Hi all,

There are several errors in package tiacx-firmware which make it unable to be built (due to new pacman/makepkg release ?) :

[20:29 chicha % tiacx-firmware]$ makepkg -c
==> ERROR: tiacx-firmware is not available for the 'i686' architecture.
Note that many packages may need a line added to their PKGBUILD
such as arch=('i686').

I added arch=('i686') to PKGBUILD and I have another error :

[20:31 chicha % tiacx-firmware]$ makepkg -c
==> Entering fakeroot environment
==> Making package: tiacx-firmware 1-2 (samedi 19 mai 2007, 20:32:14 (UTC+0200))

I also opened a bug about tiacx package (unstable) : http://bugs.archlinux.org/task/7084

I am not sure if those 2 packages are still maintained or if the developer is very busy with other package much more important (certainly the case) ? Anyway feel free to put those 2 packages in the AUR if you do not have time to maintain them, I will be please to take care of them ...

This task depends upon

Looks like the firmware is now in http://acx100.erley.org/fw/.

Once it'll be fixed, I'll build the x86_64 package (I guess these drivers also work on x86_64).
