add arm to pkgbuild?

Postby weseikin » Thu Feb 13, 2020 4:08 pm

im running arch arm and hitting many packages from the aur with not available for arm.
my question is:
is it safe to edit pkgbuild and add arm to architecture?
or should i just pass the -A option to makepkg?
I understand that if i install package Liteblue with -A option it might or might not work, ill just have to -Rns if it doesnt work.. correct?
thank you before hand..

You can certainly try. Where's the harm?

But you need to add the correct arm arch, eg 'armv5tel' 'armv6h' 'armv7h' 'aarch64' (or all of them as it will use the correct one).
