FrederickZh: Thanks for the heads up. I checked out aribb24 and it looks kosher so I've added it as a makedep and enabled it in the build. Let me know if you have any issues.

FrederickZh commented on 2018-07-23 02:11 should be an optional build dependency to support ARIB STD B24 subtitles.

I went to the src/vlc directory and did a "make clean" then "make 2>&1 | tee vlc_build_log.txt" (to make you a build log) and the darn thing compiled. Then I stripped out the PKGBUILD so it would build just the vlc package and it installed and vlc works good.

The only thing I had done was re-install fontconfig2.

[ray@arch vlc-git]$ vlc --version VLC media player 4.0.0-dev Otto Chriek (revision 4.0.0-dev-4051-g49dca9c5aa) VLC version 4.0.0-dev Otto Chriek (4.0.0-dev-4051-g49dca9c5aa) Compiled by builduser on arch (Jul 13 2018 18:31:17) Compiler: gcc version 8.1.1 20180531 (GCC)

So I guess I am Good now.

Can you share a paste of the full build here or email me at

I update every day. Usually the errors I am seeing is that some package needed is not installed.

Dark-Sky: Hmmm, I just built this locally without errors? Is your system up to date?

I get a ton of freetype2 header errors.


/usr/include/freetype2/freetype/freetype.h:3574:3: error: expected constructor, destructor, or type conversion before ‘FT_Get_Postscript_Name’ FT_Get_Postscript_Name( FT_Face face ); ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ /usr/include/freetype2/freetype/freetype.h:3605:12: error: expected constructor, destructor, or type conversion before ‘(’ token FT_EXPORT( FT_Error )

Thanks. PKGBUILD command (before ./configure): export LIBS = '- lxkbcommon' perfect

i get this error :

gui/eject.c:50:13: fatal error: scsi/scsi.h: No such file or directory # include <scsi scsi.h=""></scsi>

I'm currently getting errors at link time saying about undefined references to libxkbcommon symbols, like xkb_state_unref. Fixed it by adding this to PKGBUILD (before ./configure): export LIBS='-lxkbcommon'.
