i could not make a working PKGBUILD with your package

Let's talk about that in a personal message.

downgrading protobuf and python-protobuf still works

This depends on the packages one has installed, right? For me it didn't work without holding back other packages (I remember libphonenumber for mumble)

i could not make a working PKGBUILD with your package. do you have a working one? and will your package work with python-protobuf?

downgrading protobuf and python-protobuf still works, so i think this is still a valid solution until upstream fixes the issue

Dear maintainer, please consider adding libprotobuf-compat-32 as dependency to this package as long as ola needs version 32 of libprotobuf.

Does build, but not run because it needs an older libprotobuf than currently delivered by arch.

olad[969]: /usr/bin/olad: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Holding back protobuf at 21.12-2 fixes the problem temporarily.

More info and issue tracking at ola issue 1879

Maybe we need a compat package for that time.

edit: Compat package created

Hi, maybe you should use 0.10 branch because master branch missed some patches to run with python 3.9. You could use : source=("git+")

And you should update the 0.10.6 comment to 0.10.8.

Edit: Not needed anymore. Needed commits have been merged to master.

Someone on that github thread posted a patch which seems to work for me. If you want to try it, you can replace the source line with my fork:

you have to downgrade protobuf to 3.6 until there is support for protobuf 3.7
