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.

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

BubbatheVTOG commented on 2019-11-27 03:00

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

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

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

That fixed my library hang. Thank you.

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

The app crashes with a segfault

Seems to be broken causing a segfault, and it hangs on "loading music library ..." when using the different source that @dampkwab menitoned.

Thanks dampkwab, that works.

md5sum for the .deb you linked is c737e4b70f608381b6b54baa83d03b97
