Re: [SOLVED] Packages outside from pacman

You don't.

The only way that pacman will know about the software is if you write a PKGBUILD and build it into an Arch package...

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/PKGBUILD
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Ar … Repository

What specific software are you talking about here?

Re: [SOLVED] Packages outside from pacman

I have some issues with vuurmuur(aur). Witch has being flagged out of date. I install it from the official page (source - install script) and is working fine.
But i want to manage it through pacman. And also because the command for uninstall from the official page doesn't work, i have to search and delete manually (with 'locate') all the dirs.

Thank you for your info... very useful..
So now i suppose i have to mark the topic as solved, am i right?

Re: [SOLVED] Packages outside from pacman

You could just have easily updated the AUR PKGBUILD...

You can mark your thread as [Solved] by editing your first post and prepending it to the title.

Re: [SOLVED] Packages outside from pacman

Ok. Can i do something with the updated PKGBUILD so other user can use it too? Or just the maintainer or the package can?

Re: [SOLVED] Packages outside from pacman

You can modify it for your requirements. Only the maintainer can update it on the AUR.

Re: [SOLVED] Packages outside from pacman

You could post the PKGBUILD somewhere and put the link in a comment on the aur page, then maintainer and other viewers can use it.

Re: [SOLVED] Packages outside from pacman

Ok i have modify the PKGBUILD here. But now i got this error

Starting build()...

I suppose it is a missing package to the source, right?

Here is the whole output

@dracorp I just installed vuurmuur using your PKGBUILD on an armv7h Globalscale Mirabox. It works beautifully. If you want to you can safely add armv7h to your list of arch's in your PKGBUILD.

Re: [SOLVED] Packages outside from pacman

Ah ... the problem in post #9 should be blindingly obvious.  What did you expect to happen?  You know already that the PKGBUILD currently in the AUR doesn't work.  And you have a new PKGBUILD that allegedly does.  But your use yaourt (just stop doing that) and the build fails.  Do you expect yaourt to read your mind and magically know you don't want to use the PKGBUILD in the AUR?  Must it also devine the location where you posted your new PKGBUILD?

# yaourt -S vuurmuur                                                                

==> Downloading vuurmuur PKGBUILD from AUR...

As it says, it downloads the PKGBUILD from the AUR.

Side note: why are you running yaourt as root?

However updating the package version and checksum is not enough as there have been upstream changes.
ibvuurmuur.tar.gz vuurmuur.tar.gz vuurmuur_conf.tzr.gz shipped inside the source archive are no longer present.
There is now a top level configure and Makefile.
vuurmuur.logrotate is now under debian (I dropped this).
/var/log/messages is not present in config.conf I dropped the sed expression which replaced it with /var/log/iptables.log .
I changed references to /sbin/ to /usr/bin instead of /usr/sbin .
I could not find the zones directory in the new layout.

Re: [SOLVED] Packages outside from pacman

Sorry - I missed the call to nano in the yaourt output ... that is really a long way about it, but I guess it'd work.

Re: [SOLVED] Packages outside from pacman

Aaand it works like a charm... I have some issues only when i add some external services but i am going to solve it some how.
loqs i paste your PKGBUILD to my pastebin  and add to the vuurmuurAurPage so other people can use it too. If you have a problem with that tell me to delete it.
Thanks again!
