There's no need to add it to the conflicts array, since both packages provide and conflict with refind-efi.

Let's hope Rod Smith will merge your patches soon.

Hello. I published a version with a few patches (I'm hoping for them to be merged upstream), based on this package. Available here: refind-efi-git-patched. The differences between the upstream version and the patched version are described in a comment there.

I used your PKGBUILD, only slightly modified (you are credited in PKGBUILD in accordance to AUR guidelines). I would recommend you to add that package to the 'conflicts' section.

This is a -git package so it will always be newer, see for changes since 0.10.3 . is compiled with TianoCore EDK2. There is also which is compiled with GNU-EFI.

This package currently doesn't compile with TianoCore EDK2. From what I understand rEFInd needs UDK2014, but UDK2014 doesn't build with GCC5. Any help with solving this problem would be appreciated.

nl6720, thank you for adopting this package. I am coming back to looking at this after using the version in [extra] for a long time that has not been updated since the end of last year. the build seems to work fine for the current git version - but I don't know if this is the same as the version provided by Rod Smith at ? I don't know if that version is built with the tianocore library or gnu-efi, or if this build in arch aur is a newer version?

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.

ridikulusrat commented on 2014-05-17 01:52

@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.
