Just for completeness, if there's anything wrong with the source PKGBUILD, I highly encourage remarking on that there, as it's not exactly stellar work.

I also intend to bump all packages up to 2.2.0 as soon as stable's released.

Thanks for the tip. I'll take a look at those options...

You could always use only kata-containers-image-bin for images and try to compile kata-runtime from it's own separate source-based package, substituting the tarball for GitHub's zip package, like

I've just noticed that there's a similar issue with firecracker where there's a fix for parsing version numbers > 0.25

Neither are in the latest release -- I spot now the PKGBUILD is based on releases and changing to build from source looks to be quite a big lift... I guess we might have to wait for the next release :-(

This version has an issue with qemu_amd64.go (fixed in )

It passes kernel_irqchip without " =on|off " which means qemu won't start.

That was fixed on July 28, although the latest release was 2.1.1 on 11th June I was wondering if you'd be able to update the package to at least that commit thanks

Fixed, thanks for the feedback, lightdot.

I'm building kata 2 binary release with aurutils, an AUR helper capable of dependency resolution.

If I start by building kata-runtime-bin, it tries to pull linux-kata instead of the expected linux-kata-bin.

Starting with linux-kata-bin instead, causes kata-runtime-bin and kata-containers-image-bin to be pulled, as expected.

This might be entirely my AUR helper's doing, but I'm reporting here nonetheless, in case someone else encounters the same issue.
