@codyps would you like to take over maintenance of this package?

codyps commented on 2016-12-09 19:02

Here's a patch to update this to & use bsdtar.

It also adds a broken dkms package for the kernel module now shipped in the package. Build fails due to kernel incompatibilities.

You should use bsdtar to extract the rpm files instead of the useless rpmextract wrapper.

Updated. Sorry this took me so long.

Here's the full working PKGBUILD instead of patches:

The most interesting of the patches is #2 -- as it turns out, the makepkg script was stripping the binaries of symbols by default before creating the package, changing the checksum of `/usr/local/ibm/gsk8_64/lib64/N/icc/icclib/` which failed a signature test. By adding `options=(!strip)`, this feature was disabled and the client can be used normally.

I can confirm A, B (partially, it seems to hang on 'checking agent portnumber' for me) and C, but unfortunately, running a backup via the command line still results in an error:

$ sudo dsmc incr -ve

I've sent you the summary of what has been tried so far. Let me know if I can help with any more details about my system, etc.
