This package fails to compile for me:

It seems that PKGBUILD sets invalid permissions for data directory and configuration file:

After trousers installation and running of tcsd.service:

$ pacman -Qkk 2>&1 1<&- | grep trousers
warning: trousers: /etc/tcsd.conf (UID mismatch)
warning: trousers: /etc/tcsd.conf (GID mismatch)
warning: trousers: /etc/tcsd.conf (Permissions mismatch)
warning: trousers: /var/lib/tpm (UID mismatch)
warning: trousers: /var/lib/tpm (GID mismatch)

No problems here.

I'm getting a validity error on trousers-0.3.14.tar.gz when attempting to install this package.

C compiler cannot create executables

Thanks djgera!

djgera commented on 2017-05-27 22:47

I made some changes to this package, please apply it. Thanks.

* Remove install file and use sysusers/tmpfiles.
* Trigger udev from install does not look good practice.
* Avoid user/group/chmod/chown creation at build time (Debian Patch).
* Extract source in correct directory.

So it looks like the previous release of 0.3.14 had a bunch of files that weren't properly updated. For example, the ChangeLog had no mention of 0.3.14. The updated files were to correct this.

I really find the lack of care shown by upstream to be quite shocking, especially given that trousers is security-sensitive software. This is the second time they have retroactively updated their released source files. I hope that they will either be more careful going forward or that someone will write a new TCG software stack to take its place.
