Package is currently broken; needs to be updated to support GCC 6, etc.

Have tried modifying current PKGBUILD with -Wno-misleading-indentation flag on line 129:
export CFLAGS='-fno-caller-saves -Wno-misleading-indentation'

makepkg still fails to build.

Hi,

Can't compile from the AUR repo.

Here I get this error, same as the last comment.

non-fatal.c: In function 'init_nonfatal_mce_checker':
non-fatal.c:97:5: error: this 'if' clause does not guard... [-Werror=misleading-indentation]
if ( __get_cpu_var(poll_bankmask) == NULL )
^~
non-fatal.c:103:2: note: ...this statement, but the latter is misleadingly indented as if it is guarded by the 'if'
switch (c->x86_vendor) {
^~~~~~

after looking around a bit, it seems that the the 4.5.3 fixes this issues. Can the maintainer of this package update it ?

Thanks.

n.

I tried many times, but couldn't make this work - as other people also wrote... I then first re-compiled binutils ( http://stackoverflow.com/questions/20858175/how-to-boot-xen-hypervisor-from-uefi-using-gummiboot-under-arch-linux ) and then did "git clone https://gitlab.com/johnth/aur-xen/" followed by "makepkg" and maybe here I had to do "pacman -S mingw-w64-binutils" and finally "pacman -U xen-4.7.0-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz". xen-4.7.0-1 seemed to be installed, however I couldn't make xen work. This is the first time for me on arch linux. Later I downloaded https://gitlab.com/johnth/aur-xen/tree/xen-4.6 and repeated. I think this is better, although now I want to see if I can make it work with virt-manager. Just a hint of advice for anyone else who like me couldn't get the official arch Xen to work...

Hello all, this package fails to create domU after update libiscsi from libiscsi-1.13.0-1-x86_64 to libiscsi-1.17.0-2-x86_64,
After this update it's can't find "libiscsi.so.4"
Downgrade is helpful.

Is your plan to create a xen-4.5 package and keep xen as the most current? If so, you might want to consider creating a xen-4.6 package at the same time. That way someone who wants to stay on the 4.x release, never has to change packages.

I'm actually finishing rebuilding the system I usually developed on, to be able to ramp back up again - I have been watching the comments, just been tied up with some work issues

@frony0 I think it would be better to request to take over as maintainer instead of creating a new package. While having a xen-4.5 package wouldn't be bad, the xen package should track the latest version.

BeepDog, perhaps post your version to aur under the name "xen-4.6", since kantras seems to be AWOL?

I used the 4.6.1 packages that @JohnTh provided on gitlab: https://gitlab.com/johnth/aur-xen/tree/master

Works great, but does not include pvgrub (I guess that's part of stubdom?) I've got a feature request open for grub2 in core to include the PvGrub2 stuff:
http://wiki.xen.org/wiki/PvGrub2
and
https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/44201

I'm gonna try to build a custom grub package real quick so I can use that pvgrub2, because it's supposed to be WAY better than pvgrub and pygrub.
