Description johannes 2021-01-07 20:35:15 UTC
Hi there,
qemu-utils have been broken since 1st Nov.
Mayb I propose we just disconnect the qemu-utils port from qemu and make it standalone? 

I'll see if I can update the makefile but the current double-patch is really confusing. In the past I've given up because of that...

Created attachment 221445 [details]
Updated configure patch

Same problem here (obviously). Created an updated patch and sent it to the maintainer on the 5th, but have no feedback yet.

Sorry for the lack of response.  I've been dealing with a family emergency for the past month.  (It's still ongoing, so my time is very limited.)

Disconnecting qemu-utils from qemu sounds like a good idea, since qemu-utils just gets broken every time
Comment 3 Kenneth D. Merry freebsd_committer 2021-01-10 20:44:11 UTC
Didn't finish my comment..

qemu-utils seems to get broken every time qemu is updated.

So, possible solutions are disconnecting it from qemu, or getting the qemu maintainer to take over qemu-utils, and update them both at the same time.
Comment 4 Michael Pape 2021-01-10 21:02:17 UTC
What would your preferred way be? Are you in touch with the QEMU maintainer?
Comment 5 Kenneth D. Merry freebsd_committer 2021-01-11 14:34:32 UTC
I suppose my preferred choice would just be to have the QEMU maintainer take it over.

He's on the CC list for this bug.

I will have a look at it during my next upgrade.
