As far as I know, that's not possible.

Hi, each time I want to update sway-git I track down compile errors just to find out I have to build wlroots-git again. Is there a way to build wlroots-git automatically in advance?

SirCmpwn commented on 2018-11-02 15:30

No thanks, this deliberately tracks wlroots-git.

Hi, SirCmpwn! Since wlroots has a 0.1 and I've made a package in the AUR, would you kindly update the depends() to use wlroots instead of wlroots-git?


SirCmpwn commented on 2018-10-25 14:27

This package tracks master, it already has the 1.0-beta.1 changes.

Rebuild wlroots-git and sway-git should build fine (worked for me).

Build fails with error:

Just a small suggestion, seeing journal entries swaylock[1214]: pam_tally(swaylock:auth): Error opening /var/log/faillog for update swaylock[1214]: pam_tally(swaylock:auth): Error opening /var/log/faillog for read

apparently setting setsuid (chmod +s) on /usr/bin/swaylock 'fixes' it.

Isn't this package the same as the already existing one?
