I have made PKGBUILD for the nichivo fork. It is quick and little dirty, but it works enough.

There is a new fork that made a couple of improvements over the last year. Haven't had time to try it yet but it would be nice to get cope on smartctl and systemctl :)

I have the same problem/solution as @vikstrous.

There's a missing dependency on perl-module-install. After installing that package I was able to install cope-git

Please add the following variables, so other packages can depend on 'cope':

Sorry for the late responses...

Looks related to [1], [2], and [3]. Quoting from [3]:

"The update to glibc-2.18 removes pt_chown which is a security risk. It is not needed on an Arch system given we have /dev/pts.

However, some people appear to have /dev/pts in their /etc/fstab file, which generates it with the wrong permissions. This will result in errors like "grantpt failed: Operation not permitted".

To fix this, remove that line from your fstab file. systemd will take care of generating /dev/pts with the right permissions."


It is a fork (mine), but upstream is dead (i.e., non-existent - the Upstream URL above has been dead since before 2011 ([4] is the most recent copy I could find), and the original GitHub repo [5] doesn't exist, either). According to [6], there has been little actual development in the other forks (mainly fixing issues with perl versions). If there's a different fork that you prefer, which one is it? I'll consider switching, or merging it into mine.

It also clones from GitHub (using the git:// protocol in the source array).

Assuming this is why it's marked out-of-date, I'm unflagging it.

It clones from a fork and also doesn't git clone from Github.

I get this before every cope command:

IO::Tty::pty_allocate(nonfatal): grantpt(): Operation not permitted at /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/IO/ line 24.

Any ideas how to fix? It is rather annoying. Thanks!!

I pushed a fix to GitHub.

(I get the error too, but I normally run ps through grep, so I never saw it... thanks for reporting it!)

I don't think it was an API change, but I don't have another version of perl to test on right now... It was an issue with the /p regexp modifier not being applied for some reason when using a compiled regular expression... The fix I applied doesn't need that functionality, although it might be slightly slower.

Also, @adam900710, you put "nocope" in front of any commands to run the original:
nocope make menuconfig

I'm seeing errors with the ps command.

$ ps
Use of uninitialized value in numeric eq (==) at /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl/auto/share/dist/Cope/ps line 82.

$ ps u
Use of uninitialized value $uid in string eq at /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl/App/Cope/ line 105.

Are they due to API changes in perl 5.18?
