Git clone isn't controlled by the PKGBUILD, unless you have some ancient setup from before makepkg got VCS support. See for the reasons makepkg doesn't do shallow clones on -git packages.

If you do have some reason to want -git packages to clone shallowly, it would probably be easy to hack it into your /usr/share/makepkg/source/

(Or, perhaps, you could make the first clone in the PKGBUILD directory manually, then let makepkg do its local clone of that as usual.)

Just tried this, the random movie player seems broken. Possibly a new change in stepmania/ffmpeg? It doesnt appear to throw errors, just displays a black screen instead of the movie.

The PKGBUILD, as in many -git packages, contains a pkgver() function which updates the version along with the source. There's no need to update the PKGBUILD itself unless there is a change in the build process.

The current upstream version is: v5.0.9.r10.g398fb88-1.

Ah, I see. I've updated the PKGBUILD to revert the breaking commit, which is what we've been doing on our local cabinet here without issue. I'll look into that patch in the future.

The patch I linked to is supposed to be the adjusted version you're talking about; it fixes the double free issue and should work on newer and older versions of ffmpeg. AFAIK it hasn't been merged because they want more testing and because they want to discourage building against system ffmpeg.

djpohly commented on 2014-11-22 21:02

The patch was reverted upstream because it broke other distros with older FFmpegs. If someone can adjust the patch to play nicely with both current versions and older ones, I'd guess it would be accepted fairly easily.

In the meantime, I'll update the PKGBUILD to patch for latest FFmpeg, sometime in the next couple days probably.

I was told that the patch would break other functions, so it was recommended to me to just use the bundled version.

Fighter19 commented on 2014-11-22 11:26

Applying the patch is being told to break other functions at least that was told me in #stepmania-dev. For stable use I'd just suggest do edit the PKGBUILD.

For the bundled version to work after installing, you have to do:

cp -t "$pkgdir/opt/$_shortname" -d --parents bundle/ffmpeg/*/*.so{,.*}

in package().

Alternatively, fixes the system ffmpeg build.
