Hi all,

I tried Grubber's WIP, managed to install it. There were 5 dependencies that had to be installed via yaourt as pacman didn't found them in repos.
Also, dependencies which were needed to be installed via yaourt required changes to BUILD files due to newer versions needed, download URLs needed to be fixed and hashes changed accordingly and had dependencies of their own to tackle. At the end, all dependencies installed and FreeIPA, latest version installed.

Sorry for not giving more details, it's 2AM, and I didn't keep the track of what packages needed changes but the install process takes you through and is clear of what packages/BUILD files need to be installed/reconfigured.

When I get the time to configure IPA and test, will send more comments.

Here's a WIP to try:

@grubber 4.2 has been out for a while, is there any ETA? I was planning on having FreeIPA on Arch, but if there's no PKGBUILD in sight I'd have a look on creating one, or otherwise host a VM instead.

Well, I didn't do much maintaining so far, I was rather busy working on upstream. Once 4.2 is out (should be in a few days), I will look into porting it to Arch.

@grubber any idea if you're going to continue maintaining it?

@grubber: Great. Looking forward to some freeipa action in arch!

grubber: Absolutely! Feel free to use whatever you think might help.

I'm adopting the package. I'm upstream FreeIPA developer (

chenxiaolong, can I use your work as a base for upstream Arch support?

chenxiaolong commented on 2015-01-02 06:14

I've disowned this package. I'm finding I don't quite have the experience to package this and keep it working well.

I won't upload it to the AUR (because it needs python-yubico, which isn't packaged yet), but anyone is free to use my FreeIPA 4.1.2 packaging as a base:

FreeIPA is already 4.0.3, might be better supported now?
