn't needed anymore.

Thank you rustam for the patch and changes in PKGBUILD.

rustam commented on 2012-05-31 19:27 (UTC)

Hey, I've managed to compile it after adding the following includes to src/visionpipeline.cpp, #include <cv.h> #include <cvaux.h> also had to supply opencv libraries to the ./configure script, LIBS="-lopencv_core -lopencv_legacy -lopencv_imgproc -lopencv_highgui -lopencv_objdetect" I've added these small patches to PKGBUILD, please take a look and update the package.

A mi me sale el mismo error en otro lado.

No puedo compilarlo a traves de yaourt y tampoco de manera manual, arroja el siguiente error motiontracker.cpp: En la función miembro ‘void CMotionTracker::TrackMotion(CIplImage&, float&, float&)’: motiontracker.cpp:213:53: error: ‘cvCalcOpticalFlowHS’ no se declaró en este ámbito make[2]: *** [eviacam-motiontracker.o] Error 1 make[2]: se sale del directorio `/home/user/eviacam-1.0.1/src' make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1 make[1]: se sale del directorio `/home/user/eviacam-1.0.1' make: *** [all] Error 2

Please, add wxgtk to dependencies list, had to add in manually.
