I recently updated Retroarch and all cores to the latest git, and I don't understand why this core stopped working.

If I follow the build instructions to the letter, and install everything manually, then everything works as intended.

But using this PKGBUILD, which does the exact thing that I do manually, the x64 and x64sc cores crash when starting them.

Fixed by adding "make clean" to build() in PKGBUILD, like this:

build() {
  cd "${_gitname}"
  make clean EMUTYPE=x128
  make EMUTYPE=x128
  make clean EMUTYPE=x64
  make EMUTYPE=x64
  make clean EMUTYPE=x64dtv
  make EMUTYPE=x64dtv
  make clean EMUTYPE=x64sc
  make EMUTYPE=x64sc
  make clean EMUTYPE=xcbm2
  make EMUTYPE=xcbm2
  make clean EMUTYPE=xcbm5x0
  make EMUTYPE=xcbm5x0
  make clean EMUTYPE=xpet
  make EMUTYPE=xpet
  make clean EMUTYPE=xplus4
  make EMUTYPE=xplus4
  make clean EMUTYPE=xscpu64
  make EMUTYPE=xscpu64
  make clean EMUTYPE=xvic
  make EMUTYPE=xvic

Something is broken in this package. Because when I do a git clone of the git repo, manually compile any or all of the EMUTYPEs, and copy it/them to the retroarch core directory, it works without issues.

@veganvelociraptr same here. I'm glad I read your comment because this is my first time trying to use retroarch and I though I was the problem.

Is anyone else having issues getting this to work? It used to work just fine a few updates, but now all cores except for C128 refuse to load for me, "Failed to load Libretro core" is all it says. The C128 core makes Retroarch coredump for me.

It works for me when I use Lakka, which has pre-compiled cores compared to AUR.

This libretro is missing some cores, actually vice is capable to emulate all commodore machines (Pet, vic-20, etc). I've fixed the PKGBUILD and updated to the last commit:

Broken on recent builds:

make: Makefile.libretro: No such file or directory
make: *** No rule to make target 'Makefile.libretro'.  Stop.

Enverex: Done.

All the info files have now been bundled off into their own package. Can you please remove the info file from this package so that it doesn't clash with the main one?
