@egrupled: Thanks!

I'll keep maintaining this package for those who are using it, as linux-apparmor also sets:


which core/linux currently does not (people who want selinux would probably not be happy with that).

I encourage everyone who doesn't need this to switch to core/linux and configure your boot loader appropriately, unless you still want to compile your own kernel of course.

FYI: AppArmor is enabled in Archlinux kernels now:

@rasmusowl : See for an explanation.

You could run (as the current user):

gpg --recv-keys ABAF11C65A2970B130ABE3C479BE3E4300411886 647F28654894E3BD457199BE38DBBDC86092693E

Can some one help me why I'm getting this error

@renyuneyun A custom repo sounds like a good idea for those who want it. You don’t mention what you are using for automation, but could you parse the .SRCINFO for AUR packages instead of the PKGBUILD? I think this is how the AUR itself handles this problem.

renyuneyun commented on 2018-06-19 09:24

@alzeih Thanks for the clarification. It makes sense. I didn't really carefully read the content of core/linux/PKGBUILD previously (when I manually build kernel for apparmor on my machine).

The reason that I gave this modification is that I'm packaging this package in an automated process (of a custom arch repo), which can leverage the default split package behaviour of makepkg. The automated process doesn't support non-standard split package handling (yet?), so a "correct" PKGBUILD is needed.

Anyway, since this behaviour is inherited from official PKGBUILD and I think it's constant/static, I'll write a script to automatically change the content for the repo.

@renyuneyun Thanks for the patch! It makes sense given this PKGBUILD, however there are some other considerations.

This PKGBUILD is based upon core/linux's PKGBUILD. It's kept closely based so it's easy for someone to directly compare the two and be satisfied there is nothing unexpected.

The core/linux PKGBUILD allows for the pkgbase to be altered so it's easier for a custom kernel to be installed alongside the stock archlinux kernel. This seems to be why the original PKGBUILD doesn't use the automatic processes in makepkg.

If the split packages were not being generated then this would need fixing. As the split packages are being generated there's no need to fix it at the moment.

I will add back this line to the PKGBUILD:

#pkgbase=linux-custom       # Build kernel with a different name

which should make it clearer why the PKGBUILD is written as it is, and also make it easier to build the split packages with a different pkgbase.

renyuneyun commented on 2018-06-12 14:40

I made some changes to the PKGBUILD to use the automatic processes in makepkg. This will make makepkg generate the split packages correctly.
