@Omar007 Understood, thanks for the explanation! Just finding my way around Manjaro since I installed it first time 2 weeks ago :)

@Kana: release build VS. git head/master build

You can also always check the PKGBUILDs (as one probably should when pulling stuff from the AUR to build a package with to install on ones system which will be done with root access level ;) )

Sorry for maybe silly question.. The descriptions don't say anything about it, so I don't quite understand the difference between this package and the other one of virtually same name on https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/looking-glass-git

And what would be the difference if I directly cloned the https://github.com/gnif/LookingGlass.git repository?

Url should be updated to https://looking-glass.io/

Kernel module fails to compile with linux >= 5.9 due to a breaking change, see issue #314 for details.

B2 has been released.

@admicos: Please don't flag this as outdated if there hasn't been a new official release. B1 is still the latest version atm; https://looking-glass.hostfission.com/downloads

As I mentioned before:

Update to the first official release version. From here on out, the package will only be updated on new official releases, not on RC releases.

If anyone has interest in RC releases, feel free to create a looking-glass-rc variant based on this yourself.

As you already established, a recompile fixes it. But I'm bumping the pkgrel to force an update for anyone using an AUR helper or w/e just in case.

Hello,

For information it seems the latest nettle update (3.6-1) broke this package. Following the latest system upgrade I get the message "looking-glass-client: error while loading shared libraries: libnettle.so.7: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory".

NEVERMIND, I'm an idiot. For anyone else running into this issue, just recompile the package.
