Idk what else to do on my systems, so that's what I did about bitstream.

Thanks for fixing the build issue.

@arinlares You're correct, the LLVM 9.0 update in means FAUST conditionals needed to be updated again.

I've updated the PKGBUILD with a patch (for radium's faust.patch :) and opened a pull request upstream:

As for ttf-bitstream-vera fonts, radium displays a warning about it at the start and maintainer claims it's harmless.

I haven't had any issues without it so I didn't include it in the PKGBUILD.

EDIT: It looks like Qt might silently replace fonts that are not installed so for radium to look right I've added the required fonts packages to the PKGBUILD.

I'm getting a failed compilation on the faust package

CMakeFiles/faust.dir/home/arin/Documents/git/radium/src/radium-5.9.74/bin/packages/faust/compiler/generator/cpp/cpp_gpu_code_container.cpp.o -o ../bin/faust -lpthread -L/usr/lib -lLLVM-9

Before make exits, that's the last line, no errors beforehand. I'll get more info if needed. I rolled back llvm and llvmlibs to 8.0.1-3 to see if it'll build, and just rolled back to Radium 5.9.65.

EDIT: It may be LLVM, it just got updated to 9.0.0 recently on the 11th, and I know the work probably needs to be done to patch it for the upgrade.

Just a note, I'm not sure how common the issue is:

If you use a VST in it, and see squares at the top of the VST window, you'll want to install ttf-bitstream-vera. I believe the font is hard-coded to be used, I couldn't change it to another. Installing the font worked.

I had an error concerning faust which was not installed on my system, so I installed it.

faust should have been build during the compile? Radium includes patched faust so I would not recommend having another faust binary in your path.

Try the new PKGBUILD for 5.9.48 version I just pushed. It includes a needed build-fix. I'd recommend building in a clean chroot to rule out your environment interfering.

It failed to build on my part. I used @Teteros curl command to get proper llvm binairies.

First, I had an error concerning faust which was not installed on my system, so I installed it.

Then I got this:

I've tried to remedy the error, but to no avail.

EDIT: Since version 5.9.60 radium supports LLVM8 natively, making this binary redundant.

For your convenience (llvm can take really long to build), I have binaries for the LLVM version required for this package on gist.~~

Quick way to get this dependency before installing radium:

curl -OL && tar xvzf master.tar.gz && sudo pacman -U *-master/llvm40-*.tar.xz

If your pacman.conf requires all packages to be signed, you can add my key for this package to your keyrings with:

curl -sS | gpg --import # for .gnupg keyring
curl -sS | sudo pacman-key --add - # for pacman keyring
sudo pacman-key --lsign-key teteros # to trust key in pacman store

I'm also getting those. I also recently got a notification about someone adopting a package submitted and still maintained entirely by myself. Probably gonna report it as a bug soon, but not today since it's already very late.

While I'm at it, it's true that I've been kinda busy and it's been tricky enough for me to keep track of my own packages. It's getting better though, so I hope I can also start looking after radium again soon. Thanks to Teteros for joining the effort and keeping the package maintained in the last few weeks!

KenjiTakahashi commented on 2018-08-11 22:20

Hm, did you also receive several "package disowned" notifications for this recently? Some kinda bug or what?

I finally managed to compile the package (probably thanks to the new update)

But now it crashes when I try to run it

Following my intuition (idk why) I tried to run it in root and it kinda works

I tried comparing the logs (god why ?) and nothing really caught my attention excepted the sample rate warning so I changed it and it still not run.

I also tried changing the rights, by changing owner, then directly chmod 777, still crashing.

So now I have no idea what to try next so if any of you have an idea for me I'd be glad reading it, meanwhile I'm going to keep searching.

Btw is there a way that the scanning / testing that happens at start crashes on some plugin stuff (vst/ladspa etc..)

Log for giggles:

Some day I'll manage to run this software (one way or another)
