@tz.mates thank you, fixed!

It looks like package configurations are now stored in /etc/default/earlyoom. Perhaps this should be added to the backup array?

@andrewchen: The service file at /usr/lib/systemd/system/earlyoom.service is not meant to be edited by the user (as well as any other service file in that directory). ;)

Please see this section of the arch wiki: , which has a specific example on how to overwrite an ExecStart line.

Essentially, it's this:

sudo systemctl edit earlyoom.service

ExecStart=/usr/bin/earlyoom <your custom options here>

Have fun! :)

I think the systemd service file should be put in the backup array in the pkgbuild, so that it would be easier for users to add their own options to run earlyoom with.

Thanks, fixed now! xD

The name of the executable is misspelled in line 24 of the PKGBUILD file: "${pkgdir}/usr/bin/earyloom"

Should work now!
