I'm working on fixing this right now.

Here's the fix. Let me know when it is committed. (9,566 bytes)

So, there is a compile error introduced 4 months ago?
And is it fixed?
I don't see any "release version" on FFmpeg tracker.

You know, I'm not sure building FFmpeg without assembly is a good idea.
My opinion is: just wait until FFmpeg releases a fix, then update to the version.

Aside from that, it is possible to look at the fix FFmpeg did (most likely add 32, but better check), and add it as a patch.

- The failure is due to an update of gcc.
- The fix is only available in git. Maybe it would only be fixed for version 6.
- Which commit fixes it is mentioned nowhere.

- The affected file is so different in version 4 compared with 6. You can't make a patch out of it.

I have the commit, I'm preparing the patch right now.

- Upgrades ffmpeg to 4.4.4.
- Adds patch to build with the latest binutils.

- Upgrades openal to 1.23.1.
- Upgrades the mxcsr.patch to work with such version.
- Changes patching to work with the latest build environment.
- Sets its depend on alsa to be the same as the rest of packages, in packages.yaml.

- Commented all the differences with the original conanfiles.
- Corrected the conan install command at to explicitly have "--profile:build", which causes warnings with the latest build environment. (15,304 bytes)

- Tested that all builds and works while launching the game.

Let me know when you include it in the SVN.

I committed FFmpeg recipe update in svn rev 10466.

What's the deal with OpenAL?
We had OpenAL breaking frequently in various versions, not really happy with +2 major versions upgrade.

If I don't recall it wrongly there was a mismatch between the custom openal version, and the version some other package was asking for. Which triggered a warning.

By the was I have been using The Dark Mod with the upgraded openal, and I have seen no issues whatsoever. If I upload a fix here it's because I have already thoroughly tested it builds well with the hole game.

Also when I was in charge for Ubuntu papercut bugs I observed a phenomenon that was contrary to popular belief. That as long as the new version didn't have any grave bug upgrading more often, even when you had a risk of getting new bugs, usually resulted in less bugs afterwards.

Because when you upgrade more often you receive the bugs one by one, so you can fix them little by little too.

But if you wait for too long to upgrade all bugs may come in avalanche, so in practice there is a higher delay on fixing them.

Also new versions usually quickly the grave bugs, which are the most relevant ones. Minor issues, which are most of them, usually don't prevent software from working well enough.

By the way the bincrafters repository seems dormant, as it hasn't seen a single recipe update since January.

Probably we should keep an eye on it.

Strange: there are no dependencies on OpenAL except for ALSA, and ALSA is not required by any other package.
If FFmpeg is built with ALSA for some reason, this should be fixed --- it does not depend in our minimalistic build.

"when you upgrade more often you receive the bugs one by one, so you can fix them little by little too."
I have not seen yet anyone in TDM community who can fix a bug in OpenAL.
And I don't recall any successful bug report either --- it's just "something not working on some machine".

"I have already thoroughly tested it builds well with the whole game."
Well, speaking of the previous issues, OpenAL also worked perfectly fine for me =)
It was always other people who had breaking issues.

The dependency issue was about alsa. the old openal required an older version of alsa than some other package.

I think that if a minority is experiencing an issue with openal they should report to openal developers, instead of leaving all the bugs accumulate till the end of times and never upgrade.

FFmpeg is not updated to 6.1 which includes the patch naturally.
