This Package is up to date.
But the the last release is long time ago.
I have pushed a winusb-git package, which provides an up to date version.

I was receiving the following error when attempting to build:

/usr/bin/ld: warning: libwebkitgtk-1.0.so.0, needed by /usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu/5.3.0/../../../../lib/libwx_gtk2u_webview-3.0.so, not found (try using -rpath or -rpath-link)

Fixed it by grabbing 'webkitgtk2' from [extra]. This may need to be a dependency.

I haven't tried using WinUSB to create EFI images, but in order for it to properly create a BIOS image on an EFI machine, you need the following 2 patches:

winusb gives me the error “cannot move file to a subdirectory of itself”.

In script /usr/bin/winusb, it wants to rename "BOOT" to "boot", but FAT is case-insensitive and so it is the same directory. The fix is to change the line

if [ -d "$partitionMountPath/BOOT" ]; then mv "$partitionMountPath/BOOT" "$partitionMountPath/boot"; fi
if [ -d "$partitionMountPath/Boot" ]; then mv "$partitionMountPath/Boot" "$partitionMountPath/boot"; fi

to the following:

if [ -d "$partitionMountPath/BOOT" ]; then mv "$partitionMountPath/BOOT" "$partitionMountPath/boot_" && mv "$partitionMountPath/boot_" "$partitionMountPath/boot"; fi
if [ -d "$partitionMountPath/BOOT" ]; then mv "$partitionMountPath/Boot" "$partitionMountPath/Boot_" && mv "$partitionMountPath/Boot_" "$partitionMountPath/boot"; fi

Also, efibootmgr should be added as a dependency.

new tar.xz archive here:
http://www86.zippyshare.com/v/vSrM7ke2/file.html

just install with "pacman -U" or extract and install with "makepkg -s"

Here's an updated PKGBUILD with a working source file:
http://archive.re/view/24f445bd

All I did was pick another mirror from http://www.filewatcher.com/m/winusb-1.0.11.tar.gz.566128-0.html and the hash still matches. It should work until the package is updated :)

Forget it...

The file is not a valid .tar.gz! They corrupted it!

ftp://ftp.ntua.gr/pub/linux/pclinuxos/pclinuxos/srpms/SRPMS.pclos/winusb-1.0.11-2pclos2015.src.rpm

Can this be useful as alternative source? I'll check it...

Frugalware updated the package...

They added this patch, too...

@zer0rest: the problem is on your side I'm afraid. I don't have any problem retrieving the tarball and the MD5 sums match.
However, it seems that g++ cannot build it anymore so it requires a patch (ENOTIME for this now but I can have a look at it later).

patch should be added as a dependency. I was getting a "bash: patch: command not found" when trying to install winusb. Installed and seems to work after I installed patch.

tech4david commented on 2015-09-06 07:53
pankid this should now be fixed.

The sourcefile is no good -- it will build if you use this mirror
