@Huulivoide The configure option --enable-spatial-svc was recently removed from upstream libvpx. Using it now causes this error at configure time: Unknown option "--enable-spatial-svc".

Please add, "$sversion", to the provides. As it is requested by some packages.

Does NOT provide VP10. Please, * remove "--enable-vp10" from the PKGBUILD (it wil fail the ./configure-script), * remove it from the package's description.

Shouldn't this package also provide if using shared libraries?

Deprecated, but still working. There is no reason to mark package out of date.

Hi; I'm not fully clued-in on how PKGBUILDs actually download from git repositories (there isn't an explicit command, after all), but for this repo at least there's an interesting problem that happens. If I just "git clone" the libvpx repo it downloads maybe 20MB or so worth of data, which unpacks to about 40MB. However, when makepkg/yaourt does it while installing this package it downloads over 130MB of data (unpacking to much more). The problem lies in the fact that an additional folder ".git" is being downloaded, which contains their entire git history (which of course is huge). Not sure if this is something that can be worked around by the package maintainer, but if there is a way to not have to wastefully (and time-consumingly) download the un-needed data from a git repo via a PKGBUILD that would be a fantastic addition/modification to this AUR entry. Best regards ~

--enable-psnr is no longer an option to configure.

rafmav it not necasary to add glibc as depency as it is installed on all systsems.

rafmav commented on 2010-12-26 17:43 (UTC)

Very good package. Here are namcap warnings: libvpx-git E: Dependency detected and not included (glibc) from files ['usr/bin/vpxenc', 'usr/lib/', 'usr/lib/', 'usr/lib/', 'usr/lib/', 'usr/bin/vpxdec'] libvpx-git E: Missing custom license directory (usr/share/licenses/libvpx-git) so glibc is to be added in the dependencies list, etc. Again, Thank you

Huulivoide, unohin noi lainaukset tolta riviltä: "if [[ -d (")$srcdir/$_gitname(") ]] ; then" sekä poistaa gcc-libs:in ja glibc:n noista riippuvuuksista, kun toine on base:ssa ja toine base-devel:issä.

Det commented on 2010-11-19 10:37 (UTC)

Fixed & tweaked a bit.

julroy67 commented on 2010-10-16 09:50 (UTC)

Sorry for the wait, I'm not having the time anymore to maintain the package, so I let anyone take it ;)

misc commented on 2010-10-10 16:16 (UTC)

Please change "provides=('libvpx')" to "provides=('libvpx=0.9.2')" (most recent release).

falconindy commented on 2010-06-25 22:02 (UTC)

This package should have a: provides=('libvpx')

julroy67 commented on 2010-06-13 16:39 (UTC)

As you wish, as I'm following the libvpx developpement.

h31 commented on 2010-06-12 18:25 (UTC)

Updated. If you want, I can drop this package to you.

julroy67 commented on 2010-06-10 07:09 (UTC)

Please update the pkgbuild :

I tried to build ffmpeg with new patches, but I had some problems. Looks like fixed libvpx revision is requried. Configure script from ffmpeg-svn didn't work until I copied headers into /usr/include.

wonder commented on 2010-05-28 14:41 (UTC)

i don't see the point on copying the headers into /usr/include. they changed the location and ffmpeg-svn point to the new location

julroy67 commented on 2010-05-27 07:42 (UTC)

Could you update the PKGBUILD to

commented on 2010-05-26 23:03 (UTC)

This fails.

julroy67 commented on 2010-05-19 22:11 (UTC)

Ok, no prob. I think we really should activate arch optimisation via the target option so here is a first one :

h31 commented on 2010-05-19 21:44 (UTC)

Thank you, julroy67! I uploaded your PKGBUILD. I enabled examples, because ivfdec and ivfenc may be useful.

julroy67 commented on 2010-05-19 21:10 (UTC) a working one, and let compile with FFmpeg via --enable-pic
