@ellypsis - See official PKGBUILD. I believe to allow for compatibility for others using it, it is a required at build time.

gdm is optional, but marked as makedepends in PKGBUILD, so I need to edit it on every update because I don't use it. Is it possible to update?

Definitely works on the Raspberry Pi 3 (Arch Linux ARM, updated PKGBUILD arch w/ no GDM).

Ah, ok, thanks for clarification

I believe without gdm as a makedep, the login screen switching option is not compiled in. I see that extra/xscreensaver also keeps this as a makedep. Feel free to remove prior to building.

Why GDM is a makedepend here? It is not really needed, I just compiled it with no gdm, and it works.

No idea what you're talking about... Installed size of this package is 28.18 MiB per pacman -Qi

Torxed commented on 2016-06-10 09:58

How on earth can this take up 271.99MiB whilst xscreensaver itself only takes up 29.93? Assuming just default xorg-server, xorg-xinit?
