Thanks for the info about python2 deprecation.

Hey, building this today failed wit the following error.

ERROR: Cannot use '/usr/bin/python2', Python >= 3.5 is required.
       Use --python=/path/to/python to specify a supported Python.

I had to swap out python2 for python within the package build.

@FredBezies For some reason it builds just fine with the capstone-git package but not with the normal one, very odd.

@danhyal: try cleaning yay cache. It is miracolous :D

I have the same issue reported by paumars

FredBezies commented on 2019-07-08 10:19

@paumars: I built it before pushing the new version. Will look at it asap.

Tried again on my real computer and in a chroot. Build process worked flawlessly. I do not understand.

My build just failed.

@Icarus_Radio : this package is modular. Some parts are conflicting. Just build it and install which parts you want.

Icarus_Radio commented on 2019-04-08 14:53

error: unresolvable package conflicts detected
error: failed to prepare transaction (conflicting dependencies)
:: qemu-headless-git and qemu-git are in conflict

How to solve this problem?

Currently '!strip' option doesn't have an effect when added, due to the stripping stage in the upstream build system. Please consider this patch to save the next person some trouble:

I can send this to the Arch repo qemu package maintainer, if you would rather avoid forking from them any further.
