@yochananmarqos thanks for the hint! i'm trying to build this package little by little in my spare time. complexity isn't really a problem, as long as you won't get bored (lol)

@DuckSoft: Here's a revised build dependency list with the base-devel group packages removed and a few more you missed:

libxpm net-tools bzip2 wget vim samba dos2unix lib32-glibc lib32-mpfr lib32-zlib rsync autogen lib32-gettext sdl libpciaccess libusb freetype2 gnu-free-fonts qemu virt-manager vte3 fuse2 gnu-efi-libs libiscsi grub zip nasm acpica

Not found:

networkmanager-bluetooth

brlapi

Maybe?

ttf-dejavu

There's also dietlibc, exfat-utils and squashfs-tools if you look at the source tarballs he links.

I haven't really had time to attempt to build this yet, it's a big mess.

Command to rsync the ISOs I found on Reddit:

rsync *.iso /run/media/$USER/ventoy/ --progress -ah

The author have committed the build script. https://github.com/ventoy/Ventoy/issues/131 @DuckSoft @jsamr

Alright, let's merge this. Merge req is sent. Awaiting official triage.

jsamr commented on 2020-05-19 00:42

@DuckSoft Please rename this to ventoy-bin.

Also, I have security concerns about this program. It pops out of nowhere, the authors are unknown (the Github user has no prior activity, no info in the website either), no build instructions, the .exe binary has been spotted as malware by different anti-viruses (take a look at multiple reports in their issue tracker), the git repository is a mess with a lot of shipped / modified binaries.

I would recommend the community to wait for a transparency endeavor on the developers side, and even better a security audit from an independent team. Don't install untrusted code on a USB key!

EDIT: A lot of the concerns can be lifted now, see Manjaro packager comments here: https://forum.manjaro.org/t/community-ventoy-compile-from-source/143714

@duckSoft you should just rename the package (I belive that it is acualy make a new one with the right name and request a merge) then let someone else make the compiled version

@springzfx I don't know. You know, https://github.com/ventoy/Ventoy/issues/131

springzfx commented on 2020-05-18 14:27

This should directly compiled form source code in PKGBUILD, otherwise please rename it to ventoy-bin
