@nl6720 Disabled prealloc.

The included udev rule causes issues with udisks2 2.10.1-1 (currently in testing).

$ udisksctl mount -b /dev/sdb1
Error mounting /dev/sdb1: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.UDisks2.Error.OptionNotPermitted: Mount option `prealloc' is not allowed

@MarsSeed Your suggestion appears to be dogmatic and practically incorrect since several packages in the official repositories still have erroneous dependencies on ntfs-3g, despite none of their functionalities being reliant on the fuse driver.

This should only conflict with, but not provide ntfs-3g*.

As it lacks the ntfs-3g FUSE driver due to using the --disable-ntfs-3g configuration.

Any package that needs only the utilities has to declare depends=(ntfsprogs).

@jnnk please read the note about base-devel here.

Hi, seems like the following dependencies are currently missing: autoconf, automake.

~/.cache/paru/clone/ntfsprogs-ntfs3/PKGBUILD: line 47: autoreconf: command not found
# after installing autoconf
Can't exec "aclocal": No such file or directory at /usr/share/autoconf/Autom4te/ line 274.

@tinywrkb Thanks. Disabled hd.

@FiestaLake it's very likely that @SargentD doesn't build in a clean chroot, so buildsystem is picking up and auto-enables a compile-time feature.

I suggest explicitly disabling the Windows compliant disk geometry feature by adding the buildsystem config option --without-hd, if you want to match extra/ntfs-3g.

Alternatively, you can explicitly enable this feature with --with-hd, add hdinfo to depends array (or to makedepends if the next is true), and maybe add to depends array in the package() function (depends+=('')) to block pacman update if the user didn't rebuild ntfsprogs-ntfs3 when has a new version.

Adding .so lib to depends means that the user will never end with unusable ntfsprogs-ntfs3, but if the user doesn't build in a chroot, then the package need to be removed or to force the update, and later rebuild against the updated

I know pretty much nothing on how pacman handles .so libs in the depends array, so I can't recommend going with this option.
