If you are interested in a well integrated vcvrack (eventually in the [community] repository), built with system libraries from a verifiable source tarball, please do voice your concern in this issue and/or this pull request. It seems upstream only considers changing anything, as soon as enough customers complain.

Super quick and dirty fix for the pffft 404. Add this line in prepare of the pkgbuild right before git submodule update:

egrep -lRZ '' . | xargs -0 -l sed -i -e 's/https:\/\/\/jpommier\/pffft\/get\/\/\/\/web\/20200621214837\/https:\/\/\/jpommier\/pffft\/get\/'

What's the status of this package? I'm still getting the 404 for pffft. I can obviously run vcvrack without installing, but it would be helpful to have a properly installed package.

The pffft issue was fixed last month but upstream hasn't published a new tag with that fix, so builds like this AUR package are stuck using the most recent tag 1.1.6 (published in Nov 2019).

I filed an issue upstream for upstream to publish a new tag.

I also tried to modify the PKGBUILD to build against the 1 branch just to get something working, but that doesn't build successfully (and I don't have time to dig into it right now).

The build fails because it gets 404 when trying to download

What a thread !!! I'm happy I didn't bought modules. Time to uninstall.

The author of VCVRack has just restricted the discussion on the issue of packaging to contributers only, basically silencing any more opinions and concern on that matter from the community.

@pha-qu likely you only need to recompile the package, would be nice if flying-sheep bump pkgrel for that

More fun Rack not working, the libGLEW package dependency was recently updated, but if you run it from console you will see: ./Rack: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

You'll need to create a soft-link with ln to get Rack working for the while, and depressingly Andrew Belt is making his motives very clear on GIT... $1600.00 for an additional 1/2 an hour at the most. Do you think I/we should request a refund for the VCV branded plugins I/we have paid for (for me that's Scalar, Console, Spectra, and Host)

I just sent a orphan request, since @dvzrv hasn’t responded in a long time

@flying-sheep: I just tried your PKGBUILD, and yes, it builds. But that's not the PKGBUILD that's in AUR... (And 'vcvrack-fundamental' seems to have even worse problems.)
