Please do not flag this package as out-of-date if the only change you need is to update to a newer version. It is not needed because it always fetches the sources using Git and uses the most recent version without needing to modify the PKGBUILD — just rebuild the package.

Also, please try building in a clean chroot before assuming that the PKGBUILD is broken.

The RDP support seems to giving some people grief - see

Should the freerdp dep perhaps be optional?

@Mel: Thanks for the heads up, the dependency is now added.

Mel commented on 2019-10-17 08:26

wlroots now comes with rdp beckend, depends array should now include 'freerdp' see:

Please add "provides=('wlroots=0.7')" to the PKGBUILD or you won't be able to use this with community sway installed.

@Ferdi265, @swalladge: Thanks for the heads up, I have updated now the PKGBUILD :-)

Ferdi265 commented on 2019-08-09 11:38

Adding to what swalladge said: -Drootston=true also needs to be removed.

swalladge commented on 2019-08-09 00:24

PKGBUILD fails since the commit that removes rootston:

Will need the lines that manually install rootston removed from the PKGBUILD. Thanks. :)

There is a change in mesa-git that caused some issue with glvnd and mesa. There is a bug report

Temp solution is to downgrade mesa-git
