@jethrogb Sorry, somehow forgot about this. I fixed the package, no version bump required. Just try again now.

The patch is now at

There is a problem with the PKGBUILD file when only tcp_wrappers-libs is being installed. It rapidly fails with the following error:
==> Starting prepare()...
/tmp/yaourt-tmp-ademers/aur-tcp_wrappers-libs/./PKGBUILD: line 25: cd: /tmp/yaourt-tmp-ademers/aur-tcp_wrappers-libs/src/tcp_wrappers-libs_7.6: No such file or directory
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in prepare().

The reason is simple to understand when we look at the culprit line:
cd $srcdir/${pkgname}_${pkgver}

Here, since we are building tcp_wrappers-libs, the pkgname is not "tcp_wrappers" as it should, but it is replace by "tcp_wrappers-libs". If we look at the lib32 version of this package, we see that "tcp_wrappers" was hardcoded in the path under prepare(). So, in the current PKGBUILD, line 25 should be replaced by the following:
cd $srcdir/${pkgbase}_${pkgver}

There's nothing wrong, no need to flag.

The upstream URL is non-reacable.

I agree with Kernald... I just compiled this on an ARM device, no problems whatsoever.

How do we get ARM as officially supported?

Wow! 563 votes, why does this pkg not adopted by any TU?

fukawi2 commented on 2013-06-04 01:51

Please update PKGBUILD to install binaries to /usr/bin instead of /usr/sbin in line with recent changes:

Builds fine and runs fine on arm, which can be added to supported architectures.

Gentoo is using a Debian patchset in tcp_wrappers. I don't no if that is better or what but maybe you wanna to take a look.

Built using yaourt today, no error.

khampf commented on 2011-10-03 09:20

Build using yaourt and also using "makepkg" produces error.
install -o root -g root -m 0755 shared/ /tmp/yaourt-tmp-core/aur-tcp_wrappers/pkg/usr/lib/
install: invalid group `root'
make: *** [install-lib] Error 1
