Fails to build in clean chroot. Python 3.12.

To fix the old setup.py, you need to patch it so the "newer" function comes from the right place.

Had issues with install not finding m64py module, so I reinstalled with yay. Running into an error that it can't find the sdl2 python module. Running pacman -Qi shows that I have sdl2 & python-pysdl2 installed.

frealgagu commented on 2023-03-13 13:06 (UTC)

@mxhdrm is the error still happening? I was able to install without issues after the patch

On commit 3f824a93b9791f70f0302964de33736b8533e813 downloading and building the package fails.

This error results from a new version of packaging. Forcefully downgrading this package resolves this issue.

pip install --force-reinstall "packaging==21.3"

I've added a patch to fix the core dump. Please confirm that you are able to use m64py.

Archlinux, wayland/sway. Tested with QT_QPA_PLATFORM=xcb and same issue.

Trying to load the emulator from my desktop doesn't yield any results, but if I use the command m64py, I get this output followed by an exit:

I should note that this is on EndeavourOS, so maybe it works for Arch users?

I use your github prebuild package and as soon as I start it then report this error:

~ m64py Can't import m64py modules Error:No module named 'm64py'

M64py doesn't work anymore with the latest Python 3.10 version. If there is a workaround, let me know...
