Running aircrack-ng fails with

F: Failed to spawn binary: No such file or directory

Strace says:

execve("/usr/local/libexec/aircrack-ng/aircrack-ng--avx", ["/usr/local/libexec/aircrack-ng/a"...], 0x5637f48122c0 /* 1 var */) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)

So it seems that /usr/local is being used somewhere in the build that it shouldn't be.

vesath: Yeah you are right, thanks!

Miegl: Your pkgver() function is not monotonic. Currently the AUR version is 1.2.rc5.r13.gce4e9c3c-1 but I did a rebuild a few days ago and got 1.2.r28.g94fe3e02-1. However vercmp considers the latter older than the former.

My suggestion with git packages is to use the following pkgver() function, which ensures that it is increasing:

pkgver() {
    cd "${srcdir}/${_pkgname}"
    git log -1 --format='%cd.%h' --date=short | tr -d -

No worries, Miegl, you'll do just fine. And if myself or others have any suggestions for improving the package we'll just share them with you. Cheers.

@vesath Thank you! I was kinda worried about dependencies being wrong, thanks for clearing that up for me.

As far as maintainership goes, I'm OK with you being the maintainer as I clearly don't have enough experience.

Upstream has moved their code repository to github. The package aircrack-ng-svn is now deprecated and should be replaced by aircrack-ng-git. Cheers.

Thanks for the update and happy maintaining!

Other issues regarding dependencies:

  • python is required at build time (otherwise the configure script aborts) and then at run time for dump-join, airgraph-ng, versuck-ng, and airdrop-ng

  • sqlite is required at run time (it's a dependency of gnupg in [base] so it gets pulled anyhow)

  • gcc-libs is required at run time (used in usr/libexec/aircrack-ng/*)

  • shtool is not required (should be removed to avoid AUR dependencies)

  • libtool is not required (should be removed)

Here's an updated PKGBUILD:

I'm the maintainer of aircrack-ng-svn; I've just noticed upstream moved to github, yay! I'd like to merge my package into yours, so yours will get the votes mine had.

Before that I'd like to ask you fix a few issues with your PKGBUILD:

  • You apparently started off with my PKGBUILD but dropped acknowledgement of all previous maintainers/contributors; it's really not nice. Please add those back.

  • The packages ('autoconf' 'automake' 'pkg-config' 'make' 'gcc-libs') need not be in the makedepends array since they are part of the base-devel group.

Works just fine for me. And since I do not speak Italian and Yaourt is an unsupported tool, there is nothing I can do to help.
