Updated to 2.3.28: the Arch support has been moved upstream in Gentoo portage and the package is now much leaner.

@Trilby fair point, this has been corrected

Note that the AUR is not for hosting code. The source code should be placed elsewhere.

Please move the script to github or a filesharing site.

@Ataraxy: I've updated the URL, thanks! Not sure what you mean about the 404 error, it works fine for me:

$ git clone

git clone URL is 404.

PKGBUILD url= should be

Didn't see this anywhere, so thought I'd mention it: you need to have the EDITOR variable set to make this work.

@Trigger: Done, now it will search /usr/share/config also.

Thanks for this package. Comming from gentoo it makes updates really comfortable.
Could you make it find /usr/share/config/kdm/kdmrc.pacnew, too?

Malvineous commented on 2013-09-07 23:05

Updated to find *.pacnew under /usr/lib also

@luolimao: Done, thanks.
