Running ddru_findbad also requires the ntfscluster, ifind and gfdisk binaries. The ntfs-3g package provides ntfscluster while sleuthkit provides ifind. There doesn't seem to be a gfdisk packaged anywhere though?

This does not build for me, even when I download the package manually and compile it with make. I tried it on a virtual machine with an old version of linux mint and it compiled...

The build process has changed in this latest release, v2.8; namely Autotools is no longer used, so there is no <pre>./configure</pre> script to run and no aclocal folder to remove at the end of the <pre>package()</pre> function. We can resort to manually modifying the makefile to remove the local folder (as in change <pre>/usr/local</pre> paths to <pre>/usr</pre>): <code> prepare() { cd "$pkgname-$pkgver" sed --in-place 's/usr\/local/usr/g' makefile } build() { cd "$pkgname-$pkgver" make } package() { cd "$pkgname-$pkgver" make DESTDIR="$pkgdir/" install } </code> I've also removed references to $srcdir as each PKGBUILD function begins with $srcdir as its working directory.

Looks like this has been updated to 2.6 so the download fails for 2.5 ==> ERROR: Failure while downloading ddrutility-2.5.tar.gz Aborting...

Voted, nice addition. No pkg 'sh' exists, and AUR assumes base stuff implicitly, so 'sh' can drop. While I'm not familiar with this utility, wouldn't 'extra/ddrescue' be a dependency, or at least an optdepends? Thanks.
