Just installed cin-5.1-arch-20190309-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz and it's running without any errors.
I've been a longtime kdenlive user but now it's time to try something new.
Thank you.

Andrea: you do your own builds so you should not have this problem because libvpx in is set to "auto" which means probe and use the system version if the build operation is not static. So when you build cinelerra and have libvpx 1.8.1-0 it will use that and not expect, so no error. It would have been better if I had explicitly stated that it was for users who downloaded Arch builds from

The reason I added your name to this issue was because of the Linux kernel upgrade to 5.0 -- this is kind of a big deal. This could potentially have some small impact on Cinelerra and I knew you would keep us informed if you found any problem and we always need that kind of help from you.

I don't really understand what tests I have to take. I have compiled the latest version. Isn't that okay? Do I have to install with pacman -U one of the three builds produced by GG?
My Arch is updated every day; I didn't have the problem reported by Tengisu. I tested IgorBeg's project (Issue 137) [not stupid at all ;-)]

For Arch users who have recently updated their ARCH systems, in order to run cinelerra, you will have to use a newer build tar/pkg. Here are the download builds for you, in this order 1=static tar, 2=dynamic tar, 3= package and you WILL HAVE TO CHANGE package path:

Please pass along any other issues. We tested the new build (I think the static tar) on Arch and it came up and loaded/played a file.

Arch is different and often ahead of other distros. We had just upgraded our Arch build system here on February 21 and it was still using libvpx 1.7.0-1 (so.5) so that is what the tar and package builds are based on. When gg looked at Arch today it is now on libvpx 1.8.0-1(so.6).
So you are getting the libvpx.s0.5 error because you have libvpx.s0.6 now instead and Cin expects libvpx.s0.5 and it is missing.

Anyway, GG just upgraded his Arch and is creating new builds and will pass along the new location when available in a few hours.

@Every Arch user: this will affect other Arch users as well.
The latest Arch is at the NEW LINUX KERNEL of 5.0. There will probably be some impacts using Cin until we get it straightened out.
PLEASE REPORT all issues so we can get this resolved.

We will probably carry 2 Arch builds for a couple of months until all users get upgraded to the latest Arch.
