net-tools and wireless_tools aren't the same thing, as far as I can tell. Both seem to be quite well depended on, as well.

Yes, quite a few packages still depend on it but it is officially deprecated since 2011.

Thanks for bringing this up.
wireless_tools seems deprecated? If you check, plenty of mainstream packages rely on it. Also, --with_iwlib is considered one of the default building flags for xmobar (as in, who wouldn't want it), but you can always edit the PKGBUILD and remove it if you want.

bo0ts commented on 2013-02-04 17:51

Is the dependency on the deprecated wireless_tools really necessary? Building with wireless support has to be explicitly enabled with --with_iwlib so it shouldn't be.

Updated! The problem with this was that the old PKGBUILD was trying to build with the all_extensions flag. `haskell-alsa-mixer` has finicky deps, which made the whole process not very pleasant.

Now you can choose (more freely) what extensions you want to build with by editing the PKGBUILD before building. If building with aura:

sudo aura -A xmobar-git --hotedit

...will do the trick. Everything else is explained in the PKGBUILD itself. Enjoy!

I have taken over maintenance of this package.

Orphaning it as I'm switching to dzen2.

haskell-time is currently not available from AUR, which makes the
whole PKG tricky to use. Would it be possible to provide it as well or
is this package only intended to build with [haskell] enabled?

cgirard commented on 2012-10-12 13:51

Waiting haskell-vector updated to update this.
In the meantime, this may work (untested):

YES! Builds like a dream. I had to hack my way to the moon last week to get this to build. Thanks a ton!

Also... want a Haskell-based package manager?
