It works on my system, however I am all open to suggestions and improvements. :)

Hmm... Looks like the problem is because some of the code uses python 2 specific syntax but this package depends on python 3. Why is that? The main arch package uses python 2 and has a prepare() function that ensures the python2 binary is called.

This package fails to build in a clean chroot with extra-x86_64-build, so there are probably some missing dependencies.

Full output:
I added -j1 to make in the PKGBUILD to get less confusing error output.

Relevant error:

Okay, got it.

I have added chown and chmod statements (copied from the libvirt package from the arch package repository). I have also removed any installation instructions belonging to initd.

Would you mind to test and report back?

Are you suggesting that the absence of the two chmod statements result in the (localized) message of Policykit?

sl1pkn07 commented on 2015-12-28 20:34

because in the current pkgbuild, that part is missing

ArthurBorsboom commented on 2015-12-28 17:21

However, when I look in the current package build (upper right on this page), I don't see any chmod statements.


sl1pkn07 commented on 2015-12-28 17:02

my own pkgbuild. synchronized with libvirt from [community] and, i think, some tweaks and fixes

ArthurBorsboom commented on 2015-12-28 10:54

I guess the message comes from policy kit after these two commands from the PKGBUILD.

chmod 0770 "$pkgdir"/var/lib/libvirt/qemu
chmod 0750 "$pkgdir"/usr/share/polkit-1/rules.d

I have no knowledge of policy kit, so I need help.
Can you explain me what makes this too old and what should it be changed too?
