Just realized the package was orphaned and that I was probably talking to myself. Fixed the build.

Build currently fails because of a missing glslang submodule. Here's my attempt at a fixed PKGBUILD:

valandil ~/build/snes9x-git $ cat glslang.diff 
diff --git a/PKGBUILD b/PKGBUILD
index 39de18d..9d8c13f 100644

This worked for me.

Hi, is it possible to add a GTK2 package or option? I noticed GTK3 does have a small impact on performance. GTK2 would only require the build line to be: 'arch-meson snes9x/gtk build -D gtk2=true -D gtk3=false -D wayland=false'

/snes9x-git/PKGBUILD: line 33: ./ No such file or directory
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
Error making: snes9x-git (snes9x-gtk-git)

I checked "ls /snes9x-git/src/snes9x-git/gtk/"
AUTHORS data meson_options.txt po src

There is no ./ file where PKGBUILD is calling it at "line 33"

cd ../gtk

Seems like snes9x-gtk depends on minizip :

snes9x-gtk: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

@banzr this package must conflict with vanilla snes9x and snes9x-gtk, since they provide the same files. You noted "I get an error that snes9x conflicts with snes9x-git-gtk." That is not true. The conflicts is "snes9x, snes9x-gtk" not "snes9x, snes9x-git-gtk". The provides should not be "package-git", but always "package" when there is an existing package, AUR or not, that provides the same files. Since the base package builds both, I will adjust the conflicts so snes9x-gtk-git conflcits with snes9x-gtk, and snes9x-git conflicts with snes9x only. gtk should not conflict with non-gtk.

There's a simple error that I receive after successfully building the snes9x-git-gtk package. As soon as I attempt to install the snes9x package I get an error that snes9x conflicts with snes9x-git-gtk. Please remove these conflicts or change your snes9x-git package to provide snes9x-git. I prefer removing the conflicts unless there is some incompatibility with your gtk layer with the vanilla snes9x package. Removing the conflict allowed my package to build flawlessly. I didn't have the vanilla snes9x package previously installed before building your package.

Thanks, I was able to install without problems using the chroot method.

See the below. Seems a few touch commands will help this.
