@symen Thanks for that tip! I didn't know about that work-around. I have updated accordingly. As before, feel free to email me with any issues.

I noticed you set the source url to a file you host yourself. I know the original host returns 403 errors when using curl, but it seems to work fine when modifying the user agent.
In practice this can be done by overriding the DLAGENTS variable to add the "-A Mozilla" parameter:
'https::/usr/bin/curl -fLC - --retry 3 --retry-delay 3 -A Mozilla -o %o %u'
This is an ugly but valid solution according to the wiki, and it is sometimes used in official packages:

Wouldn't it be better then to use this hack instead of a custom host?
Thanks for maintaining the package by the way, I often use freefilesync so I much prefer a native package than the docker container hack I resorted to use. :)

@alexmo82 Thanks for letting me help! ^_^

Just updated to 9.4. My apologies for the slight delay. I've been bedridden with flu for the past few days and haven't been online.

This was my first time submitting a PKGBUILD, as well as my first time using both git and ssh, so please don't hesitate to email me if there are any problems.

@staticghost, you're right. I'm very sorry about that: I don't have so much free time at the moment.
Thanks to everyone for understanding, thanks to staticghost for his help.

PKGBUILD for FreeFileSync 9.4:

I don't mean to sound ungrateful to alexmo82 for making an AUR entry for this great software but, honestly, this is the worst maintained AUR package I use. Is there anything that can be done about that? I'd happily take over maintainance...

The solution for boost is to rebuild.

fuan_k commented on 2017-10-01 15:36

Doesn't work since boost-libs upgraded to version 1.65.1 => not found => not found => not found

Also FreeFileSync 9.3 is out now. Update please? :3

Edit: weirdly enough, using the older 1.64 version segaults, but doesn't crash the program...
LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/;/usr/lib/;/usr/lib/ ; FreeFileSync

Update v.9.3, please.
Tarda horas y horas en un pc moderno en instalarse.

@staticghost Not a problem. ^^

@Nori13 Woops! My bad. Thank you for correcting it!
