@zerodef What is it that you are implying?

There's a patch for the /usr/sbin/woeusb: line 1676: echo: write error: Invalid argument problem linked to at

Although a commit was pushed upstream a month ago with a patch to fix this, and an update to the PKGBUILD to include it, this was never pushed to the AUR. When doing so, pkgrel needs to be updated to 2. The PKGBUILD was modified on github adding the patch but left pkgrel as 1.

/usr/bin/woeusb: line 1676: echo: write error: Invalid argument

1676 echo 0 > /proc/sys/vm/dirty_background_bytes 1677 echo 0 > /proc/sys/vm/dirty_bytes

Even as root on the command line I cannot write 0 to dirty_background_bytes, not even using systctl. Maybe 0 is a really an invalid argument for that variable on 4.19.55-2-lts.

sysctl -w vm.dirty_background_bytes=0

sysctl: setting key "vm.dirty_background_bytes": Invalid argument

@LinBuoRen, thanks for the heads-up. I will update the package by then :-).

I would like to inform you that we are planning to refactor the entire project and will, starting from 2019/1/1(UTC+8), cloning/transferring the repository to the newly created organization. The planning and discussions are held on Issue #209[1].

@greencopper automake and autoconf are both in the base-devel group, which is assumed to be installed when building packages from the AUR. They should not be included in makedeps.

Please update the dependency list with "automake" for aclocal and "autoconf" for autoreconf.

why does this need grub?
