@cradcore thanks for letting me know! I updated the package accordingly.

@techge Please update the PKGBUILD, as there is no longer a docs submodule, it has been moved to a different repository. So lines 54-55 and 75-77 are no longer needed, and currently break the build

techge commented on 2020-03-09 16:42 (UTC)

I have updated the package based on what the [extra] package is doing. Most of all, this has been included now:

I think this fixes the mentioned problem, does it @solstice ?

solsticedhiver commented on 2020-02-17 22:49 (UTC)

Why are the binaries in the package not stripped and with debug symbols ?

I have not changed /etc/makepkg.conf or changed anything for them to be not stripped.

Is it the ./configure/Makefile ?

Thanks for your hint and patience. I hope this is correct now.

solsticedhiver commented on 2019-05-28 09:19 (UTC)

Could you please follow the guidelines about PKGBUILD for VCS and use a proper pkgver() function like

pkgver() {
  cd "$pkgname"
  printf "r%s.%s" "$(git rev-list --count HEAD)" "$(git rev-parse --short HEAD)"

Thanks for letting me know! I have included the submodule now.

This is not building anymore. Please either comment the line

install -Dm 644 docs/dev/* "$pkgdir/usr/share/doc/$pkgname/"

or clone the submodule for the docs

Thanks. You are right with everything :) I changed it accordingly.

No, I didn't touch anything inside the source folder. The only thing which isn't default w/ my setup is that in my makepkg.conf, I changed the BUILDDIR to point to a folder inside /tmp (while the AUR source files are on a permanent file system). So stepping upwards twice leads to a folder outside the sources.

cd .. works in both cases (default setup or altered BUILDDIR / srcdir), b/c makepkg creates symlinks inside $srcdir to every file that is contained in the AUR sources.

EDIT: Alternatively, cd "$srcdir" would work as well.

Btw, u forgot to increment the pkgrel w/ the latest commit. ;) Anyways, thx for maintaining this package and still fiddling w/ it !

EDIT 2: Thank you again for updating so quickly !

techge commented on 2018-11-16 10:33 (UTC)

Mh, that's funny, because this shouldn't work... the file is part of the aur tarball and beforehand we cd to the source folder - so we need to go backwards twice. Did you may copy the conf file manually to another location?

Hi, thx a lot for the update ! I could build but needed to apply a little fix in line 41 of the PKGBUILD :

 @@ -38,6 +38,6 @@ package() {
       install -Dm 644 docs/dev/* "$pkgdir/usr/share/doc/$pkgname/"

       # create group kismet via sysusers
-      cd ../..
+      cd ..
       install -vDm 644 "${pkgname}-sysusers.conf" "${pkgdir}/usr/lib/sysusers.d/${pkgname}.conf"

Cheers !

techge commented on 2018-11-13 17:58 (UTC)

I only tested it shortly, but the new version should work now. Please let me know if it doesn't. I don't use Kismet anymore though.

Kr1ss commented on 2018-11-08 21:42 (UTC)

Any chance this will be converted into a real "-git" package again ? Provided snapshot doesn't work w/ protobuf-c-1.3.1-1, which is the currently in extra.

techge commented on 2018-03-30 12:45 (UTC)

I changed package to commit-based, as things break easily these days. Kismet developer did some things with python lately which causes problems while building. Will look at it later... Commit 019a7ef is from 2018-03-22 and works fine.

techge commented on 2018-03-30 11:54 (UTC)

You need to re-download the tarball. I added a file. I updated the PKGBUILD now, so that the file is mentioned there as well.

thx, updated accordingly

protobuf and protobuf-c have become dependencies.
