For some reason, when i try to install this, libgl and mesa get pulled, despite not being specified in the PKGBUILD. I can't work out why, but it does seem to make the package pointless...

FFMPEG 4.0 breaks the current stable release of zoneminder, stick with 3.4 if your using it.

Presently, I can build fine, but not install.

warning: cannot resolve "", a dependency of "ffmpeg-headless" :: The following package cannot be upgraded due to unresolvable dependencies: ffmpeg-headless

This is even with libvpx installed. Am I doing something wrong?

I think another pkgrel bump is in order, given that's happened in the official repositories too.

Also people who use this package should vote for it so that it gets moved to the official Arch repos and this is no longer an issue :)

I use aurutils, which creates a private pacman repository for packages from the AUR. This means the package can't just be easily rebuilt and reinstalled - the pkgrel needs to be bumped to trigger this sort of update, or aurutils won't even pick up that a rebuild needs to happen or let you perform it.

It does make sense to depend on a specific version, for what it's worth. It's not a tricky thing. It's just that when installing the packages you're building manually (rather than adding them to a private pacman repo), you'll still have to use pacman's -d flag when updating x265.

You will have to ignore deps and upgrade x265 and then rebuild ffmpeg-headless. WARNING: ffmpeg-headless might be broken until you rebuild!

pacman -Sy; pacman -Sd x265; rebuild & reinstall ffmpeg-headless;

(It has always been this way, I've not bumped the pkgrel in the past because it seemed mostly pointless. I can stop depending on specific versions of x265 but this is how it is in the upstream package. I assume there must be a reason for it)

I don't think the pkgrel bump did it for me. I manually updated ffmpeg-headless, but I still get on pacman -Syu:

:: ffmpeg-headless: installing x265 (2.6-1) breaks dependency ''

Even though I don't see that specific so version in the PKGBUILD for ffmpeg-headless...

djmattyg007 commented on 2017-12-20 21:03

Could you please bump the pkgrel to trigger a rebuild against the latest version of x265?

Looks like openjpeg 2.3 broke API again, should be resolved.
