@Shatur: In principle, it is possible. However, in practice it would be extremely difficult to set up on archlinuxarm. ALARM doesn't have lib32-* packages (i.e. armv7h) which would be needed to run both box86 and wine x86. Distros like debian do have nice infrastructure to have separate architecture libs co-exist on one system. Archlinux doesn't, so you would have to set up that environment by yourself.

In other words: if you would want to try that out, it's probably better to install some debian-based system. I think I've seen tutorials on how to set that up with box86 and box64 running on an aarch64 system.

Is it possible to install this package on aarch64 to run Wine x86?

systemctl restart systemd-binfmt is missing in post_install() function. See

Building in Termux surfaces python as a missing makedep.

@logan2611: box64 and box64-git have now also been added

mogwai commented on 2021-08-08 19:26 (UTC)

Yes, I will add it in two weeks from now. I already had a draft version ready. (I'm afk, right now.)

Could you also add box64?

@grappas: Sorry, I feel that that would kind of beat the purpose of the AUR. Most bin packages exist because of the application being closed source or too big to build (i.e. too many dependencies). This package has almost no dependencies and it builds within a matter of minutes on even the most underpowered ARM hardware that I have.

You could try convincing the archlinuxarm project to start packaging it in their repostories?

Could you provide box86-bin package?
