I took temporary ownership of the package to fix the dependency issue with the latest version of libusb.

It turns out that this package probably hasn't actually needed any dependency on the libusb/libusbx package since version 0.4.0 (!), due to libftd2xx being statically linked to an internally provided copy of libusb (which is currently libusb 1.0.20). See my commit (cf00c3f3f3) for more details, if you're interested.

I'm not in a position to really be a maintainer of this package, so I'm going to leave it as an orphan once again, for someone else to pick up; but I figured I would at least fix this problem right now.

due to libusb updated, please keep up with it. libusb>=1.0.8 instead of libusbx>=1.0.8

You can remove the dependency on libusbx. libftd2xx no longer depends on it (it seems to be linked statically to its own version)

% ldd libftd2xx.so.1.4.8 
    linux-vdso.so.1
    libpthread.so.0 => /usr/lib/libpthread.so.0
    librt.so.1 => /usr/lib/librt.so.1
    libc.so.6 => /usr/lib/libc.so.6
    /usr/lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2
% nm libftd2xx.so.1.4.8 | grep libusb_

I get this message when I run package update.

:: installing libusb (1.0.23-3) breaks dependency 'libusbx>=1.0.8' required by libftd2xx

I would guess that libusbx dependency needs to be replaced with libusb.

This package gives the following error for me

AttributeError: /usr/lib/libftd2xx.so.1.4.8: undefined symbol: stime

Hi @xiretza: I've tweaked the permissions here.

xiretza commented on 2020-04-06 16:02

The udev rules file should be installed with -Dm644 instead of -Dm755. There's no reason for it to be executable, and udevadm test complains about it:

Configuration file /etc/udev/rules.d/55-ft2232.rules is marked executable. Please remove executable permission bits. Proceeding anyway.

I cannot reliably maintain so I have given up ownership. Apologies for the delay.

Just a heads-up, libftd2xx isn't released under the GPL. The actual license terms are here: https://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/FTDriverLicenceTermsSummary.htm

1.4.8 is out.

(and still needs a .SRCINFO regeneration for 1.4.6 currently packaged)

makepkg --printsrcinfo >.SRCINFO
