Runs nicely on ARMv7, if you want to add that in.

To follow up on my previous post, I tried shortwave again today and realized that it needs pulseaudio to work.

Just noticed, the arch needs to be set correctly, for example:

diff --git a/PKGBUILD b/PKGBUILD
index 5c17aa6..bf52c87 100644
@@ -5,10 +5,10 @@
 pkgdesc="Find and listen to internet radio stations."
+arch=('x86_64' 'aarch64')
 depends=('gst-plugins-bad' 'libhandy0' 'libsoup' 'gtk3')

This package is definitely not platform-independent... !

Apologies, mine is a Manjaro issue (no libhandy0 yet).

Xyne commented on 2020-10-20 18:57

I'm not sure why yet, but makepkg installs libhandy instead of libhandy0 when resolving dependencies.

I also still have the same problem as before when attempting to play any radio station:

Failed to set pipeline to playing
Failed to connect: Connection refused

Can you please try building this in a clean chroot to determine what's missing from the package? I suspect that it relies on something already installed on your system.

ValHue commented on 2020-10-20 16:09

So it's in the extra repository ..

Are you using makepkg -s to resolve dependencies for you?

Moilleadoir commented on 2020-10-20 15:35

Resolving dependencies...

@ValHue, Thanks, now it compiles and works as it should!

ValHue commented on 2020-10-18 10:51

It must be because of my rust configuration but it compiled correctly and I disabled Jonathon's handy.patch, sorry. Now it should compile without problem.

Libhandy is not necessary to compile it, as it is downloaded from the source branch, just like many other packages. Libhandy0 was necessary for its execution and until now I had not realized it because by default it is installed by other packages that I have installed by default.

No matter how clean you want to leave a development environment, a package always slips into you ... thank you for your contributions.

That's because handy.patch is no longer applied in prepare() - it is still needed to fix the upstream source's now-missing branch.
