cirrus: That's not an issue with this package, but it looks like your cower is linked against an older version of libalpm (included with pacman). Try recompiling it and it should work.

As with Cinelli below, libao-svn fixed issues I was having with with libao.conf.

@AbrarSyed :

From pianobar/Makefile:
# choose your libav implementation.
# supported: ffmpeg2.2, ffmpeg2.1, ffmpeg1.2, libav10, libav9


Upstream, since moving to using ffmpeg/libav instead of libfaad2 (, requires that the Makefile be edited to set the variable LIBAV, as there is no good way to detect if ffmpeg or libav are to be used.

Makefile:103: *** Please choose a valid libav implementation by setting LIBAV. Stop.
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

I get the above error when trying to install this with Packer. To my knowledge, I dont have multiple versions of libAV.

I just updated this package to use the new VCS packaging options from pacman 4.1 (, so you'll now need pacman>=4.1 to build it. I also added libgcrypt and gnutls as dependencies.

In case anyone else was having issues with /o\ could not load audio device error's even with libao.conf correct.

libao-svn seemed to fix the issue on my end. Might want to add it to depends array.

No problem, just wanted to make sure you knew.

Are you using pulseaudio? I had the same problem initially; try changing /etc/libao.conf to look like this:

sorry for flagging it, I thought it hadn't been updated since July. I just installed arch (64bit) and when I try to use pianobar I get this error message:

ao_alsa ERROR: Unable to open ALSA device 'default' for playback => Invalid argument
/!\ Cannot open audio device

also cat /etc/libao.conf shows:
