Hi @SpotlightKid, can you please update the git describe in pkgver()? Recently the jack2-control-api-relicense-nedko tag was added to the develop branch, which makes for funny-looking package names. Adding --match="v[0-9]*" to git describe will cure that:

$ git describe --long --tags
$ git describe --long --tags --match="v[0-9]*"

Thanks for your answer Ralf. What I don't get is I still had dependency problems because of this package not providing jack2.

Hi Terence, a lot of pro-audio users, I'm one of them, are in favour of jackd. Also keep in mind, that users might want to launch old audio session scripts, to restore an old audio session. I'm not aware that dbus is the default nowadays, however, even if it would become a default, some users are using Linux for pro-audio for more than a decade, so they need backwards compatibility.

The jack2-git package provides jack, so does jack from community and there is no issue with installing lib32-jack2. Apps depend on jack, never on jack2. This is not Ubuntu where a quasi empty meta-package jackd is a dummy for jack1 and jack2.

What is the reasoning behind keeping jackd now that dbus is the default? (--classic + --systemd-units)

Compilation checks report "WARNING !! mixing both jackd and jackdbus may cause issues:".

@SpotlightKid Well see my comments below. lib32-jack2 needs jack2 and it makes sense because jack2 and jack are different.

An application could depends on jack2 dbus support for example.

SpotlightKid commented on 2019-09-15 17:52 (UTC)

@Terence_ I don't know, should packages really depend on "jack2" instead of just "jack". What are valid reasons for that?

Terence commented on 2019-09-15 13:20 (UTC)

Shouldn't "jack2" be added to the "provides" array?

Terence commented on 2019-08-31 09:46 (UTC)

No worries, you tried to help :)

Ralf_Mardorf commented on 2019-08-31 09:43 (UTC)

My apologies Terence, I should have noticed that it just was a typo, missing the "2". However, the chance that the 32 bit lib might not be required, was a valid thought. Unfortunately you need it. I'm sorry for the noise.

Terence commented on 2019-08-31 09:36 (UTC)

I also edited mine: I didn't paste the log correctly, I'm in fact using lib32-jack2 already.
