Hi, is there a reason why arm is not in arch=(i686 x86_64) ? On my armv7h cubietruck i am able to build and use bareos.

Fixed Cephfs broken build. I did not see this issue since I didn't have the lib for cephfs installed and autotools did not try to build with cephfs.

@bsdice FYI: I have updated the PKGBUILD quite a bit, I made it more ArchLinux way of doing stuff, rather than a hacking script. You don't need those CPPFLAGS for openssl anymore.

As a temp fix, see sed line below to disable.

    build() {
    cd "${srcdir}/${pkgname}"

    # Disable cephfs, broken
    sed -i 's/have_cephfs=\"yes\"/have_cephfs=\"no\"/' configure

    CPPFLAGS+=" -I/usr/include/openssl-1.0" \
    LDFLAGS+=" -L/usr/lib/openssl-1.0" \
    DISTNAME="systemd" \
    ./configure \

Any way around to not compilie ceph in bareos-common ?

cephfs-fd.c:470:97: error: cannot convert 'stat' to 'ceph_statx' for argument '4' to 'int ceph_readdirplus_r(ceph_mount_info, ceph_dir_result, dirent*, ceph_st

It's an open bug report here:

I have upgraded the package to 17.2.4rc2.

Several things have changed, hopefully all for the better.

  • openssl 1.1 is now supported, fixes all ssl issues

  • I moved config files to /usr/share/bareos/config to prevent pacnew files being created whenever you upgraded. bsdice suggested this idea.

  • Moved to the systemd script included with bareos.

  • I am actually correctly managing the package rather than using my script that used the debian paths. This means binaries have moved from /sbin to /bin to fit with ArchLinux.

  • Tested bareos-webui works with arch package jansson, community doesn't seeem to be required.

I have successfully upgraded my database and machines from 16.2 to 17.2. Some manual work was required.


  • Fix some namcap warnings.

  • Move some required dependencies to optional.

Guys, if you don't have community/jansson installed, the webui will not work. It will claim that you need to "upgrade" to an older version.

IMHO, this should be included as a dependency.

My build with my PKGBUILD has this:

# ldd /usr/bin/bconsole
... => /usr/lib/ (0x00007feafbafd000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007feafb688000)

Not tested though because I only use localhost.

Nope, still no openssl support on Arch (due to openssl 1.1 :(

(ldd on the bconsole binary should have both libssl and libcrypto)

Regarding your side-note: the Bareos project is active, they just have fewer releases in the open source version that the commercial version (I run both).

A new version is probably out within a month, most likely called 17.2.

I work at a danish Bareos partner company, so I know for sure :)

I have been bugging them for an official Arch build, but they have not had the ressources to set it up yet.. (it should be doable as they run their infrastructure on Suse Opn Build Service (OBS).

Is the SSL working? I currently use a hacked build to have it working in the current aur-version...

spradlim commented on 2017-08-29 19:30

@bsdice, Thanks
I agree that determining the package layout based on the debian files is wrong. I don't have a lot of time to maintain the package and the author of bareos has moved/renamed files between releases. Rather than the aur package breaking after every upgrade this "hack" allowed it to keep working. However, this package does not follow "arch" standards. A lot of what you list such as sbins binaries are installed in the incorrect places or indirect results of depending on this debian file layout.

Maybe if I get some time and am less lazy,I will move away from that, its more work to maintain as the bareos author changes stuff around.

A side note:
It appears like bareos isn't very active anymore. I was thinking about looking at bacula.
