@etrigubam, @alumni: Sorry about that, everything should be working now. Thanks for the heads-up.

Same as @alumni. Removing the -Dbuildtype=release from the PKGBUILD fixes it, but I'm not familiar if the buildtype of release is necessary over plain.

==> Starting build()...
+ exec meson setup --prefix /usr --libexecdir lib --sbindir bin --buildtype plain --auto-features enabled --wrap-mode nodownload -D b_lto=true -D b_pie=true spot-0.1.10 build -Doffline=false -Dbuildtype=release

ERROR: Got argument buildtype as both -Dbuildtype and --buildtype. Pick one.

meson@0.57.1-1 complains about the buildtype parameter that is passed twice - once in the arch-meson script and once in PKGBUILD

@kart23 @itsKia2 Not seeing either of those issues on my machine, can you post your entire build outputs?

Uninstall your Rust installation and download the Rust toolchain from

Then try and re-build

The developers of Rust recommend this way of installation as shown in the Arch Wiki

builds successfully but in the end, check() fails due to a timeout and spot-client isn't installed

Getting the same issue with zvariant, I'm using the same rust package as you.

I can try and test it again by reinstalling the extra/rust package.

Either way it seems like an issue on my end.

Thanks for doing the hard work! @dpeukert

@rojo That's weird, I'm not having any issues when building using the default extra/rust package from the repos.

Build error when compiling 'zvariant'

Make sure to install rust from the rust toolchain here
