hello :) minor mistake in script: 120 line need to change "smem" to "semem" due to renamed semem binary

DescartesHorse commented on 2017-10-23 22:52

Minor typo in the post_install script - you've got "dude to file conflicts", but should be "due to file conflicts" :)

Please change package source to
It works.

renamed smem to semem.

Seems like the new version of extra/cfitsio (cfitsio-3.390-2) conflicts with this package (3.1-6):

error: file in conflict
cfitsio: /usr/bin/smem is already in the filesystem
(translated by me)

@TheSqrtMinus1 Are there plans to update the package's source?

Source is offline while my website is down for renovations, sorry.

This needs to be updated. The source is unreliable and likely not secure, so I'd recommend using a mirror,such as this one:

yhager commented on 2015-11-13 05:10

There's a redirect to HTTPS, which is signed by a RapidSSL certificate, that curl doesn't trust by default

kevincox commented on 2015-11-10 17:52

How is this getting a certificate error? The source is HTTP. I think I'm missing something.

GI_Jack commented on 2015-09-17 14:14

@fturco this is an issue with, they need to update their certs.

you can get around this by adding the -k option to the curl command in /etc/ in the DLAGENTs=() array, for http and https

GI_Jack commented on 2015-09-17 14:01

it should be good now.

GI_Jack commented on 2015-09-17 13:53

@fturco - same here, unfortunately there is nothing I can do about this, thc's cert expired. I'll give an email and tell 'em whats up.

fturco commented on 2015-09-17 07:30

I get the following error while running makepkg:

curl: (60) SSL certificate problem: certificate has expired
