My notion was mostly to, as graysky said, keep in sync with the kodi package from the official Arch repositories.

Kr1ss commented on 2019-04-29 18:19

Are you aware of any packages that still depend on xbmc ?

At least there are none in the Arch repos.

Freso commented on 2019-04-29 18:15

It should probably provide (and conflict with) both xbmc and kodi, really.

Kr1ss commented on 2019-04-29 16:19

Great. Thanks again for your quick reply !

graysky commented on 2019-04-29 16:18

@Kr1ss - It must be ... it's been years since there was an xbmc package I think. Testing a revision to this PKGBUILD now that will restore the versioned provides and also made it to conflict with the repo packages. Will post shortly.

Kr1ss commented on 2019-04-29 16:14

Whoops I wasn't aware that community/kodi even provides xbmc rather than kodi. Maybe that's also not intended...

graysky commented on 2019-04-29 16:09

@KR1ss - I modeled that after the official package.... perhaps it was a mistake.

Kr1ss commented on 2019-04-29 16:05

@graysky Is it intended that the package doesn't provide kodi any more ? This led to conflicts w/ some addons as I tried to install it. Anyways, thx very much for maintaining this package, cheers !

It builds fine now without (clean) chroot. I build it using 'yay'.

@zecakeh - You are right about the patches not applying out of git root so I just pushed 18.2rc1pre5-2 which simplifies your proposed changes by simply running git init in the build dir.

Can someone who reported an issue building outside of a clean chroot please try it outside of one and let me know?
