@laichiaheng - kodi is bound to a specific version of ffmpeg which is generally older than Arch's package. We avoid incompatibilities by using that specific version (ie internal ffmpeg). Recommend that you build kodi in clean chroot. See:

I wrote a script that automates much of that called clean-chroot-manager offered here in the AUR.

@graysky @ilikenwf

Thanks for taking up on the FindThreads Issue

Was able to compile by downgrading my build container to$repo/os/$arch

pacman 6.0.2-7, cmake 3.27.5-1, make 4.4.1-2

@graysky @m10r I brought it up on the actual RFC thread about adding those flags:

Here's my workaround - replace the lines after the configure options:

  # makepkg is breaking the -Wl,-z,pack-relative-relocs ldflag for cmake's FindThreads
  export LDFLAGS=$(echo "$LDFLAGS" | sed 's/-Wl,-z,pack-relative-relocs//g')

  echo "building kodi"
  cmake "${_args[@]}" ../"$_gitname"

This particular flag, when it works, just makes the resulting binary a little bit smaller and more organized, it isn't really to do with security, so removing it should be fine.

@ilikenwf - recommend you take this to the forum or open a task against pacman.

Just trying to build Kodi 21 RC2 and running into same Error mentioned by ilikenwf concernig:

Could NOT find Threads (missing: Threads_FOUND)

Just wondered if there are allready updates to simplify/fix the build process

Thanks for any Info

Note that the most recent makepkg.conf upgrade adds pack-relative-relocs to the LDFLAGS, and while it should support the flag, cmake can't successfully FindThreads within makepkg, specifically.

CMake Error at /usr/share/cmake/Modules/FindPackageHandleStandardArgs.cmake:230 (message):
  Could NOT find Threads (missing: Threads_FOUND)
Call Stack (most recent call first):
  /usr/share/cmake/Modules/FindPackageHandleStandardArgs.cmake:600 (_FPHSA_FAILURE_MESSAGE)
  /usr/share/cmake/Modules/FindThreads.cmake:226 (FIND_PACKAGE_HANDLE_STANDARD_ARGS)
  CMakeLists.txt:166 (find_package)

If I source makepkg.conf and run it outside makepkg and replicate the PKGBUILD build steps by hand in the console, it works...not sure why, would love some help understanding and fixing it though.

For now I have this prior to calling cmake:

  # makepkg is breaking the -Wl,-z,pack-relative-relocs ldflag for cmake's FindThreads
  export LDFLAGS=$(echo "$LDFLAGS" | sed 's/-Wl,-z,pack-relative-relocs//g')

See my latest post, but removing the flag is effective and acceptable.

Since Nexus is more or less EOL'ed, I switch kodi-stable-git to track the Omega branch. This package will continue tracking master. Thanks for letting me know.

kodi-git gets 22 from master now, any way to have Kodi 21 RC 1 etc somewhere else.
