pacman appears to have some checks to prevent broken packages after upgrades. To use it, from what I can tell, put in provides for this package.

Then add to depends of otpclient.

Then on upgrade attempt, pacman should display an error like the following:

:: installing libcotp (3.0.0-1) breaks dependency '' required by otpclient

thanks, done

Oh, I had to rebuild otpclient and now everything is working again. I think otpclient just needs a bump.

Hi @polslinux, after upgrade 2.0.0-1 => 2.1.0-1 for libcopt, otpclient generates not valid TOTP codes (the code looks OK, but not valid), I temporarily downgraded to 2.0.0-1

Hello @polslinux, thanks for your great software! Please consider using cmake wrappers instead of make commands in PKGBUILD. When a custom CMAKE_GENERATOR environment variable is set, we have to use something like cmake --build . --target all instead of just make. The same applies to make install. I've prepared a patch for that. Would be glad if you apply it using git am to save my credits in commit history. Thanks!

Subject: [PATCH] Use cmake build and install wrappers instead of make ones

In case of custom `CMAKE_GENERATOR` environment variable (e.g. `Ninja`) we
have to use cmake wrappers instead of raw make commands in order to support
different build systems.

Seems like the SHA256 sum isn't right.

libcotp can be updated to v1.2.1 only when OTPClient 1.3.0 will be released (Oct 2018).
