@alphazo, can you incorporate the suggestion from @adriatic from 2024-02-19 in your package?

@dreieck you should be able to safely symlink to the produced library. in other words adding something like the following to the end of the package() function:

ln -s "${pkgdir}/usr/lib/"

the library version is based on the output of git describe and the rtl-sdr-blog fork uses different git tags so the versions look entirely different but in practice they don't seem to have truly diverged just yet (ymmv!)

This package seems not to be a drop-in replacement for the package rtl-sdr:
With rtl-sdr-blog-git, build of gnss-sdr-git fails with linking errors like

/usr/bin/ld: /usr/lib/ undefined reference to `rtlsdr_get_xtal_freq'

(See ↗ this comment in the package gnss-sdr-git from 2024-02-15 for complete error report.)

Installing rtl-sdr from the Arch repositories makes gnss-sdr-git building.

When I after that switch back to rtl-sdr-blog-git, launching gnss-sdr-git fails with

gnss-sdr: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
