I've update the PKGBUILD to 6.1.32, I pulled in the ArchRepo patches to support python3.10 and resolved a weird issue with kBuild (kmk_inbuilt_redirect was segfaulting for some reason, causing the build to fail. I did not look further into the issue, instead I changed kBuilder configuration to use an external tool instead which works fine now).

Please use the out of date flag as the name suggests. If there's a build problem, please post the details here in the comment instead. I have just rebuilt the package in clean chroot and it builds fine.

Then please try building in a clean chroot ( If it works, it is most probably a problem with yay and should be reported to them.

@KenjiTakahashi I get the exact same error as @LeoFa when installing via Yay

@LeoFa: This might have been related to compatibility problem with 5.6 kernels. It should be fixed in the new version, so please try again. I have just built it in clean chroot without issues.

do you have time to look into it?

Updated. I've seen that namcap is complaining about libglvnd dependency, which seems to be used be new(?) SVGA3D module. Decided to not add it, because it pulls lots of other packages. Let's see if it causes any real problems.

@LothaireFR: Not sure what you mean by "obsolete"? If you mean that it's outdated, then, well, it is.

Sorry for that, I've had problems with my dev machine for a while and no time to look into it. I just got it fixed today and am looking into compiling VBox 6.1.0, should update this soon.

Trying to install virtualbox-headless I got the following error:

using the following command line: g++ -O -Wall -o /tmp/packerbuild-1000/virtualbox-headless/virtualbox-headless/src/VirtualBox-6.0.6/.tmp_out /tmp/packerbuild-1000/virtualbox-headless/virtualbox-headless/src/VirtualBox-6.0.6/ -I/usr/local/include/python3.7m /usr/local/lib/ g++: error: /usr/local/lib/ No such file or directory ** Python not found!

I did "pacman -S python" which was already installed. And "packer -S nuitka". Both without any effect.

Is the package up-to-date and working?

Obsolete package.
