@je-vv: I have looked at the history of the Gruntfile and it still runs the "getExpireTime" task, which uses gitinfo. Also the grunt gitinfo plugin is the same version as it was in January.
It works fine though on my system with the tarball (outside of a git repo), so far i can't reproduce this error with any setup or version, but i don't see a reason why it should work now for people that encountered this problem in the past. The bug report(2376) got closed with basically "assemble the tasks yourself, if you don't like how we do it" and i would rather avoid replicating the build steps in the pkgbuild or patching the build system just for this... so see it as fairly permanent.

Is it still the case that using the released tarball doesn't work? I've read in past comments about it, but wondering if that's a permanent condition, or rather a temporary one... Thx !

Yes, this is indeed required, thanks for the notice Daniel. I have added it with the 1.15.4 release.

It works again after manually installing openssl-1.0, so this should probably be added as a dependency.

WaltzOfWoe: Thanks a lot, that does really work. Not a newer version, but the normal sqlcipher release instead of the fork.

Also it does not include all the openssl binaries anymore. The readme states "On Linux we dynamically link against the system OpenSSL." That is perfect!

Bug Manually set dependency @journeyapps/sqlcipher to newer version and it works

I had to install git-lfs in order to build the package.

@Jake True! And thanks indeed 1.14.4 still works.

@gj545rndmu: No, doesn't work either here, if you build from source on a system with glibc 2.28. You would have to downgrade glibc, build the patched signal package, update glibc again and then be able to run it...

I can only recommend to use 1.14.4, that still works.

We could use glibc 2.27 with patchelf for signal.

See for example:
