google-musicmanager PKGBUILD submitted

google-musicmanager has a native Linux version now (packages only for Ubuntu and Fedora, of course), so I went ahead and made a PKGBUILD for it.  This is my first one, so any feedback would be greatly appreciated.  Also, if someone could test to make sure it works on i686 I'd greatly appreciate that.

Re: google-musicmanager PKGBUILD submitted

Thanks for PKGBUILD!  I just tried it out on laptop (i686) and got the following error:

-> Installation finished!
==> Tidying install...
  -> Purging other files...
  -> Compressing man and info pages...
  -> Stripping unneeded symbols from binaries and libraries...
/usr/bin/strip:./opt/google/musicmanager/minidump_upload: File format not recognized
==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build google-musicmanager.

Re: google-musicmanager PKGBUILD submitted

Hm, if strip doesn't recognize it, makepkg might have downloaded the wrong architecture.  Can you confirm that the makepkg is downloading the i386 deb for you, not the amd64 one (look in the build directory)?  If it says it's i386, maybe run file on minidump_upload?  It should be a 32-bit ELF.

Edit: Aha!  I did that myself, it turns out that Google packaged it wrong (they put a 64-bit binary in their 32-bit package).  I'll go file a bug report with them now.

Re: google-musicmanager PKGBUILD submitted

Since i couldn't find your bug report i filed another one, just to make some noise... I had exactly the same error in 686

Edit, it is working right now on i686 after the pkgbuild changes (mostly the !strip i guess)

Re: google-musicmanager PKGBUILD submitted

It's working here now with the updated pkgbuild.  Thanks again!

Re: google-musicmanager PKGBUILD submitted

thanks for the PKGBUILD! Is anyone else having issues running it though? About 10 seconds after launching the program it eats up all my RAM and my system freezes up...

It looks like it's having troubles initializing log4cxx:

log4cxx: No appender could be found for logger (root).
log4cxx: Please initialize the log4cxx system properly.

That looks like an upstream bug (and it could be completely unrelated to the RAM issue). I submitted feedback to the Google Music team and they're looking into it. I was just curious if anyone else is seeing the same issue...


Also, you might want to change or remove this line:

    msg "Extracting the Google Chrome package"

Re: google-musicmanager PKGBUILD submitted

I get the error about log4cxx as well , but I haven't experienced it using an unreasonable amount of memory.

And yes,  I  suppose  I  should  change  that line!

Re: google-musicmanager PKGBUILD submitted

I get the same log4cxx error but no issues with it taking up abnormal amounts of ram.  I've been steadily working on my 10,000+ song library without any real hiccups yet.  I just checked and it's using approx. 8mb of 4gb of RAM.  Not sure if people consider that a 'large amount' but it's fine for me.

Re: google-musicmanager PKGBUILD submitted

Yeah, mine's hovering at around 2.2GB of RAM: http://i.imgur.com/aG4nb.png

I'm guessing it's an upstream bug...

EDIT: I only see this on one of my machines, both 64 bit...
EDIT 2: turns out I *do* see it on both (64 bit) machines.

Woops, sorry!

Re: google-musicmanager PKGBUILD submitted

I had none of the problems above, it does take a few ram sometimes but not anything i would find alarming. Then, my library was already uploaded with the wine version and the linux one only had to check for it, upload some new files and some old ones in different formats as the linux client can upload .ogg files without converting them.

Re: google-musicmanager PKGBUILD submitted

I'm still not seeing the memory issues on my i686 machine, but my x64 machine it takes about 80% RAM and crashes shortly thereafter.  Strange.

Why does this look and feel like a wine app for me?

jck, it uses qt for the gui. You should be able to set it to use whichever qt theme you like.

Re: google-musicmanager PKGBUILD submitted

Thank you very much! This is much appreciated. I was worried that I wouldn't be able to find a way to upload my music to Google Music when I decided to use Arch Linux. Glad that the community always has a package in AUR for all of your needs!

I have a similar issue; the program freezes after about 10 seconds after startup. I'm running on a 64bit machine. I've installed log4cxx from the AUR, but that didn't change the freezing. However, I don't have the memory issue.
Has anyone found a resolution for the freeze?

Re: google-musicmanager PKGBUILD submitted

FYI, looks like the 64-bit memory leak issues have been fixed upstream. It's working for me since the last update.

Re: google-musicmanager PKGBUILD submitted

Thanks a lot for this package! I have just one issue: when I click on "Go to music manager" it starts Firefox, while I'd like to use Chromium... Is there anything I could do?
BTW, md5 for i686 was wrong I had to change it with the one in the first comment.

I'm guessing you probably want to update your default browser.
