Description: xawtv lacks three binaries: scantv, mtt and alevtd. scantv should not be missed because it's used to generate the channel file. Also, while packaging xawtv on my PC I got this error message

CC libng/plugins/read-qt.o
libng/plugins/read-qt.c:7:33: error: quicktime/quicktime.h: No such file or directory
libng/plugins/read-qt.c:8:35: error: quicktime/colormodels.h: No such file or directory
libng/plugins/read-qt.c:9:27: error: quicktime/lqt.h: No such file or directory
libng/plugins/read-qt.c:18: error: ‘BC_RGB888’ undeclared here (not in a function)
libng/plugins/read-qt.c:263: error: ‘struct qt_handle’ has no member named ‘rows’
make: *** [libng/plugins/read-qt.o] Error 1
==> ERROR: Build Failed.

I kind of solved this problem by making a symlink to /usr/include/lqt named /usr/include/quicktime. I suppose, from the lack of {read,write} in the package, that packaging works when libquicktime is not installed.

Additional info:
* package version(s) xawtv 3.95
* config and/or log files etc.

Steps to reproduce:
$ pacman -Ql xawtv| grep scantv
is empty.
This task depends upon

I just did a rebuild and I can not confirm any of your problems.

I didn't get any of your errors.

cd pkg
find -name scantv
find -name mtt
find -name alevtd

namcap xawtv-3.95-7-x86_64.pkg.tar.gz
xawtv E: Dependency detected and not included (libgl-git) from files ['usr/bin/pia', 'usr/bin/motv', 'usr/bin/xawtv']
xawtv W: Dependency included but already satisfied ('alsa-lib')
xawtv W: Dependency included but already satisfied ('libxxf86vm')
xawtv W: Dependency included and not needed ('libgl')
xawtv W: Dependency included but already satisfied ('gpm')

The problem is that scantv, mtt and alevtd are not in the precompiled package downloaded from the server. Try to download it with
$ pacman -Sw xawtv
then check what it contains
$ tar -tzf /var/cache/pacman/pkg/xawtv-3.95-7-i686.pkg.tar.gz | egrep 'scantv|mtt|alevtd'
that is to say, no binaries for the missing scantv, mtt and alevtd. For me, the compilation works fine as long as libquicktime is not installed, otherwise it fails. Have you compiled with libquicktime installed?

I didn't compile with libquicktime.

Recompile here without changing PKGBUILD adds the missing binaries at least for me.

I compiled with libquicktime installed and got the same error.
The problem is that xawtv expects the header to be in /usr/include/quicktime/quicktime.h
libquicktime actually installs the header to /usr/include/lqt/quicktime.h
Comment by Giuseppe Borzi (gborzi) - Tuesday, 16 March 2010, 22:07 GMT
A way to avoid the quicktime error without uninstalling libquicktime is to use the --disable-quicktime configure option. But I still can't figure out why the missing binaries aren't in the package. Recompiling without modifications on the PKGBUILD makes a package containing the missing binaries on my system, the same as reported by tom and dale.

Another note: community/cinelerra-cv (20100313-1) : /usr/include/quicktime/quicktime.h

looks like upstream has been active developing in the repo:
more specifically..
Maybe we should try updating xawtv to try to get this old bug closed
