I confirm, it's fixed for me :). i've updated the PKGBUILD as I could not wait the aur update : (x64 only)

I just saw an update to this not too long ago:

The error handling bug has been fixed in 1.0.79

Anyone else having trouble playing local files? Got all the optional dependencies installed for local file playback.

this update also broke spotify for me with, exactly with the same consequences as burk3 explained. I didn't backup my built packages .. Lesson learned :)

@burk3 Yes, it's exactly the same for me. Until a little while ago I was able to run the Spotify app via snap, but even that doesn't work for me anymore ...

I'm seeing the same issue as @macfly, even after the upgrade. For me, the app opens its window and starts fading from black. After the fade is done (or almost done), it freezes, outputs the following lines on stderr, and dies:

terminate called after throwing an instance of 'boost::exception_detail::clone_impl<boost::exception_detail::error_info_injector<boost::system::system_error> >'
  what():  set_option: Cannot assign requested address
/usr/bin/spotify: line 3: 17677 Aborted                 (core dumped) /usr/share/spotify/spotify "$@"

The only other interesting info in stderr happens at the very beginning:

/usr/share/spotify/spotify: /usr/lib/ no version information available (required by /usr/share/spotify/spotify)
/usr/share/spotify/spotify: /usr/lib/ no version information available (required by /usr/share/spotify/spotify)
/proc/self/exe: /usr/lib/ no version information available (required by /proc/self/exe)

Some googling seems to indicate that there is a SO versioning mismatch between the loading executable (spotify) and the SO trying to be loaded ( I tried reinstalling both spotify and libcurl-gnutls to no avail. I also tried calling spotify directly (avoiding the now useless LD_PRELOAD since spotify moved off the libcurl-compat libraries (i.e. links against versioned SOs)) to no avail.

Is anyone else experiencing this? Any ideas on how I can fix this?

EDIT: I've also tried running via snap (like @hheld) to no avail.

@juloo: change the PKGEXT variable in /etc/makepkg.conf to something a different compression or remove the compression competently if you are building packages for local usage


See more in makepkg.conf(5) man pages (man makepkg.conf)

The final package is pretty huge (218MiB) and the compression step is slow

@fernandes, it's broken change package file to:


SHA256 is 0698d2dbda43f2866d2a6f6ed9816bf8022aa8cf67d0dba347f486410093e1a4
