@MarsSeed The upstream code this package builds from is based on squashfs-tools 4.3, so the lack of support for squashfs-tools 4.6.1 is an upstream issue and not an issue with this package. Because of that, and because this package still builds successfully even with the old version of squashfs-tools, I've unflagged it as "outdated".

That said, the upstream looks unmaintained, so if anyone finds (or creates) a fork that is both maintained and patches the latest squashfs-tools, I'll be happy to update this package to build from that fork.

Hello @selurvedu,

I'm not really using the packet any more. I removed me as a maintainer. So feel free to take over and upload your version of the PKGBUILD.

Best regards

I edited the PKGBUILD locally to let makepkg fetch, verify and unpack the sources directly, etc., just to find out that someone else did exactly the same thing before me. If you compare @xx55tt's version with mine you'll see they are exactly the same, except for really minor editing. I'll leave it here just in case that the link to pastebin dies.

P.S. I also believe that the license field should be set to GPL2 since sasquatch is based on squashfs which is licensed under GPL 2.0:

pkgdesc='Patched unsquashfs utility with support for vendor-specific SquashFS implementations'
depends=('lzo' 'xz' 'zlib')

pkgver() {
    cd "${srcdir}/${pkgname}"
    printf "r%s.%s" "$(git rev-list --count HEAD)" "$(git rev-parse --short HEAD)"

prepare() {
    cd "${srcdir}/squashfs4.3"
    patch -p0 < "${srcdir}/${pkgname}/patches/patch0.txt"

build() {
    cd "${srcdir}/squashfs4.3/squashfs-tools"
    make EXTRA_CFLAGS=-fcommon

package() {
    cd "${srcdir}/squashfs4.3/squashfs-tools"
    make INSTALL_DIR="${pkgdir}/usr/bin" install

Hello xx55tt,

sorry for the awfully late reply. I somehow missed the mail in my inbox.

I updated the dependencies. But I'm not that happy removing the script. If the repository somewhen starts to live up again, that maybe makes additional problems.

I doubt that I'm gonna use it regularly and I'm not really interested in maintaining it either.

There are still some issues left, so I've written a PKGBUILD from scratch. It uses the Makefile directly instead of the shell script. This means that the two patches and wget are no longer required to build the package. I've also added the missing dependencies. Feel free to use it:

Thanks again @xx55tt. I fixed it.

It seems that you want to actively use that packet. I only used it once in the past and never again. Should I add you as co-maintainer so that you can make the changes directly?

Thanks for the quick fix. However, I've run into an another issue. You are using git am to apply the patches.

There are two problems with this approach:

  1. git am will commit the patches to the local repository, so pkgver() always returns the commit hash of the last patch. It should return the last commit hash from the upstream repository.

  2. In a clean chroot there is no git configuration (name and email are not set), so git am fails to commit the patches causing makepkg to abort the building process.

Please replace git am with patch -p1 < "${srcdir}/...". With this change pkgver() will return the correct version string. (r58.3e0cc40)

Thanks @xx55tt for the hint. I added the makedepends.

xx55tt commented on 2020-08-12 17:43 (UTC)

makedepends=('git') is missing from the PKGBUILD, it's not possible to build this package in a clean chroot.

Thanks @svenschwermer for the patch. I applied it. But maybe you want to create a pull request for the original repository too:
