@trizen: Please read comments below.

Please add 'vulkan-headers' to "makedepends". Otherwise the build fails with the following error:

[ 40/445] Compiling osdep/timer-linux.c

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.

ArchangeGabriel commented on 2018-05-13 10:06

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.

carlitos commented on 2018-05-12 21:42


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.

@ubone: Sorry, that’s a mistake, should have been changed in

Should now be fixed.
