anyway it's my second time using manjaro first time on the forums and a long time linux user, pgl usually installed no problem a couple years ago however when I tried manjaro this time around I hit this snag and I'm not sure what to do! I know peerguardian helps me out a lot when it comes to computer security. any help is appreciated!

Do you have all of the listed depends/makedepends installed?

And, you saw this, right?

Might be time to move on...

the list of dependencies can be found here https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/pgl-git/ so I double checked everything and I have all the dependencies installed

true I would move on however whenever i ask seems no one recommends another ip blocker that imports lists from the web like peerguardian linux does. since using an ip blocker on a day to day basis helps keep my computer free from bad traffic while surfing the web. some of those nsfw sites can be a mind field and connecting to them opens up to a whole slew of unwanted traffic.

Pi-hole?

Pi-holeᴬᵁᴿ?

Pi-hole does a good job blocking by hostname however the lists I use are IP specific. I looked into pi-hole and I think it could be useful as another way to block traffic so thanks for the recommendation.

still at square one with IP blocking however and even though peerguardian is old it's still a favorite.

Edit: I might not have installed all the dependencies as some of them I'm not sure on.
