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.

@kabbalah100 I updated the package to work on 32 bit, although I don't have a 32 bit machine to test it on so I'm not sure if it actually works.

matth commented on 2015-02-13 21:45

@kabbalah100 Thanks for the report for the 32 bit version. You can just remove that dependency from the PKGBUILD and then be able to build it successfully.
I'll update the package at some point soon so it doesn't include it for 32 bit.
