After last update of the package monkeysphere (2016-06-24 09:06) makepkg is unable to build due to a failure in the function check(). The failure occurs also in a clean environment.

@samba are you able to then use monkeysphere subkey-to-ssh-agent?

I tried on a fresh install using a previously working subkey and with your suggestion I was unable to add my key to the agent. Purging and reinstalling as-is worked.
I did not try to create a new subkey tought

monkeysphere doesn't work with gpg1 in /usr/bin
need a mv and link to gpg2

# monkeysphere gen-subkey
No secret keys found. Create an OpenPGP key with the following command:
gpg --gen-key

# mv /usr/bin/gpg1 /usr/bin/

# ln -s /usr/bin/gpg2 /usr/bin/gpg1

# monkeysphere gen-subkey
A valid authentication key already exists for primary key 'XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX'.
Are you sure you would like to generate another one? (y/N) y
Please enter your passphrase for .....

i'm orphaning it to svalo :)

Here's an ungly way to make it work:
yaourt -S gnupg1 from aur

and then

sed -i 's/LC_ALL=C gpg/LC_ALL=C gpg1/g' /usr/bin/monkeysphere
sed -i 's/LC_ALL=C gpg/LC_ALL=C gpg1/g' /usr/bin/monkeysphere-host
sed -i 's/gpg --fixed-list-mode --no-greeting --quiet --no-tty "$@"/gpg1 --fixed-list-mode --no-greeting --quiet --no-tty "$@"/g' /usr/bin/monkeysphere-authentication

So the import works and the connection too

It doesn't work anymore with gnupg 2.1.0, the export option export-reset-subkey-passwd has been removed from gnupg so adding the subkey to the agent fails

done, though tests still fail :c

can you please update the package to 0.37? its out of date for quite some time :)

fauno commented on 2013-07-18 16:05

yes i'm aware i've discussed this on monkeysphere's list for 0.36 :)

no idea about the sshd thing it works for me but it returns false while testing for running `ssh test true`...
