It's probably a good idea to add the CMake flag -DUSE_SYSTEM_LIBMGBA=OFF now that mgba isn't listed as a dependency - currently it just fails to compile if libmgba is installed instead of libmgba-git

Seems to be depending on an outdated version of the libfmt library, breaking any package updates.

Whenever I try instlaling this package, it builds a Dirty version of Dolphin Dolphin [makepkg] 5.0-19368-dirty

Does this happen to anyone else meaning there is something in the pkgbuild that causes this? Or is this something that's only caused on my system

Do you need libmgba-git?

That is the library for a Gameboy emulator, and I cant install this version of Dolphin and mGBA together, since you are using the git version of libmgba.

That library is not used in the Dolphin of the Extra repo :)

Are you sure, you need that?

Thanks for figuring out a patch Rockoman100, Applied it.

There are several problems preventing this from compiling out of the box, but I've cobbled together a comprehensive solution:

First, here is the patch for the PKGBUILD that will fix all of these problems. Keep reading below for more explanation.

As user 'renas' said (here:, you need to have both mbedtls and mbedtls2 installed on your system. The above PKGBUILD adds this dependency.

In addition, as user lgaggini said (here:, you need to include this patch in your PKGBUILD file that redirects mbedtls references to mbedtls2:

The above PKGBUILD includes this patch

This will solve the mbedtls problem. However, there is one more error you will encounter. As user Compile3440 suggests (here:, you need to have the libmgba-git version of libmgba installed, not the official binary. The above PKGBUILD includes this dependency, but you will have to install it yourself from the AUR:

Now you should be able to build dolphin-emu-beta-git

renas commented on 2023-05-27 06:44 (UTC) (edited on 2023-05-28 00:12 (UTC) by renas)

package breaks with "mbedtls" errors.

see mbedtls2 is now required (additively: package now requires both mbedtls AND mbedtls2)

edit: only include relevant section edit1: solution found

It looks like they have changed the QT dependency to 6, please can qt5-base be updated to qt6-base in depends

This package is flagged out of date, but when you download the snapshot there is an, which you can execute to update the PGKBUILD to build the current beta release. The fetches the current release from
