hi user00265,

a split-build is not possible, a seperate package has to be created, if you are interested i can create a pkg?

Is there any way this package could either get support for, or have a split-build for, libsphinxclient? I currently modified the PKGBUILD to just install it as part of the package, but I feel this might be either a different package or split-build.

thx for the hint, i compared the install hook with those from mariadb and apache and decided now to change it in a slightly different way

Both groupadd and useradd in sphinx.install should use the --system parameter so the sphinx user is created correctly.

Maybe add --shell /usr/bin/nologin as well?

uhm good question, i am not able to find the source for the search executable. I remember that i tried it once 1 year ago and got some troubles with the command line tools. Maybe they removed it now

IMO it is better to test it by mysql client:
-> mysql -P 9306 -h

For SphinxSE you should try workbench or another mysql client of your choice.

Hi there. I installed this, but it seems to be missing the "search" command. All the articles I read mention this command for console searching. Is there a reason it's missing? How do I get it?

i updated the source and commented the user and group "sphinx" params, i think systemd user is sufficient for the daemon

Is the service file correct? It claims it failed to start but it's running just fine. Should it be set to simple or some other service type?
