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

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

since the packages was orphaned I took over ownership and updated it to the current version.

If any problems occur please comment.
