@adrienrx: Do not flag packages out of date unless there is a new stable release available.

Report the issue upstream, it's not a packaging issue.

Right now the creation of a hotspot fails after updating manjaro. Apparmor is preventing dnsmasq to work properly.

A workaround on the manjaro forum is to run this command: ╰─ sudo aa-complain -d /etc/apparmor.d/ dnsmasq

I don't think this is a long term workaround as this is for sure impacting the security of the system. Someone on the manjaro forums is saying the profile of the app should be finely tuned instead. Is this package still maintained ?

for some reason i need to manually enter my root password multiple time to create hotspot. i suspect it polkit issue since it prompt me the polkit password thing but not too sure. this happen recently, before i dont need to do anything to start it.

warning: directory permissions differ on /usr/share/polkit-1/rules.d/
filesystem: 750  package: 755

Which mode should I use?

I've tested this on armv7h, so I think you can add that to the archs as well. Thx.

@sigmacold: Done!

Policykit rule needs to be patched "sudo" -> "wheel"

And then the user needs to make sure hes in the wheel group.

@yochananmarqos I hope to be able to participate in the maintenance of this software package. If you agree, please add me and lilac as co-maintainers. (lilac is a management bot)

@TheOrb: Upstream only releases an x64 binary. I can't test for ARM myself, but sounds like it should be fine. I've added aarch64.

Is there a reason this package has no aarch64 support? It compiles and runs on a Raspberry Pi 3/4 running Arch/Manjaro with all dependencies being available, when changing the PKGBUILD file to include aarch64 (Unless you are supposed to be able to start the GUI from command line with sudo, instead of authenticating through the prompt after launch, but even then it is still very useful with the GUI, CLI and systemd service working) So please add aarch64 to the arch list

Great work and a good day
