If you are interested in a well integrated vcvrack (eventually in the [community] repository), built with system libraries from a verifiable source tarball, please do voice your concern in this issue and/or this pull request. It seems upstream only considers changing anything, as soon as enough customers complain.

What a thread !!! I'm happy I didn't bought modules. Time to uninstall.

The author of VCVRack has just restricted the discussion on the issue of packaging to contributers only, basically silencing any more opinions and concern on that matter from the community.

@pha-qu likely you only need to recompile the package, would be nice if flying-sheep bump pkgrel for that

More fun Rack not working, the libGLEW package dependency was recently updated, but if you run it from console you will see: ./Rack: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

You'll need to create a soft-link with ln to get Rack working for the while, and depressingly Andrew Belt is making his motives very clear on GIT... $1600.00 for an additional 1/2 an hour at the most. Do you think I/we should request a refund for the VCV branded plugins I/we have paid for (for me that's Scalar, Console, Spectra, and Host)

I just sent a orphan request, since @dvzrv hasn’t responded in a long time

@flying-sheep: I just tried your PKGBUILD, and yes, it builds. But that's not the PKGBUILD that's in AUR... (And 'vcvrack-fundamental' seems to have even worse problems.)

Try my PKGBUILD in this comment:

@flying-sheep: I'm not sure what you're saying. I was using yaourt before, presumably that starts with a clean directory. I tried it by hand ("git clone", "cd vcvrack", "makepkg -si") and got the same error. I even tried "cleaning" the directory after the clone ("rm -rf .git .SRCINFO") and still got the same error.

@stevefolta if you mean mine: you need to clean the directory before building, then it definitely does.

Doesn't build:
