@vicnat: thank you, fixed.

Initially not able to execute because when installed inspath variable in /etc/maldet/internals.conf is set as /usr/share/maldetect but maldet is installed in /usr/share/maldet

Edit internals.conf or doing a ln -s /usr/share/maldet /usr/share/maldetect solves the problem.

Maybe should be possible to add this correction to the package build file to patch the internals.conf pointing the correct directory.

thank you for the hint, it is updated now.
also, the package has been completely rewritten. please test if it works for you as well.

Please update to 1.6. And is 1.6 safe to use now?

@Tharbad: thank you for this hint, i was not aware of this.
still, i would be much more interested to see them implementing an appropriate installation method. anyone skilled in writing makefiles? they could certainly need that.

It's appears that the development is now on github:

This is what I had so far for the new version, but I didn't have it working yet. I hope you can get it working.

This package is currently in bad shape and should no be used as is!
It is currently refactored and updated, when all issues are fixed.

EDID: Uploaded an update for 1.5, but still strongly discourage using this as is.

Thanks @fabbox
The link was updated to a new gzip file with the sha256sum that you provided.
I updated the PKGBUILD without bumping the version since it is the same for anyone who has already built it but should now build for new users.

The only difference in the old and new tar.gz is the old tar.gz upstream had left a local .git folder in the package, everything else was the same.

Hello. I've got some trouble with the sha256sum. On my local machine, the sha256sum is '79b475e7217e6019289f9c13d5c0e4e39e85db57831e894b36324c77a375a77a' for the maldetect-1.4.2.tar.gz.
