Please do not flag this package as out-of-date if the only change you need is to update to a newer version.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.

Got past the problem in my previous comment by disabling freerdp in the PKGBUILD. It's an upstream issue (reported it here

Not sure how much Sway depends on this.

Getting this during the build (fails):

../backend/rdp/peer.c: In function ‘rdp_peer_context_new’:
../backend/rdp/peer.c:256:2: error: ‘nsc_context_set_pixel_format’ is deprecated [-Werror=deprecated-declarations]
  256 |  nsc_context_set_pixel_format(context->nsc_context, PIXEL_FORMAT_BGRA32);

The RDP support seems to giving some people grief - see

Should the freerdp dep perhaps be optional?

aperez commented on 2019-10-17 11:26

@Mel: Thanks for the heads up, the dependency is now added.

Mel commented on 2019-10-17 08:26

wlroots now comes with rdp beckend, depends array should now include 'freerdp' see:

Please add "provides=('wlroots=0.7')" to the PKGBUILD or you won't be able to use this with community sway installed.

@Ferdi265, @swalladge: Thanks for the heads up, I have updated now the PKGBUILD :-)

Ferdi265 commented on 2019-08-09 11:38

Adding to what swalladge said: -Drootston=true also needs to be removed.

swalladge commented on 2019-08-09 00:24

PKGBUILD fails since the commit that removes rootston:

Will need the lines that manually install rootston removed from the PKGBUILD. Thanks. :)

There is a change in mesa-git that caused some issue with glvnd and mesa. There is a bug report

Temp solution is to downgrade mesa-git
