I've adopted the package and am working on it, stay tuned

EDIT: So, flood still seems kind of a mess to package but I've tried to make it as as sane as possible. It's only been tested lightly so some issues might be lurking around. I couldn't get any to show up though.

The build fails on ARM when you use nodejs aka v11. This needs to use nodejs-lts-dubnium (v10 LTS)

May be nodejs-lts-dubnium should even be a dep for this package ? Did anyone on x86_64 build it with nodejs v11 ??

Build fails without python2 due to some weirdness with how node-gyp detects Python versions. Please add python2 to makedepends.

For Flood being able to move rTorrent downloads, I suggest to override the flood user so it the same user that rTorrent is running under. Let's say it's the seedbox user.


d   /var/lib/flood/server/db    0750    seedbox   seedbox

-  npm install --production
+  npm install
+  npm run build

(Fix included)


Flood now fails to start after recent upstream updates (installation completes successfully):

# systemctl status flood.service

My research has led me here;

It seems npm has removed the --production flag, & so we need to "run build" manually.

We need to update the PKGBUILD like this:

-  npm install --production
+  npm install
+  npm run build

I've compiled this updated PKGBUILD locally & have successfully got Flood running.

Thank you

@XG_SiNGH see

arshlinux commented on 2017-05-23 22:33

No, plus this whole thing of a flood user set by the package is very wrong, I believe Flood cannot be packaged yet, as the configuration is by design merged into the Javascript source code...

Firstly; thank you for submitting & maintaining this AUR package ^_^


Secondly; I see we're installing to /srv/flood. I note that all my other AUR things are in /opt/<stuff>
(e.g. sabnzbd, couchpotato, jdownloader, google chrome, ums (universal-media-server), pycharm-professional, trelby, vagrant, etc

Shall we opt to use /opt? :P

(even though I guess /srv may be more correct, I think I'd prefer FLOOD to be installed alongside everything else in /opt)

Your thoughts?

Thank you
