need rebuild

PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/lib/openssl-1.0/pkgconfig \
CFLAGS+=" -I/usr/include/openssl-1.0" \
LDFLAGS+=" -L/usr/lib/openssl-1.0 -lssl"  \

Looks like there's some upstream breakages with SSL also -- I don't know enough C to be able to patch it. If someone wants to provide a patch, or take over ownership, let me know.

Needs to be built using:

CFLAGS+=" -I/usr/include/openssl-1.0"
LDFLAGS+=" -L/usr/lib/openssl-1.0"

Also: "configure: WARNING: unrecognized options: --with-manowner, --with-mangrp, --with-manmode, --with-bingrp, --disable-transselinux"

Doh! I knew I was missing something obvious. I was comparing it to the autoreconf.patch but that file is in the root so it didn't need the -p0. Thanks :)

Patch added to pkgrel -4

pbor commented on 2015-01-19 10:52


you need to use the following line to apply that patch:

patch -p0 < "$srcdir"/restore-rmdir.patch"

Without '-p0' option, patch looks for restore.c file in current directory. By providing -p0 option, you tell patch to use full path to restore.c (restore/restore.c).

fukawi2 commented on 2015-01-19 00:06

Given that this could lead to data loss, I'm inclined to apply the patch, however I appear to be doing something stupid and the patch will not apply?

I've added this command to the PKGBUILD: patch < "$srcdir"/restore-rmdir.patch

A bug in restore in version 0.43 and 0.44 prevents recovery of incremental backups when a directory is deleted. A patch is given by a user in the notes on the bug report:

Debian is using that fix, can't find any other distro patching it though.

fukawi2 commented on 2014-09-02 09:27

Thanks, PKGBUILD updated.

Build dep pkgconfig is replaced by pkg-config.

fukawi2 commented on 2014-08-02 02:01

Done and done. Also added some missing build deps.

ghen commented on 2014-08-01 11:32

Or if it's really still useful (and incompatible with tar's rmt), turn it into a split package? I doubt it's worth the trouble though.

ghen commented on 2014-08-01 11:31

Not sure how compatible both rmt implementations are (BSD vs. GNU), however I doubt many people are still using it anyway...

The simplest solution is probably to just rebuild dump without it, simply add --disable-rmt.

fukawi2 commented on 2014-08-01 00:19

Well bollocks. I'm open to suggestions?

ghen commented on 2014-07-31 07:02

This pkg now conflicts with tar from core repo (since tar 1.28-1) due to /usr/share/man/man8/rmt.8.gz

fukawi2 commented on 2014-07-22 23:47

Done, thanks :)

pbor commented on 2014-07-21 11:59

Could you please add 'autoconf' to makedepends()?

fukawi2 commented on 2013-12-02 01:06

Thanks joely - that works. Updated to 0.4b44

joely commented on 2013-11-30 19:50

do autoreconf, not autoconf

fukawi2 commented on 2013-09-20 23:41

I'm unable to get 0.4b44 to build. We need this patch:

But then we get this error:
cd . && autoconf error: possibly undefined macro: AC_DEFINE
If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow.
See the Autoconf documentation.
make: *** [configure] Error 1

Any help would be great.

There is new version in download area

fukawi2 commented on 2013-06-04 00:32

-3 moves sbin/ to bin/

Anonymous comment on 2010-10-29 22:50

Arg, now I can't reproduce the problem. Not sure what state all I've changed. I did do a pacman -S gcc, but thought the problem exhibited afterwards.

Anonymous comment on 2010-10-29 22:33

I had to add the line 'autoconf' before the .configure in PKGBUILD to prevent "gcc: '-V' option must have argument" during the build ( My gcc is version 4.5.1. Hope this is helpful. Thanks!

fukawi2 commented on 2010-09-06 10:48

Bump to 0.4b43
