You should just build in a clean chroot then. ;) And I don’t have gst-plugins-bad on my system, I avoid it as much as possible. :p

Totally agree, I just wanted to clarify that if you have vulkan-icd-loader installed ( dependency of gst-plugins-bad ) which most likely everyone has then the build process fails for reason described below... Sorry for the noise and thanks for the package.

But vulkan-icd-loader is not a dependency of this package currently, because building with vulkan is useless without shaderc, and also because vulkan is a second class citizen in mpv.

vulkan-icd-loader contains vulkan.pc, which makes mpv think it can build against Vulkan. However, the headers required to actually do so are in another package, vulkan-headers, for whatever reason. Building with only the former installed will fail. So if we see the .pc installed, make sure the headers are too.

Sure, done.

Can you add 'mpv' to the 'conflicts' and 'provides' arrays? Thanks.

ArchangeGabriel commented on 2015-10-01 21:54

No idea about that, sorry.

By the way, since the libcaca issue is fixed I’m going to remove my old comments to keep the history clean, please do so too.
