Precompiled pacman-static resources

Since I am a Trusted User, you can verify my packages/binaries against my package signing key in the default keychain.

Prebuilt packages

My custom repository (i686/x86_64).

Direct links to the extracted binary.

If your computer is broken, you can download this, verify the signature with the repo keyring using pacman-key -v, and transfer via USB to your broken system:

There's no such thing as being compatible with "aur installers". This package is written according to the PKGBUILD spec, and if you find an AUR helper which cannot install it, you should report a bug to the AUR helper.

That's assuming you want to compile it yourself rather than using my generously provided precompiled builds. pacman can install from a custom repository just fine, as long as you configure it correctly...

after some broken libraries in my computer, you save my life with this package, thank you!

Updated to use proper sources, build the dependent static libs properly, and generally make this not be a terrible hack.

All pacman binaries are built and renamed to *-static, the static library dependencies are installed to a private libdir and are available for building other static libalpm programs via pkg-config, and scripts etc. are stripped out and expected to be provided by pacman itself, so this can be co-installed with the core pacman package.

Any update?

Ugh... and drop the stupid dependencies that gpgme wants like python and qt5... know what? I'll just keep working on this until I get it working and then list all the changes I had to make.

zashi commented on 2017-04-26 19:12

Also, please add the --without-openssl option to libarchive.

Can you drop the --pkg argument from makepkg? That will make this work again.

The new version now builds as a regular package, without root privileges. However, since it needs to recompile so many packages, it just grabs the latest arch patches from ABS and is not tied to any particular version. Hence, this is effectively "devel" package--the fact that you compiled version 2013 doesn't mean anything about the versions of pacman or the libraries it is linked against.
