I adapted the Debian scripts to make Prax run on Arch Linux.

I would like to automate the whole installation, but that involves spending more time on it than I can currently invest in this. Therefore I opted to do the next best thing I could come up with: I wrote a small readme file to describe where every file should go and how it all ties together.

Quite a lot of work here. A PKGBUILD would be great, but I understand you don't have time.

Could you escape the *.dev in the README so it's not parsed as an emphasis by markdown? then squash your commits into a single one?

This would be great. I've got prax running on Arch now and have been meaning to switch to prax.cr

@ysbaddaden yes, will do :-)

@adamcrown do you happen to know how to make PKGBUILD files? I've never done it but I'll probably try to make one anyway. It might take a while though.

BTW I added the prax iptables command to avoid duplicating the rules for each distribution.

@ysbaddaden I never have written a PKGBUILD. I'd be happy to take a stab at it but I'm a bit busy now so it may take me a while to get to.

@ysbaddaden I squashed my commits and escaped the asterisks.

I decided I am going to try to make a PKGBUILD but I cannot seem to find the prax iptables command you mentioned... where should I look?

@adamcrown since you specifically mentioned it: This branch of my PKGBUILD-repo will probably make it really easy for you to switch to prax.cr on Arch. I'm using it myself right now.

Thanks for packaging Prax for Archlinux!

I see there are some manual steps required? Could they be somewhat automated to the beat solution?

@ysbaddaden They can be automated, it would be really easy for the iptables-service, but as far as I know only Debian will start services right after their installation (and Debian-derived distros). Arch users supposedly like to be able to tweak config files before they are started. It's simply a different philosophy.
