Please change the QEMU dependency to qemu-desktop. The qemu-base package does not provide features which quickemu either requires or optionally depends upon. There have been many issues reported upstream due to this incorrect dependency.

Looking in the history of this thread, apparently that package caused some other issues. In that case, these will be the dependencies you need. qemu-audio-pa qemu-audio-spice qemu-chardev-spice qemu-hw-display-virtio-vga-gl qemu-hw-display-virtio-gpu-gl qemu-hw-display-qxl qemu-hw-usb-smartcard qemu-hw-usb-redirect qemu-ui-sdl. In addition, for other display options which are accessible in quickemu, you'll need qemu-ui-gtk qemu-ui-spice-app qemu-ui-spice-core. The issues with the qemu-desktop package may have been resolved though, since qemu-full now depends on qemu-desktop rather than conflicting with it. Other packages such as gnome-boxes also already depend on qemu-desktop, I find it unlikely many people will experience conflicts.

I had to install a few other packages for quickemu to work. Should these be made dependencies? qemu-hw-display-virtio-vga-gl, qemu-hw-display-virtio-gpu-gl, qemu-audio-pa, qemu-hw-usb-redirect, qemu-hw-usb-smartcard

I think only these changes in the PKGBUILD are needed. Thx ;-)

New release 4.6 which addresses the Windows DL, along with other fixes that were merged.

Hey (new to AUR arch linux in general) I get a error, that "Download URL not leading to microsoft CDN" when i try to create a windows 10 VM. Ubuntu 22.10 works just fine, just to add, so the program works and installed correctly Don't know if i missed a patch or something where it was fixed.

I am having an error while running macos-catalina. If qemu-audio-pa isn't installed, i get the error of audio: Unknown audio driver `pa'. Should this be made a Dependancy? I don't know if this is just an edge case or if other people are having this problem.

Coreutils, grep, procps, sed, and util-linux should not be dependencies since they are members (or dependency of members) of the base-devel group.

edk2-ovmf should not be a dependency since it's already required by qemu

Thanks @sekret. Looks like it's a new dependency - I've added it.

Please add socat as a dependency or at least as an optional dependency. Quickemu complaints about it missing with a Windows 11 installation. It's also listed as a dependency on the github page.
