@bkb Using makechrootpkg as described in the linked Wiki article is the way official package are built and what one is supposed to use to get sane results. Maybe the regular/official vlc package has the same problem and nobody noticed because they are using makechrootpkg.

Unfortunately this problem is not inherent to this package. You've just been lucky or didn't notice possible problems so far. It is unfortunately common practice that build systems look around for libraries on their own and use what they can find (e.g. to enable optional features). In this case the included lua headers and the lua library it tries to link against are inconsistent (see comment of @SolarAquarion). That's of course unusually worse. Maybe the pkg-config scripts provided by the lua/lua52/lua51 are even at fault here (just a guess).

The problem occurs because there are multiple "lua's" on your system. So things mess itself up due to that problem.

Why the PKGBUILD doesn't automatically creates a temporary chroot, it's more simple and the problem is inherent to this package

@SolarAquarion Thank you for your reply, but chroot to where? Could you please elaborate?


SolarAquarion commented on 2020-03-17 14:30

it needs to be built in a chroot otherwise it fails

I get the same error as @bkb about "undefined reference to `lua_remove'" Any patch for this too?

Thank you very much!

I get same error as @wizonesolutions of course....any workaround to deal with this?

SolarAquarion commented on 2020-03-05 16:53

it's something upstream for sure, i'll try a local patch and see what happens
