It seems that Prey also requires the package wireless_tools as it was not able to connect to their servers without iwlist.

Dear all, sadly I don't have much time to maintain this right now, so I'm orphaning it. If noone picks it up, I might myself at some later point, but no promises.

NiNjA's workaround seems to work... or maybe upstream fixed the issue they had! IDK

Can you add lsb-release as dependency (or optional)? The setup gui can't detect distro without it.

I also noticed the commented out provides line in the PKGBUILD. Now that the bash client is renamed, maybe uncomment it/add a conflict?

Thank you for maintaining this package.

It apparently helped to upgrade the linus nodejs package. I issued the following commands as root and now it seems to work as expected:

cd /opt/prey-node-client/node_modules
npm install linus

I also tried installing prey from source and hit the same error when trying to configure this. This appears to be an upstream problem and I've contacted them about it.

Experiencing same issue as daboka below. I checked and /etc/issue exists. It was rw for root only at first (which should have worked fine, as I was running the config using sudo). Expanded the permissions to give everyone read-write, no help.

Credentials verified.

Sorry for not responding, I've been away for a few days, tried the new PKGBUILD and also the one from JP-Ellis (looking back on logs applying the patch with the original didn't happen for me either), and still got the same error

/etc/issue does exist it's contents are the following:
Arch Linux \r (\l)

JP-Ellis commented on 2015-02-04 07:32

In addition to daboka and mattlyons' issues, the PKGBUILD was not working properly for me. In particular, the patch command could not find the appropriate patch. I have done a couple of modifications to the PKGBUILD and moved the preparatory steps into a `prepare()` function and left the installation steps to the `package()` function. The updated PKGBUILD can be seen over at https://gist.github.com/JP-Ellis/6a78c438128218c179a7.

warning: directory ownership differs on /opt/prey-node-client/node_modules/which/bin/
filesystem: 996:994 package: 0:0

When upgrading just now. I don't think the directory perms should be marked as 0 in the package.
I think this applies to everything in /opt/prey-node-client/
