It possible to modify the PKGBUILD to remove the dependency. Why don't you do that?

For most use cases Xwayland is essential for Steam and other software.

I hope he doesn't make it optional, it'd be like asking for French fries without salt. Only the outliers like it that way

Please add 'git' to makedepends. It's not in base-devel.

Disowned by me. I don't have enough experience yet to be maintaining packages. Sorry.

As written, this package should have xorg-xwayland as a dependency. The binary is built expecting the library to be present (-Dxwayland). If xorg-xwayland is not installed, the binary crashes at runtime because it is unable to create an Xwayland session.

That said, ideally the Xwayland dependency would be optional. I prefer to run without it, so I've been editing the PKGBUILD to remove -Dxwayland.

It finally does work and install now.

I pushed a fix to build the package cleanly again.

However I'm going to disown this package: the lack of nvidia support in wlroots means I can't realistically use it.

This package still fails to build even with the patch. Might be because of this https://github.com/ifreund/river/issues/270#issuecomment-829324655

Same error as euclio, are you sure the dependencies are right? More importantly, could you fix this package? (see also: https://github.com/ifreund/river/issues/270)
