Archlinux package is broken, /sbin is deprecated

Seems like the package for archlinux is broken. The package manger will refuse to install binaries outside of bin, and will not follow symbolic links. I searched the forum recommending to use the --force option, but this option has also been deprecated in favor of the --overwrite flag, which does not resolve the issue with your packaging. Can we get an updated package, please?

Hi,

Yes, the arch package has been updated and works well on Arch linux. Not sure about the Manjaro. We'll setup an environment and test the installer.

I managed to get it working: opened the package with Archive manager and deleted /usr/sbin - after that package installed without a problem. However i also had to install libidn11 package before the daemon would start. But i am disappointed there is no hardware sensor monitoring for Linux as this is the main feature i was looking for.

Hi,

Thanks for sharing your experience. Currently the hardware monitoring via SNMP is available only from the Pulseway agent for Windows, however we will consider the possibility to introduce this functionality into the future release.
