To check just the groups that your present user is in group "optical" just use >groups<.

Looks like this is available again. I must have just been unlucky in my timing...

It seems like this webserver is down. I can ping, but any attempt to access the web server to download the perl script times out. A brief search for alternative download locations proved unsucessful, as they all ultimately point back to this site...

I have taken over the package maintenance and changed the checksum acording to earlier comments.

If some likes, he/she can takeover the package. I do not use it anymore. Will disown it now.

the script is still maintained and has been updated 2015-02-25 by the developer Reiner Krienke. Only the AUR Package is outdated. Please download manually at

If I find the time, I will try to package an updated version, though I have nerver done that and will have to do some reading first. =)

As per @mrdomino please switch to sha256sum vs md5sum, also package is out of date.


mrdomino commented on 2014-09-23 02:59

Could we please have a SHA-256 sum for this? MD5 is known to be broken for code signing [0].

Kind of important given that many sites recommend using geteltorito for BIOS updates [1] [2].
