@anatolik: sysfs-efivars (efivars kernel module, /sys/firmware/efi/vars) has been completely disabled in core/linux-3.11 . Please use https://github.com/fpmurphy/Various/tree/master/uefivars-2.0 .

Well uefivars at-one-go lists all possible things about the variables it can parse, but efivar is a more generic utility where you can make it show all info of a particular variable, one at a time. More info about uefivars is at http://blog.fpmurphy.com/2010/01/accessing-uefi-global-variables-from-user-space-in-fedora-12.html . If you want the kind of data parsing and display uefivars gives, then i suggest sticking to it. If not, change over to efivar-git.

Could you please check it for sure http://sourceforge.net/p/uefivars/code/ci/master/tree/src/uefivars/uefivars.c If efivar does it plus more then I vote for merging uefivars-git into efivar-git (+ updating Arch wiki)

AFAIK the only thing uefivars ever does is it lists all the uefi variables in the system (something similar to "ls -1 /sys/firmware/efi/vars"). efivar-git also supports listing the contents of an individual variable.

If efivar-git covers all feature of uefivars-git then this package should be removed and WikiArch should be updated to efivar-git. Otherwise I would like to fix the package so people would keep using it.

I suggest using https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/efivar-git/ (efivar -l) over uefivars-git as the former support listing from both /sys/firmware/efi/efivars (efivarfs) and /sys/firmware/efi/vars , and it also provides option to display data of a particular variable (efivar -p <guid-name>).

Hi, This package installs binary into /usr/sbin/ instead it should install it into /usr/bin https://mailman.archlinux.org/pipermail/arch-dev-public/2012-March/022625.html
