Hi Frank,

My apologies for the delay. It works fine now.

Thanks rajanandakumar for letting me know about this. I was able to reproduce it, even though nothing in the package has changed in quite a while -- so I assume this must have been some external change which triggered this issue.

Anyway, I have just pushed a new PKGBUILD which should take care of using the Arch-compatible directories instead of the two defaults (/usr/bin and /usr/lib instead of /sbin and /usr/lib64).

Can you let me know whether that works for you now?

Trying to install it, I get

error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
cvmfs: /sbin exists in filesystem
cvmfs: /usr/lib64 exists in filesystem
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.

Any suggestions on how to go about fixing this? I did have a look at the various messages regarding this, dating back to 2013, but there seems to be none relevant here. Most seem to suggest that it needs to be fixed at the package level.

Thanks and Cheers,

Hi Sebastien,

Are you still working on the package or would you like to orphan it?
I have an updated version for the current cvmfs release, which also takes care of some of the configuration steps automatically:

But I don't think I am allowed to upload it to AUR as long as you are the Maintainer.
