This builds fine for me but when I run with my QHY IMG132E I get the following error : ¨The firmware could not be loaded. The fxload utility was not found.¨

I see fxload is listed as an option in the package - it didnt come up as a Build option on Pamac (Manjaro).

How can I add it?

Does the program include the HEX file for IMG32E or does that need to be added? If so, how?

Many thanks

I've updated to 1.7.0 and added a patch to get it to build. please test and report if you encounter issues.

A bug report and a pull request have also been sent on github to upstream maintainers.

This looks like an upstream error. In any case, I'm not able to update the package now, and willing to disown it if somebody wants to own it.

Oh I didn't see that you edited the message. I do have sdl and libdc1394, I'll add them in the list.

I have no problem building the package, maybe you have a bad version of autotools installed? I have the base-devel package that brings autoconf 2.69-4 and automake 1.15.1-1. Finished making: oacapture 1.4.0-1 (Sat 16 Jun 2018 20:27:28 CEST)

When installing with latest update (pacman -Syu) I get this error when running ./bootstrap:

autoreconf: running: /usr/bin/autoconf --force error: possibly undefined macro: AC_DEFINE
      If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow.
      See the Autoconf documentation. error: possibly undefined macro: AM_PATH_SDL
autoreconf: /usr/bin/autoconf failed with exit status: 1

EDIT: Turns out that an earlier warning indicated something with SDL, so I installed the package sdl pacman -S sdl, and this solved the problem. Also, to avoid Perl warnings I set: LANG=C;LC_CTYPE=C prior to executing ./bootstrap. I guess sdl should be added as a dependency?

EDIT2: In addition (while I'm at it), I had to also install pacman -S libdc1394 in order to do the make. And I manually executed the build commands used in the PKGBUILD with diff from github as indicated by cgarry on 2018-03-22.

The author of oacapture has generated a working PKGBUILD and diff file for the latest version (v1.4.0) of oacapture. These files can be found here:

Can this package be updated to use these files please?

The new version fails to compile its own ffmpeg apparently, this is becoming too complicated for the time I have to spend on it...

vinvin commented on 2016-10-04 00:20 (UTC)

I have updated the package to 1.0.0, using the patch for qt5 given here:
