When running zookeeper via zookeeper@kafka.service, the log directory is not writeable because it is created as "kafka:kafka":
# ls -alh /var/log/zookeeper
total 260K
drwxr-xr-x 1 zookeeper log 56 Jan 22 18:06 .
drwxr-xr-x 1 root root 848 Mar 18 00:00 ..
drwxr-xr-x 1 kafka kafka 26 Dec 20 17:50 zookeeper-kafka
-rw-r--r-- 1 zookeeper zookeeper 260K Feb 1 09:51 zookeeper.log
Of course, that's fixed easily enough, but thought you might want to know.

This package currently doesn't build and install the 'c' libraries included with this package. I was able to make it do that by modifying depends to this,

depends=('java-runtime' 'gcc-libs' 'glibc')

, adding this,


, adding a new build function,

build() {
cd "${srcdir}/${pkgname}-${pkgver}/src/c"
autoreconf -if
./configure --prefix=/usr

, and putting these lines at the end of the package function,

cd src/c
make DESTDIR="$pkgdir" install

For those curious about what happened to 3.4.7

It got pulled because of this bug.

Hi! Ok, thanks :)

Galaux, I added you as a co-omaintainer, because you are clearly on top of this.

Sorry about the delay, I didn't have notifications going to the right email. I have bumped to 3.4.8. How odd what happened to version 3.4.7? Very odd.

Version 3.4.7 is not mentioned in the list of releases [0]. Some download site have it [1] but some don't [2]. Strange inconsistency! I would just way for upstream to fix it. In the meantime, a simple fix on the PKGBUILD should look like this:

- _closest=$(curl "${_apache_cgi}?asjson=1" | tr -d '\n ' | sed -r 's/.*"preferred":"(.+)".*/\1/')
+ _closest=""

There is no zookeeper-3.4.7/zookeeper-3.4.7.tar.gz in the server I get as preferred: ->

I had to change the directory name to "current".

Updated to latest zk.

Apache must have fixed their certificate issue because the HTTPS URL works now.

Also just FYI the asc signature is available here [0] if you want to add it to the PKGBUILD.
