I've just updated this but under a new name of flirc-bin as this is a binary package; the source is not provided. I'll merge this now.

I just downloaded and tested the "Universal Static Package" on my Odroid-C1 running Arch Linux Arm... and it works. I just unpacked and moved over the files. Thought you should know.

There is a "universal package" labelled 1.4.0 but that is for the rpi and 32bit only.

jsteel commented on 2015-02-18 19:59

Holding back the update until the 32 bit version catches up... again.

Thanks for the suggestion, but have you read the man pages provided? They are a work in progress, and can stay in doc until they actually have some information in them worth looking at.

Please consider the following patch for your PKGBUILD. This will move the man-pages into its proper locations and compress them according to Arch Linux standards:

OK I see, yes I think it has always installed to /lib, but maybe pacman saw this as having data in /usr/lib until now. I'll put in the "mv" command to fix this, please try again when I update this shortly.

I've unpacked the package built using your PKGBUILD and it actually contain a file in /lib: /lib/udev/rules.d/51-flirc.rules.

No, I haven't tested 1.3.4 yet. I've found something strange. On a system where I've previously installed from here I can't install it again now. I've installed it in December. This is a different computer than the one I've got the "/lib" error previously. I've removed installed package and tried to install it again but now I also get the same error.

The difference from December is that I've upgraded everything a few days ago and there was a pacman upgrade which also required database upgrade. Maybe PKGBUILD needs to be updated for newer pacman version?

BTW I'm still waiting for previous answers. Jason (the Flirc author) seems to be very busy recently.

Were you installing 1.3.4 before with your lib issue? For some reason the contents of the package have moved /usr/lib to /lib. Any reason for that do you know? Or do I have to put in a mv command? That's a bit messy; what's wrong with /usr/lib?
