@caddar I actually no longer use the package - would you like to take over?..

caddar commented on 2017-12-31 10:27

project-url seems dead. I guess the current one should be the github page (

veox commented on 2016-05-12 13:34

@jponin There's an issue for that upstream:

Let's wait a few days.

jponin commented on 2016-05-11 09:10


could you update the file ?

The AC_INIT variable in is still at 1.1.14 instead of 1.1.15, causing rdup -V to output, well, 1.1.14.

veox commented on 2016-05-09 13:02

Thanks, fixed.

Also bumped version to 1.1.15, and added `autoreconf` to `build()` (since `configure` is not shipped).

Probably best to clone / download a release instead.

Package moved to AUR4.

veox commented on 2015-02-16 03:51

Adopted, source link changed, AUR package ChangeLog removed, pkgrel bumped.

als commented on 2014-03-23 13:33

Source link is obsolete. At present the source package is available at

@dlin: Yes, rdup has had this problem a couple of times already (I mean the build process does not handle multiple jobs well). I've added -j1 to PKGBUILD to prevent this trouble, until the author fixes the Makefile.

dlin commented on 2013-04-18 01:04

Can't build, x86_64,
/usr/include/glib-2.0 -I/usr/lib/glib-2.0/include -c base64.c
strip rdup rdup-tr rdup-up
strip: 'rdup': No such file
strip: 'rdup-tr': No such file
strip: 'rdup-up': No such file
make: *** [strip] Error 1

I found the temp solution is '-j1' option on make

bender02 commented on 2013-04-07 13:49

@tongpu: thanks. Hopefully fixed in 1.1.14-2.

tongpu commented on 2013-04-02 21:26

I needed to apply this patch to make it compile with libarchive 3.1.2-1:

@andreas_baumann: Thanks.

pkg-config is a member of [base-devel] group which you're supposed to have installed if you build aur packages.

Anonymous comment on 2011-05-10 09:40

Please add pkg-config as a dependency. My build failed because it was missing on my system.

Anonymous comment on 2011-05-06 15:57

Thanks! it runs through now.

bender02 commented on 2011-05-06 10:36

OK, should compile now (1.1.11-2). It compiled when I submitted -1... so maybe some gcc change caused this?

Anonymous comment on 2011-05-05 19:11

Does not compile...
Once again with error message in english. Thanks
