Thank you, @m3thodic. I have updated the package.

Here is an updated PKGBUILD that symlinks instead of patching files:

# Maintainer: Alex Sarum <rum.274.4 at gmail dot com>
# Contributor: Gavin Lloyd <>
# Contributor: Bailey Fox <>

pkgdesc='Intel Management Engine firmware analysis tool'
depends=('python-colorama' 'python-crccheck' 'python-pltable')
makedepends=('dos2unix' 'git')

pkgver() {
  cd "${srcdir}/${pkgname}"
  git describe --long --tags | sed 's/^v//;s/\([^-]*-g\)/r\1/;s/-/./g'

prepare() {
  cd "${srcdir}/${pkgname}"

package() {
  cd "${srcdir}/${pkgname}"
  install -Dm644 MEA.dat "${pkgdir}"/usr/lib/meanalyzer/MEA.dat
  install -Dm644 Huffman.dat "${pkgdir}"/usr/lib/meanalyzer/Huffman.dat
  install -Dm755 "${pkgdir}"/usr/lib/meanalyzer/

  install -dm755 "${pkgdir}"/usr/bin
  ln -s /usr/lib/meanalyzer/ "${pkgdir}"/usr/bin/meanalyzer

I'm unsure what the problem is but the AUR package fails but cloning the source git repository works fine. The error:

Switched to a new branch 'makepkg'
==> Starting prepare()...
patching file
Hunk #1 FAILED at 7654 (different line endings).
Hunk #2 FAILED at 9011 (different line endings).
2 out of 2 hunks FAILED -- saving rejects to file

Also, python-pltable doesn't seem to work with the latest meanalyzer while python-pltable-git does.

@egrupled thanks, this seems to work for me

python-pltable-git is available in AUR:

You also need to add epoch=1 to PKGBUILD and refresh version as current AUR version is detected as newer than building last commit form git.

Give me a bit to fix this. Apparently PTable was renamed to PLTable, which is now provided on pypi. So I'm going to create a new package for PLTable and list it as a dependency.

python-huffman11-git package doesn't work. You have to use from upstream and patch it's location similarly to MEA.dat. Below is modified db-location.patch:

@egrupled I've confirmed python-prettytable isn't needed, and I'll drop it in the next update. Before I do though, can you confirm python-huffman11-git isn't needed anymore?

egrupled commented on 2019-06-16 14:30 (UTC)

@fox8091 python-prettytable and python-huffman11-git aren't needed for this package. Please drop them.
