Tinu, I see that you did amazing job with this package and I'm sure that you can drive it without me. So let's leave you as an owner and I will stay just a user.

Oh, thanks! Do you still use it and would thus be interested in co-maintaining it?

Hi I just this only the package. Feel free to adopt and make required changes.

Hi, I'm currently maintaining a PKGBUILD for libfiber here, where I have applied the following changes:

  • It is built against Arch's packaged libev (rather than the one bundled with the upstream code, as it doesn't appear to have any libfiber-specific changes).

  • It changes the Makefile to compile libev with the dist scheduler rather than wsd (work-stealing), because latter appears to schedule fibers in a weird way (it somehow jumps back and forth between the same two fibers and never schedules any of the others; I'll have to investigate this a bit and perhaps ask upstream).

  • It installs also the headers + a pkgconf file for compiling and linking against libfiber.

  • It installs the LICENSE file (as it's custom:ISC).

Would you mind taking a look at that to see if those changes could be incorporated into the AUR package (so we don't have to maintain duplicate versions of the package)?

As I've only got an x86_64 machine to test, I have hardcoded the package and the pkgconf file to that architecture for now, so if you wish to support other architectures, it may need some tweaking.
