Hi, thx a lot for maintaining this package !

I stumbled over the recent update of core/nettle, since this has bumped a shared object library ({6.5,7.0}), causing aria2c to fail at runtime. However, rebuilding aria2-fast against nettle 3.5.1 solves the issue.

Maybe you could increase the pkgrel to indicate that a rebuild is necessary when a user updates their system ?

Cheers !

@DDoSolitary, sorry, should be fixed

Build failing, please update md5sums for aria2-fast.patch

aria2 1.26.1 is out, plus the git source link is not updated to aria2/aria2.
Please fix this <3

@pandada8 I've fixed it, I was blocking the multicast port so I've opened it in the firewall. Thanks!!

@pandada8 thanks I'll try.

pandada8 commented on 2016-01-10 04:57

@ryansito no problem here
BTW, this patch would not let the test fail, try rebuild or build the original "aria2" package to see if any test failed

Won't build for me with a check error.

Fails compilation (surprise, surprise):

If you have the time go in to whatever directory it was being built and in the cool testsuite file that has such explicit detail you see this:


03/30 06:15:15 [DEBUG] priority=999999 url=http://base/dir/example.ext
.................Exception: [] errorCode=20 Could not parse Metalink XML document.

.Exception: [] errorCode=20 Could not parse Metalink XML document.

Test name: aria2::LpdMessageReceiverTest::testReceiveMessage

- Expression: rcv.init("")

Failures !!!
Run: 972 Failure total: 2 Failures: 1 Errors: 1


So what XML document are we looking for that needs to be parsed (not familiar with any website calling itself "base")? Who knows must be a magic one that appears at random depending on whether you scratched your ass before compiling.

Maybe it's trying to reach an external site? Might be kinda hard if you ignore my proxy settings, yes http_ and https_ have been set for half a year now. Funny this compiled no problem the first time under these same exact conditions (machine config not changed).

I'm lovin it!
