Wayland support requires setting a registry variable. See Wine 9.0 Changelog.

wine reg.exe add HKCU\\Software\\Wine\\Drivers /v Graphics /d x11,wayland

@gdebure Something is changing the build settings on your computer. Could be almost anything. Would be interested to know if you ever find it.

Indeed, it does build in a clean chroot... I can see a few diffs between the system's makepkg.conf and the chroot one, but not sure they are relevant:

diff /etc/makepkg.conf /var/lib/archbuild/extra-x86_64/root/etc/makepkg.conf

<         -Wp,-D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=3 -Wformat -Werror=format-security \
<         -fstack-clash-protection -fcf-protection \
<         -fno-omit-frame-pointer -mno-omit-leaf-frame-pointer"
>         -Wp,-D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2 -Wformat -Werror=format-security \

< RUSTFLAGS="-Cforce-frame-pointers=yes"

Well, it looks like the original makepkg.conf from pacman 6.1 uses these LDFLAGS:

LDFLAGS="-Wl,-O1 -Wl,--sort-common -Wl,--as-needed -Wl,-z,relro -Wl,-z,now

(source :

I will try building in a clean chroot.

Why is it trying to use lld? Do you have LDFLAGS and other variables set somewhere else? Try building in clean chroot.

# Make a backup of my makepkg.conf
sudo mv /etc/makepkg.conf /etc/makepkg.conf.back
# Reinstall pacman to recover original makepkg.conf
sudo pacman -S pacman
# Compare files
diff /etc/makepkg.conf /etc/makepkg.conf.back

Results in

< #MAKEFLAGS="-j2"
> MAKEFLAGS="-j20"

Relaunched makepkg -is but exactly the same output. What am I doing wrong ?

@xiota, hmmm this is strange, to my knowledge the only change I made was to uncomment this line to allow parallel compilation:


I will restore the original file from the package and see what happens.

xiota commented on 2024-04-22 04:52 (UTC)

@gdebure The -fuse-ld=lld in your output indicates makepkg.conf has been modified. This package builds successfully in a clean chroot.

I get the following message when installing on a fresh archlinux install:

This is an error since --enable-archs=x86_64 was requested.

It is not clear to me what I should install prior to installing wine-wow64. Should something more be listed as build dependencies ?

@kby, you are doing it wrong, read

It took me 4m 38s on Ryzen 7700X with all 16 threads utilized and building on tmpfs ramdisk.

Any tips to decrease compilation time? I've tried -j8 for the make call in build(), but that didn't make it any faster. Right now, the entire process takes about an hour for me.
