Please do not flag this package as out-of-date if the only change you need is to update to a newer version.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

With the move of xorg-xwayland into optdepends it needs to be additionally added to makedepends else it won't have any effect. Optional depends aren't pulled while building. And upstream states: xwayland (build-time only, optional at runtime). So it needs to compile the support.

Edit: Nevermind. It did just take a bit of waiting.

Updating this bumps the version up to wlroots-git 0.18.0.r6693.5dd614b9a-1 at the moment. And building sway-git complains about it needing a versions lower than 0.18.0. Is this a case of me just needing to wait a little until the versions match again? Or is manual intervention required? Sorry, I'm inexperienced when it comes to building packages.

It would be nice to include the displaylink patch

The whole discussion

It’s making wlroots working with Displaylink/evdi

Install AUR libdisplay-info will fix the problem.

Run-time dependency libdisplay-info found: NO (tried pkgconfig and cmake)
Looking for a fallback subproject for the dependency libdisplay-info
Message: Required for the DRM backend.

needs libdisplay-info as a dependency

This does not need a dependency on vulkan-validation-layers. After WLR_RENDERER=vulkan works fine without that package.

@teacher4711 you may enter src/wlroots-git and run git checkout xxx to that specified version of commit

Use git log to show all commits

Build with makepkg -e to apply changes. Without -e makepkg will re-extract everything

Sorry for asking, but:

The package version is: pkgver=0.16.0.r5511.e59f4d4f

The build version is: wlroots-git 0.17.0.r5921.4ff46e6c-1

river-git needs 0.16 - Can I force building 0.16?

Thanks for maintaining the package!

Cheers Michael

Some how meson was not installed as a dependency:

==> Starting pkgver()... /home/user/.cache/pikaur/build/wlroots-git/PKGBUILD: line 55: meson: command not found ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in pkgver(). Aborting...

@q234rty should be fixed now.
