Could you change this package to conflict with alvr-git? Think it's supposed to, probably just a typo.

alvr.patch was committed on 13 September, so the master branch now installs with no issues on a fully updated Arch install, including the latest vulkan-headers.

I installed ffmpeg-vulkan first, then changed the alvr PKGBUILD thus:


# patch --strip=1 --input=$srcdir/${pkgname}.patch

It all compiled & installed without any problems

@Baconator alvr.patch includes a fix (from this PR, you can build it with latest vulkan-headers

Baconator commented on 2021-10-08 06:41

The build instructions for Arch say: "vulkan-headers must be downgraded to the earliest 1.2.x version. On arch, you can install "downgrade" from the AUR".

I'm assuming this package does not downgrade vulkan-headers by itself. Is the user supposed to do it themselves or have you had success building with the latest headers?

I have stuttering image with h264 and i believe it’s normal since it uses your cpu, if i’m correct. But as for h265 (hevc) it purely doesn’t work for now with nvidia drivers on linux. So don’t be surprise cuz it’s normal…!

Yep I'm already using h264 but still have stuterring image. On h265 I have a black screen or some artifacts.

Instead of choosing HEVC encoder you choose the x264 one. And if i’m correct, this one uses the CPU instead of your integrated GPU (for the stream, at least),

Nathan67 commented on 2021-09-28 20:26

@SpidFightFR how does you use software encoder?

SpidFightFR commented on 2021-09-28 20:20

Works well, tho HEVC encoder doesn’t work (yet) with nvidia gpu, so you’ll have to stick with software encoder. (Upvoted)
