Actually now that I look closer, that won't work because dependencies of checkra1n already load, so also loading could (silently) break them. However since the only ABI breaking change in is in plist_from_memory which isn't used by checkra1n (see objdump -T path/to/checkra1n | grep plist), it should be safe to only use While a symlink from would accomplish this, it could cause silent breakage elsewhere, so a better solution is to replace the DT_NEEDED entry in the checkra1n executable using patchelf. This and the libirecovery-1.0-3 change are incorporated in the following diff:

This needs to depend on libplist-2.0-3, and the dependency on libirecovery needs to be changed to libirecovery-1.0-3 due to soname bump in libirecovery 1.2.0

@VACBannedJK could you give a more in-depth error? I can't reproduce; it builds fine for me.

VACBannedJK commented on 2022-07-19 05:41 (UTC)

it gives me ­"failed to build ncurses5-compat-libs" when trying to install checkra1n, installing ncurses5-compat-libs by itself from the AUR first seems to fix the issue

OK, great! I will test it out whenever I get a chance.

bbaovanc commented on 2021-09-24 02:15 (UTC)

@Newo it's fixed

bbaovanc commented on 2021-09-24 01:35 (UTC)

darn it

Newo commented on 2021-09-24 01:18 (UTC)

Hmm... the file does appear to be in my /usr/share/applications though doesn't appear in my XFCE menu. When I try to excecute it, it says that the command checkra1n isn't found. It seems like the command is supposed to be checkra1n-gui?

@Newo it's adding the .desktop file for me, can you check pacman -Ql checkra1n-gui?

Newo commented on 2021-08-30 21:07 (UTC)

It seems like the .desktop file isn't getting added.
