Changes to the package:

  • Git verifies the signed tag now, you will have to import the freenet developers key from ** or gpg --recv-keys FD6C57F9
  • Includes the Library plugin
  • /opt/freenet folder permissions updated, youll likely see warnings about it when updating. Systemd will change them on its own. Install the package twice and you shouldnt see the warnings again if it changed them correctly.
  • freenet.ini.pacnew can be ignored unless you want a fresh install, only updated for new installations ** New installs will have opennet disabled until you manually enable it
  • wrapper.config.pacnew should be updated if youve made local changes to yours
  • freenet doesnt overwrite our newest geoip db anymore

no reason other than didn't need to at the time, ive updated the pkgbuild to checkout each version tag now

@skydrome I confirm that it works.
Is there a reason to keep to two incompatible versions configured in the PKGBUILD?
(fred 1470 and KeyUtils master)

skydrome commented on 2016-02-04 06:49

you just have to uncomment _fred=#branch=next

@skydrome You mean compiling the PKGBUILD without any modification works?

Oh, and seems to it needs latest version of bc because with current one I've got " no such algorithm: SHA256withECDDSA for provider BC"

There is updated PKGBUILD:

It fails on KeyUtils plugin building. I've fixed that by switching to fred master (just removed ${_fred} from fred source url).

Compiling the latest is working fine for me right now, you can build a pre-release tag from one named here
Official release shouldnt be too far away

tuxayo commented on 2016-01-07 22:35

I get an error when compiling Plugin KeyUtils:

Anybody else?
