why was the symlink to /snap reintroduced that violaes the FHS strongly and populates / with a rediculous directory? It has been changed for a reason and just because of --classic its still a bad idea to add. Please drop it again.

PS: install scripts doing systemd start/stop/reload things are not what one would call "the arch way"

@precrisk interesting thought. I'm afraid we're missing a larger bunch of dependencies, snapd-glib and snapd-qt to start with. Off the top of my head, there's also snap backend for gnome-software. You would end up rebuilding 2-3 packages at least. No promises at this point, but I can try a look into at least packaging the pluggable backends.

OTOH it'd be much easier if snapd was in 'community'.

Hey, can you please build the snap backend for kde discover please. for the following reasons - 1. it helps me manage both flatpak and snap from single software. 2. also the snap backend for discover 5.12 is considered stable, thats why it is included in kde neon for this release. 3. it probably will never be included in official repos because snapd itseld is not available in official repos.

i wish i could but i dont know enough about snapd (they are heck lot complicated), hence your help.

Built and installed. Thanks for very quick response! :-)

@vlatkoB i've pushed an update just now. Can you try to build it?

bboozzoo commented on 2018-02-08 15:03

Yeah, turns out Go released 1.9.4 with a fix for CVE-2018-6574 which also broke quite some code everywhere. I'll see if I can push a fix soon.

It was installed (2.3.2-2) and I reinstalled it. Same error

Getting this error on installing: go build invalid pkg-config package name: --static

Can you install libseccomp and try building again? There's a missing dependency in the current PKGBUILD. We should be updating it soon though.

According to the Arch packaging guidelines, I removed non-x86_64 architectures from the PKGBUILD. Use makepkg -A to override this check.
