Current .deb is throwing a 404 now.

Brilliant! Thank you very much for this package, it allowed me to install the spotify Linux client on Arch :)

new version (but no new version number) which reflects the changes in the debian package

This initially fails on amd64 with this error

==> Extracting sources...
-> Extracting libgcrypt11_1.5.0-5+deb7u3_amd64.deb with bsdtar
==> Entering fakeroot environment...
==> Starting package()...
x - debian-binary
x - control.tar.gz
x - data.tar.gz
tar: /tmp/yaourt-tmp-mischka/aur-libgcrypt11/src/data.tar.xz: Cannot open: No such file or directory
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package().
Aborting...


It then fails here, if you change the PKGBUILD to say gz because that's what's in the amd64.deb:
install: cannot stat ‘/tmp/yaourt-tmp-mischka/aur-libgcrypt11/src/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libgcrypt.so.11.8.3’: No such file or directory

So by changing .xz to .gz and _sover to 11.7.0 for amd64 as well it is able to build and install.

This is the current maintained version of an old libgcrypt version. It is recommended to use this version over the unpatched old upstream, because known problems are fixed for the current debian wheezy (see http://www.linuxsecurity.com/content/view/163465).

Use this version only for binary packages that you cannot build from source and that need libgcrypt11 (the .so-version this is).

Unfortunately the current wheezy version has a lower version than the former version used. So beware of the downgrade from 1.5.4 to 1.5.0!

This package is by no means unneeded cause it gives you the maintained version of an old upstream version. So, if you absolutely must use an old version of a cryptographic library, than you should go with a maintained version!

And naming it libgcrypt11 is just the right thing to do and it's BTW the same naming scheme most other distributions use.

kolewu, you're confused... this may sound stupid but libgcrypt15 actually provides libgcrypt.so.11. It's version 1.5 but the libtool version is 11. This package is indeed unneeded and I would recommend the other one.

kolewu commented on 2014-10-11 21:03

Yes, it looks like. Don't know what package requires libgcrypt.so.15 but this other packages does not serve this need.

Mine was needed by a binary packaged application that I wanted to try out and that required libgcrypt.so.11: http://faust.grame.fr/index.php/component/content/article/7-news/81-faustlive
