I highly recommend you guys look at the README in the github repo which states:

> However if you have systemd 229 or newer the better option is to use script from which uses DBus calls instead of creating temporary *.network files.

Which can be found here

Systemd is at 233 right now for me, so it is a much better option to use it instead.

I confirm archerie findings. As is, this PKGBUILD requires manual chmod.

This packages creates /etc/openvpn/update-resolv-conf but on my system that file has permissions created as 0655. It should be 0755 so that openvpn doesn't fail with this error:

Options error: --up script fails with '/etc/openvpn/update-resolv-conf': Permission denied

After updating the script did not update resolv.conf anymore. A possible fix is described here

@flamusdiu I've updated the PKGBUILD for both packages now to properly mark the conflict and the provides relationship between them.

@mtereinish: You need to add 'provides' and 'conflicts' for both this and openvpn-update-resolv-conf-git packages. It would allow people to use either package to satisfy the requirement.

Sorry for the delay, I was on vacation followed by some work travel and didn't get a chance to update it prior today. I've switched this package to be a fixed version per the pacaur bug and created a separate vcs package openvpn-update-resolv-conf-git which pulls it from git. I'll try to be more prompt on updating this package when someone marks it out-of-date.

@Mertcan that's an issue with the script being packaged here. I suggest you file a bug or a pull request to the upstream git repo: we can update this package once a fix has been applied.

###which: no resolvconf in ((null))###

RESOLVCONF=$(which resolvconf)


RESOLVCONF=$(type -p resolvconf) or find and replace resolvconf location

I've emailed the package maintainer, hopefully he replies otherwise we might have to wait for package orphan to take it over and get it working again...

This package can no longer be installed using pacaur AUR helper. Could the maintainer please see this comment from the pacaur creator about a solution to fix it? The package should be renamed to a '-git' package according to

The resolvconf issue is fixed now.
