Package updated again, builds & works fine as of 2015-05-13

Flagging as out-of-date as building fails if the "xmlto" package isn't installed.

xmlto man alock.xml
make: xmlto: Command not found
GNUmakefile:85: recipe for target 'alock.1' failed

Have a good day,

This package should be reuploaded as "alock", because it does not pull from an svn-repo. Upstream uses git.

$ namcap alock-git-r91.09d2ad2-2-i686.pkg.tar.xz
alock-git E: Missing custom license directory (usr/share/licenses/alock-git)
alock-git E: Dependency libxxf86misc detected and not included (libraries ['usr/lib/'] needed in files ['usr/bin/alock'])

The issue is caused by buggy imlib2-config (, I prefer to wait until it is fixed.

tazjin commented on 2014-03-14 14:19

Bumped to pkgrel=2, now depends on and enables pam support by default.

Flagging as out-of-date since imlib2 1.4.6-1 breaks building:

gcc: error: @my_libs@: No such file or directory

Thank you ftrvxmtrx. alock source package contains up-to-date man page by default, but when asciidoc support is detected, it tries to create a new one. I decided instead to create a patch to disable useless man page recreation.

Please add xmlto to makedepends.

xmlto man alock.xml
make: xmlto: Command not found
make: *** [alock.1] Error 127
make: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....

Hi dumblob, you are right with removing "libxxf86misc" dependency, thank you.
There is no different in source codes between alock-svn-94.tar.bz2 and actual version in mercurial repository - only TODO file seems to be different, so I will stick with the current tar archive.
