You may add "upower" to the build dependencies.

sebalis commented on 2016-06-27 12:39

The version you get from Git these days calls itself 2.1.0-alpha-pre, and with 2.1.0 the program handles M4A/AAC in a stricter way which means that many M4A files will not play even after following romein’s comments below.

I found and did the following in the build file to get things to work:

• appended faad=1 ffmpeg=1 to the two scons command lines, just before “install_root=”
• added 'faad2' 'libmp4v2' to the dependencies list as before

I believe that some ffmpeg dependency should also be registered. I have ffmpeg and ffmpeg2.8 on my system and opening M4A files works. As I am unlikely to ever remove ffmpeg I probably won’t run into trouble even without telling the package manager about the dependency. Browsed the Git source available at briefly to see whether Mixxx comes with its own version of ffmpeg but didn’t find anything. I did find a source comment that says “Supported version are FFmpeg 0.11-2.x and Avconv 0.8.x-11.x | FFmpeg is multimedia library that can be found | Avconv is fork of FFmpeg that is used mainly in Debian and Ubuntu that can be found”.

@m0r13: Very likely, thanks for the heads up.
I'll double check in the next few days

Hey, I just had to install hidapi aditionally as scons was complaining that libusb was not found (was internally also looking for libusb-hidapi which is apparently in hidapi package). I guess that should be part of the dependencies.

Updated dependencies and build flags for 2.0

Gimmeapill commented on 2015-12-09 08:52

The 2.0 RC shouldn't affect the master branch (unless build is broken of course - doesn't seem to be the case here).
It does however affect
The pkgbuild will be updated as soon as the 2.0 branch gets tagged (not the case at the time of writing).

@jlebleu: thanks. Dependencies updated.
- added rubberband
- removed vamp-plugin-sdk (already brought in by rubberband)
- removed mp4v2 (as per romein's comment it won't work anyway without the explicit build option)

For the multi threaded build, I'd rather leave it up to users to set it up system wide in makepkg.conf ( as it would otherwise break the build for users with single core/thread cpus.

jlebleu commented on 2013-12-30 16:55

It depends now on rubberband.

romein commented on 2013-11-17 09:36

if you want aac/m4a support,
add ('faad2' 'libmp4v2') to the depends' list
remove them from the optdepends' list
and append faad=1 to scons lines like
scons qtdir=/usr/lib/qt4 prefix=/usr faad=1 install_root="$pkgdir/usr" tuned=1

Note: you also can add the -j option as explained here

Merging into mixxx-git.
