I thought of zluda2 before but it might interfere with mainline v2 in the future. Anyway, regarding the new version there seems to be an active fork:

@drws splitting a package into different versions of the same upstream software should be avoided, as different versions usually requires totally different maintenance actions. Instead, a different package should be created for each desired version. See versioned packages in the official repositories (for example, gcc, llvm, etc). And the package should not be named 'zluda-intel' IMHO, but 'zluda2' to reflect the version, with the target hardware being explained in pkgdesc. Besides, I have found no reasonable/acceptable way to build version 3 here, since it depends on outdated/unsupported rocm.

It would probably be best if the current PKGBUILD was split off into zluda-intel package (v2) and this one updated to v3.

@RAMChYLD Theoretically yes. But the upstream developer clearly states that the current state of the project is now abandoned. So I think this is not probable in the near future.

Since the code is now open-source, is it possible to make upstream reinstate support for Intel so it works with both AMD and Intel GPUs?

@compiler1413 Yes, upstream dropped support for Intel GPUs in the latest version and now offers support only for AMD GPUs.

compiler1413 commented on 2024-02-12 16:28 (UTC) v3 is released and Intel support was dropped? It's CUDA for AMD gpus only now I think

@dreieck Sorry, but I could not understand what you mean. This package does not provide any other software that already exists, so there is nothing to be placed in the provides array. What do you suggest to be placed in the provides array?

dreieck commented on 2023-06-01 10:48 (UTC)

When it is a drop-in replacement, I think something should be added to the provides array (i.e. that stuff that it really replaces in a drop-in fashion).
