Lilo does not compile under the latest Arch version. For fixing it just apply the patches on debian website:

Well there was actually no error. Here is what I got:
==> Starting build()...
GCC version 3.3.5 or later is required
gcc version 4.8.2

AS86 version 0.16.14 or later is required
as86 version 0.16.19

LD86 version 0.16.14 or later is required
ld86 version 0.16.19

BCC version 0.16.14 is recommended
bcc is not present
You will not be able to make floppy2, diag2.img or
After this it builds just fine. I can't see anything missing in the now created package. Perhaps we do not need bcc. But why I got this warning?

It built on my machine without bruce. Can you post the error you're getting?

lks commented on 2014-02-20 21:03

Dear ConnorBehan,
Please add bruce-c-compiler only as make dependency for lilo. Otherwise lilo's mkrescue tool would not build.

lks commented on 2014-02-20 20:58

Dear ConnorBehan,
Please add bruce-c-compiler as make and optional dependency.

You're right. Old link was bogus.

Public download links that require you to log in are a pile of bullshit! Please upload elsewhere. :/

Thanks for making this package. I didn't even realize lilo was dropped from the official repos until I tried to upgrade the new filesystem package.

One small issue: /usr/bin/keytab-lilo conflicts with the syslinux package...
