@batGnat Can you please report that upstream and link us the issue here?

@teekay I am currently updating the PKGBUILD. I try to orientate on the official snapper package. The configure command especially disables some things like ext4 support. Are there any reasons for that or does the new version possibly disables this by default? I'd rather stick to the official PKGBUILD if there are no specific reasons. Otherwise we could also patch the official PKGBUILD.

@Reventlov: this is a -git package. The compile error is an upstream issue, but that doesn't qualify for flagging it out-of-date. Unflagged.

Heads up! From post_upgrade(): ---- BIG FAT WARNING: the snapper-git package now uses systemd .timer units instead of cron scripts! If you use timelined snapshots, you need to manually enable and start the timer units with: # systemctl enable snapper-cleanup.timer # systemctl enable snapper-timeline.timer # systemctl start snapper-cleanup.timer # systemctl start snapper-timeline.timer ---- For the rationale behind this step see

@erikw: libtool is part of the base-devel group. From the AUR User Guidelines: "Warning: Packages in the AUR assume the base-devel group is installed, and AUR packages will not list members of this group as dependencies even if the package cannot be built without them..." Otherwhise we also would have to add gcc, make, automake etc etc to every package, too.

Please add package "libtool" to the dependencies as libtoolize(1) is needed to build the package.

Heh, ok. Anyways, I fixed the conf.d vs. sysconfig location in the man pages.
