for anyone who gets an error message like this

/opt/epsxe/epsxe: version `NCURSES_TINFO_5.0.19991023' not found (required by /opt/epsxe/epsxe)
/opt/epsxe/epsxe: version `NCURSES_5.0.19991023' not found (required by /opt/epsxe/epsxe)

this is my temporary solution

wget --content-disposition
mkdir ncurses
tar xf ncurses-5.9_20141101-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz -C ncurses &>/dev/null
sudo cp ncurses/usr/lib/ /opt/epsxe
rm -rf ncurses
cd /opt/epsxe
sudo ln -sf
sudo ln -sf

@hav3lock maybe you can use the old libncurses library as a symbolic link target in PKGBUILD

Same issue with @async on Arch LTS x64

After running recent Manjaro updates, ncurses was updated to version 6.x. Now I'm unable to use epsxe (neither this package or the 32bit package), and getting the same error as @zwastik.

[bitfenix@bitfenix-pc ~]$ epsxe /opt/epsxe/epsxe: /opt/epsxe/ version NCURSES_TINFO_5.0.19991023' not found (required by /opt/epsxe/epsxe) /opt/epsxe/epsxe: /opt/epsxe/ versionNCURSES_5.0.19991023' not found (required by /opt/epsxe/epsxe) /opt/epsxe/epsxe: /usr/lib/ no version information available (required by /opt/epsxe/epsxe)

As the package maintainer recommended, I tried running strace epsxe. Here is the output of that command:

Suggestion 1 is no different than the current situation, aside from adding unnecessary logic: they both evaluate to an arch array containing i686.

Suggestion 2 makes no sense: package_epsxe installs a binary incompatible with i686 systems.

And as for suggestion 3: there is a 32-bit version of Arch Linux--I will not be removing i686 from the arch array.

rafaelff commented on 2021-07-06 14:24

This package is made available to arch=i686 with 'epsxe' split package using 64-bits binary.

My suggestion is:

  • remove arch i686, as this architecture is not supported by Arch Linux


  1. if pkgname contains 32 (this condition is already implemented) OR arch = i686, use 32-bits binary.
  2. package_epsxe() have arch=('i686' 'x86_64')
  3. package_bin32-epsxe() have arch=('x86_64') as only a 64-bit system would use this package

Can you give me output from strace, valgrind and ldd for the actual epsxe binary?

Email them to me. @zwastik please email me the outputs for those commands too: I don't want to clog up the comments here with large blocks of program output like that.

@visious5d and @zwastik

At the end of the day, there is only so much I can do. Issues like the ones you're having might need to be taken up with the developer, but let me see if there are any obvious issues like epsxe not being able to find a library or smth.

visious5d commented on 2021-07-05 07:34

@hav3lock Hi, I have the same problem with 32-bit version

hav3lock commented on 2021-07-05 02:37

Okay, the package has been split. Let me know if there are any issues with the new 32-bit package.

Oh, some changes: the new release includes some shaders that you can use: enjoy!

hav3lock commented on 2021-07-05 01:32

@Rokero After looking things over, I've decided to split the package: the issues you have been encountering are not because there's something wrong with the package and plugin packages with how I do support for both 32-bit and 64-bit, the issue is that there are no 64-bit plugins: all of them are 32-bit.

hav3lock commented on 2021-07-05 00:58

I have been very busy with some major life changes.

@rokero I have gone down that road before and I did not like it. I will review the package and plugins, but I will not be splitting the package. With that said, next time you want a package maintainer to do something nice for you, don't fucking threaten them--I would appreciate if you would be more polite in future communiques.

@zwastik Can you give me the output of epsxe being run via strace and valgrind? Might help me identify what's wrong. Also run ldd /opt/bin/epsxe (or whatever path the actual epsxe binary lives at.)

@visios5d I'll look into the lts and Nvidia changes. I don't have an Nvidia card, but I'll do what I can.
