AUR VMware: ERROR: object ''

I’m trying to install the above package, but getting the error:

ERROR: object ‘’ from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded (cannot open shared object file): ignored.
/usr/bin/patch: **** Can’t change to directory /var/tmp/pamac-build-******/vmware-workstation/pkg/vmware-workstation/usr/src/vmware-workstation-16.1.2_17966106/vmmon-only : No such file or directory

Linux 5.12.9-1-MANJARO x86_64
Gnome 40.1.0

If you want to use AUR, please install base-devel package first …

I’ve confirmed that base-devel is installed and up to date.

Haven’t had any issues installing AUR packages until recently. Possibly an issue with this particular package? Installed the Heroic Launcher from AUR without any issues.

Not sure how to troubleshoot this issue, since the solutions I’ve found involve installing packages manually.

Don’t know where that package is looking for
probably requires

multilib/lib32-fakeroot 1.25.3-2 (multilib-devel)

hence need to install lib32-fakeroot package ??? :man_shrugging:

Installed the package, but getting the same result. Might need a restart. Will report back.

Installing this package unfortunately didn’t solve the problem.

In my system the command “find /”
give no result never hear of that library.
I have KDE and VMWare 16.1.2 build-17966106

pacman -Fx "libfakeroot" reveals that it’s supposed to be part of the base-devel group.
