Mondo rescue and mindi patched for Arch Linux

Mondo rescue is a disaster recovery tool.
Last year, I wanted to test mondo rescue for the first time, but I found there was no official package and no PKGBUILD  in AUR.
So I had to build one and upload it to AUR. But soon I found there were a lot of problems related to the lack of compatibility with Arch Linux.
I had to deep in the code and made some patches that turned it usable in Arch system.
Mondo version 2.2.9.5-2, and mindi-2.0.7.6-3 are now full compatible with Arch (at least for me).
That's why I'm asking Arch users (if someone interested) to test mondo and mindi PKGBUILD's and give your feedback to help me to improve it.

mondo AUR - http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=38366
mindi AUR - http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=38365
mindi-busybox - http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=38364

Thank's for your feedback.

Re: Mondo rescue and mindi patched for Arch Linux

Hi. Thank's for your files.
I'm just trying to install mondorescue but it seems there's a problem with buffer dependency. There's no buffer-1.19-8.src.rpm file around to download. Any possible way to solve this problem? Thank's, bye.

Re: Mondo rescue and mindi patched for Arch Linux

You are right! The server is down :-(
This server was an alternative I found for the original one that was also down at that time.
Now http://www.hello-penguin.com/software.htm is up again, but I had some problems downloading source code with pacman.
This is a little frustrating when servers are up and down intermittently.
So, I made a mirror in my own server where buffer-1.19.tar.gz can be downloaded too, and uploaded a new version PKBUILD to AUR (http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=38363).
PKGBUILD now downloads source code from this alternative server, but if you wish, you can edit PKGBUILD and chose the original one (in the commented line).

Hope this can be solved now.
