If somebody needs a FC modules too, please, comment out. I have no FC card on current PC, so they're useless for me, as well as infiniband's srpt.

There's also .spec file for building DKMS package, somebody may feel free to porting it: https://sourceforge.net/p/scst/svn/HEAD/tree/trunk/scst-dkms.spec.in

@ozz regarding your half-of-the-year old comment, I think many people won't use SCST because it is not so "user-friendly"(scstadmin is hardly friendly in any way). But I totally admire how sysfs interface works, it is original in some way but quite reliable. In fact, often I regret that some things(like DRBD for example) do not provide their own sysfs interface in simiar way. Also, scstadmin is quite messy from point of a code-style. Once upon a time I thought to implement some sample client on python but I haven't got time for it yet. But considering well-defined structure of sysfs, that shouldn't be a problem.

I used SVN instead of tarball(quite old by now). I don't want to rename the package since it seems that source code tarballs aren't fitting SCST project workflow. Anyway, Vlad's reply on production quality of 3.3: https://sourceforge.net/p/scst/mailman/message/36326570/

Sorry for delaying the update, was quite busy living.

I haven't built this in a while. It appears to be broken currently. The sourceforge link fails. Plus it's way out of date anyway.

Thanks for creating this even though it doesn't seem popular. I don't think very many people use iSCSI and those that do are using very old stuff. I was a fan of IET and hated the move to LIO because LIO has never worked as well. At this point LIO is totally broken in 4.14+ kernels to the point that diskless iSCSI clients can't boot at all and requests to fix are going ignored.

I understand why people don't use SCST though because it's a real PITA to install on many distros, often requiring compiling your own kernel. I wish it was chosen to be mainlined in the kernel instead of LIO.

Anyway, I digress. Thanks!

Yeah, seems like first bug is 'cause I've testing this on already cached copy of sources. Thanks for the tips!

Also, is really somebody on Arch needs SCST pkgs? WOW.

Also this creates directories and files in /usr/man. Those should be in /usr/share/man.

Looks like this is broken because it tries to download "https://sourceforge.net/projects/scst/files/scst-${version}.tar.bz2/download" and ${version} is undefined. I changed "version" to "pkgver" and it worked.
