This thread is meant to be an information for the Manjaro-Team in case of outdated Manjaro packages in the community repository.

Please feel free and drop a line if you notice a package that is in need of an update.

Please do not report packages as out-of-date if they are up-to-date in the unstable or testing branches. There is normally a one- to two-week delay for packages to reach the stable branch.

I have sometimes crashes with aMule on Manajro Xfce Testing.

Reporting one of those crashes led the discussion to this:

Me: Manjaro / Arch provided a new(er) version of aMule 10958 (17th September)

Admin: That’s almost 2.3.2… Why not that?
Admin: 10960 is identical to 2.3.2 except that it identifies itself as a
development version. The real 2.3.2 release tarball can be found on SourceForge.

So please add the actual aMule release into the repos or AUR.

Thanks in advance

dropbox from community repository seems unmantained from July, looking at AUR page for dropbox package it appears that there were many releases in the last few months.
Anyway dropbox has the bad habit to update by itself, so everyone should have the last version installed.

At some point we would need to switch to generic bspwm.

tcp_wrappers/tcp-wrappers/libwrap situation
I’ve noticed that there are two version of tcp wrappers but before today it wasn’t a problem,
here there is what I found:

tcp_wrappers v=7.6-16
needed by ‘lib32-tcp_wrappers’ 'steam-manjaro’
https://github.com/manjaro/packages-community/blob/master/tcp_wrappers (link is right?)

source=(ftp://ftp.porcupine.org/pub/security/tcp_wrappers_${pkgver}.tar.gz
http://archlinux-stuff.googlecode.com/files/tcp-wrappers-${pkgver}%2B.patch.gz
hosts.allow
hosts.deny)

Some of the files installed, provide libwrap but don’t declare it in PKGBUILD

[…]
/usr/lib/libwrap.a
/usr/lib/libwrap.so
/usr/lib/libwrap.so.0
/usr/lib/libwrap.so.0.7.6
[…]

tcp-wrappers v=7.6.24-3
https://www.archlinux.org/packages/community/x86_64/tcp-wrappers/
seems a split package
pkgname=(‘libwrap’ ‘tcp-wrappers’)

source=(“ftp://ftp.porcupine.org/pub/security/tcp_wrappers_${pkgver%.}.tar.gz"
"http://http.debian.net/debian/pool/main/t/tcp-wrappers/tcp-wrappers_${pkgver%.
}.q-${pkgver##*.}.debian.tar.xz”
‘tcp-wrappers-headers.patch’
‘tcp-wrappers-redhat-bug11881.patch’
‘hosts.allow’
‘hosts.deny’)

  • tcp_wrappers is needed by steam-manjaro, provide libwrap but don’t declare it

  • tcp-wrappers from Arch seems a split pkg with libwrap, with different patches

  • last revision of ginkgo-cadx [AUR] add libwrap as dependency, so there are conflicts like ‘$filename exist in filesystem’ or removing Steam (not a problem for me since I can edit it’s pkgbuild)

  • https://github.com/manjaro/packages-community/blob/master/tcp_wrappers fails to build

curl: (22) The requested URL returned error: 404 Not Found
==> ERRORE: Impossibile scaricare http://archlinux-stuff.googlecode.com/files/tcp-wrappers-7.6%2B.patch.gz

A possible solution cloud be adding

provides=(‘tcp_wrappers’ ‘libwrap’)

to tcp_wrappers pkgbuild but fails to build

Also the license need an update, seems a BSD style license
ftp://ftp.porcupine.org/pub/security/tcp_wrappers_license
license=(‘custom:TCP Wrappers license’)

Edit 1
found the patch, same md5sum
https://storage.googleapis.com/google-code-archive-downloads/v2/code.google.com/archlinux-stuff/tcp-wrappers-7.6+.patch.gz

Edit 2
Also https://github.com/manjaro/packages-multilib/tree/master/lib32-tcp_wrappers use the same patch

If you are running x86_64, you need the lib32 opt depends for your driver - check that mhwd has it correctly set
If you are having problems with the steam license, remove .steam and .local/share/Steam
Library issues can be fixed with the Steam (Purge Libraries) launcher

It’s gone well, Steam and ginkgo-cadx are both ok

However lib32-tcp_wrappers and lib32-libwrap conflicts on filesystem like 64bit versions did before

Adding this to lib32-tcp_wrappers pkgbuild should be ok?

provides=(‘lib32-tcp_wrappers-libs’ ‘lib32-libwrap’)
conflicts=(‘lib32-tcp_wrappers-libs’ ‘lib32-libwrap’)

https://github.com/FabioLolix/packages-multilib/blob/master/lib32-tcp_wrappers/PKGBUILD

see https://git.archlinux.org/svntogit/community.git/tree/trunk/PKGBUILD?h=packages/lib32-libwrap

For curoisity why we can’t use Arch upstream version of tcp-wrappers/lib32-libwrap?
There is a problem with the patches they’re using?

i suggest to only UPDATE packages mentioned in this topic.

about half a year ago, phil has asked about which packages we can remove from the manjaro repos, because there is a lot of clutter, which got collected over the years.
so, please do not add any unnecessary packages (or even remove such packages). rather tell people to ask in the rest of the forum how to fix a PKGBUILD from the AUR, for example in this category: https://forum.manjaro.org/c/technical-issues-and-assistance/aur
