Indeed, my spdlog was outdated, sorry for the noise.

@vertebrate I tried building a clean copy and it completed without issues.

Can you try doing a full system update and remove pkg and src directories before building the package?

vertebrate commented on 2023-09-10 03:06 (UTC)

The build fails with /usr/include/spdlog/logger.h:374:75: error: cannot bind non-const lvalue reference of type ‘bool&’ to an rvalue of type ‘bool’

@FabioLolix That you for your suggestions!

I added the simpler pkgver function, and switched the cmake release type (don't see any adverse effects so far).

Can you clarify about "adding ${pkgver} to provide is not needed"? I have provides=(gerbera) here, but that seems to be explicitly suggested in VCS package guidelines.

  • A standard pkgver like git describe --long --tags | sed 's/^v//;s/([^-]*-g)/r\1/;s/-/./g' is enough, see
  • about cmake release type, None is suggested by the wiki (if available)
  • adding ${pkgver} to provide is not needed
  • Just FYI when you added epoch, epoch=1 was enough

@dreieck Thank you for your suggestions! Updated the PKGBUILD with these fixes.

Does it really need to depend on libupnp-git, i.e. explicitly the -git variant?

It was the case previously (libupnp in the repos was much older) - but seems that now it builds fine with stock libupnp.

Some comments on your PKGBUILD (thanks for the maintanence work, btw.!):

  • Does it really need to depend on libupnp-git, i.e. explicitly the -git variant? Is libupnp not sufficient? (libupnp-git should provide libupnp, if not, write a comment that the provides-entry should be added.)
  • You could add -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release.
  • There is some "official" package version available: git describe --tags reveals currently v1.9.2-123-g2d03e26c. So, please use the part currently reading 1.9.2-123 as first part in $pkgver. pkgver() then could look like:
  pkgver () {
    cd "${pkgname}"
    _ver="$(git describe  --tags | sed 's|^v||' | sed 's|-[^-]*$||' | tr '-' '.')"
    _rev="$(git rev-list --count HEAD)"
    _date="$(git log -1 --date=format:"%Y%m%d" --format="%ad")"
    _hash="$(git rev-parse --short HEAD)"

    if [ -z "${_ver}" ]; then
      error "Version could not be determined."
      return 1
      printf '%s' "${_ver}+r${_rev}.${_date}.${_hash}"

which currently yields - Then you also can add =${pkgver} to the provides-entry. - Don't forget to increment $epoch when changing package versioning scheme.

You could see my package gerbera-nosystemd-git for references.

Awesome, thanks!

Rogach commented on 2020-05-06 14:19 (UTC)

@kyak Done.

Can you please enable AVCODEC (File metadata) and FFMPEGTHUMNAILER (Generate video thumbnails) by adding these options to cmake:


And adding these packages to depends: 'ffmpeg' 'ffmpegthumbnailer'
