Works on aarch64 too

Works on older Raspberry Pi (armv6h) architecture too by adding 'armv6h' to PKBUILD.

Would you mind adding armv7h to the supported architectures? Simply adding this word to the PKGBUILD makes it work fine on Raspberry Pi

Here's a simple patch to move binary into /usr/bin

I think this package needs to be fixed because of the recent /bin -> /usr/bin move. As suggested in the news post at point 1, I searched for non-official packages with files in /bin, and I got:

$ pacman -Qqo /bin /sbin /usr/sbin | pacman -Qm -

Hello. FYI, no need to gzip the man page. makepkg takes care of it.
Thanks for that neat package.

Excellent, thanks for your answer, I will give it a try.

It's just a different implementation.

Practically speaking, etherwake only runs as root, while wol will work with unprivileged users, except that, in that case, it will use the wrong packet type and most network adapters won't catch the wake up signal.
The worst thing is that wol won't tell you anything about it and I had to find it out by inspecting the packets with wireshark.

A n00b's question: in what way is this app different from community/wol? I'm using the latter and just got aware of etherwake and I'm curious about it.
