@DHxchange this is fixed. I have uploaded a libwrap package to AUR.

DHxchange commented on 2023-04-27 04:27 (UTC)

This package no longer builds due to the missing libwrap dependency.

I couldn't make that change because that's already the dfault value in acng.conf.

I don't know how you end up having the log in /var/tmp. I have them in /var/log/apt-cacher-ng without changing anything...

I noticed that logs are currently going to /var/tmp even though the /var/log/apt-cacher-ng/ directory gets created, a simple:

sudo sed -i 's!LogDir.*!LogDir: /var/log/apt-cacher-ng!g' /etc/apt-cacher-ng/acng.conf

after installation fixes this issue, but would be good to get it done by the PKBUILD

No one is currently maintaining the package, would anyone like to step in?

I haven't done anything related to AUR pkgs before, don't mind learning, however, I don't want to ruin this for everyone, including myself :D

hi, i am facing a probleme with aptCng: it does'nt accepte changing default path for CacheDir.

i did everything too find a solution like:

- # chown -R /NEWPATH/TO/MyCACH = NOK
- # usermod -a -G MYGROUP Apt-Cacher-NG = NOK

the error is same in journalctl:

... apt-cacher-ng[3081]: Error: Cannot create any directory in ...
... systemd[1]: apt-cacher-ng.service: Main process exited, code=exited, status=1/FAILURE

So what's wrong

As I'm no longer using apt-cacher in my environment I'll disown it so somebody who actually uses it can take it over.

Pacman 6.0 "broke" apt-cacher-ng (the default config doesn't let .sig files through and replies with HTTP error 403). Please add the "upstream" patch from the debian bug report (made by yours truly 0:)). The patches in the bug report are made against 3.3.1 and 3.7.2, but the latter patch (the one that ends in -upstream.patch) should apply by replacing "[ab]/src" with "[ab]/source" at the top.

For those looking for a workaround, add:

PFilePatternEx: .*\.pkg\.tar\.(gz|bz2|lzma|xz|zst)\.sig$

VFilePatternEx: .*\.(db|files|abs)(\.tar\.(gz|bz2|lzma|xz|zst))?\.sig$

to /etc/apt-cacher-ng/acng.conf or in a drop-in (if for some reason you have already set any of these options, add "|" and the text after the colon for the corresponding option at the end of your current config)

Hi, I have some points/comments :-)

  • version 3.6 is release and update would be nice :-)

  • To "respect" the documentation

# [...] should not be
# set without good reason, because they would override the built-in defaults
# (that might impact updates to future versions of apt-cacher-ng).

I would remove the "PfilePattern = ..." from the config file. If (I don't believe it) zst is still missing, it could be add via PfilePatternEx: (\.zst)$

In the changelog ( zst is added in 3.3.1-1.
