I gotchu. It was more an attempt to better match the AppImage / Flatpak build scripts then anything else.

Packages generally shouldn't use ccache. Can interfere with reproducibility, mask packaging errors, etc.

This package is fixed

My only concern is it breaks in the future because of some change or, another. And we'll have to re-up the other pcsx2 package on this which is why I did the package style I did in the first place, lower maintenance cost on both fronts.

That said if you guys are absolutely adamantly certain this is the better way, that's fine.

@xiota Yeah, that was sort of my point. setcap is run in post_install, so if we use patchelf in build or install, setcap capabilities would not be removed. I like this approach though, set rpath, build lib with pcsx2, move it to opt with the binary, etc.

@weirdbeard, do you have any thoughts?

@patlefort Which capabilities are you referring to? The appiamge build script in the pcsx2 repo uses linuxdeploy to create the AppDir, which when passed the --library flag uses patchelf to set the rpath on the binary to $ORIGIN/../lib. You can check this against the binary packed in the appimage.

About patchelf: If you use --add-rpath, it will undo setcap which could explain why it suddenly start working. EDIT: if patchelf modifies anything in the executable, capabilities are lost.
