Great, thanks! When setting the path to /tmp he asks for a sudo password though and then fails with

==> Installing missing dependencies... sudo: effective uid is not 0, is /usr/bin/sudo on a file system with the 'nosuid' option set or an NFS file system without root privileges? ==> ERROR: 'pacman' failed to install missing dependencies.

Did you also encounter this problem?

I guess it can be used multiple times, but I have configured it to recreate the chroot every time (-c option) and to build in RAM (/tmp) since I've started using it

Thanks for the hints! It's highly counterintuitive that the command markdown is in a package called discount, I was sure to have no markdown on my machine, but I was wrong...

Another offtopic question: Is /var/lib/archbuild/extra-x86_64/ created by extra-x86_64-build only once and is used by subsequent extra-x86_64-build calls for other packages or is there a new clean one for each package? As it takes 1,7GB disk space and I am low on disk space already. :)

I checked and it looks like it builds just fine without markdown, so I removed it.

markdown package has been renamed to discount and is needed to build this package

  • You're welcome to build in a clean chroot before uploading to ensuring needed depends and makedepends are met, for convenience using extra-x86_64-build from devtools package
  • please rename the source with $pkgname-$pkgver.tar.gz:: to be non-conflicting (especially for users of shared source destination)
  • please use provides=(gmusicbrowser) conflicts=(gmusicbrowser)

Sorry for the delay. I checked and it looks like it builds just fine without markdown, so I removed the markdown makedepend. Regarding the gtk3 version, I think, this would need to be a whole new package, something like gmusicbrowser-shimmer-git. Might look into it at some point.

I wonder if markdown is specifically required due to the Shimmer patches, as the vanilla gmusicbrowser doesn't list this makedepend. I will check this asap. Also, I think, there is a commit making the patch work with the gtk3 version, so it might fix the build problems I had in 2020 and therefore it might be a good idea to switch to the gtk3 branch:

Missing makedepends: markdown.

The gmusicbrowser package's direct dependencies are still available, though.

I don't know if this one is still needed or not. Maybe it could be considered for deletion.

Adopted and updated to 1.1.16.

I managed to apply the Shimmer patch to (a GTK3 port) but looks like the changes are too big, some icons don't show up any more if the Shimmer patch is applied.

Since I don't use this package anymore I stepped down as a maintainer so that someone else can take a better care of it.

Cheers :)

@PhotonX Do you mean gstreamer0.10 or gst?
