I had been fighting the issue on 2 arm devices (raspberry pi3b+ & odroid-xu4) trying to start the service and finally tried it on my desktop and it worked just fine. I have no clue so far why the service will not start on my arm devices. The only way so far is to manually start darkice from a terminal after logging into the desktop. The service still not start even after logging in to the desktop in a terminal. I have the latest arch installed on my desktop and arm devices.

Create a config file with a unique name in /etc/darkice that ends in cfg and then use that name.

For example if you have a stream called "stream128", you'd create "/etc/darkice/stream128.cfg" and then issue "systemctl start darkice@stream128".

How do you start the service? darkice@WHAT.service

Correction. Works like expected, compiles clean.

Hint: don't mix up your setup by switching between ALSA and pulse. Work with this server/streamer for years. Cheers

Not fixed yet - instead of taking the plague to fix it I'd rather compile from origin.

The latest changes to the PKGBUILD do not work, since the service file does not exist in the master branch of the darkice AUR package (chicken/egg, someone?).

A patch that fixes this can be found at

@B3l3tte committed. Only changes I made are to deps for aacplus.

So, I finally got a fully working PKGBUILD here :

To install properly :

cd && mkdir darkice && cd darkice
pacman -U dark*.tar.xz
cd .. && rm -rf ./darkice

Enjoy :)
