python3-aur now includes the module AUR.PkgList and a script named aurpkglist to provide a full list of packages in the AUR.


pkg_scripts now contains a script 2 new scripts.


pkg-busybox_recovery should provide a minimalist way to get pacman working on a broken system if busybox is already installed. A working Arch Linux system is required to generate the scripts that should be passed to busybox. pkg-busybox_recovery was inspired by this thread on the Arch Linux forum.


As requested by karol, I'll try to remember to post news items when I add things to the site. 2014 has been slow and I've lost the habit.

Btw, hi karol. ;)

Happy hollijollidays! holly jolly Arch Linux

New Signing Key

I have recently changed my TU signing key. I am now using the new key to sign files on this site.

Key File
ID 8F173680
Fingerprint EC3C BE7F 607D 11E6 6314 9E81 1D1F 0DC7 8F17 3680

The old key has not been compromised but residual signatures will be replaced as the signed files are updated. See the main page of the site for details.

hexgrep is a command-line tool for searching for byte sequences in binary data. The tool implements its own simplified query language that supports inequalities and wild cards. Values may be given in decimal, hexadecimal or octal format, and the formats may be freely mixed. Multibyte values are supported and their byte translation can be controlled with the endianness flag.

Pending Migration

I have just been informed by Dusty (the site's generous host) that there is a pending server migration and that outages may be expected. If the site disappears sometime in the coming days or weeks, it should only be temporary. Keep an eye on the Arch Linux forum for updates and eventual mirror announcements.
