@zorun: I've backported the patch and it seems to build fine under kernel 4.10. Please let me know if there are any problems.

dcelasun commented on 2017-03-22 20:05

OK, I'll try to take a look as soon as I can :)

zorun commented on 2017-03-22 19:05

dcelasun, thank you, but the issue is that *this* package does not build currently :)

Hence why I was asking if this particular patch could be backported, before the the next release.

@zorun: This package tracks the latest release, which is 0.6.2. Try the Git version:

zorun commented on 2017-03-15 15:58

This is actually due a recent kernel change, that no longer exposes this API.

The issue has been fixed upstream:

Can it be backported here?

Version 0.6.2-1 fails to build in a clean chroot:

Maybe a missing dependency?

Hello dcelasun,

I was the maintainer for libcli AUR package for a few years now. I do not intend to maintain it anymore. Since your netsniff-ng package depends on it, being the only one that does so on AUR, I have transfered libcli's ownership to you (sorry for not asking beforehand). If you do not wish to maintain it, feel free to disown.

0.6.0-2 uses libsodium instead of libnacl (which nobody ported to AUR4), so curvetun is now enabled.

@Thermi: OK, I'll try to find some time this weekend to see if I can build with mausezahn.

Thermi commented on 2015-08-12 01:05


It would be quite nice to build mausezahn in the package, too, because
the PKGBUILD for it wasn't ported to the AUR 4.0 and development is done in netsniff-ng since the death of the developer 4 years ago.
