General comment for users that get this x265 error when upgrading their system:

installing x265 (3.4-1) breaks dependency '' required by ffmpeg-mmal

Long story short, the simple solution is to remove ffmpeg-mmal, upgrade the system, then rebuild ffmpeg-mmal again.

Today when I try to upgrade the system i get: :: ffmpeg-mmal: installing libx264 (2:152.20171224-1) breaks dependency '' :: ffmpeg-mmal: installing x265 (2.6-1) breaks dependency '' Any idea?

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

@fmang Any chance to add armv6h support?

fmang commented on 2017-10-08 09:56

@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.

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.
