daniel_shub: Thanks for the hint! Although this package does not require systemd, it probably provides some additional functionality if systemd is installed while building. I will have a look at this (probably not before next week).

Although, if the additional functionality is limited, it may be a good idea to leave systemd as an optional dependency for those who want it (as it is currently the case for ceph).

Although systemd is included in the base group and therefore does not need to be included in depends, it is not in the base-devel group and therefore does need to be included in makedepends to enable the package to be built in a clean chroot:

alaricljs: Thanks for the report! This is an upstream bug which should be easy to fix. I added a corresponding patch. Could you please confirm that it solves the issue?

Don't know if this is upstream but the build dies on me because I have a Samba domain, previous versions have worked.

ln -sf
install: creating directory 'docs/man'
'docs/libdmmp.h.3' -> 'docs/man/libdmmp.h.3'
cat libdmmp/libdmmp.h | \
perl docs/ > /tmp/MYDOMAIN\mylogin/tmp.VAFmG0J7Zh
/bin/sh: line 1: /tmp/MYDOMAINmylogin/tmp.VAFmG0J7Zh: No such file or directory

I obfuscated my domain and login, but as you can see since there is a \ it needs to be quoted or escaped.

@Bevan: It works now, thanks. And you're right, I do not have systemd here.

Case_Of: This looks like you don't use systemd on your system and there is an upstream bug in this situation. I added a patch which should resolve this issue. Can you confirm it works now and that you are indeed having no systemd installed?

An error occurs during build:

Would you mind adding 'armv7h' to the supported architectures? It's the only thing missing to install this package on a Raspberry Pi. Tested (modified the PKGBUILD and updated arch line only), works fine.

Bevan commented on 2017-02-02 21:31

Thanks. That should be fixed now.
