Hi @k0ste, just a little note, but maybe I'm wrong.

Switched to libyang minimum version 2.1.80!

The required minimum version for libyang is raised to 2.1.80. That means your package in the AUR repo should have: depends = libyang=2.1.80

Now I think it's wrong now because you allow even lower versions than 2.1.80: depends = libyang<=2.1.80

Message from David Lamparter:

Hi all,

we have discovered a rather insidious cross-package compatibility issue
between libyang 2.1.111 (released August 18th, 1 week ago) and all
existing FRR versions using libyang2.  Discussion has been happening on with relevant commit
(in case you are applying individual commits e.g. for a stable package)

Using libyang 2.1.111 with FRR will result in silent configuration
corruption - some FRR configuration statements will simply disappear.
Note that one of the statements affected is in route filtering and may
constitute security-critical configuration the user has made.  If you
are only superficially familiar with FRR operation, this is analog to
firewall rules disappearing.

The change in libyang was made to align better with the YANG RFC and is
not planned to be revisited, future FRR versions (9.1 and later) are
expected to be adjusted for the change in behavior.

Therefore, I would strongly advise all of you in your roles as package
maintainers to add a blocker to packages of libyang 2.1.111 or later, in
whatever way your package management system allows expressing:
 "not: frr < 9.1"

Please also note that stable releases may need to retain an installation
option for an older version of libyang (e.g. 2.1.80) if FRR is to remain
installable, as otherwise the package manager won't be able to find a
valid solution due to the blocker.

Alpine Linux and Arch Linux are already shipping 2.1.111 and thus
hardest hit by this issue.

I would like to apologize for the overhead and breakage caused by this,
particularly to Arch and Alpine maintainers.

-David / equi

I and everyone else who uses Frr thank you @k0ste.

Thanks @vecino, updated!

FRR 9 needs the protobuf-c package and cannot be run without it. It needs to be added to "depends".

We need to repack to 9.0-3 :) 29a2a234175b89f69794e5276aa628acdbedb589c25cb3dc2c4bc53c4b7c062e frr-9.0.tar.gz

Excelent many thanks!

Everything works only when building it shows this. Is it ok?

i try to create frr via yay and end up here:

61/63 Test #61: yanglint_in_list ..................   Passed    0.01 sec
      Start 62: yanglint_in_feature
62/63 Test #62: yanglint_in_feature ...............   Passed    0.01 sec
      Start 63: yanglint_in_completion
63/63 Test #63: yanglint_in_completion ............***Failed    1.01 sec

98% tests passed, 1 tests failed out of 63

Total Test time (real) =   3.80 sec

The following tests FAILED:
     63 - yanglint_in_completion (Failed)
Errors while running CTest
Output from these tests are in: /home/vecino/.cache/yay/libyang/src/libyang-2.1.4/build/Testing/Temporary/LastTest.log
Use "--rerun-failed --output-on-failure" to re-run the failed cases verbosely.
make: *** [Makefile:71: test] Error 8
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in check().
 -> error making: libyang

Please any tips?

Hi, 'armv7h' was added

eugeneai commented on 2022-07-29 03:15 (UTC)

Hi! Add 'armv7h' to the architecture list. It compiles well on Orange Pi One ans functioning too.
