Update to 3.2.3

Thanks andreas_baumann, I've updated the note about deps, and the source URL did change slightly ('source_code' became 'source-code')

actually works fine. I was wrong here.

andreas_baumann commented on 2011-10-27 03:40

Tried 3.2.3, compiles.

There are some issues:

The advice to comment out configure options could trouble newbies with messages like:

/media/sd/arch/adapted_packages/cfengine/PKGBUILD: line 33: --with-postgresql: command not found

Better would IMHO be to just add a comment there and not a message: Arch users
should feel comfortable to edit PKGBUILD files anyway.

The source can't be downloaded, but that's a cfengine policy for the community edition. Maybe
here a message would be appropriate and setting the source value in the PKGBUILD as follows:


Just an idea. :-)

Urgh, sorry... Blonde moment. Fixed.

I think 'libmysqlclient' is enough, no need to have the full server as dependency..

Bump to 3.2.0; Thanks andreas_baumann seems to depend on the mysql/postgres libs if you compile with those options, so I've added them as a dep rather than optdep

andreas_baumann commented on 2011-09-09 05:55

Or maybe postgres-libs and mysql, pcre should be optdepends?

andreas_baumann commented on 2011-09-09 05:54

3.2.0 is out.

I put an updated version of PKGBUILD to:

--with-sql I would ommit and add the database connectors --with-postgresql, --with-mysql.
The cfengine people say --with-sql is deprecated. --with-pcre is maybe also a nice thing.
Sadly cfengine has no pluggable module concept for things like database connectors. :-(

The source file can't be downloaded and must be put to the directory containing PKGBUILD before
starting to build.

Latest version listed as a release on the website; should be no problem to downgrade to 3.1.5 by updating pkgver and md5sums()
