No, 'which' is in base-devel.

This should get "which" added into depends=(...).

Does anyone else experience that ntpd goes crazy in cpu usage, when hostsblock is applied?

jav209 commented on 2015-05-19 13:20

@rpodgorny Thanks. Do feel free to make a git version. I'll probably work a bit more on optimizing the packaging leading up to 1.0 stable.

rpodgorny commented on 2015-05-19 12:59

ah, ok. i suggest adding some git tags, then, and linking to gzipped file in pkgbuild. also, having a hostsblock-git pkgbuild would be nice. if you're not going to create one, i'll take care of that.

thanks for the hostsblock!

@rpodgorny I'm quite sure (I'm the original author). I'm in the process of getting rid of the homepage and just using the github page instead.

rpodgorny commented on 2015-05-17 23:55

are you sure the version is correct? the home page lists 0.12.3 as the latest.
