Broken for missing lvm2app header; lvm2app probably removed from lvm2 upstream

to have it working, one has to identify the last lvm2 working version, package it on the aur and make this package depend on that one

As I am not using it anymore and upstream hasn't seen updates since 2016, I'm not sure.

I would recommend to use partitionmanager [] instead.

Would it be possible to remove automoc4 so there's no qt4 dep?

haven't rebuild the package for a long time, but now it failed for me as well. glibc seems to have moved the sysmacros to their own header file, so I have created and added a patch to add the necessary header.

Should build now, although I get a lot of warnings that lvm2app is deprecated. So it might break for good at some point in the future.

The build fails for me.

@jo.mei, the major and minor functions are showing up as errors for me and are failing the build (using yay).

See below: /home/uname/.cache/yay/kvpm/src/kvpm-0.9.10/kvpm/logvol.cpp:1147:16: error: ‘major’ was not declared in this scope majornum = major(fs.st_rdev); ^~~~~ /home/uname/.cache/yay/kvpm/src/kvpm-0.9.10/kvpm/logvol.cpp:1148:16: error: ‘minor’ was not declared in this scope minornum = minor(fs.st_rdev); ^~~~~ /home/uname/.cache/yay/kvpm/src/kvpm-0.9.10/kvpm/logvol.cpp:1148:16: note: suggested alternative: ‘mknod’ minornum = minor(fs.st_rdev); ^~~~~ mknod make[2]: [kvpm/CMakeFiles/kvpm.dir/build.make:349: kvpm/CMakeFiles/kvpm.dir/logvol.cpp.o] Error 1 make[1]: [CMakeFiles/Makefile2:1052: kvpm/CMakeFiles/kvpm.dir/all] Error 2 make: *** [Makefile:141: all] Error 2

Hi Amplificator, I can't reproduce your problem. For me it's running fine. Maybe one of the linked libraries changed, although I don't see any problems on my side. Did you get any problem/warning during the build? Only thing I get is a warning from GNU C about "mayor" and "minor" functions.

I get a segfault when running the tool: [1] 118187 segmentation fault sudo kvpm Any suggestions?

Hi, I don't think kdoctools or kdesignerplugins are actual dependencies, since kvpm doesn't link against anything in those packages. But you are right that CMake won't configure without them. So I added them as makedepends.

Hi, the package is missing kdoctools and kdesigner as dependencies, CMake won't configure without them

Hi, since the packages was orphaned I took over ownership and updated it to the current version. If any problems occur please comment.
