Just add --disable-lsr, --disable-soxr, --disable-sqlite and --disable-nfs configure options to your PKGBUILD, and don't forgot to remove redundant depends. You're always can unpack source tarball, check ./configure --help for options which you don't need, then replace "enable" with "disable" and add them to PKGBUILD.

Hi there. Wonderful!!! A great fork of a nice but very fat daemon. Is there any way to cut out samplerate/soxr things and sqlite/nfs (assumed they're not needed for renderer-only purpose, no local content)?

Many thanks from a newbie.

Could you please add 'armv7h' to the arch field so it will work with the later Raspberry models, thanks!

The regular MPD package has started segfaulting in libsmbclient on my Raspberry Pi, so I installed this package. To do so, I had to add 'armv6h' to the arch field in PKGBUILD. Based on my experience, it works just fine and you can add it to the supported architectures.

Also, I note that while your description says smbclient is excluded, the config script will actually include it if libsmbclient happens to be installed on your system. I fixed this by explicitly adding --disable-smbclient to the configure call in PKGBUILD. I don't know if you would want to add this or not, but it made my life better.

Thanks for the build, solved my problem!

Just rebuild the package.

Looks like openal package is required to run, without it I am getting "/usr/bin/mpd: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"

What exactly says mpd when you trying to start it? Also may you upload build log to and paste link there?

i tried to compile it again with the same error. Lame and opus were needed in order for mpd to be able to start.

I recompiled with:

--disable-opus \
--disable-lame-encoder \

and now everything is fine.

>and mpd needed lame and opus to be able to start

Hm, I cannot reproduce it. Have you tried to rebuild this package?

mikes commented on 2014-03-07 14:09

I built it on my rpi and mpd needed lame and opus to be able to start. Shouldn't they be depedencies or am i doing something wrong?

You'll also need the cdio paranoia patch that fixes up the the include path for the header. You'll find it here:

Could you please add the following lines to your PKGBUILD:

Could you please move /lib/systemd/system/mpd.service to /usr/lib/systemd/system/mpd.service so I can update glibc to 2.16.0-2?

There's 0.17 already.
md5sum 06be323c1655d5503912d76786284f30

Also compiles on ARM, so you can add it to architecture.
