I'm sorry for double posting @oscareczek

It works. All is well now. Thank you

@mikearch You didn't have to comment both packages :P I consulted 86Box Discord and added a dependency, please tell me if that fixed the issue.

mikearch commented on 2022-11-24 15:37 (UTC)

According to this:

This package seems not to contain specific wayland code, which can make the mouse non-functional under wayland.

Would you consider looking in to this?

Thank you for your work.

Fixed, thanks.

As of the latest update I'm getting a build error (x86-64, building using aurutils in a chroot, this has worked before):

My guess is that there is a missing dependency on vulkan-headers that was implicit when using qt6 (qt6-base depends on vulkan-headers). You probably will not notice unless you build in a clean chroot.

chungy commented on 2022-05-16 23:54 (UTC)

In order to deal with upstream issue 2333 (, I recommend making this package depend on qt5-base and remove -DUSE_QT6=ON from the PKGBUILD.

Lili1228 commented on 2022-03-22 20:07 (UTC)

Fixed, thanks.

faudio is missing

Applied the patch, thanks! I also made issue 2171 on GitHub since I have a feeling it shouldn't be really needed to use presets in the first place, we'll see how it goes.

The code produced by the PKGBUILD doesn't work correctly because of missing compiler flags (-fno-strict-aliasing, and for Intel additionaly -mstackrealign). Try, for example, installing NEXTSTEP in an emulated Pentium machine. It behaves extremely erratic and is impossible to install. Instead of adding these flags, I've changed the PKGBUILD to use the provided cmake configuration files and disable the makepkg provided build flags. This leads to the usage of the correct compiler flags and NEXTSTEP works nicely. Thank you for providing this package.
