OpenWebRx+ for Manjaro ARM

Hello everyone again! :grinning:

After I found the current version of Telegram in the form of a Flatpack, I am happy to use the Manjaro ARM again.
At the same time, I am pleasantly surprised by the stability of the functioning of this distribution on TV-Box Beelink GtKing, it still works great.
Thanks to these unknown to me people who have created such a stable distribution.
Thanks also to @linux-aarhus, who responded to my request in a friendly way and created the Firefox-ESR v.115 package which I continue to use with pleasure.
Thanks also to all the people who helped me solve the problems that arise when mastering the Manjaro ARM.

Now I is have a new petition :slight_smile:
There is an OpenWebRx+ application that unfortunately, it while only works on only works on and economical Raspberry, voracious Intel and AMD.


I use it on Rpi-4, however it is quite slow
Therefore, it seems to me that the 6-core ARM S922x is significantly superior to the RPi-4 in performance, and I would like to use OpenWebRx+ on this ARM for a lot of work.

Dear @linux-aarhus, I am writing to you again with a similar petition: please build the OpenWebRX+ 1.2.54 package for Manjaro ARM.

I already know that you can do it well :smiley:

Have you tried the AUR package? The PKGBUILD says arch=('any') so it hopefully should build on ARM.

Yes, I’ve tried it. Unfortunately, the build of this package fails:

csdr-luarvique is being built...
==> ERROR: There is no 'csdr-luarvique' package for the 'aarch64' architecture.

Probably, this ‘any’ does not include aarch64, and a special build is needed.

Yes, I see the problem. The csdr-luarvique PKGBUILD specifies arch=('i686' 'x86_64').

The maintainer of openwebrx-plus and csdr-luarvique packages are the same person. Obviously they didn’t actually test arch=('any')

In the csdr-luarvique PKGBUILD:

arch=('i686' 'x86_64' 'aarch64')

Then it will make a package.

Looking over the OpenwebRxplus PKGBUILD it looks like the makings of a complete nightmare to build. Looks like at least @15 AUR packages needs to be built. Then have no clue if they will require more with their depends. I do not believe you are going to get anyone to build all of these packages for you.

It is way past time for you to start building your own packages.

It’s very sad, of course… :pensive:
If I learn how to collect packages for ARM, it will be a very long time
