I want to use arch with sysvinit. As stated in Arch wiki, I downloaded and extracted sysvinit and initscripts-fork. I makepkg'd sysvinit with success, but afterwards initscripts-fork makepkg fails with the claim that dependency sysvinit is missing.

How does makepkg check dependency existence? How can I make it see the install (or better still, do you know other practical ways to use arch with sysvinit)?

  • By default, makepkg only builds, but not installs a package. You either have to use makepkg -i or install the .pkg.tar.xz file afterwards with pacman -U (wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Makepkg#Usage). – Wieland Oct 1 '16 at 10:53
