Hello, I stumbled on this tool while reading the blog post where it was first published and, while I was there, I also discovered within the comments that it was in the AUR.

The original script doesn't support devices larger than 2TiB, so I patched it to do so. This patch actually corrects the problem and reads the device size correctly (unlike the version posted in the comments which just hard-codes a big number).

I have pushed my working copy containing my patch to GitHub. You could merge my repo which also contains an updated PKGBUILD (also fixes @willemw comment).

Or you could let me push my changes (is that possible, I don't know?) or orphan it and I'll take it over and push them.

Anyway, hope its of some use to people.

Seeker is a binary (compiled) package: "arch" should be "arch=('i686' 'x86_64')".

Gcc is in base-devel: gcc should not be listed in makedepends (or depends).
