@spock According to the wiki article about creating packages, makepkg is intended to be non-interactive (

With the privous posts changes you could remove HAVE_SSL, WITH_DVBAPI etc. and let people select whatever options they want.

I'm not much of a programmer though, I just try to fix bugs occasionally. I haven't read up on PKGBUILD guidelines so maybe it's not an allowed change for a PKGBUILD.

There are more stuff that could be added at compile time too by interactive choices, such as some patches.

If you add this to PKGBUILD (after msg "SVN checkout done or server timeout")

sleep 2
cd "$srcdir/oscam"
cd "$srcdir"

Allows configuration before build.

I've been thinking that oscam might need some different PKGBUILDs, as it comes with quite a few choices at compile time. Sure we can just edit the PKGBUILD, and maybe thats even preferred. But for PCSC readers for example we would need -DHAVE_PCSC=1, or as with SSL, libusb, etc. for some it's not really needed. Or we could just build one binary that has it all, as we have more or less unlimited space on x86 machines, maybe that's better?

So since this is for x86 hardware usually we have enough space to include it all, but oscam lets us choose by ourselves since the STBs usually don't have much free space, and since not many people needs libusb, pcsc or even ssl support it leaves the choice to the user.

Another option would be to add some interactivity to the PKGBUILD so we could choose at build time what options we want (do PKGBUILD guidelines allow that?).

I would be happy to leave things as it is, but the temptation of more or less automated builds having all the necessary build options are always there. :)

Could you add -DWITH_SSL to the build (tired of manually editing it :)? And also for the rc.d script restart function add sleep 2 or atleast 1 between stop and start or it will usually fail to restart.

PKGBUILD needs the following changes:
