update x264 to 155, solved. but, g++: error: unrecognized command line option ‘-Wduplicated-branches’; did you mean ‘-Wduplicated-cond’?

@andrewSC Thank you for fixing this.

Interesting, I pulled that line in the last commit and didn't look much past the package building successfully. I'll add it back in once ff dev edition is done compiling on my machine. Good eye dbermond :) thank you.

Since today I've started to receive this error when upgrading the package (error occurs at system install time when running the post-transaction hooks):

(5/5) Updating the vlc plugin cache...
call to execv failed (No such file or directory)
error: command failed to execute correctly

This error occurs because the files that were installed at /usr/lib/vlc are being installed in /usr/libexec, and the pacman hook cannot find the file /usr/lib/vlc/vlc-cache-gen. I could not find any recent upstream change that may lead to this. It seems to be something Arch/system related, but as far as I can gather I do not have made any change on the system that may cause this. Building the package in a clean chroot also leads to the same error.

I could fix it by adding this to the configure options: --libexecdir='/usr/lib'.

@andrewSC Thank you!

dbermond: You're correct! Oversight on my part--terribly sorry. Should be fixed now.

@@andrewSC Thank you for implementing this. Isn't --with-kde-solid needed?

andrewSC commented on 2018-08-27 12:50

dbermond: Definitely can/will, it may be a day or two though!

@andrewSC kdelibs was dropped from the official repositories [1] and is now on the AUR. As a result, vlc package from official repositories also dropped the usage of kdelibs as a dependency [2] [3].

Could you please implement this change here too?
