Doh! I knew I was missing something obvious. I was comparing it to the autoreconf.patch but that file is in the root so it didn't need the -p0. Thanks :)

Patch added to pkgrel -4

you need to use the following line to apply that patch:

patch -p0 < "$srcdir"/restore-rmdir.patch"

Without '-p0' option, patch looks for restore.c file in current directory. By providing -p0 option, you tell patch to use full path to restore.c (restore/restore.c).

Given that this could lead to data loss, I'm inclined to apply the patch, however I appear to be doing something stupid and the patch will not apply?

I've added this command to the PKGBUILD: patch < "$srcdir"/restore-rmdir.patch

A bug in restore in version 0.43 and 0.44 prevents recovery of incremental backups when a directory is deleted. A patch is given by a user in the notes on the bug report:

Debian is using that fix, can't find any other distro patching it though.

Thanks, PKGBUILD updated.

Build dep pkgconfig is replaced by pkg-config.

Done and done. Also added some missing build deps.

Or if it's really still useful (and incompatible with tar's rmt), turn it into a split package? I doubt it's worth the trouble though.

ghen commented on 2014-08-01 11:31

Not sure how compatible both rmt implementations are (BSD vs. GNU), however I doubt many people are still using it anyway...

The simplest solution is probably to just rebuild dump without it, simply add --disable-rmt.
