I got error at running yay -S xoscope

/usr/bin/ld: display.o:(.bss+0x90): multiple definition of `font'; xoscope_gtk.o:(.bss+0x10): first defined here
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
make[1]: *** [Makefile:474: xoscope] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory '/home/cassani/.cache/yay/xoscope/src/xoscope-2.2'
make: *** [Makefile:375: all] Error 2
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
error making: xoscope

To be able to complete the build, I remove the line 37 (shown below) from display.c

void    *font;

I get a segfault immediately after starting the program and seeing its window:

(xoscope:14494): Gdk-CRITICAL **: 23:41:00.560: gdk_window_move_resize_internal: assertion 'GDK_IS_WINDOW (window)' failed

(xoscope:14494): Gdk-CRITICAL **: 23:41:00.560: _gdk_pixmap_new: assertion '(drawable != NULL) || (depth != -1)' failed

[1] 14494 segmentation fault (core dumped) xoscope

Is there a way around it? Maybe it is because of Wayland or Gnome?

Thanks for maintaining this!

Please quote your variables: Anyone building this in a path that contains spaces is going to have trouble due to word splitting:

Also, `|| return 1` is no longer needed in AUR packages. If `make` were the fail the package would also.

I seem to be running into the following bug, for which there is a patch.

I get the following:

$: padsp -d xoscope
utils/padsp.c: dsp_open()
utils/padsp.c: fd_info_new()
utils/padsp.c: dsp_open() succeeded, fd=5
utils/padsp.c: unknown ioctl 0xffffffffc0045006
utils/padsp.c: freeing fd info (fd=5)
utils/padsp.c: Draining.
No valid data sources found... exiting
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

See, ioctl is padded with 0xffffffff.

Can the maintainer of this package kindly look into integrating the patch?

Thanks so much!

el_peludo, I don't understand you. What is the problem?

gtkdepre.diff is part of tarball It does not have other location.

Anonymous comment on 2013-08-28 09:11

gtkdepre.diff seems to have vanished from the source location

Ok. I removed esound from dependencies. Thank you for info.

This package doesn't actually need esound to work. If you don't have esound it will work with OSS.

I removed GTK_DISABLE_DEPRECATED. It is curing the symptoms but it works.
