Please do not flag this package as out-of-date if the only change you need is to update to a newer version. It is not needed because it always fetches the sources using Git and uses the most recent version without needing to modify the PKGBUILD — just rebuild the package.

Also, please try building in a clean chroot before assuming that the PKGBUILD is broken.

can confirm the package needs libseat.

@codicodi the PKGBUILD also needs to be edited to enable libseat. Maybe the maintainer should change it?

With merged, wlroots needs libseat for session management. It seams to be available in AUR as

I've updated the package. Everything should be fine, if not don't hesitate to report issues or send patches!

@Rucikir: I have added you as a co-maintainer! Lately I have not had that much time to fiddle with wlroots, thanks for offering to help! :)

Rucikir commented on 2021-03-06 13:49

I could take over maintenance of the package if needed, as I’m already maintaining sway-git, sway-hidpi-git, and wlroots-hidpi-git. You can also cherry-pick the patches for all the issues described below from wlroots-hidpi-git.

It seems xorg-xwayland is also required as a dependency now. Are you still active, @aperez? Do you have any comments?

yar commented on 2021-02-22 00:19

Please depend on xcb-util-renderutil as @ynakao said, and in the future test with makechrootpkg

I think the right fix for the current build failure is to follow wlroots packaging recommendations:

It recommends setting -Dwerror=false to "avoid failing the build on warnings", which is the current cause of the failure.

This package should follow those recommendations.
