Now I'm using links from official repositories. I can't get it working with directfb. Feel free to adopt.

directfb is also available in the aur.

I am no longer using archlinux (maybe I will in the future).

So feel free to update the package.

@lks @Duologic

FYI, directfb no longer exists. And directfb-rbp is for x86 only (no 64 bit).

Workaround: Manually download latest directfb from the archive:

Install it: sudo pacman -U directfb-xxxx.pkg.tar.xz

Then install links-g-directfb like you would normally do. I used Yaourt.

Works great. Thank you for making this package :^)

Thank you for your comment, I will update the package to the current version 2.13 (on thursday). But I haven't noticed that the source was down so far. At this time the sources are accessible:

Perhaps, the server was offline during maintenance?

above ./configure

and it builds

I changed the order of the autoconf command and it compiled without error:

./configure --prefix=/usr --enable-graphics --with-ssl --with-fb --with-directfb --enable-javascript --enable-graphics --mandir=/usr/share/man

Refused to compile after complaining about openssl not being installed. Of course openssl is installed (it is even included on the dependencies). Any Idea why?
