Here we go again... (please take a look at usbmuxd-git comments if you didn't)

- PYTHON=python2 given instead of disabling cython (for minimal deviation from official package)
- libusbmuxd-git dependency moved to usbmuxd-git
- provides=(... "libimobiledevice=1.2") is wrong since the version (as in config.h) is 1.1.6

Could you please update the PKGBUILD? A better pkgver() can be used, libplist may be replaced with libplist-git and there is a couple of fixes to the build process...

You can find the updated package here:

Still breaks upower - after i install libimobiledevice-git and restart, systemd stops because of upower problems.

Breaks upower and thus gnome3 currently. upower depends on /usr/lib/ but but this package provides /usr/lib/

ah, the usbmuxd-git in the deen ds is nt necessary, because there already is usbmuxd available via pacman.
But as I now saw, libimobiledevice itself also is available via pacman.
Thats nice :-)
But it would be better if this would be mentioned on AUR, it took my a while until - by chance - found it out....

Thanks a lot mtwomey!
You were right, I needed to install libtool and everything went like a charm.

Anonymous comment on 2012-07-31 02:11

@gpain I had this exact same issue. Turns out I was missing libtool (this was noted near the beginning of the build process).

sebikul commented on 2012-07-19 00:08

@gpain: It builds just fine on a clean chroot. Could you be more specific please?

Anyway, I updated the PKGBUILD to remove some unused features.
