* Updated to vdr 2.0.6

Note that the APIVERSION has changed therefore plugins will need to be rebuilt.

vdr 2.0.5-4

* Removed vdr-1.7.40-ttxtsubs.patch

If anyone wants to add it to their own local PKGBUILD then the latest version can be found here:

With the vdr-1.7.40-ttxtsubs.patch runvdr throws a SegFault at start.
Had to revert to 2.0.5-1

Should never succumb to flattery! Just a note of warning, VDRAdmin-AM does not play well (here) with the ttxtsubs.patch in place. Everything works except the EPG Search function, which loses the ability to read epg entries.

vdr 2.0.5-2

* Added vdr-1.7.40-ttxtsubs.patch

Flattery works, sometimes ;-)

Thanks, Azleifel your are the greatest. :)

I used VDR directory environment to build
# Build
make LIBDIR="$pkgdir/$_vdrLIBDIR" \
LOCALEDIR="$pkgdir/$_vdrLOCDIR" \
VDRDIR="$_vdrINCDIR/vdr" \
One more thing is it possible for you to include the ttxtsubs patch.

It's really a must at least in Scandinavia and some other countries who uses teletext subtitles instead of DVB subtitles. English movies are OK one can understand with out subtitles, but when they show foreign movies thats when it gets !!!###

@decaturguy: My vdr package installs vdr.pc in /usr/lib/pkgconfig, which is where it ought to be, and doesn't install the vdr source tree, so it isn't possible to build plugins in the way you're probably trying to build the channellists plugin without first making some changes to the plugin's Makefile.

In the meantime, try the following PKGBUILD. I knocked it together very quickly and it builds just fine. The only thing it doesn't do is install the script that's included with the source.

arch=('i686' 'x86_64')
pkgdesc="A VDR Plugin to manage your Channellists"

build() {
cd "${srcdir}/${_pluginname}-${pkgver}"

package() {
cd "${srcdir}/${_pluginname}-${pkgver}"
make DESTDIR="${pkgdir}" install

# Install documents
install -d -m755 "${pkgdir}/usr/share/doc/${pkgname}"
for _file in README HISTORY; do
install -m644 ${_file} "${pkgdir}/usr/share/doc/${pkgname}"

# vdr.pc is needed to compile vdr-channellists plugin
install -m644 $"${srcdir}/${pkgname}-${pkgver}/vdr.pc" "${pkgdir}${_vdrINCDIR}/vdr"

I have several objections:

1. Scripts really shouldn't be run from either /var/lib or /etc.
2. vdr normally needs to be invoked with multiple command line parameters.

This is what I'm using currently:
/usr/bin/vdr --cachedir=/var/cache/vdr -c /var/lib/vdr -E /srv/vdr/video -l 2 -L /usr/lib/vdr --lirc --localedir /usr/share/locale --no-kbd -P epgsearch -P extrecmenu -P femon -P streamdev-server -P suspendoutput --menu --logo -P trayopenng -c eject -d /dev/dvd -P xineliboutput --local=none --remote=37890 --resdir=/usr/share/vdr -u vdr -v /srv/vdr/video -w 90

3. My runvdr-extreme package already does what you appear to want.
