mynacol: Thanks for the heads up, added libmicrodns>=0.1.2 to deps. You probably already have this but maybe others will find it useful. Here's what I whipped up quick to build libmicrodns latest on my machine: I'm sure improvements could be made.

bkb: Added, thanks for the heads up.

retromuz: Try building in a clean chroot (if you haven't already). The failure was either a transient failure (because upstream broke something) or it's your env as I was able to build the latest push without error.

configure: error: Library microdns >= 0.1.2 needed for microdns was not found

The compilation requires now libmicrodns>=0.1.2 and is mandatory. Please add libmicrodns>=0.1.2 to the depends and remove it out of the optdepends.

The corresponding package is already flagged out-of-date. See

Add flex as a dependance

SolarAquarion commented on 2019-06-19 04:33

You can enable libplacebo again

SolarAquarion commented on 2019-06-14 17:15

Just see all the changes that went into vlc-nightly, lol

andrewSC commented on 2019-06-14 14:01

Thanks for the heads up SolarAquarion! I'll take a look and update this momentarily.

SolarAquarion commented on 2019-06-14 13:08

I have added patches to my vlc-nightly package that will make vlc work with the latest libplacebo

Cannot compile. Is stops at libgl_plugin_la-display.lo

Needs qt5-graphicaleffects dependency or the GUI crashes and get this in the command line.
