Seems to dump stuff in /usr/var/{run,spool}/firehol ... ?

I added '-localstatedir=/var' to configure to fix mine ...

Ataraxy I fail to see your point. There was a ping6 problem like years ago, but it has been fixed.

@SanskritFritz any update on "ping" vs "ping6"? Any workaround?

I can confirm that iputils doesn't include ping6:
https://www.archlinux.org/packages/core/x86_64/iputils/

Here is a related issue with ping6 being removed:

I just removed my cached git clone of firehol and I still get the same message.

$ which ping
/usr/bin/ping
$ ls -l /usr/bin/ping
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 61,168 Feb 11 2017 /usr/bin/ping
$ pacman -Qlq iputils | grep '/ping$'
/usr/bin/ping

You seem to be `checking for ping`, while @JohnRobson and I are `checking for ping6`.
Are you sure you're using the `configure.am` from https://github.com/firehol/firehol/releases/download/v3.1.5/firehol-3.1.5.tar.xz?

This is what I have:
checking for ping... /usr/bin/ping
checking whether PING has working -6 option... yes

Maybe you have a ping6 symlink somewhere? It was a temp solution to this problem some time ago.

When:
==> Making package: firehol 2:3.1.4-1 (Thu Sep 7 11:18:16 +07 2017)

I also get:

checking for ping6... no
configure: error: cannot find required executable, bailing out
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

Perhaps: ping -h |& grep 'ping -6' && echo Supports IPv6

SanskritFritz commented on 2017-09-02 14:20

That is a very old problem, what version are you building?

JohnRobson commented on 2017-09-02 03:31

checking for ping6... no
configure: error: cannot find required executable, bailing out
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
Aborting...
==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build firehol.

ping can handle ipv6 now

I don't know how to help you, sorry, it works here.

stenaus commented on 2017-01-12 10:22

Yes. It's there, but still does not work.
For me, the easiest and quickest solution was to replace in firehol binary:
sed -i 's|$PROGRAM_DIR/$functions_file|/usr/lib/firehol/3.1.0/$functions_file|' /usr/bin/firehol

I hope it get fixed for next update.
