Confirming @phiresky. Same here, download return 403 to me.

For some reason the repo and everything seems gone? and

both show 404, so this package doesn't build.

I don't know if it's a glitch or if the author deleted the repo. But a copy of the current version is here and the package builds fine with it:

@effeffe Thanks for your advice! I'll keep that in mind for future comments or requests.

effeffe commented on 2023-03-30 09:38 (UTC)

@darude that is because you have not installed base-devel, which is a requirement to build from AUR. Also, please note that Manjaro development is done on a best effort basis, as the packages here need to be mainly designed to work for ArchLinux first, and other distro later

darude commented on 2023-03-30 09:09 (UTC)

Please add a dependency for package patch. Atleast on manjaro its not installed by default.

The SHA512 hash for xboxdrv-0.8.8.tar.gz is wrong, and the PKGBUILD is expecting a 'v' in the version number of the source directory.

EDIT: Figured it out, my makepkg.conf had a typo.

Manually installed all dependencies and got this result through yay (cleanBuild) and manually with makepkg -s PKGBUILD

==> Starting build()...
usage: scons [OPTION] [TARGET] ...

SCons Error: option -j: invalid integer value: '&(nproc)'

 -> error making: xboxdrv

In the service file, PIDFile=/var/run/ should be changed to something like PIDFile=/run/xboxdrv. With it under /var, systemd logs the following warning:

/usr/lib/systemd/system/xboxdrv.service:8: PIDFile= references a path below legacy directory /var/run/, updating /var/run/ → /run/; please update the unit file accordingly.

Please change the URL to
Took some time to search where the project was moved. And that link is not working.
