You should be able to remove CONFIG_WERROR=false for make test for version 11.

The flags for the library weren't meant to be inherited by the tests. Having environment variables exported for CFLAGS, etc. was causing them to get applied for the test Makefile too. That's now resolved.

hardened_malloc 10 was just released. A new light build variant is included, which should be packaged by this project as well. See

I sent a pull request to fix the test suite build issue and it's been merged: I'll backport the patch and release a new version of the package.

In the PKGBUILD, inside the "check" function add the line:


before the make command.

I have no experience with C. What do I need to do to properly set the CPPFLAGS to make the compilation succeed? Thanks!

Thanks @thithib, setting CPPFLAGS allowed the check to succeed.

thithib commented on 2021-06-03 15:10 (UTC)

So I just hit the same problem as both of you after updating my makepkg configuration file and it turns out the compilation error happens when CPPFLAGS is not set, which I guess is somehow not OK for hardened_malloc's Makefile.

Hi! I have exactly the same problem as @dreieck. I tried clearing the Yay cache to force a download of the sources, and the problem persists. @thithib, would you mind having a look? Thanks a lot for maintaining this package!

@dreieck That's weird, I just checked again and it works fine for me.

Thanks @egrupled, I'll do that ;)

Hi @thithib thx for packaging this. I have small feature request - could you use git tag instead of tarball and check gpg signature on it? Like below:
