samba is not a make dependency. I did not know this feature:

"Dependencies defined inside the package() function are only required to run the software."

It is the relation between samba and wsdd2.

Is 'samba' also a makedepends?

marcosfrm commented on 2021-08-21 20:01 (UTC)

samba is a runtime dep, please put it in depends=().

marcosfrm commented on 2021-08-16 23:17 (UTC)

In package() use just:

  cd "${srcdir}/${pkgname}-${pkgver}"
  make install SBINDIR=/usr/bin DESTDIR="${pkgdir}"

Since wsdd2.service has BindsTo=smb.service it requires Samba, otherwise will not start. Hence, depends=(samba) is nice to have...

@fryfrog Yes both packages do the same things, while wsdd2 has LLMNR support and a few more options. The other notable difference is that wsdd is written in python, while wsdd2 is a C program.

I also have to add that wsdd2 was taken from Netgears ReadyNASOS and until recently has seen very little changes/fixes since 2017. There has been some bigger rewrites/fixes from Volodymyr Prodan and those where merged recently via v1.8.5.

So i consider the wsdd/python version a more active project, while wsdd2 can be used as-is, but might not see any changes going forward.

Also works perfectly well on a Raspberry Pi archlinux installation if that's of any interest - after adding armv7h to arch= in PKGBUILD, of course.

It would also be reasonable to just take and modify the .service file and include it as a file, like most other packages.

usually if something needs patching you would use a patch file. its simply less error prone.

@dianlujitao, thanks for the suggestions. Have a look at the updated PKGBUILD and tell me what you think.

MoetaYuko commented on 2020-10-28 15:02 (UTC)

wsdd2.service needs to be patched because smbd.service is called smb.service on arch

adding the following function fixes the issue:

prepare() {
    cd "$srcdir/${pkgname}-${pkgver}"
    sed -i s/smbd/smb/ wsdd2.service

btw please use install instead of cp to copy the executables.
