Updated upstream URL to reflect AD website design changes.

If someone wants to build in a 32-bit architecture and provide accurate 32-bit MD5 for the package please post it here.

jskier commented on 2012-10-03 18:26

Will update soon this week to include new revision with both architectures.

Going to disown since I no longer have a job function that requires my use or maintenance of this package.

jskier commented on 2012-10-03 16:56

Yay, AD took my request from a year ago and made a 64-bit binary with the new version. Please update or disown if you want me to take over ;-)

Please merge the functionality of bin32 vaersion of this package,
bin32 packages are ugly and keeping these separate makes things
just harder for the user and the maintainers, who need to keep
the packages equal in functionality.

bin32-ftkimager: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=46838

After you have done that send a message to aur-general mailinglist
and ask for a merge of these 2 packages.

most 32bit binary only applications don't have bin32 package...

Here's a bin32-ftkimager. Hope it helps.

"Actually, I think that the correct way to handle 64bit would be a bin32-ftkimager package since this is a 32bit binary and nothing is going to change that."

Agreed

Simply changing that isn't sufficient. Because its a 32bit binary, it needs a different dependency from a different repository to function at all.

On top of that, the PKGBUILD currently creates an extra openssl symlink, which it shouldn't because in the end, the openssl package should manage its own symlinks.

The PKGBUILD is currently broken in that regard because it does something that it shouldn't have a right to do. I didn't feel like updating it to work for 64bit because that would just continue the brokenness. If I update the PKGBUILD for 64bit, I'll make the dependencies correct, but I don't think that the package should be making the symlink if the first place, so I won't go through the trouble of doing nasty things. I'd leave it as a note in the .install file.

The other option is to use the Debian version of ftkimager, but that requires openssl 0.9.8, which is another AUR package.

All that being said, I'm welcome to any suggestions you might have as to how to make this package work properly without being dirty.

"To get this to work on x86_64, you'll need to multilib/lib32-openssl, then add a symlink so that the library name that ftk expects can be found:

ln -s /usr/lib32/libcrypto.so.1.0.0 /usr/lib32/libcrypto.so.10 "

^^^This is why we have PKGBUILDS with an architecture variable.

FTK Imager 2.9.0 is the latest version for linux command line and is NOT out of date. 3.0 is Windows only.

To get this to work on x86_64, you'll need to multilib/lib32-openssl, then add a symlink so that the library name that ftk expects can be found:

ln -s /usr/lib32/libcrypto.so.1.0.0 /usr/lib32/libcrypto.so.10
