Latest release tarball (0.14.3) is affected by a bug when compiled with Meson. Arch is therefore affected.

Upstream report [1]

This issue came to light when trying to build QEMU from git. If we don't don't fix it now, it will likely bite in the future.

The upstream fix does not apply cleanly therefore I propose the following:

prepare() {
cd "$pkgname-$pkgver"
sed -i "s/if not version_info.contains('git')/if version_info.length() >= 4/" server/

I've analysed the dependent packages (qemu and xf86-video-qxl) and AFAICT a recompile is not needed (but I could do with a second opinion here).

This task depends upon

This QEMU build as of commit 9028ab1f5b is what's broken.

Just for your information, Qemu 5.2rc0 is out. 5.2 final will be available in 3 or 4 weeks from now.;a=commit;h=3d6e32347a3b57dac7f469a07c5f520e69bd070a

Following what Ben commented, 4bf47f3634af105b25c3c073ae53b36ba73733b4 is also screwed up, committed by the same guy :)

spice-0.14.3-3 has added the proposed patch. It seems fixes the compilation issue with the latest QEMU. Please take a look and make sure the package works for you as well.

It works for me. Thanks for the fix!
