This information is in the .install, but I'm going to sticky it here.

For Chromecast functionality:

1) Verify avahi and nss-mdns are installed.

2) Append "mdns4" to the end of the "hosts" line in /etc/nsswitch.conf.

3) Enable and start both avahi-daemon.service and avahi-daemon.socket.

If this still doesn't work, check your hosts line in /etc/nsswitch.conf. Mine looked like the following:

hosts: files mymachines resolve [!UNAVAIL=return] dns myhostname mdns4

So I changed it to the following:

hosts: files mymachines resolve dns myhostname mdns4

This fixed the problem for me.

How reliable is that source? Why not patch original in PKBGUILD prepare() function?

In addition to comment from @Celti from 2019-11-29 07:58 - In case you got mdsum check fail - please use --skipchecksums for makepkg.

the whole steps to make things happend:
1. clone repo
2. edit PKGBUILD
2.1 change source to source=(" deb" "gpmdp.desktop")
2.2 change md5sum to md5sums=('85675d8b409a75223839fe5f7a6ecc49' 'b776561dd313eb1ded6356247cfffa89')
3. try to makepkg
4. in case check sum error - use '--skipchecksums' for makpkg

builded in that way today. everything works fine.

The new latest CircleCI build artefact is at:

You can always get the latest by going to the CircleCI build page, finding the latest successful build, taking the build number (currently #3718), and inserting that number into the URL at the beginning: e.g., replacing the 3718 in the URL above, or the 3667 in my post from earlier this month.

For the record, complaining at the maintainer of the AUR package here is not going to help anything, and pinning what is supposed to be a stable package to an arbitrary build artefact with potential to disappear is not recommended. What needs to happen is a 4.7.0 release, so go pester the developers to do that.

That artefact is gone now so there's no work around to make this work any more.

Dear @BrianAllred

Since maintainer of GPMDP is not able to release a tagged version that fixes SIGSEGV for months I kindly ask you to update the PKGBUILD to contain working (untagged) version as suggested by Celti in comments here on AUR.

Thank you

@Celti Can confirm that fixed it. This package should be updated. It has been broken for months.

EvilBenFranklin commented on 2019-11-13 00:00

@Celti - This took care of it for me as well. Thank you!

CWRau commented on 2019-11-08 22:02

@Celti That fixed the segfault for me! Thank you!

YeahSure commented on 2019-11-08 21:28

That fixed my library hang. Thank you.

Celti commented on 2019-11-08 07:04

To bypass the current segfault issue and the media library hang, use the following source and md5sum:
