We are still having some trouble testing the aarch64 build. However, you may use our PKGBUILD at until we have figured this out.

This PKGBUILD will be merged into master with the next release but not uploaded into the AUR until testing works. Versions and hashes will be automatically adjusted with every future cagebreak release. Nevertheless, aarch64 is still not officially supported at the moment.

cheers project-repo

Thank you for your suggestion. We are looking at compilation and testing for arm and will post here within the next two weeks.

I added 'aarch64' as supported architecture to the pkgbuild to install cagebreak on a Raspberry Pi and it works. Could you consider adding ARM64 as a supported architecture out of the box?

(This has been resolved with 1.7.0-1)

Cagebreak currently does not work with the new wlroots (0.13.0) version.

A new release is on its way but might take a few hours or days.

Should you have acute issues with cagebreak, downgrade wlroots to 0.12.x

1.5.0-2 is now in the AUR with an updated PKGBUILD.

Please feel free to file any additional bugs you may find in the PKGBUILDs or in cagebreak itself (Bugs in cagebreak should be filed on github or via email as specified in the README).

Yes, that fixes it.

Would this PKGBUILD fix your issue?

It just adds wayland-protocols to makedepends.

Needs wayland-protocols in makedepends. ERROR: Could not generate cargs for wlroots: Package wayland-protocols was not found in the pkg-config search path. Perhaps you should add the directory containing `wayland-protocols.pc' to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable Package 'wayland-protocols', required by 'wlroots', not found
