Is there a missing dependency for this package?

ERROR: ... sh: btrfs send '_btrbk_snap/@user.20220429' | mbuffer -v 1 -q -m 256m | btrfs receive '/backup/user/' ERROR: ... mbuffer: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

On another system that works, libmd is required by libbsd, which is required by cifs-utils and smbclient. This system that gives the error has mbuffer installed, but libmd was not installed as a dependency.

Please modify the .gitignore file to ignore additionally packages compressed with another algorithm instead of xz.

Here an example:

$ cat .gitignore

Please add armv7h architecture to PKGBUILD. I've verified that it builds successfully.

I would offer my help for this package. Stumbled upon this package after built a PKGBUILD myself. Just in time :-)

I'd also offer support, if there's need. Thx for the package btw.

I've added fryfrog as co-maintainer.

khenderick commented on 2019-08-06 16:59 (UTC)

I've update the package to the latest version.

Even though I try to update the package as soon as I get an out-of-date flag, I received an orphan request for this package today. As it seems people need this package as up-to-date as possible, I'd like to add one or more co-maintainers to this package. Let me know if you'd like to help me out.

Ouch, thanks. Didn't know updpkgsums, that's a lot easier. Thanks for the help, I'll keep it in mind.

fryfrog commented on 2017-12-21 18:07 (UTC)

Also, you boned the md5sum :)

I suggest edit PKGBUILD, mksrcinfo, updpkgsums, mksrcinfo then the ol' git commit and push. There might even be better / smarter ways, I keep finding them as I go. :)

fryfrog commented on 2017-12-21 17:39 (UTC)

Sorry about the orphan request! If you like, I'd be happy to co-maintain and help out. :)

khenderick commented on 2017-12-21 06:17 (UTC)

Updated. Sorry for the delay, got a lot going on, and seems I missed the first out-of-date flagged mail.

Updating to 20170921 fixes the build issue.
