Thanks for letting me know. I removed the patch. If someone could confirm that libgcrypt issue is fixed that would be nice. I don't think it applies to my setup, but I just did my backup and it worked fine.

I added the patch to the PKGBUILD. Thanks. To be removed when 2.7.15 is out.

Can we do anything about it?

Cherrypick and apply this patch:

Add "dar-libgcrypt-fix.patch::" to source=() and

prepare() {
  cd "${pkgname}-${pkgver}"
  patch -Np1 -i ../dar-libgcrypt-fix.patch

The latest update of core/libgcrypt to 1.11.0 breaks dar as memory guard support in libgcrypt was deprecated ( making dar produce: FATAL error, aborting operation: Error while activating libgcrypt's memory guard: gcrypt/Not supported.

Upstream issue:

Will be fixed in version 2.7.15

Why not enable threadar ? It is no more experimental with 2.7.
