@TheHardew the PKGBUILD has been updated to reflect the architectures for which nginx-mainline-src is available per Arch Linux ARM.

TheHardew commented on 2022-06-07 11:21 (UTC)

Any reason arm is not marked as supported? Seems to work fine on raspberry pi 4.

Thanks for the diff @kescherAUR - the PKGBUILD has been updated to reflect your proposed changes. The nginx configure flags were included in the build() function by a past maintainer; I did not realise their presence would cause issues when building with custom nginx packages.

kescherAUR commented on 2022-01-13 11:17 (UTC)

Please adjust build() to not use the NGINX configure flags, as not only is that entirely unneccessary, it breaks when building this for custom nginx packages that provide nginx-mainline (for instance, nginx-quic).

The following git diff works just fine:

@BotoX + @RiCON - thanks for the suggestions. I agree that using nginx-mainline-src is a better option, and I have updated the PKGBUILD accordingly.

improved the PKGBUILD to use nginx-mainline-src

@RiCON interesting, I did not realise that nginx-mainline-src could be used for compilation. I will consider it.

RiCON commented on 2021-03-10 23:14 (UTC)

Hey, I've modified this to use nginx-mainline-src instead of using a hardcoded nginx version:

It'll require less maintenance work from you, as users just know that for every new nginx-mainline version they need to recompile their nginx-mainline-mod-* AUR packages.

morgenstern commented on 2021-03-09 19:55 (UTC) (edited on 2021-03-09 19:58 (UTC) by morgenstern)


@duffydack this package will only be updated once nginx-mainline has been updated. Therefore, I recommend you set IgnorePkg in pacman.conf to omit any nginx packages until you can confirm that modules such as this are up-to-date.

duffydack commented on 2021-03-09 18:52 (UTC) (edited on 2021-03-09 18:53 (UTC) by duffydack)

@akiirui; Yeah, I've already amended the pkgbuild to reflect the nginx-mainline updated version, to verify it builds and functions as before. Just thought I'd give a heads-up on the situation.

akiirui commented on 2021-03-09 18:41 (UTC)

@duffydack You can edit the PKGBUILD manually, L7 to pkgrel=4 L9 to _nginxver=1.19.8 And makepkg --geninteg copy output, overwrite the L18~L20.

At last, makepkg and pacman -U PACKAGE

duffydack commented on 2021-03-09 18:23 (UTC)

Can you bump the nginx version to 1.19.8 as the module needs rebuilding against it. => /usr/lib/nginx/modules/" version 1019007 instead of 1019008`

SibrenVasse commented on 2019-01-30 22:33 (UTC)

Please fix the .SRCINFO

wangqr commented on 2018-03-31 12:27 (UTC)

Currently `pkgrel' in .SRCINFO and PKGBUILD don't match. AUR helpers (eg. yaourt) now always think that there is a new version, because the pkgrel in AUR(4) is greater than installed(3).

hdhoang commented on 2018-03-28 09:59 (UTC)

This is awkward: the PKGBUILD determines nginx version at build time, and downloads the corresponding source. In the -4 release bump, I deleted that version line from .SRCINFO so that nginx doesn't show up in Sources list above.

When a new nginx-mainline release enters [community], I will bump the release number again to trigger rebuild for you. [community-testing] users would need to rebuild on their own.

hdhoang commented on 2017-10-21 02:18 (UTC)

Thank you for your concern. I have switched to verifying the nginx source by PGP signature instead of checksum, because testing users may have different nginx version than I do. Please verify that that fingerprint is the proper nginx signing key's (e.g. by looking for it in the PKGBUILD), then import it into your builder's gpg keyring gpg --recv-keys 520A9993A1C052F8

hdhoang commented on 2017-07-20 02:49 (UTC)

I think -6 has fixed that. I'll also notify other module packagers

hdhoang commented on 2017-07-20 00:32 (UTC) (edited on 2017-07-20 00:33 (UTC) by hdhoang)

that option comes from nginx -V as part of this --with-cc-opt='-march=x86-64 -mtune=generic -O2 -pipe -fstack-protector-strong -fno-plt -D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2' maybe the single quote got unwrapped somehow. I'll look into it.

THX, i added both (i commented fancyindex out, because it wasn't available by default). After installation i still had autoindex on. THX for the PKGBUILD

hdhoang commented on 2017-06-07 09:19 (UTC)

Have you replaced the "autoindex on;" directive with "fancyindex on;"?

x-f commented on 2017-06-07 07:56 (UTC)

How to enable the fancyindex? nginx -t had a syntax error, i installed the module and loaded the module with load_module /usr/lib/nginx/modules/; in nginx.conf - outside of server and http. fancyindexx options has no errors, but the output isn't fancyindex.
