@spaceships: Could you provide a use-case that would demand an added dependency to this package? I just don't have any experience with needing that package and would like to keep it as light as possible.

"jsoncpp" should be a dependency. Thank you for maintaining this!

Thank you

mitchk, gmm is listed as a makedep, so any helper you were using would have nabbed it. If using just plain makepkg, you're required to build all AUR packages yourself.

Thanks ainola for the quick response. Just for reference, I don't know if this is intended, but I had to install gmm separately before I was able to build csound successfully.

mitchk, your repos are out of date. Update your mirrors with `pacman -Syy`

When I tried to build csound I received the following dependency error.

error: failed retrieving file 'luajit-2.0.4-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz' from : The requested URL returned error: 404

Thanks for bringing this to my attention, OverArch. This issue can be seen here:

It has been fixed in git and I've applied a patch until they next put a release out. For now, enjoy the freshly baked 6.06.

Csound 6.05 requires <= Boost 1.58 library headers to compile (at minimum 1.52).

Because Arch uses a newer Boost Library (1.60 currently), compilation will fail.

I tested an *unchanged PKBUILD*, temporary replacing the Boost 1.60 headers in /usr/include/boost with those of Boost 1.58 headers and then it completes compiling without Boost warnings or errors.

The compiled Csound 6.05 fully works (Boost 1.58 headers not needed during runtime).

Note that in the downloaded 6.05.0.tar.gz, there is a file: ./src/csound-6.05.0/dependencies/ which seems to indicate which library versions are ideal to compile CSound against.

So according to that file, Boost 1.52 headers might be ideal, but I can confirm I had no issues with compiling against only the Boost 1.58 header files.

Thanks for bringing this issue up, pankid. It's been fixed upstream now and for the meantime I've applied a patch until the next release is issued.

It turns out that the latest glibc update was the culprit, so it broke under my nose.
