For information, this driver is not needed anymore in sdl2 applications (mame, retroarch, etc.) since version 2.0.12 because there is internal support for the adapter.

@abouvier It works in retroarch (and dolphin obviously) but I can't get it to work in anything else at all. Specially the super mario 64 pc port. :(

That’s great info, thanks!

I have pinned the revision until something definitive is decided. Thanks for the report.

Oops, true, I was almost sure that I had a #commit=… in the source URL as I do for a few other packages but apparently, I misremembered.

I don’t think the pkgver function is particularly wrong, though, it doesn’t checkout anything. It prints “0.0.” followed by the number of revisions, hence 0.0.38. It’s not very robust to force-pushes and things like that but that’s another question.

But... it's true! There is no instructions to fetch a specific commit. Your pkgver() function is wrong by the way. Its purpose is to update the pkgver variable, not to checkout the git repo to a specific commit.

spider-mario commented on 2020-07-03 13:09

That would be true if it always fetched HEAD, but since it fetches a specific revision, I think it is exempt from this rule. It just happens to do that with git.

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/VCS_package_guidelines

Suffix pkgname with -cvs, -svn, -hg, -darcs, -bzr, -git etc. unless the package fetches a specific release.

(Emphasis mine.)

This package should be named wii-u-gc-adapter-git.

spider-mario commented on 2017-07-23 22:09

Do you mean the call to `modprobe`?

The package creates a file in /usr/lib/modules-load.d/ that should take care of loading the module on subsequent boots. If you do not wish to reboot, it is also possible to load the module by hand, and it should only be necessary to do it once.

Please add "systemctl daemon-reload" in [Service] in the service file (like in ccl2of4 file).
Adaptater doesn't work here without it.
