Appears to fail pretty badly building in a chroot (same chroot base builds ~1k other packages fine):

@honsunrise: Good question; that seems like an oversight (I just adopted this recipe)

Why does this package need to depend on libvirt?

@nullbyte4532: Thank you, incorporated your fix to avoid the /usr/sbin symlink being replace in situ

nullbyte4532 commented on 2020-10-07 08:26

I just got an error saying that /usr/sbin already exists in filesystem. In my system (i have manjaro installed, not vanilla arch) /usr/sbin is a symlink to /usr/bin This seemed to help:

@hakayova Your issue revolves around the build process of libvirt detecting that you have Wireshark on your system and trying to build in a specific Wireshark library which doesn't get packaged on Arch even though it gets packaged on Fedora. There used to be a work around on the old build system but I'm not quite sure what equivalent of "--without-wireshark-dissector" is for meson. For now, the easiest workaround is to uninstall wireshark while building this package or to build this package in a clean chroot.

@FredBezies: I am still getting the same error. Please see the screenshot at Perhaps I should uninstall and reinstall...

@FredBezies Issue seems fixed with latest version. Thank you.

FredBezies commented on 2020-09-07 14:25

@mskrip: I think I fixed the lib64 bug. Please try again.

mskrip commented on 2020-09-07 13:43

I'm not sure why, but installing this package changes my /usr/lib64 from symlink to /usr/lib to an actual folder. This results in an issue when, after rebuilding the kernel, I cannot even boot the system. I had to manually change the folder to the symlink, then rebuild the kernel with mkinitcpio -P to fix the booting the issue.

Also after uninstalling the package, the /usr/lib64 gets removed altogether.
