I get an error with the checksum of the archive

The e2fsprogs conflict was fixed on the git version of this package. I will fix it here as well shortly.

Leads to errors in installation as it does not conflict with systemd-sysvcompat.

Should only depend on glibc

namcap tells in clean chroot build that procps-ng is not needed as dep.

Thanks for the update. killall5 works and bootlogd is present

@x33a It's very strange, I did not have the desired.

procps-ng=3.3.9 added the command `pidof` which as alreadly provided by sysvinit-tools, therefore procps-ng as marked as providing (even it was only partially providing) and conflicting with sysvinit-tools. sysvinit=2.88-13 required sysvinit-tools, (installed from the same source as sysvinit) so sysvinit now instead requires procps-ng>=3.3.9 to get `pidof` and the split of sysvinit and sysvinit-tools have been removed; without marking sysvinit as providing sysvinit-tools because that would case an unresolvable conflict.

@ mdevaev This package provides all the utilities present in your package, as well, without conflicting with procps-ng.

mdevaev commented on 2013-12-18 12:03 (UTC)

Sysvinit-tools package has been removed from the repository and some utilites such as killall5 missing in procps-ng. I have a package that provides them without conflict with procps-ng.

To fix make error caused by 'crypt' just do ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/libcrypt.a

It has now been patch for the /usr/bin merge

ConnorBehan commented on 2013-06-12 04:13 (UTC)

This package might install everything into /usr/bin but there are multiple sbins hardcoded into the source. You have to either write a patch for that or make sure that you don't reboot in between updating this package and finishing the /usr/bin upgrade.

arch=('i386' 'x86_64') should be arch=('i686' 'x86_64')

So it has finally happened. AUR kept refusing upload of 'sysvinit' over and over for the past few months. In case anyone here needs them, old SysV init scripts:

To avoid upgrade problems due to the coming move of /bin, /sbin , /usr/sbin to /usr/bin this package needs to install the files in /usr/bin instead of /sbin . See
