if you're trying to install this package along with anything that depends on the official libvirt package "provides" except libvirt itself, you get a dependency error. i got around this by modifying my pkgbuild to include the same provides section as the official package.

Wierd issue, I have a ryzen 9 - 32gb machine and this build ate all the ram and froze my machine. WTF???

Why would this build require so much ram all at once?

After installation, an additional change to /etc/libvirt/qemu.conf is required to change user and group values to existing ones.

Requires changes to references of qemu.conf to

Appears to fail pretty badly building in a chroot (same chroot base builds ~1k other packages fine):

@honsunrise: Good question; that seems like an oversight (I just adopted this recipe)


honsunrise commented on 2020-11-06 18:48 (UTC)

Why does this package need to depend on libvirt?

@nullbyte4532: Thank you, incorporated your fix to avoid the /usr/sbin symlink being replace in situ

I just got an error saying that /usr/sbin already exists in filesystem. In my system (i have manjaro installed, not vanilla arch) /usr/sbin is a symlink to /usr/bin This seemed to help:
