@B3l3tte Thanks for the help. I was planning on getting to it this week-- I haven't really worked with the new AUR-- so I'll get this in ASAP. Need to update my studio in any case.

I have updated the PKGBUILD for the 1.3 sourceforge version.
It's available here :

I have also submitted a PR on their github to prevent some compilation errors :

- source gives you 404 (moved from google-code to sf)
- new version available (1.3)

No changes, just moved to AUR 4.

Alright, update to my package from last year, as darkice is still on 1.2. Only change is I added armv7h since I use it on my modified chromebook.

I'll go ahead and adpot this one and bring my changes in.

I have an updated taurball here:

What's changed:
- added support for resampling and opus
- removed rc.d file
- moved /etc/darkice.cfg to /etc/darkice/darkice.cfg
- created a service file that allows for multiple config files (e.g. "systemctl enable darkice@main" for /etc/darkice/main.cfg
- it has the raspberry pi "armv6h" in the available ARCHs.

Probably not perfect, but it works so far. I can confirm that darkice works well on an rpi. I'm encoding a 128k and 64k MP3 *and* a 32k opus stream all on the pi, with some CPU room to spare. And I haven't even played around with performance settings yet.

Re-tested alternative architecture: ARM6h
Raspberry Pi is *NOT* too slow for live encoding even MP3 and OGG simultaneously.
Stuttering audio reported earlier was caused by faulty USB audio driver.
