  • Status changed from unconfirmed to confirmed

Thanks a lot for the information.

Ghidra is a java application and Arch Linux usually doesn't build java packages from sources.

I'll remove it for now and I'll then move this bugreport as a request for packaging ghidra properly.

There is also a lot of work needed for properly packaging Java applications in Parabola. We still have log4j if I recall well.

Updated by GNUtoo 25 days ago

  • Status changed from confirmed to open
  • Subject changed from [ghidra] Various freedom and technical issues to Add back ghidra (was: [ghidra] Various freedom and technical issues)
  • Tracker changed from Freedom Issue to Packaging Request

ghidra is now blacklisted.

So to add it back, someone needs to send a PKGBUILD (or a patch that adds that PKGBUILD) to build it from source.

It will probably require packaging its dependencies as well.
