@Niklas. Matter of opinion I guess. a) not everyone is even using makepkg directly b) the option applies to all potential dependencies as well, which might be wrong c) setting it once in the PKGBUILD benefits the many vs. the single one if I use --ignorearch My PKGBUILDs get any arch which seem useful to someone. No harm in asking.

@rtfm3514 use makepkg --ignorearch/-A when building on Arch Linux ARM. Much easier than asking every single maintainer

thanks for maintaining this package.

Could you add "armv7h" to the supported architectures, please? The package builds and works fine on my Raspberry Pi 2/3.

Thanks a lot, rtfm3514

Source server seems to be down. Has this been down for a bit? Found a backup that works

Passes the checksum.

New version available:

No changelog anyway.

'armv6h' is added, but no further support can be provided by me for this architecture. Thanks for letting us know traeumerle.

Builds and works paerfectly on my raspberry pi unter arch armv6h so adding armv6h to arch would be cool ;-)

Thanks Christian

Look like DTV_DVBT2_PLP_ID have been deprecated, to fix the problem DTV_DVBT2_PLP_ID_LEGACY should be use.
To fix compilation add just before make :

No such problem here.
Make sure that your system is up to date.
