Don't flag this package out of date.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.

For compatibility with 32bit games see :

Currently I can't get gamemode to run at all I keep getting this error

ERROR: object '/usr/$LIB/' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded (cannot open shared object file): ignored.

and I have the systemd module running but when I run gamemoded -t fails but gamemoded -r shows it running. Anybody else having issues with it? I've been having these for about a month now before everything was fine.

@ysblokje I can confirm, thanks. What about changing gamemode group to wheel?

ysblokje commented on 2019-03-11 20:04

The install prefix should be fixed now.

Terence commented on 2019-03-11 19:25

A suggestion: use the group 'wheel' instead of gamemode for PAM to remove the use of having to create a new group just for this package.

Since the move to meson instead of arch-meson, you can't install it without having a conflict: gamemode-git: /usr/local/share/man exists in filesystem (owned by filesystem)

I agree with Terence - adding the PAM config to the build as he recommended would make this package much more useful. I've modified and built my own but it would be nice to have an OOTB option with everything working.

@ysblokje with you can now add -Dwith-pam-group=gamemode to arch-meson and ask to add the user to this group to solve the permission issue with nice.

Why did you go for a pkgver not using the tags?

Terence commented on 2018-10-01 10:34

Please use git describe --long --tags | sed 's/\([^-]*-g\)/r\1/;s/-/./g' instead of `echo $(git rev-parse --short HEAD) : there is no notion of order between checksums. This is what is causing @Plexcon's issue.

Pamac does not update correctly. Sample v. c3dce81-1. Pamac asks to update again.
