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.

@sgfx: I'm aware of that (also this package was already flagged).

I'm a little short on time this week, but will update as soon as I've rebased the patchset against vcvrack.

Sorry removing -wayland and installing -x11 fixed it

Man thanks for maintaining this. I had vcvrack-bin at 0.6.2c-1 installed.

I ran yay -S vcvrack which seems to have successfully removed -bin and installed this version.

But when I go to cd /opt/vcvrack and then ./Rack I get

Could not initialize GLFW.

I have glfw-wayland-3.3.2 installed.

I tried reinstalling and also failed. Any idea? Thanks!

I've started to devendor vcvrack. If you're interested in helping out, there's a github organization for it, which strives to maintain patches for each release of VCVRack. Furthermore I plan to make Rack more FHS compliant, by introducing absolute paths, instead of the hardcoded relative ones, jailing Rack and its components below /opt.

Most of the plugins need ot be fixed properly, to be build from source. Have a look at vcvrack-fundamental for details. Vendoring Fundamental with vcvrack (imho) makes no sense, as the build would always be from HEAD and thus unreproducible.

@pha-qu: yes, the upstream situation is pretty concerning (seemingly using GPL3 as means to get free contributions and to use free services). I will spend the next days doing some devendoring on this package. Sorry, but this might take a little!

I'm fairly certain, that none of my attempts at that will be merged upstream, but we'll see. Worst case, there will be a devendored fork of VCVRack soon, so it can be packaged properly.

Upstream have added an application update to the software, it's prompting to update from <help> menu. I suspect this will break/confuse matters, I also suspect Andrew Belt is not being entirely open about where this might be going ... just a hunch
