Upgrading rebuild Deadbeef 1.9.4 -> 1.9.5

Initially I got the failed to sync AUR. But after trying over a period of time this issue was resolved.

However, I then got the error below when trying rebuild Deadbeef 1.9.4 → 1.9.5

The solution was to install pkgconf from the official repository.

configure: error: in `/var/tmp/pamac-build-yt/deadbeef/src/deadbeef-1.9.5':
configure: error: The pkg-config script could not be found or is too old.  Make sure it
is in your PATH or set the PKG_CONFIG environment variable to the full
path to pkg-config.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables JANSSON_CFLAGS
and JANSSON_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

To get pkg-config, see <http://pkg-config.freedesktop.org/>.
See `config.log' for more details
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

Is making sure you have the prerequisites for using the AUR:


pkgconf which replaces pkg-config, is part of base-devel which you should have installed, to build AUR packages.

If your AUR settings are OK, try to re-build base-devel:

$ sudo pacman -Syu base-devel

Reboot and try again.

base-devel is in the repos and you don’t rebuild it as its a meta package.

thanks, I’ve installed base-devel now. it worked with just pkgconf but it’s good to learn how to do it properly.
