@balwierz Thanks, I just pushed the patch along with some others to fix building. To follow the git master, we'd need to make a ocfs2-tools-git package.

Build fails with glibc 2.28 (currently in Arch) Upstream has already fixed it in this trivial patch

I can see it was already fixed in September:
Can you use the github master?

Build problems:
1) needs ncurses libraries to link with. I installed ncurses-full-git and it helped.
2) gcc error during compilation

1.8.5 release with fix for Makefile

Thermi commented on 2017-04-25 07:01

Why are you so hostile?
I did not find this or any git repository when I looked for the source two years ago, so I obviously had to import into my own git repository, so it can be pulled. I thought upstream was *dead*.

That the source URL points to the master branch is a moot point, because it's my repository and I didn't have an upstream when I did this, nor was there (or could there) be any development happen in my git repository (because there's nobody else with write access to it than me and I don't do any development on the tools).

1.8.5 doesn't build cleanly, because there's (obviously) a problem with the Makefile. I opened an issue about it here:

The current working status of the PKGBUILD is here:

Upstream url for the git contain tag so latest tag that represent a version is 1.8.5 you for the contraire are taking the master as a tarbal, whis is done in -git packaging.

please fix it or dissown so other can properly fix it.

EDIT: thake the propper version and now do it correctly.
