Description Olivier Samyn 2021-01-27 10:05:55 UTC
First, I'm aware of bug BZ#1911374 that has been closed as won't fix. 

But I think there is still a problem with current Carla packaging.

The current Carla package declares a strong dependency on jack-audio-connection-kit which in my opinion is wrong.

If I remove that requirement Carla is running perfectly fine with the pipewire provided jack connections. 
And in fact, the Carla package is even providing it's own libjack version, so I even think it should not depend on libjack to be installed.

As the package is functional without the jack-audio-connection-kit package being installed, and according to the weak dependencies policy, I think that the following line of Carla.spec:
Requires:       jack-audio-connection-kit

should either be dropped, or replaced by a simple:
Suggest:       jack-audio-connection-kit
