I packaged the frontend web application for anyone interested:

@KiralyCraft Glad it worked :-)

@izaera Seems to be good now, I managed to install it on a fresh system without any hiccups, from aur to the systemd service, it's good now. Thanks for the fast fix!

@KiralyCraft I've added the dependency and increased the pkgrel. That should fix it I think. Can you confirm? Thx

@izaera Thanks for the fast reply - I've spun up a minimal Arch installation, without lmdb (as Arch seems to come without it in the minimal install) and added it to this package's makedepends. Naturally, it compiled fine, and I was curious to whether it can be removed afterwards. Surely enough, after I removed it, ot-recorder no longer starts as it complains about not being able to find the shared library, which makes me believe this is actually a dependency, as they seem to dynamically link to the system library. I'm not sure why they mention it as included then, a grep of lmdb on the source tree doesn't show anything useful

@KiralyCraft Works for me. Both in Arch Linux 32 and 64...

But because I have lmdb installed in both systems, most probably :-D

According to the project lmdb is included but they require to install the dev packages of lmdb to compile ->

So I'm not sure if I need to include lmdb as a "makedepends" or as a "depends"...

Since I cannot uninstall lmdb in my systems, can you please test if "makedepends" is enough or we need to go with "depends"? Thanks :-)

There seems to be a dependency on lmdb which this package doesn't include, if I installed it manually it compiled fine. Otherwise, it complained about lmdb.h which was missing.

I'm no longer using owntracks so I'd be glad if someone takes over the maintenance of this package.

If anyone is interested just leave a comment ;-)

So, I have uploaded a new PKGBUILD pointing to the last version.

It is compiled with all features enabled (ie: LUA, encryption, MQTT, ...), though I have only tested HTTP.

Note that, by default, the config file disables MQTT so that the first time you run the service it works 😅.

I have relocated/renamed some files (even if that means drifting a bit from upstream) to better suit Arch Linux standards.

Oh, I have also limited the ghash map size to 100MB because the default value makes the package fail in 32 bit architectures. Hopefully 100MB should be enough...

Thanks for taking over

Thanks for your previous work, too 😊
