@Taijian thanks for making the update

@schard: no, libnm-glib hasn't been required by this plugin in a long time. It was always possible to build without it, one just had to follow the upstream instructions.

But I agree, the PKGBUILD really should be updated.

Here's a patch to build without libnm-glib:

Works like a charm for me.

libnm-glib has been removed from the repos, since it's no longer used by networkmanager and is not yet available in the AUR (though some forks are). Is it really still required by this plugin?

All Linux kernel packages (for normal Arch Linux x86_64) provide WIREGUARD-MODULE:

If you're using ALARM, that's a bug in the kernel packages, I'm gonna send them a pull-request.

This package does not depend on resolvconf. wireguard-tools does. Please open a bug on the issue tracker for wireguard-tools.

brackenhill-mob commented on 2020-07-19 08:44

Needs a dependency for a DNS resolver (ie openresolv)

/var/daemon.log always reports NetworkManager[2941]: /usr/sbin/wg-quick: line 32: resolvconf: command not found

Since kernel 5.6 includes the wireguard kernel module, how should I build this extension? Can I just delete the WIREGUARD-MODULE dependency?

Thanks for the PKGBUILD It also builds and works on arm by changing arch='any'

Depau commented on 2019-09-09 14:07

Added. Thank you
