You're in time ;)

Yeah, it was fun to play with.

>but with some really annoying bugs and design limits (ex. it was x86_64 incompatible).
I'm on i686 - on x86_64, I would need some help...

>Linux was not his main development platform.

Yeah, it's a one-man-show. But I'm sure he's accepting staging diffs
on his git tree.

>but keep in mind I'll try to be here for giving you an helping hand if you need it.
I appreciate your offer!

>Giada, rtaudio and quedit are now fatherless, hurry up and adopt em :)
Oops, luolimao took over (part of) my fixes for qedit, rtaudio and giada
I'm fine with it, if it's done properly...

You were so eager to take over... I'm sure you will read this:

Did you even check your giada/PKGBUILD?

Your source line results to this src file:

You're still downloading giada.png from monocasual.com
Why not the source - it's still working

Your PKGBUILD breaks with an error:

configure: error: cannot run C++ compiled programs.
If you meant to cross compile, use `--host'.
See `config.log' for more details
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

Obscure isn't it? Just because of a missing blank in export XXXFLAGS...
Shy on copying my fixes verbatim?

If it's not working for x86_64, remove it from arch=() and ask for help.
