soloturn: I don't see why you couldn't use libdvdread-git in place of the PKGBUILD I provided, although, it may be less stable than the tagged version/what the PKGBUILD provides.

soloturn commented on 2019-02-23 09:39

as long as libdvdread is not 6.0.1 in arch, can you use libdvdread-git ? tried it and it builds again.

jbkempf from vlc pointed out that it is a "greater than", not "greater than or equal" 6.0.0, hahaha, my blunder. even if mere mortals deal easier with >=

@andrewSC thanks a lot! It built successfully :)

mrturcot: The issue you're running into is because extra/libdvdread is out-of-date at the moment. To make things a little bit easier for you, I've created the updated PKGBUILD which you can find here:

I'd suggest just building that locally, then either installing it in the chroot or if you don't use one, installing on your machine, then building vlc-git.

Also, I worked with upstream to resolve the dvdnav versioning issue so you shouldn't run into that error anymore.

soloturn: Thanks for bringing xosd to my attention. Definitely appears safe to remove at this point!

created ticket, vlc-git used to build a couple of weeks ago, namely commit 4.0.0-dev-6229-g9868c4be81, or vlc-git-4.0.0.r6467.g2f3f44804e. and the version produces less crashes resp X stalls than the ABS version vlc-3.x.

soloturn commented on 2019-02-19 17:54

can you pls remove xosd as dependency? this should not be necessary any more. is not in the vlc package as well.

checking for DVDREAD... no
configure: error: Library dvdread > 6.0.0 needed for dvdread was not found
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
Error making: vlc-git

I had "extra/libdvdread 6.0.0-1" installed

After installing "libdvdread-git & libdvdcss-git" I was able to pass "checking for DVDREAD... yes"

But now getting

configure: error: Library dvdnav > 6.0.0 needed for dvdnav was not found
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
Error making: vlc-git

with "libdvdnav 6.0.0-1" or "libdvdnav-git" installed
