oops... I just applied it like this without an error:

mkdir /tmp/a;tar xzf dieharder.tgz -C /tmp/a

cd /tmp/a/dieharder-3.31.1

unxz < /tmp/dieharder-3.31.1.patch.xz | patch -p1

how did u do it?

maybe u need to run ./configure?

Your patch seems to fail to apply

i made a patch for my x86_64 box, that u can find there: http://www0.wgboome.org/dieharder-3.31.1.patch.xz

but i dont know (yet) how to fix that PKGBUILD file. but it seems to run fine (at least tests 000 to 016).

Okay, this build system seems to be broken on a modern system. Loads of linker errors about multiply defined symbols. At first I thought it was due to the missing include guards in the header files. But the real problem seems to go much deeper.

Right now I cannot justify to spend more time on it. Hence, I will disown the package for now. I have only used this thing years ago to test a hardware RNG that built as a tinkering project and found it really useful. So I think this is a real shame but also there seems to be no upstream development.

I uploaded an update where I at least fixed the upstream URL.

The download has moved: http://webhome.phy.duke.edu/~rgb/General/dieharder/${pkgname}-${pkgver}.tgz

They use some self-signed certificate for HTTPS which curl fails to verify. But downloading via HTTP is fine with the corrected URL.

I will now have a look into this build issue you mentioned.

I overcame the curl certificate problem but I confirm Fifis's problem with the compilation.

Fifis commented on 2020-08-28 16:29

make: *** [Makefile:953: libwulf.time] Error 2 ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build(). Aborting...

A typical error looks like this: /usr/bin/ld: .libs/libdieharder_la-dab_bytedistrib.o:(.bss+0x28): multiple definition ofV'; .libs/libdieharder_la-bits.o:(.bss+0x28): first defined here`

Finally, curl: (60) SSL certificate problem: unable to get local issuer certificate. The Sources section is listing the http, and so is the PKGBUILD. We need HTTPS for that. https://webhome.phy.duke.edu/~rgb/General/dieharder/dieharder-3.31.1.tgz

It looks like it's not compiling anymore :<
