Recent openssl-1.0 update to 1.0.2.k-3 version broke acestreamengine (error "version 1.0.0 not found" or smth. when trying to start engine). There are two possible workarounds:
1) Downgrade openssl-1.0 to 1.0.2.k-2 version and lock package update (put to ignore).
2) Other way, download openssl-1.0 1.0.2.k-2 package http://ala.seblu.net/packages/o/openssl-1.0/openssl-1.0-1.0.2.k-2-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz and manually unpack libcrypto.so.1.0.0 and libssl.so.1.0.0 files trom the package to /opt/acestream/lib/acestreamengine/, then acestreamengine will use these older libraries instead of system ones.

The 2 versions installs differently too, so it was extra complexity with I did not want for something I was not going to use. Now you have the i686 aur package so hope everyone is happy now:)

@an7oine Thanks!

I think the big difference between those two packages is not the architecture.
The version is different, x86_64 will be updated, unmantained 3.0.2 version for x86, is working now, but nobody can say how long it will and it won't be update anymore.
If we are going to use the same aur package for both version you'll see 3.1.16 version when you've 3.0.2 version, instead. You'll get upgrade notifications, when you've anything to update because your version will be always the same.

Just my opinion, as you can see i'm not the package mantainer! If you decide to merge the packages, it's not a real problem!

Here it is: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/acestream-engine-i686/
Having two distinct packages for the same software, separated only by architecture, is still, in my view, silly.

Well, i think you should see the difference between two packages. In my opinion the best to do is to create a separated aur package for x86 only, with 3.0.2 version

Their latest available version for i686 is still there: http://dl.acestream.org/ubuntu/14/acestream_3.0.2_ubuntu_14.04_i686.tar.gz . Since that does still work against the Ace servers, I wouldn't say that they have dropped support for it. Why not reference those binaries here, rather than force them into a separate '-i686' package?

Hopefully someone will fork Arch to retain i686 compatibility. -It seems that's been done already.

correct, and Arch in also dropping i686 support in november…

thepasto commented on 2017-04-13 13:33

AFAIK upstream has already dropped x86 support for linux, as you can see here http://wiki.acestream.org/wiki/index.php/Download there's no x86 linux release available anymore.

an7oine commented on 2017-04-13 05:26

Don't know about you guys, but I'm not running Arch on exactly the latest and greatest hardware. Please don't drop i686 unless the upstream drops it for good.

Updated to 3.1.16 with @thepasto changes, dropped i686.
Open for co-Maintainers…
