@FFY00 oh please do!

In regards to CIS, this is the only package remaining that we use outside of the official repos.

Hey, I want to move this to the official repos. Are you ok with that?

@mbroemme - do you plan on dropping the python2 dependency in favor of python? Also, would you be willing to consider switching the brltty dependency to the brltty-minimal available in AUR?

Thanks in advance!

4.13.0 is available, will built and merge all changes requested in the comments in the next few days.

I have spent many hours the last days trying to get a VM running with UEFI (ovmf), but Xen keeps crashing (visible by "xl dmesg").

It is related to the used Arch ovmf package in combination with the Xen configure parameter in PKGBUILD

--with-system-ovmf=/usr/share/ovmf/x64/OVMF_CODE.fd

After removing this parameter, Xen uses its 'native' ovmf binary provided by

/usr/lib/xen/boot/ovmf.bin

and not the one from the arch ovmf package provided by

/usr/share/ovmf/x64/OVMF_CODE.fd /usr/share/ovmf/x64/OVMF_VARS.fd

Would you mind to either (for now) remove the ovmf configure parameter and/or solve the cause of the crashing Xen with the Arch ovmf package?

I ran into the same libiscsi.so.8 problem. Re-compiling Xen and re-installing resolved the issue.

Post upgrade, xen cannot start Windows HVM since libiscsi got upgraded. Can you make that dependency build-time version specific?

[2019-11-15T12:09:35-0500] [ALPM] upgraded libiscsi (1.18.0-1 -> 1.19.0-1)

/usr/lib/libiscsi.so.9

I had to add this line to the PKGBUILD file:

Compile fixes.
  • sed 's/CFLAGS += -fPIC -Werror -I$(shell ocamlc -where)/CFLAGS += -fPIC -I$(shell ocamlc -where)/' -i tools/ocaml/common.make
