@nagual Sure. I cannot test it for you though.

@fmang Any chance to add armv6h support?

@bemeurer No problem.

I don't have the hardware to test that aarch64 support though. This package also depends on raspberrypi-firmware, which might cause problems. Could you confirm it works?

Could you add Aarch64 support?

Updated to 3.3.4.

The openjpeg dependency is now mentionned upstream, along with a patch I've included here too.

openjpg seems to be a dependency for building ffmpeg-nmal now.

kalsan commented on 2017-08-16 09:49

Currently update fails again with message as described below:

ffmpeg-mmal: installing x265 (2.5-1) breaks dependency ''

A painful but working workaround is to uninstall ffmpeg-nmal by installing ffmpeg and then upgrading, and finally re-installing ffpmeg-nmal after cleaning the cache.

I've got this error during build:

ffmpeg-3.3.1.tar.xz ... Failed (unknown public key B4322F04D67658D8)
Error: One or More PGP signatures could not be verified!
Error: Makepkg was unable to build ffmpeg-mmal.

Does anyone else have this problem?

Thanks nini for reporting your problem, with a solution on top of it!

This is strange though. The x265 package does mention in its provides array, so this shouldn't make a difference.
Besides, this is what upstream does. I'll try to reproduce your bug, and if I manage to, you might have found a bug in the official PKGBUILD.

Upstream sources for reference:

I couldn't upgrade my system anymore because of issues with ffmpeg-mmal and x265, so I removed both and installed to the newest version of x265, which, when trying to install ffmpeg-mmal again, still resulted in the same error:

warning: cannot resolve "", a dependency of "ffmpeg-mmal"
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)

I have changed the PKGBUILD, so ffmpeg-mmal depends on x265, not – now it works. Not sure if that's a sustainable solution though.
