Updated package. Builds in clean chroot. Tested with a video.

If you have any issues with this package, rebuild in clean chroot before reporting.

To find packages that need to be rebuilt, run check-broken-packages (from aur/check-broken-packages-pacman-hook-git).

Related issue: extra/python-pytorch/14

Below error is encountered for normal execution, and it works again after rollback the python-pytorch-opt-cuda (2.3.0-2 => 2.3.0-1)

I am not sure if it's the problem of whisper, just leave this workaround for your reference.

@schaefer I would search for potentially related open and closed issues at github/pytorch. This issue might be worth watching: HIP error: shared object initialization failed

@xiota Here is complete output:

@schaefer Would depend on the cause of the problem. Could you put a full log in a pastebin?

@xiota true, thank you, just verified working status with python-pytorch-opt. It does not work anymore with python-pytorch-opt-rocm though, which means no GPU for me. Can you point me to where I should look for/open an issue?

@schaefer This package is working with python-pytorch. There may be some problem with another package. Something may need to be rebuilt or an issue reported somewhere.

Stopped working with the latest arch update to rocm 6.0.0

@mapatrapa Package builds and works fine on my computer. You probably need to rebuild.

Since the last rocm packages update from the official archlinux repositories, whisper has not worked again, I get core dumped when load the model. May be whisper-git need an update?
