If the build fails, that's normally due to a new version available as an rpm, so I just have to update the version and the checksums. This of course is only noticed if someone (re-)builds the package.

There's no need for you to post modified PKGBUILDs. Just flag the package out-of-date or drop me an e-mail and I'll take care of it.

@knowak, I cannot confirm your problem, the client is still working for me.

Does anyone have a problem with "Could not authenticate to server: rejected Basic challenge" during syncing? At some point this client stopped working for me - it worked several months ago on a different arch installation (I am still authorized to use cernbox from the browser)

I have included the working qtkeychain version from the cernbox repo into this package now. It's used by a wrapper script to not interfere with other versions and cause conflicts.

Hope this works for you.

I too have the libqtchain problem. It would be wonderful if this could be fixed.

Thanks and Cheers,

I used "downgrade" on qtkeychain-qt4, to reinstall qtkeychain-qt4-0.5-2-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz (remote).
change the dependencies in the cernbox PKGBUILD to qtkeychain-qt4.

works fine.

Right, qtkeychain does no longer contain the qt4 version...

There is an AUR package 'qtkeychain-qt4' (version 0.6.1), but unfortunately this does not work because this cernbox build is linked against an older version.
I know that it worked with version 0.5. The cernbox repository I'm extracting this from contains a verision 0.4 rpm[1], which also works.

I'm not sure what is best to do now. I don't know under which circumstances the repositories provided by CERN IT are updated, but I can ask if they can trigger this. I could include qtkeychain into this package, but that might cause conflicts for some people.

If you need a solution for now, manually using the libs from [1] works.

I got a strange error with libqtkeychain.

I have removed cernbox and qtkeychain, and reinstalled both, now cernbox cannot load libqtkeychain:

cernbox: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

is there any obvious solution ?
