@flamusdiu - here's full output. Looks like everything goes fine right up until "install."

If there's another way you want me to get output, let me know.

I would not use IPv6 with the VPN. To my knowledge it doesn't work properly. See:

I would disable IPv6 and then do the tests and let me know. See:

@flamusdiu I looked into these links you provided me and They still cause dns and ipv6 to leak. The weird thing is I'm two websites and the first one tells me it's leaking but the second one which is link provided by pia says i'm not. I'm not sure what to do here.

@finch: Here's my output when I install it:

I am using "--cleanbuild --force" to ensure the build process is new and because I already have it installed. It appears to not be able to reach some URL but the out put doesn't say. Can you post the whole build process for me?

@flamusdiu: Apologies if I'm misunderstanding. I ran 'git clone' to download the package first, then cd to the new directory. From there, I ran 'makepkg -sri' to attempt to install.

@flinch: what command did you do for the install?

Hello! New arch install, running openbox with NetworkManager. When I try to install this particular package, I wind up with this error:

I've triple checked dependencies and have also installed python-pia.git just in case. That didn't seem to make a difference either way. I haven't been able to find much relevant info on this particular issue, either on the internet at large or the wiki related to this package. I have previously (about 6-8 months ago) installed this with no issues on 2 other machines with similar configurations. Any help would be appreciated.

@flamusdiu, I will keep that in mind. Thanks for your help and thanks for taking the time maintaining this package! Good work! :-)

flamusdiu commented on 2017-02-16 18:47

It's good you got it worked out. Just a note: '/etc/opnevpn/pia.conf' doesn't do anything. 'pia.conf' lives in '/etc/private-internet-access/' folder.

Cavsfan commented on 2017-02-16 17:17

That fixed it. Thank you. I had to change it to 1197 from UDP/1197 in both /etc/openvpn/pia.conf and /etc/private-internet-access/pia.conf? I changed it in /etc/openvpn/pia.conf, rebooted and it still didn't work. Then I changed it in the /etc/private-internet-access/pia.conf file and it worked without rebooting.
