Package does not build because of invalid GPG signature. The signatured defined in validpgpkeys is not valid for version 1.1.6 [1], instead of that we should use key C90EF1430B3AC0DFD00E6EA541259773973A612A.

Doesn't build. Not only is the upstream link broken and reported here: it also contains linkage errors searching for Berkeley DB 4.6. Use SKS-HG instead found here:

Problem seems to be solved in upstream.

The package is broken for me.

Error: Some fatal warnings were triggered (1 occurrences)
Makefile:386: recipe for target 'mArray.cmx' failed
make: *** [mArray.cmx] Error 2
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

There is a bug in .service files for systemd. The "Type=fork" line must be "Type=simple" because the process stay in front.
And is a good idea add "TimeoutSec=300" for provide a reasonable time for startup and shutdown... ;)

updated. next I'll provide a systemd service file

I updated sks to version 1.1.3 and got it to build:

Note that I didn't test this so you should double check my work.

The package needs to updated to SKS version 1.1.3 by 1 August 2012 for continued participation in the keyservers pool, per Kristian Fiskerstrand, 24 June 2012. The current source may be found at (it is no longer on Google Code) and the cryptokit stuff will need to be fixed for it to work.

its currently a hakish PKGBUILD...but it seems to work.

mortzu commented on 2011-07-30 12:50

should be hopefully fixed.

I get the following error when building sks:

mortzu commented on 2011-04-07 19:55

done. thanks

korobkov commented on 2011-04-06 21:19

Thanks for PKGBUILD.
Please, add `mkdir /var/spool/sks && chown sks:sks /var/spool/sks` to install script.
This directory is required for reconcillation (SKS stores dif files there).
