I'm getting the following error when updating either cava or cava-git:

/usr/bin/ld: cava-cava.o: undefined reference to symbol 'LINES'
/usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/8.1.0/../../../../lib/./ error adding symbols: DSO missing from command line
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status

EDIT: Fixed by installing ncurses-full-git, but fails on a standard ncurses.

@funilrys Problem wasn't during the aur build, but a runtime error.

$ cava
cava: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Rebuilding the aur package solved the problem for me, probably because it linked against the newer version of iniparser.

Hello @Tofu_Bone @kmacleod, I can't reproduce your issues ...

@Tofu_Bone I have the same problem. Re-installing with a forced package rebuild fixed it for me.

Hi, Since the iniparser update, cava won't work. It produce this error:

cava: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

tried build from source and it worked. Please update

Thanks for feedback @ibrokemypie.

Before every update, I personally build the package on 2 different computers so I don't understand why I don't have such issues ...

You're diff suggest that we should remove the line with: `sed -i 's;/usr/local;/usr;g'`
But the current version of the PKGBUILD (Please report to or don't have such line ...

Have a nice day/night,

Fun Ilyrs

issue is upstream, however the following diff allows this to build fine

@marcin thanks + fixed

Before installing, install this
sudo pacman -S iniparser

Without this, the following errors occur

/usr/bin/cava: line 202: cd: /tmp/yaourt-tmp-mwo/aur-cava/src/cava-0.4.2: No such file or directory
gcc: error: cava-cava.o: No such file or directory
gcc: error: /tmp/yaourt-tmp-mwo/aur-cava/src/cava-0.4.2/iniparser/.libs/ No such file or directory

Also its worth installing pulseaudio as cava works with it by default. With only alsa, there is some teawking to do.
