@Peter0x44: I'm mirroring what the dolphin-emu package in the main repos does.

I don't think building without libmgba always is ideal - it is a package in the community repos, and I think it would be nice to use that if it is present

Could it be possible to link libmgba, if it is installed instead of always providing -DUSE_MGBA=NO in the build step? @dpeukert

@all: Sorry about the delay once again, everything should now be up-to-date.

There's an issue with building this package, I think it has to do with submodule initialization. I'm not technical enough to know the fix, unfortunately.

@dpeukert OK, I thought you weren't available for it. Totally understandable! Sorry about the request.

@HurricanePootis: I have been without access to an internet connection for about two weeks and I've now been going through all the packages that became out-of-date in that period. This package is the only one that's left to fix and I plan on fixing it ASAP, I just haven't got around to it due to some unrelated work stuff, but I hope to have it done by Thursday.

@modnoob @purisame @rien333 @DocMAX @NovaMoon @chungy: Sorry about the delay, will be looking into fixing this tonight.

This should be enough to build Dolphin with the integrated GBA (the other option is -DUSE_MGBA=NO in the cmake step...):

When i was building this from source i got the same error as from this pkgbuild. in the wiki there is this mention,

git submodule update --init Externals/mGBA

(as of July 2021, Dolphin integrates mGBA, this step is needed to pull it into the build)

after that i could build the emulator
