It seems that the headphones maintainer has changed their way to draft new versions, prefering keeping a master branch stable with regular fixes without having to release a new version. It has not been confirmed by him but is only my opinion.

I keep this package, but I also created a -git version based on master here: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/headphones-git/

@ldclrcq: it consumes a lot of memory, compared to couchpotato for example (200MB for headphones), but it does not appear to leak anymore.

Is the memory leak problem corrected ?

Okay, glad it's not just me. That's always a bit scary when it isn't duplicated. I've downgraded for now. If nothing comes up, I'll try to upgrade and debug later in the week when I get more free time.

@10479: Yep, same thing for me, but I haven't tried to debug it yet.

Anyone else have a nasty memory leak after the update? I saw an old post on git about it and how to debug it, which I haven't done... But just stopping headphones from running stops the memory leak. I have 32GB and had soaked up 50% of that. I rebooted and the leak continued. I stopped headphones and the leak stopped.

Anyone else?

@dominicm: Sorry, I totally forgot to answer…
The headphones.tmpfile is exactly here to solve the problem you had: it is used by systemd-tmpfiles to create the headphones folder in /var/run at boot (or when doing systemd-tmpfiles --create). It is standard, you do not have to run it.

What exactly does headphones.tmpfile script do (I cant find the source)? When does one need to run it, always or maybe just when upgrading? Doesn't seem intuitive to me at all...

@dominicm: Hello, I will not add a check in my PKGBUILD because systemd-tmpfiles already handles it ;)
Just run `systemd-tmpfiles --create` and then start the headphones service.

I am getting "('Unable to write PID file: %s', IOError(13, 'Permission denied'))" error. Shouldn't everything in /run be owned by root? If not maybe add a directory existence check and chmod it? this is probably because I had headphones-git installed before as I assume the dir is otherwise created with correct ownership.
