flex and bison are both in base-devel group and core repository. To compile packages from AUR you need base-devel loaded. It does not need to be listed as a dependency unless the package relies on a specific version.

'flex' and 'bison' should be added as "makedepends".

Could you add other platforms :
arch=('i686' 'x86_64' 'armv6h' 'armv7h' 'arm')
Package is compiled and works fine under arm

I noticed bison should be a prerequisite also.

also, when installing the service file with "systemctl enable snort@enp0s18.service" it installs as eth0 anyway

fauno commented on 2015-01-17 17:39

could you add "--pid-path /run --create-pidfile" to the service file? :)
