@paumars: I built it before pushing the new version. Will look at it asap.

Tried again on my real computer and in a chroot. Build process worked flawlessly. I do not understand.

My build just failed.

@Icarus_Radio : this package is modular. Some parts are conflicting. Just build it and install which parts you want.

Icarus_Radio commented on 2019-04-08 14:53

error: unresolvable package conflicts detected
error: failed to prepare transaction (conflicting dependencies)
:: qemu-headless-git and qemu-git are in conflict

How to solve this problem?

Currently '!strip' option doesn't have an effect when added, due to the stripping stage in the upstream build system. Please consider this patch to save the next person some trouble:

diff --git a/PKGBUILD b/PKGBUILD

I can send this to the Arch repo qemu package maintainer, if you would rather avoid forking from them any further.

@Linux2Brain :


virtio-vga / virtio-gpu is a paravirtual 3D graphics driver based on virgl. Currently a work in progress, supporting only very recent (>= 4.4) Linux guests with mesa (>=11.2) compiled with the option --with-gallium-drivers=virgl.

To enable 3D acceleration on the guest system select this vga with -vga virtio and enable the opengl context in the display device with -display sdl,gl=on or -display gtk,gl=on for the sdl and gtk display output respectively."

Just try to look at this section in Archlinux wiki.

NB: HOW DO I GET NEWLINES IN COMMENTS? \n, \r\n or <br> don't work.

@FredBezies: since packages were built successfully, I installed them manually from /tmp/yaourt... and it worked.

After reboot I tried virgl in a knoppix live-iso (native window, not via vnc or spice), but it doesn't seem to work:

knoppix@Microknoppix:~$ dmesg|grep drm

@linux2brain: or use an AUR wrapper which supports split packages.


Just try a fully green line :)

Linux2Brain commented on 2018-03-13 09:20

@FredBezies: manual install from sources directly ?

FredBezies commented on 2018-03-13 09:18

@linux2brain: just don't use any AUR wrapper which automatically install this split package like yaourt.

It will work better.
