Fails to clone source for me:

Cloning into bare repository '/[...]/bios_extract-git/bios_extract'...
fatal: unable to update url base from redirection:

source=("git+") does work for me.

Thanks for maintaining!

fstirlitz, do you want to take over this package and make the improvements? As of source changes - they should go upstream instead of patching this package. Thus all distros will take advantage of the fixes.

Nice to see this packaged. Just a few remarks, though: 0) You could apply two patches to ami.c. First, apply __attribute__((packed)) to struct abc (i.e. "} __attribute__((packed)) *abc;") — this fixes an offset miscalculation which may lead to a crash (SIGBUS). Second, compute BootOffset by ANDing with 0xFFFFE000 instead of 0xFFFF0000, which fits the images I tested it on more (the boot block starts at the 32-bit checksum and signature); without applying it, I get overlapping parts, which makes little sense. I guess it should be reported upstream, but I'm not quite sure where that is. 1) Apart from binaries you already install, you could also install xfv/, and And maybe even,, and You will need to fix #! lines to reference python2 of course, and probably use -m755.
