No longer builds for me after the upgrade to openssl 1.1.0.e-1; this patch works for me with the openssl-1.0 package:

Please update the PKGBUILD "provides" assignment to include "bacula-common=${pkgver}"

I encountered problems installing this package and bacula-bat on the same machine (i.e. a backup client capable of controlling a remote director). There were 'file already exists' conflicts for whichever package I tried to install second. The conflicting files were limited to those found in bacula-common.

Thank you for your time and effort maintaining this package.

I cannot get this package to work as a daemon. When I try to restart with sudo systemctl restart bacula-fd or bacula-fd.service I receive the following error:

Failed to issue method call: Unit var-run.mount failed to load: No such file or directory.

I checked the journalctl and it produces no noticeable errors, only the command output.

Please add

* "armv6h" to arch list,
*--with-systemd \
--with-fd-user=root \
--with-fd-group=root \
to configure section

* install -D -m 0644 ${srcdir}/${_basename}-${pkgver}/platforms/systemd/bacula-fd.service ${pkgdir}/usr/lib/systemd/system/bacula-fd.service
in package() section

Is it safe now to remove bacula-fd.service source file, it is included in bacula sources.

Hi all,

I haven't used Arch for some months now (I switched to Debian), so I totally forgot about this pkg. Sorry about that. And since I no longer have Arch I can't build and test it, so I'm disowning it.

If anybody wants to maintain it and needs help about how to do it, feel free to email me. It's really easy and takes no time.

Please add a systemd service :
