this hasnt seen any work in the last 2 yrs so it has probably gone out of whack with newest openssl package.

bastelfreak commented on 2016-11-11 13:37

okay not really sure why this fails

Please add armv7h to the list of supported architectures.

This is failing to build for me. ./configure complains about not finding libevent. Installing it fixes things. Please add libevent to the list of dependencies.

Sent an email, but it's delayed or something. I think the tlsdate.service file doesn't quite work. I need to change
ExecStart=/usr/bin/tlsdated ${TLSDATED_OPTS}
ExecStart=/usr/bin/tlsdated $TLSDATED_OPTS
or else it sends either a blank argument to tlsdated (causing an error) or combines all of the arguments into a single argument (also an error).

PKGBUILD is broken, looks like it's half way to being changed
everything else references the versioned folder, package() references the (non-existent) tlsdate-master
< #cd "$srcdir/$pkgname-$pkgname-$pkgver"
< cd "$srcdir/tlsdate-master"
> cd "$srcdir/$pkgname-$pkgname-$pkgver"
> #cd "$srcdir/tlsdate-master"

It doesn't make sense to me to build the package by downloading a zip file from Github when pacman has built in VCS support ( I think making up the version number "0.0.11" is going to cause confusion and make updating a pain. Since there are official releases and a Git repository, it would make more sense for this package to be the latest official release, and for there to be a tlsdate-git package which builds the latest version from Git. I'd be happy to maintain tlsdate-git if this plan sounds good to you.

Also, please add the flag --without-polarssl to ./configure; it looks like there are some issues building tlsdate with the newest polarssl. The dependency is listed as openssl anyway.

This package produces an error in systemd's shadow.service:

user 'tlsdate': directory '/home/tlsdate' does not exist

Please set an existing directory as home when creating the user, e.g. to the root directory.

A fixed .install file can be found here:

does running the daemon with systemd on 0.0.7 work for you?

EtiennePerot commented on 2014-02-02 08:26

Again, please update to 0.0.7:
Also, you may want to add 'armv7h' and 'armv7l' to the list of architectures. I can confirm that it builds fine on them.

EtiennePerot commented on 2014-01-12 02:16

Please update to 0.0.7.

skydrome commented on 2013-02-28 04:32

I've added that to the pkgbuild, thanks.

EtiennePerot commented on 2013-02-28 03:56

Also, could you either add `--with-unpriv-user=tlsdate`, or change `--with-unpriv-group=tlsdate` to `--with-unpriv-group=nobody`? Otherwise it doesn't work, because it tries dropping to the user `nobody` and checks if it has the same group as the one specified with `--with-unpriv-group`, which currently is `tlsdate`. `nobody` is not in the group `tlsdate`, so the program says: "GID for `nobody' is not `tlsdate' as expected, refusing to run SSL".

EtiennePerot commented on 2013-02-28 03:46

Could you add armv6l to the list of supported architectures? It works fine.
