Some issues concerning archlinux32.

Hello !

By testing archlinux32 on virtualbox, I faced few issues :
- vconsole.conf KEYMAP is ignored and it is bad for people with non-qwerty layouts (looks related to systemd-localed.service)
- virtualbox-guest-dkms can't build (not rule to build MakeFile_32.cpu)
- firefox don't work (issue with libicu)

Most of these can be workarrounded (virtualbox-guest-dkms by using virtualbox-guest-arch-modules instead, libicu from AUR, ...)

Re: Some issues concerning archlinux32.

All firefox issues I've experienced have also been resolved by using Andreas' AUR package although that's not a build from clean so something of a hack, but the build team are having trouble linking firefox at present, so it's either that or find an alternative browser for the time being.

Re: Some issues concerning archlinux32.

Makefile_32.cpu (note the different capitalization) is part of linux-header package (or linux-lts-header or linux-pae-header) - are you sure, you have that installed?

Re: Some issues concerning archlinux32.

Thanks for replies.

Makefile_32.cpu (note the different capitalization) is part of linux-header package (or linux-lts-header or linux-pae-header) - are you sure, you have that installed?

virtualbox-guest-dkms works on mainline kernel but not on Zen kernel.

(1/4) Updating linux-zen module dependencies...
(2/4) Install DKMS modules
==> dkms install vboxsf/5.2.18_OSE -k 4.18.5-zen1-1.0-zen-zen
Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 4.18.5-zen1-1.0-zen-zen (i686)
Consult /var/lib/dkms/vboxsf/5.2.18_OSE/build/make.log for more information.
...
$ yaourt -Qsq zen-headers
linux-zen-headers
$ cat /var/lib/dkms/vboxsf/5.2.18_OSE/build/make.log
DKMS make.log for vboxsf-5.2.18_OSE for kernel 4.18.5-zen1-1.0-zen-zen (i686)
mer. sept. 19 20:45:49 UTC 2018
make : on entre dans le répertoire « /usr/lib/modules/4.18.5-zen1-1.0-zen-zen/build »
arch/x86/Makefile:89: arch/x86/Makefile_32.cpu: Aucun fichier ou dossier de ce type
make: *** Aucune règle pour fabriquer la cible « arch/x86/Makefile_32.cpu ». Arrêt.
make : on quitte le répertoire « /usr/lib/modules/4.18.5-zen1-1.0-zen-zen/build »

Even with linux-zen-headers, build fails, there is probably something wrong with linux-zen-headers package concerning i686 support.

All firefox issues I've experienced have also been resolved by using Andreas' AUR package although that's not a build from clean so something of a hack, but the build team are having trouble linking firefox at present, so it's either that or find an alternative browser for the time being.

Firefox Developper edition seems to work and is not too much different (just a bit outdated), so that's fine to me.

Dang, linux-zen-headers is indeed missing Makefile_32.cpu - the other kernels have it ... I'll look into it.
