For anyone interested opencbm_plugin_helper_tools seems to be broken on Arch, so you need to copy /etc/opencbm.conf.sample to /etc/opencbm.conf and set your preferred default plugin within that copied config.

just wish I could get it to work now, don't see a device appear and keep getting:

cbmctrl: NO PLUGIN DRIVER!: No such file or directory

udev rules seem OK and are loaded.

I can see the zoomfloppy using lsusb, and can communicate with it using: xum1541cfg devinfo finding device... xum1541 device, model 2 (ZOOMFLOPPY), firmware version 8

@BennehBoy no problem - good to hear that you got it working :-)

@BennehBoy Regarding build failure with cc65 - ok that explains...

BTW: I just did a rebuild the AUR package for cc65-2.19 and it compiled fine on my system...

BennehBoy commented on 2024-05-28 19:02 (UTC)

OK, all good now that I built using cc65-git.


BennehBoy commented on 2024-05-28 18:53 (UTC)

OK, my bad, it's actually cc65 that fails to build.

The git version also fails to build.

Output is too large for pastebin btw.

It's too large for my console history :D

These seem to be the germane parts:

@BennehBoy: a little more info would be helpful - any errors ?

if want you could provide the full compile output on a online copy/paste service as this system has a limit of 5000 chars...

BTW: I just tested and built opencbm - and it compiled fint - below is the output from the last stages of the build...

==> Tidying install...

  -> Purging unwanted files...
  -> Removing static library files...
  -> Stripping unneeded symbols from binaries and libraries...

==> Leaving fakeroot environment.
==> Finished making: opencbm (2024-05-28T20:19:34 CEST)
==> Cleaning up...

The problem as simple a missing dependency in PKGBUILD - one that I have installed on my system.

Are you able to build the "opencbm-git" AUR package ? it is more recent

Unable to get this to build currently.
