Here's the PKGBUILD I made following cg505's instructions:

It works on my system ;)

For those upgrading to 3.30.0: it is not sufficient to just bump pkgver. You will get filesystem conflicts in pacman for /lib/udev/rules.d/61-gdm.rules. This file should be in /usr/lib/... instead. For this you need this commit, which is on master but not on a release yet. The extra/gdm build includes this commit.

cg505 commented on 2018-06-23 13:25 is GONE! They have moved everything over to GitLab. Please update the tarball to (they also have .tar.bz2 but no .tar.xz). It seems to work after updating the source URL and checksum.

hi! changed the gdm source to this url, it's downloaded but could not finish the installation. It seems to be checksum problem:

Hi, to install this I needed to change gdm source url to :

babel commented on 2018-05-25 02:18

I get this error trying to install: url: (22) The requested URL returned error: 401 Unauthorized. Maybe the url just changed...

I updated this to 3.28.1 which appears to be just a simple version bump. if anyone wants to use it or merge it.

nullptr_t commented on 2018-03-25 16:18

The compiler flags where updated.

Taijian commented on 2018-03-25 11:30

Also, the gdm package in [extra] has changed some of the build flags in the update to 3.28.0. Maybe you want to mirror those changes in this package as well?

cg505 commented on 2018-03-25 04:19

To update to 3.28.0, it appears sufficient to just update the pkgver and checksum. I changed PKGBUILD like so:


and everything seems to be working alright.

@nullptr_t you should probably consider this a critical update, since gnome 3.28 is now in extra, and an unsuspecting user is likely to (as I did) just run pacman -Syu and they will end up with a system that does not start gdm on boot.
