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.

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

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.

hakayova: works for me today. I also cleaned up a little PKGBUILD. Please, try again.

Last update dated September 2 does not compile for me. Below is the summary of error messages I get:

FAILED: tools/wireshark/src/ ... ../tools/wireshark/src/packet-libvirt.c:21:10: fatal error: wireshark/config.h: No such file or directory 21 | #include <wireshark/config.h> | ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ compilation terminated. [594/1185] Compiling C object tools/wireshark/src/ FAILED: tools/wireshark/src/

Thanks for the guidance.

@FredBezies: All good now. Thank you, sir.

@lucasrizzini: migrate build process to ninja. Please report any remaining bug. Will try to fix these asap.
