@mbroemme: No problem, thanks for reply and for your work on xen package. Have an awesome weekend!

@k96hkh: I believe xen 4.11.0 will come out in the next 2 weeks. Is it okay to wait this 2 weeks and I will update the PKGBUILD as soon as 4.11.0 is out.

I'm afraid I got stuck with same error as "Anonym" and "tendermonster", any idea what I can do to get xen to build? I guess I could build from 4.11-rcX like "tendermonster" but I would prefer to use the AUR package. Cheers!

My lil story on installing xen from aur:

i got the same error what "Anonym commented on 2018-06-21 15:01" got. Then i tried to compile xen myself from gitrepo but failed with save error. I tries fixing it my editing countless c++ files, but at the end i gave up when i encountered "util.o: In function hvmloader_acpi_build_tables': util.c:(.text+0x183e): undefined reference todsdt_anycpu_qemu_xen' util.c:(.text+0x1b52): undefined reference to dsdt_anycpu' util.c:(.text+0x1b65): undefined reference todsdt_15cpu' ovmf.o: In function ovmf_acpi_build_tables': ovmf.c:(.text+0xf8): undefined reference todsdt_anycpu_qemu_xen' seabios.o: In function seabios_acpi_build_tables': seabios.c:(.text+0x25a): undefined reference todsdt_anycpu_qemu_xen' rombios.o: In function rombios_acpi_build_tables': rombios.c:(.text+0x68): undefined reference todsdt_anycpu' rombios.c:(.text+0x7e): undefined reference to `dsdt_15cpu' " errors. I have no idea what really causes it(Makefile in tools/firmware/hvmloader?)

After that I just compiled the more uptodate "i guess" 4.11-rcX from and all just worked fine.

Just install all required packaged "make gcc lib32-gcc-libs lib32-fakeroot lib32-libltdl seabios patch autoconf pkgconf linux-headers zlib python python-pip python-lxml xorg-server haskell-uuid yajl libaio glib2 bridge-utils bison flex acpica cmake markdown figlet bin86 dev86 python2 python-pip fig2dev wget pandoc patch" and configure; make; install

Just to be on the safe side use python2 and gcc7 also link then to gcc and python with ln -s /usr/bin/python2 /usr/bin/python and ls -s /usr/bin/gcc-7 /usr/bin/gcc

It would ne cool if anyone would notify me if the problem resolves on xen 4.10.1

Much thx and have a sunny day :)

when compiling dsdt_anycpu.c, I get the following error dsdt_anycpu.c:7495:28: Error:‘dsdt_anycpu’ undeclared here (not in a function); did you mean ‘dsdt_anycpu_len’? int dsdt_anycpu_len=sizeof(dsdt_anycpu); ^~~~~~~~~~~ dsdt_anycpu_len

@daniel_shub AFAIK, this is a new feature in GCC 8, which will be an error if -Werror is used. If you need the build ASAP, then you can downgrade your GCC.

I am building in a clean chroot. I get the following error;

xc_pm.c:308:5: error: 'strncpy' specified bound 16 equals destination size [-Werror=stringop-truncation] strncpy(scaling_governor, govname, CPUFREQ_NAME_LEN);

It looks like there may be a patch for it

@virtualdxs: I've fixed OVMF system path, also added XSA-258 and glibc-2.27 compilation fix.

Regarding build failure, it looks like there was a previosuly applied patch in the src/ directory. Did you do rm -R src/ pkg/ before trying another compilation?
