I have issue with version 0.35

The signature I have is below: 323e79a4861f96aed75369a5b9048791a8aca1e72c9d8e1c87531346cba6a7ab nwipe-0.35.tar.gz

But the package expects fbafa2f7b6dce31bde628399b177e99894cb8ec4c24a1c41cef2d42df7185504

Can you update it ?

If I manually edit it, then I have issue with "libconfig library not found". But if I install it, everything is fine.

Could you require libconfig?

If you don't have this package installed, then you will receive an error during the build() phase that ends like this:

checking for LIBCONFIG... no
checking for main in -llibconfig... no
configure: error: libconfig library not found
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

@robertfoster sorry for that, after 3 hours of trial, error and research, I finally found out that sudo pacman -S git base-devel was missing on Manjaro. That fixed it then. package now installed.

@Neome package can be installed and is working successfully, don't know why you marked as not updated and you've done an orphan request
