i edited the sed command in my last comment, to make ncpfs module more compatible... i was not completely sure of the benefits of IOCTL_LOCKING so i have let this one sidabled... but feel free to enable it :)

for thos who wonder why they can't connect to novell shares anymore.

Seems like Arch Linux Kernel doesn't get shipped with the ncpfs kernel module anymore.

As a small workarout here is a command log i used to compile the module manually... when i got the time, i'll try to make it a AUR. But as this would be my first AUR i don't know if it will realy work.

---------------- command log -------------------
# pacaur -S xmlto abs base-devel
# ABSROOT=. abs core/linux
# cd core/linux
# gpg --recv-key 79BE3E4300411886 # Linus Torvalds key
# gpg --recv-key 38DBBDC86092693E # Greg Kroah-Hartman key
# makepkg -o #download, extract, prep but don't build
# cd src/linux-4.9
# cp /usr/lib/modules/`uname -r`/build/Module.symvers .
# make fs/ncpfs/
# make modules SUBDIRS=fs/ncpfs
# sudo make modules_install SUBDIRS=fs/ncpfs

reboot or modprobe ncpfs manually

Uploaded 2.2.6-10: trailing chars removed and usr/sbin moved to usr/bin

@izmntuk: Which files are conflicting with core/filesystem ?

izmntuk commented on 2014-10-07 13:25

Hello, please add `--sbindir=/usr/bin` to the ./configure line. Packages should not put binaries into `/usr/sbin` since Arch fininshed the usr merge. Otherwise when installing this package with core/filesystem at the same time, pacman will report `error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)`[1]
- and, there are some trailing spaces in the PKGBUILD, please remove them :)

Package adopted and added my last suggestion. Any problems, please let me know.

rafaelff commented on 2014-04-03 14:33

Here is a suggestion of PKGBUILD: mtab patch (as suggested by dresb) and split patches and compilation in 'prepare' and 'build' functions, as recommended in PKGBUILD(5). Also moved /sbin to /usr/sbin.

'sbin' is currently being installed in /sbin, but should be installed in /usr/sbin. In order to fix this, the following command (before the ./configure) will do the job:
sed -i 's/sbin/$(sbindir)/' sutil/
