The patch failure should be caused by another drop pushed in 12/28.

This should be in Arch's official repository

Looks like you forgot something in prepare... ==> Beginne prepare()... fatal: Konnte '../0001-workaround-remove-invalid-constexpr-modifier.patch' nicht zum Lesen öffnen.: Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden

Frohes Fest!

@Linkoh Yea, there's some weirdness how they are linking. For some reason it pulls in all symbols from PAL twice and then every single symbol conflicts with itself.

I got it working with the included patch 0001-remove-linking-with-whole-archive.patch which removes lines like target_link_libraries(xgl PRIVATE -Wl,--whole-archive ${PROJECT_BINARY_DIR}/pal/src/libpal.a -Wl,--no-whole-archive)

I have no idea what this is supposed to be doing, but removing those lines makes it compile and work for me.

Linkoh commented on 2017-12-23 11:41 I tried installing it but that's what I got while building. Not sure about what to do.

Hmm I did not get notifications for those comments.

Anyway, it's just crudely hacked together at the moment, the patches will surely become unnecessary soon. I haven't yet tested what dependencies it needs, so just try it and you'll see...

It did work without the settings file, but I added it anyway.

/etc/amd/amdPalSettings.cfg needs to contain the line MaxNumCmdStreamsPerSubmit,4 to get the driver working with upstream AMDGPU stack. I can't test right now.
