Thebas, could you please provide information regarding the 4.8.5 version of gimp-gap (and possibly a source file)?

ElMastro commented on 2016-11-07 06:56

This is a well known problem. It depends on the vhook part of the ffmpeg package, as alredy stated. It could be fixed if the main branch would be patched, but it should be done by someone who's already working on it, as it regards not only Archlinux. I've witten it on bugzilla yet a few months ago.

Won't compile for me. It runs 3 minutes and stops here:
If I rerun makepkg on the aborted src directory, it finishes(?) and creates a package that I can install. Scary.

Thank for the notice;
I've investigated, and in the PKGBUILD archlinux wiki page it is written that the packages in makedepends should be only the ones "that are only required to build the software".

Nasm will be added in the makedepends as soon as possible (next revision);
all the codecs (libx264,xvidcore,etc) have been listed in the optional dependencies because some users may not want to install them because of the licenses.

Your makedepends includes too little packages, here's the list of required packages.

makedepends=('cmake' 'intltool' 'nasm' 'libx264' 'xvidcore' 'lame' 'faac' 'faad2')

Some of them are in optdepends. In general almost all packages listed in optdepends have to be in makedepends, otherwise the build process doesn't know about them and doesn't include the associated functionalities.

I've tried to make a new version of the PKGBUILD :

This one is built from the unstable branch, but it appears to work. I can't be sure because I've got problems with permissions. Can someone try if it si better than the other one?

frankspace, you're welcome.
However, disabling the libmpeg3 may be a solution, and my version of gimp-gap on my laptop works, but It seems the source has many problems.
I've exposed them on the bug board of gimp, and they suggest we could try to install a (newer) version from git. Actually I'm cheking this possibility, so that if it works, we'll move directly on the 2.8, wich should be actually bug free.

I appreciate your hard work on this. It may just be that unless someone does work on it upstream, it's an unsolveable problem. But I just re-checked the PKGBUILD that I posted previously, and again, it compiles fine on my box and seems to work upon installation, albeit without libmpeg3 (and I admit I don't know how limiting that is, because I actually haven't personally worked with GAP very much, but lots of distros seem to disable it). But without knowing what's different about our respective boxes, I suppose that's not much help.

Bad News.
It appears as the problem is caused by the vhook fuction of libavfilter wich is deprecated. On the second compilation it skips the "make all" and "make all-recursive" part, and that's why it works.
at this point for me it's clear there is a major issue with the source.
There aren't yet answers in the forum, so I don't know what to do.

for doctorcolossus: Thanks, I'll add them when the PKGBULD works.

cmake and nasm should be added to the make dependencies.
