Important Note on AUR packages in general:

For AUR packages, you - as the user installing the package - assume the role that a package maintainer has for regular repo packages.

That means that the responsibility to recompile the package whenever a package B that your package depends on changes. For repo packages, maintainers do this for you and re-release the package with an updated build number (e.g. -1 to -2). AUR mainainers will not do this, because there is no change to the PKGBUILD. You need to recompile locally, whenever this happens.

@Taijian all four complied successfully ~ thanks for all the good work Congrats on the new home.

OK, should build - and then also run - again... Sorry for the delay, we just bought a house...

exiv2-0.27 is the current version in repository and is required by gimp-2.10.10 mythtv 1:30.0-5 requires exiv2-0.26 to run

I can confirm that bigcajun826 patch worked. I was able to build the package and mythtv is working correctly.

Taijian commented on 2019-05-22 22:13

Thanks everyone for bringing the issue and the (probable) fix up - I'll update this as soon as I'm able, but RL has kinda kept me busy these last few days... Sorry!

I think this patch will work until a new mythtv 30 bundle is ready:

Shouldn't have to downgrade exiv2 in Arch with this.

UPDATE: Taijian, feel free to pull from my clone here:

Found the problem with archlinux compilations of mythtv Downgraded package exiv2 (0.27.1-1 => 0.26-2)

RuneArch commented on 2019-05-22 08:41

Reverting to exiv2 0.26-2 worked for me, until that Myth commit makes it's way into the AUR package.

Compilation has failed me today with an up to date system. Possible culprit could be this commit (maybe it should be reversed):

Thanks for your reply, bigcajun826.

Yes, I know about updating AUR packages, these were build-time, not run-time, errors, and I had updated everything else and rebooted.

What has worked for me is git-cloning the mythtv repo from AUR again and running makepkg --cleanbuild --install as you suggested.
