This builds and runs fine on aarch64, please add it as a target.

@xiretza: Indeed, you are right, the archive contains libraries with reference to architecture. I'll fix it now!

xiretza commented on 2020-04-28 20:28

@khvalera: it says right there it's an archive. It contains object files. Which are architecture specific by definition.

@xiretza: file * libpcre16.a: current ar archive libpcre32.a: current ar archive libpcre.a: current ar archive libpcrecpp.a: current ar archive libpcreposix.a: current ar archive I may be mistaken, but namcap is simply looking for a mention of ELF in a binary file. It should be something like: ELF 64-bit LSB or ELF 32-bit LSB ... Or am I wrong?

@khvalera: 1.

Adding ARM architectures to "arch=()" is useful for pre-built binary packages (*-bin packages).

@xiretza: 1. I do not see architecture bindings in the package. 2.Source became unavailable just yesterday! Corrected. 3. PGP does not work for me and for many.

That is not how arch=(any) works - quoting PKGBUILD(5):

Packages that contain no architecture specific files should use arch=('any').

This package most definitely contains architecture-specific binaries, so it MUST specify all supported architectures in the arch= array separately.

Edit: also, the mirror seems to be down, as noted by @lilmike - I'm assuming the package owner got the download from somewhere, could you change source= to that?

Final: The official downloads are at, please change the source= to that. Also, the PGP signature works just fine, why was it commented out in the latest release?

Are the sources failing to download for anyone else? For me the connection just hangs, like it's being dropped by a firewall.

Nothing like having to skip a pgp check just to install this.

Works on all arch, blease set arch=(any), tested with armv6h
