I have intentionally continued using the github mirrors for the sources because github has better bandwidth and uptime than codeberg.

The PKGBUILD needs updating too as the following have also changed:


They are now:

FYI the GitHub repo is now a mirror and they have migrated to Codeberg.

Update packages on your system (pacman -Syu) and rebuild.

I have successfully rebuilt this package.

Not sure how I ended up as the maintainer for this, I haven't used Arch Linux in ages. Disowning so that someone who does can pick this up, thanks!

river had been updated to zig 0.11.0 but PKGBUILD file is needed to be updated.

-Drelease-safe should be replaced with -Doptimize=ReleaseSafe

teacher4711, you have to wait for zig 0.10.0 to end up in the arch repositories. Should not be more than a few days. In the meanwhile you can install river (without -git) which is identical to the latest commit, just based on zig 0.9.1.

Hi, I get an error compiling the package:

./build.zig:144:13: error: no member named 'source' in struct ''
            .source = .{ .generated = &scanner.result },

To solve the issue, I updated zig to 0.10 from staging and downloaded alle the necessary dependencies listed there. Compiling now works.

However, now river no longer starts.
