Tired of compiling? Use this binary repo instead! Add this at the end of /etc/pacman.conf :

[packages]
Server = http://nhameh.ovh/$repo/$arch
SigLevel = Optional TrustAll

Hello guys, I have adopted this package to make it work with the latest kernel. For my environment it seems to work now, I can get started.

But I cannot guarantee it will work for other environments aswell. If it proves too much work then ill probably end up orphaning these vdo packages aswel. Its just that ... I got it working for me and I just wanted to share my work.

It looks like this package is installing bash completion files into /bash_completion.d/, rather than into /etc/bash_completion.d/ or /usr/share/bash-completion/completions/ as it ought to do.

I took a peek at the makefiles, and it appears that the install rule in vdo-manager/Makefile calls the install program with a destination directory of $(COMPLETIONINSTALLDIR), which in turn is defined as COMPLETIONINSTALLDIR=$(DESTDIR)$(sysconfdir)/bash_completion.d.

The PKGBUILD currently doesn't supply any sysconfdir= value in the make install invocation, so $(sysconfdir) is the empty string, and so we end up with $(COMPLETIONINSTALLDIR) resolving to /bash_completion.d.

The simplest fix is to add sysconfdir=/etc to the make install invocation. That at least gets the files installed to /etc/bash_completion.d/.

Probably even better would be to add an extra fixup to relocate those files over to /usr/share/bash-completion/completions/, as from my observations that appears to be where completion files from system packages are ideally meant to go. (Similar to how e.g. /usr/lib/udev/rules.d/ is for udev files provided by the system and /etc/udev/rules.d/ is for udev files or overrides created by the user.)
