@hackepeter: Not out-of-date. There is a 2.38.0 tag, but 2.37.1 is still the latest release.

@willemw Thanks for the update. It's always a good idea to wait a week if serious bugs show up for fs-modules, so far it doesn't seem the case. :)

@francoism90: thanks for quickly flagging the package out-of-date. I follow the mergerfs releases with urlwatch, so it is unlikely I will miss a release.

I'll wait a week or so before updating the package, just in case there are some issues with the release.

I could add mergerfs-tools-git to be helpful and maybe I will. I've done it before for other packages (where both packages where -git packages). But the real/correct fix should come from mergerfs-tools-git.

Adding the conflict name here goes against the suggested guidelines: "..., you do not need to specify that conflicting package in your conflicts" (https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/PKGBUILD#conflicts).

Note: you can view the conflicts array as a list of provide names.

@willemw Please add mergerfs-tools-git instead, a stable/tagged release doesn't exists.

Adding conflicts is always useful to prevent overwriting/conflicts by the package manager.

@francoism90:

Added provides name mergerfs-tools. Package mergerfs-tools-git still needs to be updated (see comment there).

mergerfs-git already provides and conflicts with (provide name) mergerfs. It is redundant for package mergerfs to conflict, the other way around, with mergerfs-git.

Could you please add mergerfs-tools-git as optdepends and add mergerfs-git as conflicts? :)

@trumee: it might be worth checking and/or reporting that upstream (https://github.com/trapexit/mergerfs#mergerfs-or-libfuse-crashing).

I was getting "Transport endpoint not connected" with kernel linux-lts-5.4.83-1 and mergerfs-2.32.1-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz.

Reverting back to 5.4.77-1-lts and mergerfs-2.31.0-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz resolved the issue for me.

@Sparticuz:

My point was that it is not necessary to extend "arch" in order to build on ARM.

Even ArchLinuxARM themselves don't do it for their own repository packages. Not even for modified PKGBUILD files specific for ARM (https://github.com/archlinuxarm/PKGBUILDs).
