For anyone having airwave crashing on you: downgrading the Steinberg SDK to steinberg-vst36 3.6.7-1 seems to fix all crash related issues for me.

hi, I just wanted to let you know there’s been a recent commit to master which should make airwave make working with wine 5.8+.

Ah, apparently psycha0s was paying attention. He merged my pull request. It should build fine now :)

This seems to be a Wine issue. See

It seems to go away when you disable Link Time Optimization. Discussion about that here: and ran into the same issue and they fixed it by adding "-DWIDL_objidl_generated_name_0000000C=" to the CXXFLAGS

Did a pull request upstream:

I have a problem installing after about 28% in

@mlaqts yes, I have glibc.

In fact, I solved the build problem. If someone wants to know how. When I received another error that pointed to a library containing "include_next", I changed "include_next" to "include" in it, it helped, but this is a very ugly solution imo.

mlaqts commented on 2019-01-06 01:06

@alvafox Do you have glibc installed?

$ pacman -Qo /usr/include/stdlib.h
/usr/include/stdlib.h is owned by glibc 2.28-5

alvafox commented on 2018-11-27 08:28

Hi, I have a error when trying to build this:

/usr/include/c++/8.2.1/cstdlib:75:15: fatal error: stdlib.h: No such file or directory

include_next <stdlib.h>


Does anyone know how to resolve this? On the web I'm finding information about this issue:

Maybe some hacks on the source code or adding Cmake flags might help?

Hi, when I build this package I don't get the toolbar in airwave-manager... (it was there on older versions) anyone knows how can I fix this ? thanks !

I made instructions for those of you having issues with the wine layer not rendering the window entirely, or even resizing issues I have heard about. Might or might not resolve graphical issues entirely if you run into them.

Good day!
