@Martchus @fisco, it needs gl or glx, which if you use mesa-git breaks the libtool

@fisco No. I think it was wrong to add the explicitly versioned mesa dependency. The official package also just depends on mesa an hasn't been rebuilt after the mesa update. If you have created the package since the last update, you have to rebuild of course (just to make pacman not complain anymore). I would recommend to drop the explicit mesa version.

@SolarAquarion Why did you add the explicitly versioned dependency? I didn't find any direct use of the mesa libs: for plugin in $(pacman -Ql vlc-nightly | grep '.so' | awk '{print $2}'); do readelf -d $plugin | grep mesa ; done

Looks like it needs to be updated for the new mesa:

:: vlc-nightly: installing mesa (18.0.0-2) breaks dependency 'mesa=17.3.7'

This package is now sync with the regular vlc package. I've kept the additions like (eg. dalaa, libfdk-aac) of course. To distinguish between the regular config and the additions of this package, I've separated the dependencies and configure options using a blank line.

To be able to built this against the latest version of OpenCV, I also needed to add a patch.

Also note that fribidi could be enabled again without hacks like the one in the regular vlc package (sed -e 's|-Werror-implicit-function-declaration||g' -i configure).

Just because I've got notified about the update: I have started to worked on a version of this package which includes the recent changes made in the official vlc package while preserving additions like daala support. I also think fribidi can be enabled again. I'll upload this version when I have tested it.

I have error run vlc "skins2 interface error: cannot instantiate dialogs" and vlc is not running, to solve the problem I added to the pkgbuild "--libexecdir=/usr/lib to pkgbuild", inspired by the vlc-git package

I updated to the latest version (actually just to rebuild against x265 2.7 which is currently in staging).

When doing that, I've noticed that vlc does not support the latest fribidi yet and hence disabled it for know. The vlc-git package seems to do the same. If you really need fribidi, you could try to apply

Ah, great, thanks, it looked like they had taken the server offline for a couple of days due to the 3.0.0 release, glad the source files are back up!

Martchus commented on 2018-02-07 21:10

@maltklaus Asked at #videolan and they instantly fixed it. So it should work again.

Something major is wrong with VLC's nightly server, it serves an HTML file instead of the source - this vlc AUR update should be pulled until the server is fixed...
