Manjaro is spam here, and the maintainer already said he can't install a different distribution just to support some users. Manjaro users: Please refrain from making further comments and use Manjaro support channels instead.

Could you add v4l2loopback-dkms as an alternative dependency to v4l2loopback-dc-dkms, since either of those packages will do the job?

@invidian Yes that seems to be the cause for my problem. Removing it via modprobe -r snd-aloop brings my internal soundcard back. For now I decided to just remove snd-aloop from /etc/modules-load.d/droidcam.conf and try to use my internal microphone instead of the one of my smartphone.

invidian commented on 2021-01-20 17:09

@patchcard2 perhaps this is because we load snd-aloop kernel module?

patchcard2 commented on 2021-01-20 17:01

For some reason, after installing this package ALSA did not recognize my internal soundcard anymore: snd_hda_intel 0000:00:1b.0: cannot find the slot for index 0 (range 0-1), error: -1

@maximbaz thanks for explanation! I replaced ../.. with ${srcdir} then.

maximbaz commented on 2021-01-14 16:37

@invidian: it fails as hexhu describes when you build in isolated environment in chroot, e.g. install devtools package and run extra-x86_64-build.

I would suggest avoid using relative paths and just use ${srcdir} in place of ../../

invidian commented on 2021-01-14 16:31

@biker The link is correct. We build multiple packages using single repository, as the source of both packages is the same.

invidian commented on 2021-01-14 16:31

@gbc921 did you try loading v4l2loopback or v4l2loopback-dc kernel module? Because the former is indeed provided by "v4l2loopback-dkms" package and the latter is provided by "v4l2loopback-dc-dkms".

@hexhu I've tried building the package in Arch Linux Docker image (Dockerfile in this package repository) and things work just fine. How do you invoke package building so you hit this issue?

==> Starting package_droidcam()...
/dev/shm/makepkg/droidcam/src/droidcam-1.7 /dev/shm/makepkg/droidcam/src
install: cannot stat '../../droidcam.desktop': No such file or directory
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package_droidcam().

for 1:1.7-1.

Please change line 55-56 of PKGBUILD to

  install -Dm644 "../${pkgbase}.desktop" "$pkgdir/usr/share/applications/${pkgbase}.desktop"
  install -Dm644 "../${pkgbase}.conf" "${pkgdir}/etc/modules-load.d/${pkgbase}.conf"

as a fix.

Also v1.7.1 has just been released, which dropped 'appindicator' (systray icon) support.
