From what I can gather in discussions on both the Debian mailing lists and the alsa-utils upstream lists, this should be handled by patching alsa-utils upstream. There is an upstream patch under review for alsa-utils, but they haven't yet reached consensus on the new name for their /usr/bin/bat.

I don't think it would be proper to rename this package's binary because alsa-utils is likely to change their name in the near future and going back and forth would cause confusion. In the meantime, feel free to apply ekitch's patch to PKGBUILD as a temporary workaround. That said, I am also unsure what Arch's policy is on situations like this.

EDIT: alsa-utils 1.1.0-2 has been released that fixes the name conflict. This comment is left here for historical reasons.

the file name conflict between bacula-bat-7.4.0-1 and alsa-utils-1.1.0-1 still exists.
I've created a patch that install bacula's bat as /usr/bin/bacula-bat.

Remove parentheses from install statements:
install=("bacula.install") => install="bacula.install"
Add parentheses to provides and replaces:
provides="${pkgbase}-dir-mysql" => provides=("${pkgbase}-dir-mysql")
replaces="${pkgbase}-dir-mysql" => replaces=("${pkgbase}-dir-mysql")

Now it will work...

Though about testing it if it's worth deploying...
unforunately it fails install right at the beginning no mather if I say yes or no to:
Install only bacula-bat ? [Y/n]
==> -------------------------------
==> ERROR: install should not be an array
==> ERROR: install should not be an array
==> ERROR: install should not be an array
==> ERROR: install should not be an array

==> ERROR: provides should be an array
==> ERROR: replaces should be an array
==> ERROR: install should not be an array
==> ERROR: install should not be an array
==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build bacula.

Thats always the result...

The current PKGBUILD doesn't create the working directory if only bacula-common, bacula-console and bacula-fd will be installed.

With release of core package alsa-utils-1.1.0-1, there is a name conflict for /usr/bin/bat (i.e. the bacula administration tool). I'm passing along this info in case AUR packages must be modified to avoid conflicts with core packages.

Since I'm actively using this in production, I may as well maintain it.

* Updated to 7.2.0
* /var/log/bacula is now created by the package
* Hostname in config files is now generated at package install time
* Removed tcp_wrappers support, since tcp_wrappers hasn't been in Arch for some time, and I'm not sure anyone is actually using it.

FYI, I'm disowning these packages as I moved on to Bareos.

I tested disaster recovery with the new 7.2.0 version yesterday. It worked with some fiddling around. Just to document it here, there are some more or less minor glitches with the packaging:

* /var/log/bacula is not created by the packages, this causes the start of the director to fail.
* /etc/bacula/scripts is not readable for user postgres. Thus database scripts cannot be executed properly. I think it would it be OK to have /etc/bacula and children world readable as long as the config files are only readable by root (clear text passwords).
* Generated config files are in the package, i.e. static. They should be generated at package installation to have unique passwords and proper hostname.

If anybody wants to fix the PKGBUILD, go ahead. I probably won't find the time to do it myself.

I created an updated PKGBUILD for bacula 7.2.0 with additional minor fixes.

Diff against the old PKGBUILD to see the changes.
