I used this trick when compiling on Aarch64 where building fails because "cannot guess build type":

I am bumping into this issue:

I tried modifying both main.cpp and Compress.cpp but it still failed to build, so I tried a different approach, which I have defined in a prepare() function that should go between pkgver() and build() in the PKGBUILD file, which I've included below:


prepare() {
cd "$srcdir/$pkgname/src"
sed -i '25{a \
;p}' assert.h


I'm also seeing some build warnings that should probably be addressed and strike me as things that need to be pushed upstream, but the project hasn't seen any new development for about a year:

Works fine now, thank you!

Doesn't work with lzo 2.10-1 from testing. Could you make it dependent on lzo?

this package is not out of date, but surely in a bad shape.
i fixed building/packaging separation, but it doesnt build for me (compile error).
since i do not use it anymore, i release it into the wild…

But info from
git clone git://
cd fusecompress

info from

make && sudo make install

working. Than

sudo nano /etc/profile
write end of line

than only for to first reboot.

export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/bin


fusecom[TAB] .... (read man fusecompress)

It is working. ;-)
