Libquicktime and java8-openjfx not upgrading

libquicktime 1.2.4-25 and java8-openjfx not upgrading. I tried to read the errors, but they don’t make any sense to me.


nevermind… here we are a week later, i was trying it again to pastebin the error and it works now! Thanks to whoever fixed this!

It appears that the source code is not compatible with ffmpeg5. The PKGBUILD on the AUR should be updated (and potentially others changes are also needed). Others have noticed it too, see the comments: AUR (en) - libquicktime

It looks like you have put java8-openjfx on the ignore list:

Warning: java8-openjfx: ignoring package upgrade (8.u202-3 => 8.u202-4)

but I may be mistaken - I don’t know what the output looks like when some package is in the ignore list - I have never done that.

libquicktime is marked as “orphan” and there are comments about this on the AUR page:

Yes, this package needs to be fixed to work with ffmpeg4.4 or ffmpeg 5. Either way, libquicktime’s upstream is dead. Feel free to adopt this package and fix it.

Consider what you need it for
or what other package needs it
and perhaps replace with something else from the regular repo?

For using ffmpeg4.4 instead of ffmpeg change the it in depends=() and add

export PKG_CONFIG_PATH='/usr/lib/ffmpeg4.4/pkgconfig'

to tell to makepkg to use ffmpeg4.4

Like I did for aqualung

@Lolix forgive my ignorance, but i haven’t a clue where to put that

export PKG_CONFIG_PATH='/usr/lib/ffmpeg4.4/pkgconfig'

in the build file(s) - there’s a few that are called “ffmpeg”. I have no idea what I’m looking at. I have not looked at text like this since when QB45 was new and actively being used :joy: Can you hold my hand (tell me exactly how to make it build?)

I’ve adopted the pkgbuild and made the fix

Somewhere before configuration or build starts

The ones in depends/makedepends/optdepends (not --with-ffmpeg \ in build() )

libquicktime-git builded without changes instead

I updated today to my surprise it worked, and found this post! Thank you!

Also, thank you for explaining where to put something like this. I’ll refer back to this post in the future to try and learn how to edit the package and maybe one day adopt a package. I just don’t know how to do this stuff yet. I only started building packages and roms with success in the last few years, but only following instructions and if it doesn’t work out the box often stuck. One day maybe!
