@julianbrost Thanks, I have just added you as co-maintainer. Please go ahead with your updates.

I'd be willing to co-maintain the package.

Update: I have created a repo with my changes at

when building this in a chroot with only base-devel installed, this fails because of missing libedit dependency. Would you mind adding the dependency?

Additionally it seems libcap-ng is needed as-well?

BTW the packages in aur4 can be co-maintained, so if you are active user of Knot DNS and Arch, I would happily accept co-maintainers (if somebody tells me, how to add them...)

Some tests are failing with the 2.3.2 and 2.4.0. Ignoring these tests allows to complete the compilation, what seems to work (I'm using the 2.4.0 for a few days).

@Teaspoon: That’s perfectly normal, you are supposed to handle the rebuild of your AUR packages when one of their dependencies has an ABI bump. ;)

Had a problem, fixed it, posting here in case others run afoul of it...

Recently the liburcu in the official repositories updated to 0.9.2-1 and after installing that update my maching started failing to load Knot. Error was that it was unable to find My version jump was from 0.8.7-1.

I was able to get it running again temporarily with a /usr/lib/ symlink pointing to, and rebuilding+reinstalling the package has removed the need for the symlink.

@ArchangeGabriel All AUR packages assume that the base-devel package group is installed, which pkg-config is a part of.


@oerdnj As per the assumption above, the makedepends line of this PKGBUILD is redundant as autoconf, bison, flex, libtool, and pkg-config are all part of the base-devel group. Same thing applies to the knot-lts PKGBUILD.

Thanks for packaging knot, BTW!

Automatic config file conversions are not really the Arch way. For official packages and cases like this, announcements and howtos are put on the main web page. For AUR packages I'd say you can use the comments here, or put a notification in an .install file (check 'syncthing' for an example).
PS: great knot presentation on the weekend!
