I get a segmentation fault when trying to use Voodoo Graphics on Windows 95. I use the same drivers and configuration on a Windows 10 host PC, so the issue is unique to the Linux version of PCem.

I thought that builds using wxgtk3 were broken, but it turns out it is only broken when running under Wayland. Wxgtk2 doesn't support Wayland and so didn't have the same issue.

I am changing the dependency to wxgtk3, but a workaround when running under Wayland is to run the command as 'GDK_BACKEND=x11 pcem'. That makes the application run using Xwayland.

Can you please update the dependency to wxwidgets-gtk3? From their page, it requires wxWidgets 3.x.

I'm not using this package currently so someone else should pick it up.

After uninstalling pcem to upgrade wxwidgets, I was able to get this to build by changing the wxgtk2 depends to wxwidgets-gtk3. This build completed and I was able to launch it. I don't know if there are any other issues at this time with this change though.

-> Installing wxgtk-common will remove: wxwidgets-common (wxgtk-common)

When building with devtools, it gives this error:
==> Starting prepare()...
/startdir/PKGBUILD: line 17: ../use-fcommon.patch: No such file or directory

patch -p0 <"${srcdir}/use-fcommon.patch"
instead of
patch -p0 <../use-fcommon.patch

Egh. Should be fixed.

Tons of build errors at the ld stage. Multiple definition conflicts.

==> Starting build()...
checking for snd_pcm_open in -lasound... no
You need to install the ALSA library.
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

Fixed by adding alsa-lib to depends
