As before, an update for 10.5.1 is in need:

Tested this, with success:

@jadoublet Don't comment each time the link expires, just report the package as out of date. It's not useful to create a fork, I just have to bump the package it's trivial. It's not useful either that get_nessus_link.py generates ab2sum as updpkgsums updates it automatically.

@noraj, I don't have access to contribute to your repo but I cloned your repo and made some changes that you can review here. This includes updates to not only PKGBUILD and .SRCINFO but also to get_nessus_link.py that also prints out b2sum of the new agent file that can be used in PKGBUILD and .SRCINFO.

Hi Noraj,

Thx, post_install() is working with yay. Guess removing the symlink should be added to:

I will try to fix the original problem at upstream. No promise ;-)

Thx and rgds, SJ

Fixed the symlink, moved it to the post_install()

the-sj commented on 2022-12-05 15:27 (UTC)

Hi Noraj,

So, I think it has something to do with the context package() is running in. All write operations run inside $pkgdir. Only the symlink action is absolute. Not sure, but as far as I remeber there is an other option for doing "post-install" actions. Creating the symlink can not be part of the "package()" build thing, imho. What do you think @noraj?, Rgds, SJ

the-sj commented on 2022-12-05 15:22 (UTC)

Hi noraj,

yay f.e. can not create the symlink, if there is no sudo, since you do not run yay as root. But I am wondering, why the rest is still working w/o sudo...

noraj commented on 2022-11-30 20:34 (UTC)

Hi the-sj,

it seems you only added sudo to the script? Why would that be needed? makepkg or any helper already ask you for privilege elevation.

Hi noraj,

Could you please fix the symlink workaround?
