So, I decided to update package to the newest woeusb version which doesn't have gui anymore. If anybody needs the old gui version I created https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/woeusbgui/ package.

@MrHritik

Your problem is a known issue that is fixed already, please update to WoeUSB >=5.1.3.

@MrHritik, probably your desktop environment mounts an NTFS partition right after creation by WoeUSB which causes an error. If you are using KDE, go to settings and uncheck auto-mounting of storage devices (or enable "only mount devices that have been previously manually mounted").

I'm getting ERROR: The command "dd if="${download_directory}/uefi-ntfs.img" of="${uefi_ntfs_partition}"" failed with exit status "1", program is prematurely aborted with --tgt-fs NTFS, although it's working with FAT. Full log: http://0x0.st/-nxP.txt

Hello, @LinBuoRen, this is great update! I've pushed the new version to the repo. Thanks for informing.

Hello, your friendly WoeUSB upstream maintainer passing by!

We would like to inform you that WoeUSB 5.1.0 has just released, featuring the ability to prepare a FAT32 target filesystem drive from source images that ship over 4GiB WIM archives(essentially all recent Windows 10 ISOs).

Refer to https://github.com/WoeUSB/WoeUSB/releases/tag/v5.1.0 for more info.

Note that this version has a new wimlib runtime dependency, which (should) be satisfiable by the wimlib package.

Cheers!

@colorfulsing there is a problem with new woeusb repository. The woeusb gui has been separated from the command line program. The https://github.com/WoeUSB/WoeUSB repository contains only cli tool and is being updated. But frontend for woeusb is no longer maintained. Currently this package contains both cli and gui. If I switch to a new repository, then there will be no more gui for woeusb because in 5.0.1 version they dropped support for gui wrapper and added a breaking changes. So updating to latest version of woeusb will remove gui and I am not sure if I need to make this change.

Hi guys, it seems that the WoeUSB repository has been migrated to https://github.com/WoeUSB/WoeUSB and it's current version is 5.0.4 by the time of writing this comment.

More info can be found at the old repo README.md file https://github.com/slacka/WoeUSB

@myl7 @Singularity you are right guys, this is my first time maintaining a package, so I didn't know this information. As said in the wiki members of base-devel should not be included as dependencies. I am going to remove them.

myl7 commented on 2021-01-18 17:18 (UTC)

@Singularity You are right... My bad. Thanks for remindation. @sandm As automake and autoconf are in base-devel, removing them from dependencies may make more sense.

Singularity commented on 2021-01-18 17:07 (UTC)

@myl7 Everyone who is using the AUR is expected to have the packages from the base-devel group installed. You should do that, to avoid running into issues, with pacman -S base-devel

sandboiii commented on 2021-01-17 14:25 (UTC)

@myl7 added automake dependency

myl7 commented on 2021-01-16 00:01 (UTC)

May miss build dependency automake.

Without it, when installing the error is:

Can't exec "aclocal": No such file or directory at /usr/share/autoconf/Autom4te/FileUtils.pm line 274.
autoreconf: error: aclocal failed with exit status: 2

The sulotion is from https://github.com/sindresorhus/gulp-imagemin/issues/339.

Install automake and then the installation is fine.

Thank you, @benjumanji! I tried to make package without autoconf and it failed, so I added autoconf as dependency.

benjumanji commented on 2021-01-12 20:13 (UTC)

Missing dependency on autoconf.
