Don't flag this package out of date. It always tries to build the HEAD of master.

Pam module is now enabled create the group gamemode and add yourself if so needed.

lib32 version now included in this recipe.

@ysblokje ... i have no words. i did 3 clean builds, and gamemode didnt get the correct cpugovctl path. tried with a reboot and deleting the gamemode-git cache folder, did another clean build and now it works, dunno what happened. anyway thanks.

Strange. I did do a clean build and it works for me (it looks in the right place for the cpugovctl). FYI the official arch package uses the exact same execdir location as I am now using.

@ysblokje noticed, but you added the fullpath. now i get:

Error accessing /usr/lib/cpugovctl: No such file or directory

❯ locate cpugovctl


just use:

--libexecdir lib

@pbo, I made a small change to the package, can you tell me if this remedies the situation for you?

@ysblokje don't know if is something wrong on my system, but using this PKGBUILD gamemode isn't able to find "cpugovctl", it gets installed in /usr/libexec/ but gamemode looks for it in /usr/lib/ ... had to edit the PKG on line 23 from this:

meson gamemode build --prefix /usr -Dwith-systemd-user-unit-dir=/usr/lib/systemd/user -Dwith-privileged-group=gamemode

to this:

meson gamemode build --prefix /usr --libexecdir lib -Dwith-systemd-user-unit-dir=/usr/lib/systemd/user -Dwith-privileged-group=gamemode

warning: directory permissions differ on /usr/share/polkit-1/rules.d/ filesystem: 750 package: 755

Is this upstream or package maintainer and what should I do?

@veganvelociraptr, they fixed it upstream. I have removed the patch and it should compile again.

@ysblokje thanks a lot!! and also thanks for your hard work!

ysblokje commented on 2022-08-11 16:56 (UTC)

@fsyy that was my mistake I've changed it a bit, should be fine now.
