I hope by now you have seen PKGBUILD at my Github repo "".
It builds a self-contained composite-package, as it builds following 3 components enclosed inside the piaware package which it builds:


I have used this technique of composite-packaging since Feb 2021

Subsequently using this compost-package technique, I created my above linked Github repository in May 2022.

I do not have a diff of PKGBUILD as I do NOT post my work on AUR.
However you can view PKGBUILD at my following Github repository:

Please also see my today's series of comments on AUR mlat-client-git, in which I have given fix for broken mlat-client:

If you like, you may look at my following repositories at Github:

Do you have a diff or the PKGBUILD that you used ?

Click on the link below to see the SCREENSHOT of Piaware logs, showing mlat is working on Arch Linux:

The piaware package was built by me, and it contained all the three components, i.e. piaware + faup1090 + fa-mlat-client.

Thanks anish for quick reply. It is not so difficult as you think.

(1) I have done it without using piaware_builder, but by using source-codes of piaware, dump1090, and mlat-client to build one composit package having piaware+faup1090+fa-mlatclient.

(2) The reason for broken mlat-client for piaware ver 9.0 is that it uses different python tools to build and install it, than the tools which were used for previous versions. I could successfully built mlat-client v0.2.13, for piaware ver 9.0, on my Arch Linux computer, using the latest python tools.

Using my own built composite piaware package for ArchLinux, I am now successfully feeding Flightaware from my ArchLinux machine, with mlat enabled and synchronized with several nearby receivers.

This builds piaware. What you're thinking of is a separate repo that is only setup for Debian based distros. Can't really build a metapackage dependent on aur packages I don't control Piaware is also tcl based but mlat-client is Python (and also currently broken in arch). It takes effort to keep all that working on a fast moving distro like arch, and I just do not have that much free time.

Why not build piaware package like Flightaware builds it's piaware package for RPi / Raspberry Pi OS?

What I mean is that the Flightaware piaware packae has all the following three components included in piaware.deb package:

(1) piaware (2) faup-1090 (3) fa-mlat-client

These 3 components get installed automatically when Flightaware supplied piaware.deb package is installed, and all 3 components get uninstalled when Flightaware supplied piaware.deb package is uninstalled.

@meijin this was fixed quite some time ago

This isn't working anymore because it uses git+git in the address. it should use git+https as GitHub remove the access by direct git protocol as it insecure.
