@zbito Should be fixed now. Thanks for reporting it!

Build failes:
/usr/bin/ld: src/kmscon-kmscon_module.o: undefined reference to symbol 'dlclose@@GLIBC_2.2.5'
/usr/bin/ld: note: 'dlclose@@GLIBC_2.2.5' is defined in DSO /usr/lib/ so try adding it to the linker command line
/usr/lib/ could not read symbols: Invalid operation
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status

kmscon@.service is now kmsconvt@.service

@swiftgeek You need to add /dev/pts/X to /etc/securetty or remote pam_securetty from /etc/pam.d/login.
pam prevents root logins via /bin/login from all terminals except the ones listed in /etc/securetty. However, PTYs are allocated dynamically so you need to basically list a lot of PTYs in /etc/securetty to make sure it's there. So disabling pam_securetty is probably the better idea.

Also... i have quite a weird issue with /bin/login... it doesn't allow me to login on root, but it's possible to log on other users...

Please use git clone --depth=1

I forgot to add: Use:
to avoid running ./configure automatically. Or use:
$ ./ --prefix=/usr --disable-wlterm
directly. It's up to you.
But the current file calls ./configure twice.

I got slightly behind with kmscon releases but I wanted to get a proper kmscon-6 release that will be backwards-compatible. It's out now, sorry for breaking some ./configure options. I also pushed a "kmscon" PKGBUILD but feel free to contact me if you want to take it over (I spotted a message that you are planning to maintain it as TU).

Some suggestions:
- remove "xproto", "gtk-doc" from makedepends, they're no longer needed
- add "libxslt", "docbook-xsl" to makedepends to allow building kmscon manpages
- add "systemd" to depends for multi-seat setups, otherwise use --disable-multi-seat
- add "libegl" to depends (it's needed if the drm video backend is used)
- install the license header as suggested by AUR guidelines:
mkdir -p "$pkgdir/usr/share/licenses/$pkgname/"
cp COPYING "$pkgdir/usr/share/licenses/$pkgname/"

Thanks for maintaning this package and for pushing xkbcommon into [community].
