@Kyuunex It's the same issue. Try to retrieve the PKGBUILD of gnuradio-osmosdr, build it and install the package you built. Finally build gqrx, the issue should be fixed. (Or you can try building gqrx in a chroot with rtl-sdr)

here's the fail log

note: i have rtl-sdr-blog-git installed as it's required for proper operation of my dongle.

@EuphoricCatface This is a normal phenomenon, I have bumped pkgrel when gnuradio was updated, but since the makepkg process lags behind the gnuradio update, pacman will prevent you from updating gnuradio (unless you uninstall gqrx first). A possible solution is to use an repository containing gqrx that is updated at about the same time as the official repository. If you want, I can change this dependency condition to be looser (But it can break the package if dependencies get out of sync)? I sincerely hope that there is a package maintainer(TU) willing to return gqrx to the official repository (or even sponsor me to become a package maintainer).

Pacman complained today it can't update gnuradio because of the dependency of this package. To solve this, I updated the system first with the dependency check ignored (# pacman -Syud) and then reinstalled this package.

I just rembered, what happened. I use gqrx and aisdeco2 and gqrx needs extra/rtl-sdr while aisdeco2 needs that is only available through rtl-sdr-librtlsdr-git so that's probably more of an aisdeco2 issue

@z3hka After trying all the AUR variants of rtl-sdr, I'm guessing you are using rtl-sdr-librtlsdr-git instead of the rtl-sdr from the official repository? It would be better if you tell me this information to save my time.

@z3hka @LunaSquee This is a issue that is easy to solve once but not easy to solve in the long term. Because gnuradio-osmosdr depends on rtl-sdr, you only need to rebuild gnuradio-osmosdr to fix this link error. I have tested it successfully. But in the long term, you need to be careful that your special gnuradio-osmosdr is not replaced by the newer package from official repository and you will need to maintain your own gnuradio-osmosdr updates.

I have the same issue, it seems to be related to the version of librtlsdr.

❯ ls -lah /usr/lib/librtlsdr.*
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 6.4K Apr 27 07:39 /usr/lib/librtlsdr.a
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root   14 Apr 27 07:39 /usr/lib/ ->
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root   19 Apr 27 07:39 /usr/lib/ ->
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 112K Apr 27 07:39 /usr/lib/

so librtlsdr is there but no .2

A terrible workaround that seems to work so far is adding a symlink with ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/ that makes gqrx run for now as far as i can see but is of course a horrible hack and can break at any point

@LunaSquee According to your log, the linker did not find Do you have /usr/lib/ which is owned by rtl-sdr 1:2.0.1-3? rtl-sdr is a dependency of gnuradio-osmosdr and should be automatically installed if you syncdeps.

Also fails for me:
