Hi, I think I solved the build dependency problem. Just add -DGLSLANG_TARGET_DIR="/usr/lib/cmake/" to specify the glslangTarget.cmake path. This should work for ncnn and all packages with submodule of ncnn. In this way, you can remove the submodules downloading and use 'ncnn-git' as make dependency.

Thank you for your package. I made dain-ncnn-vulkan and cain-ncnn-vulkan and fixed the load_module issue, hope that will be helpful for you too.

If that happens maybe simply enforce the -git variant of the dependency?

Still, at the very least follow the guidelines for submodules so that it can get cached.

I'll switch to system webp/ncnn on the stable package, but I'm hesitant to use system ncnn on this -git package. It depends on a specific version of ncnn that is sometimes between the latest release and head.

That same problem with "Whoops! Connection failed. Please try again. If the problem persists, contact our customer support." is back. So 3.7.4 has NOT resolved the problem (as i'm still running that exact 3.7.4 binary) and the problem was related to something else.

In the end, NordVPN is just unusable for me in any way, there are so many different errors over time. - This ARCH package does not seem very active / no real help here (maybe because no one has any knowledge about the potential issues) - NordVPN support is not willing to help in any way (because i'm not using one of the packaged created by NordVPN) - There are 0 detailled logs attached to that NordVPN binary and that could lead to a possible problem / a possible solution

Anyway i'm done with nordvpn in this state, and as soon as my subscription is going to be expired, i'll check another VPN provider.

This comment was originally about submodule guidelines, but after looking at the CMakeLists.txt I found out you can use system ncnn and libwebp.

Could you make it use system ncnn and libwebp instead of submodules? Would make re-compiling faster and done properly instead of re-downloading (and re-compiling) it each time.

Thanks, I updated the pkgbuild for the ncnn submodule.

kescherAUR commented on 2020-05-22 15:39

Had to add

git submodule update --init

to the prepare function after the cd command.

Now it works, good work

ipha commented on 2020-05-05 13:15

I've added a ncnn package that follows releases instead of git master. Try removing ncnn-git then rebuilding.

Like the others said, the output is always a black image (just sayin').
