@NoobAlice Well the latest commit was created on 4 Dec of 2019, so there's no way Ventoy, which started development on 5 Apr of 2020, displaced multibootusb or demotivated developer to maintain his project. I recommend you to switch to Ventoy, since they using same grub stuff for loading isos, but with more convenient functionality, like you just leaving your isos on Ventoy drive and it just boots after selection. If it's not booting, at least maintainer of Ventoy is answering issues on his GitHub.

Domain multibootusb.org is expired. There is a comment on the Github issues page that is saying this project may be stopped in favor of ventoy. :(

Updated package. Added patch with fixes, so program should open now.

Any hint?

Thanks a lot!

@SSYH for God's sake, update your packages database, please. You trying to retrieve python-pyudev version 0.22-2, but 0.22-3 is available about one month. You didn't updating your databases that long?

I just tried, and experienced this:

Please add the udisks2 runtime dependency.

javierrivera commented on 2020-02-06 17:48

@nobicycle: Please read Terseus comment, this version is not compatible with python3.8 (current Arch version), you need to use the usbmultboot-git package.
