Feared as much with the package not being updated :) Alright thanks, just pushed the fix. Not sure I'll be maintaining the package much more though.

Thank you for your backport.
But sorry I don't use ArchLinux any more, being unable to test your patch.
I added you to the co-maintainer list, so you should be able to modify the PKGBUILD.
If you have any problems, please let me know.

Package doesn't build since openssl udpate to 1.1.

I backported the openssl-1.1-patch from the main repo (

Once that patch is applied it builds fine and #214 (which happens after ~5min for me with normal encfs) doesn't seem to be affected.

Would be nice if you could review + add it to the repo

Sorry, it was my fault. I've rebuilt encfs18 with latest boost-libs already installed and it's running okay now.

Okay, I've tested in VM. Haven't encountered that lib issue, so it's definitely has something to do with my main Arch installation. Gonna investigate further.

My boost-libs is also 1.61.0-2, but I can not reproduce your error.

I'm sorry to hear that.
Have you considered to set up a VM to do the experiment, and then report the problem to the upstream?

sdjd commented on 2016-10-12 21:14

No, I meant boost-libs 1.61.0-2 in [extra]. I'm not sure I should notify anyone, when encfs-1.9-2 starts okay(#214 issue aside) with current boost-libs in [extra].

But when I try running encfs18 with boost-libs 1.61.0-2 I get lib errors. Sorry, but right now I can't provide you with log since I don't want to mess with my encrypted $HOME.

Do you mean boost-libs-1.62.0 ?
Sorry I do not use the [staging] repo, and I have no idea about the compatibility problem.

Is there any backport patches? Is the upstream notified about the compatibility break?

sdjd commented on 2016-10-09 16:14

Thanks for tackling the issue, but this package has the same problem as encfs pre 1.9-2 - not working with new boost-libs package. And no upgrading boost-libs causes problems with other packages. Is it possible to make it compatible?

I hope issue #214 will be resolved quickly.
