WARNING: Before you go ahead and install Anbox on your system, please keep in mind that Anbox is not yet stable. Not every feature is working well yet. You will find bugs, see crashes and unexpected problems. As this is a Git package, patches should go upstream as they will not be bundled with the package.

@eschwartz Thank you! I finally got it installed overriding the PATH to (PATH=/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin yay -S anbox-git).

You have mutilated your system $PATH by adding an invalid entry, namely, /bin (which is a symlink to another directory also on $PATH).

Cmake really, really, really doesn't like that.

I can't install anbox on my laptop. Always throw the following error:

Imported target "Boost::iostreams" includes non-existent path "/include"

Anyone had the some problem or had a idea of how fix this?

Obs.: The kernel is freezed in the version 5.8.14-zen because of compatibility issues with the bluetooth 5.0 adapter I use.

@irtimmer: Thx for splitting the packages, but could you add the dkms modules package (again) (as a seperate repo and package of course)? As cyberpunkrocker mentioned below, it is still useful for users of older kernels (with "linux-lts" for example).

Anbox-git won't build in a chroot without adding dbus and systemd to the makedepends.

Speaking with my official Trusted User hat on, I agree that anbox-modules-dkms-git should be its own PKGBUILD. It doesn't share sources, pkgver() or build(), so I'm not sure why it is mixing two different components together...

With python2 is replaced by python3 (python in archlinux repo) so the makedepends array needs to be updated.

@G3ro: Thank you for updating the wiki! With the new instructions, Anbox installs and works perfectly with linux-zen.

@cyberpunkrocker: Ok, thx for pointing that out. I forgot about older kernels. I guess I will add a section for that in the wiki.

@irtimmer: Could you split your PKGBUILD, so that users who only need Anbox, can install it without building the dkms-modules as well (or needing to edit the PKGBUILD)?

cyberpunkrocker commented on 2020-10-18 17:14

@G3ro: the dkms modules are still needed by linux-lts kernel, and they work with it
