Due to work and other life commitments, I am unable to devote time to maintain this package. Orphaned.

I just found that gnu-efi-libs was updated to 3.0v-2, and re-running the gnu-efi build now works for the first time since I tried it in the past couple of days.

I saw that there was a reference to building refind in the report at but also I was puzzled by the output from the gcc -v command on my machine which was:
$ gcc -v

Are the references to "unknown" normal here? I have not done any attempts at building for some time until recently when trying to build refind-efi. I have tried various PKGBUILD files, including from this package page. All show build fails but changing the options gives different errors which I can't find any consistency with.

I guess the edk2 revision number is changing not infrequently. I just looked and it is currently at revision 15547 (in the PKGBUILD file is is 15322 at the moment). I don't know if it is worth simply trying again with the newer revision or if there is code somewhere in the source files that needs fixing?

@ALL: I switched to GNU-EFI build for now, till I figure out the Tianocore GenFw issue.

@ALL: I have bumped the pkgver. Btrfs, Iso9660 and Reiserfs drivers are not building with gcc 4.9 and have not been built. The error is "Unsupported section alignment" similar to error while building ovmf-svn (see latest comment by FredBezies at ). This is due to some issue between tianocore and gcc 4.9 which I am unable to understand. This error does not seem to affect main refind.efi, and ext4, ext2 and hfs drivers.

All files have been moved to /usr/share/refind/ in the pkg.

ridikulusrat commented on 2012-11-12 14:07

@ALL USERS: Please use from now on.

@klickverbot: Should build now.

I'm trying to build this on a fully up-to-date Arch x86_64 box, and get

…/refind-efi-tianocore-git/src/tianocore-udk-svn_build_x86_64/Build/Mde/RELEASE_GCC46/X64/MdePkg/Library/UefiDevicePathLib/UefiDevicePathLib/OUTPUT/UefiDevicePathLib.lib(UefiDevicePathLib.obj): In function `IsDevicePathValid':
UefiDevicePathLib.c:(.text.IsDevicePathValid+0x50): undefined reference to `_gPcd_FixedAtBuild_PcdMaximumDevicePathNodeCount'

Any workaround known for this?
