Just a heads up, commit 6c18c177036b271bb2519935c2be5a4b0b8fff47 broke RetroArch on processors with TSX support (certain Broadwell and newer processors, check cpuinfo for "hle" and "rtm"). You'll get a Segfault (lock elision if you backtrace it) in this scenario.

Reverting that specific commit allows RetroArch to work as normal on those processors. More information can be found here -

EDIT: Upstream have modified the piece of code that was triggering the SEGFAULT so that it no-longer happens. The rollback is no-longer required.

EDIT 2: This is now broken again upstream as of commit 6a9fb1186d8841a899b19b45a04508e027e12632 (which re-reverts the earlier fix).

Can you add the following lines before configure in the script...

git submodule init
git submodule update

This is needed for Vulkan support to actually work.

I've found out that "git describe --first-parent --tags" reports the correct version.

chicomag commented on 2015-12-22 16:07

Why does "git describe --long --tags" report "v1.2.1-something" and not "v1.2.2-something"?

...on the heels of the last comment: jack2 and openal are dependencies? Why is that?

evilsephiroth commented on 2015-10-30 23:43

hmm, is it normal that I get a conflict between jack and jack2?

I'll remove it for now. Packaging libretro-super might be good but it's fairly complicated.

Brottweiler commented on 2015-09-26 23:34

Or you can remove the super dependency, like the maintainer of "retroarch" did.

Brottweiler commented on 2015-09-26 23:30

The libretro-super-git AUR package doesn't exist as of AUR 4.0, maybe you'd like to take it over?

To get retroarch-joyconfig, you need to add 'install -m755 -t "${pkgdir}/usr/bin" "tools/retroarch-joyconfig"' below the 'make install' directive in the package() function.
