@banzr this package must conflict with vanilla snes9x and snes9x-gtk, since they provide the same files. You noted "I get an error that snes9x conflicts with snes9x-git-gtk." That is not true. The conflicts is "snes9x, snes9x-gtk" not "snes9x, snes9x-git-gtk". The provides should not be "package-git", but always "package" when there is an existing package, AUR or not, that provides the same files. Since the base package builds both, I will adjust the conflicts so snes9x-gtk-git conflcits with snes9x-gtk, and snes9x-git conflicts with snes9x only. gtk should not conflict with non-gtk.

There's a simple error that I receive after successfully building the snes9x-git-gtk package. As soon as I attempt to install the snes9x package I get an error that snes9x conflicts with snes9x-git-gtk. Please remove these conflicts or change your snes9x-git package to provide snes9x-git. I prefer removing the conflicts unless there is some incompatibility with your gtk layer with the vanilla snes9x package. Removing the conflict allowed my package to build flawlessly. I didn't have the vanilla snes9x package previously installed before building your package.

Thanks, I was able to install without problems using the chroot method.

ProfessorKaos64 commented on 2016-10-09 15:45

See the below. Seems a few touch commands will help this.

It is difficult to reproduce this. Sometimes it manifests itself, other times, not. Keep in mind this is a dormant project and doesn't have much activity at all. I would suggest clearing you package cache if using a helper like pacaur (~/.cache/pacaur/snes9x-git).

ProfessorKaos64 commented on 2016-10-09 11:46

The PKGBUILD produces two packages. As for the errors, I'll try soon, but I always test with makechrootpkg and a clean chroot, so it's unlikely that it's this build. I would suggest cloning the upstream repository and manually compiling things to check it isn't your system. Also, you could check the arch wiki for building in a clean chroot, which is also a good idea.

I'm getting this error when building:

src/filter_xbrz.cpp:258:81: error: ‘RGB’ is not a member of ‘xbrz’
gFactor, &renderBuffer[0], &xbrzBuffer[0], width, height, xbrz::RGB, xbrz::ScalerCfg(), 0, height);

@shudouken I see your edit. Then something must be wrong with either a dependency you have installed (reinstall them?), the source files, or something else. I'm not sure what else to tell you. Check that all commands involved and respective packages are fully up to date, including pacman (which provides makepkg). Also ensure that in any directory, cache dir or not, that src/ pkg/ and snes9x-git/ are gone before a build for a full test, or like I said, build in an empty dir.

ProfessorKaos64 commented on 2016-09-21 15:06

@shudouken, I'm not quite sure then. Building in a clean chroot is as much as I can validate from my end. I also updated via pacaur, passing --devel to force rebuild the git source. Here is a log of a clean chroot build with a freshly cloned source: With offending configure option causing warning removed:

The "configure: WARNING: unrecognized options: --with-sdd1-decomp" is thrown, but the compilation then starts fine. I also ran makepkg -f after a package was already built, to see if an older file conflicted in $srcdir. I did remove the invalid option noted in the WARNING line. Please give me a full log of your build with makepkg in a clean directory.

shudouken commented on 2016-09-21 14:27

I tried both pacaur and makepkg after uninstalling the old package and cleaning my build directory, but I still get the same error everytime.

Edit: It worked with a clean chroot, weird.

ProfessorKaos64 commented on 2016-09-21 12:39

@shudouken. I do not get that option. I even tested on a clean chroot with 'makechrootpkg -c -r $CHROOT'. What are you using to build? makepkg/pacaur/yaourt? I updated the PKBUILD, as I was missing git, but that's about it. Maybe uninstalling/purging and resinstalling will do the trick. Try a manual build with makepkg, or clear your cached package contents in ~/.cache or wherever your AUR helper puts them.

Hello, this fails to build for me.

configure: creating ./config.status
config.status: creating Makefile
configure: WARNING: unrecognized options: --with-sdd1-decomp
configure is older than in-file. Run autoconf or touch configure.

After digging through a bunch of forums, I figured out how to make the Disable Screensaver option to actually work!!
Very easy, all you have to do is add:

system ("xdg-screensaver reset");

at line 1539 of gtk_s9xwindow.cpp and rebuilding.

This package needs a name change to match what is already in Arch Community. Something like snes9x-gtk-git would make more sense.

In Community there are two versions of snes9x:
* the X11 port "snes9x" (, and
* the GTK port "snes9x-gtk" (

I would like to add the plain X11 port to AUR, but the name is already taken by this GTK version...

Orphaning so someone with interest can adopt this.

bzt commented on 2013-05-02 06:06

Updated. Thanks for the PKGBUILD.

Boohbah commented on 2013-05-02 04:12

Here is a PKGBUILD for pacman 4.1
