I tried again, downloading through the mirrors UK and US, but both failed, leading to error #901.

Are you familiar with the new AUR concept, I try to switch from yaourt to powerpill and bauerbill. These wrappers are looking for a git under which is not existing...

The package that is from the astrill website is broken, Will have to revert it to the 2.9.3 version, I have emailed astrill support re: this issue but have not received a response.

my email is:
If you could send me an email and tell me, what to do as an maintenance officer... (sounds hyperimportant), it would be great, I'm interested!

latest update:
In Germany it worked for a few minutes like a charm, that's why I wrote my last euphoric comment. Now I'm back in China, login has a "connection time out", later my old friend

Astrill Error #901:
Your Astrill Installation is damaged. Please download Installer from and reinstall the program.

appears again.

I just want to cry!

I'll test and submit change. Still looking for a new maintenence officer :)

tellmi commented on 2016-08-14 07:10

Good news!

I'd just like to tell you, if you alter the PKGBUILD with these changes, the installation works:

I changed "url", "source", x86_64's "rpmpkg" and "md5sums".

Don't forget to run

sudo /usr/local/Astrill/astrill

after installation!

Here's the complete script:

# Maintainer: yair reshef <>
# Contributor: piojo, jediofthecode

pkgdesc="VPN configuration tool for Astrill's servers"
arch=('x86_64' 'i686')
if [ "${CARCH}" = 'x86_64' ]; then

package() {
mv "${srcdir}/usr" "${pkgdir}"

Hey guys ! Sorry for the long delay in response, Been super busy with work. I am taking a look at this and it seems the package that astrill themselved is providing is broken. I am testing out various different methods and will update ASAP!

Dear maintainers!

Since a while I have that problem:

Astrill Error #901:
Your Astrill Installation is damaged. Please download Installer from and reinstall the program.

Asking Astrill Support team I recentlöy got that answer:
Hi tellmi,

Does your system modify binaries in any way ? For example it strips binaries during installation ?

We check if our software is modified and prevent it to run. It can be modified by a virus for example.

Best regards,
Astrill Development

So I'm forwarding this question to you, but after checking PCKGBUILD I guess, it's only unzipping the downloaded RPM and rezipping to an Arch Package. There's high unlikely a virus responsible.

Did you ever meet that error and do you have an idea, how to solve that?

kind regards


tellmi commented on 2016-08-05 09:08

you have to run

sudo /usr/local/Astrill/astrill

first and exit.
Afterwards you should be able to start it as a normal user.

But I still have "Error#901". Does anyone have an idea?

Okay so I finally installed it. However I get this error now:

ASProxy component has insufficient privilege. Please reinstall the program.

Anyone know whats wrong here?

tellmi commented on 2016-07-12 13:34

1) download that file manually, eg.
2) open the target folder in your terminal
3) md5sum astrill-setup-linux64-3.2.rpm (or however the downloaded file is named)
-> you'll get a hash sum like this:
b833e6b006686101d444831eb8c2f276 astrill-setup-linux64-3.2.rpm
4) copy that hash sum
5) yaourt -S astrill
6) edit the PCKBUILD with nano
7) find the line

if [ "${CARCH}" = 'x86_64' ]; then

and change the md5sums to the new value (b833e6b006686101d444831eb8c2f276)

Now it should work! But for me it stops later with that error message:

Missing Package-Metadata in/tmp/yaourt-tmp-xxxx/PKGDEST.gSi/astrill-setup-linux64-3.2.rpm

Any ideas to solve that problem?

CSYates_98 commented on 2016-07-12 01:46

Whenever I try to install it it tells me that validating the source files with md5sums failed. Any pointers?

tellmi commented on 2016-07-07 14:34

Does anyone else gets this weird error message:

Astrill Error #901:
Your Astrill Installation is damaged. Please download Installer from and reinstall the program.

I just followed the PCKBUILD. I even restarted the computer, deleted the settings in my home folder and reentered the login data. Still the same.

Could anyone give me a hint, please?


yair commented on 2016-04-18 13:35

ill probably re-try with this.

build() {
cd ${srcdir}
rm -Rf *
msg "Connecting to GIT server ..."
git clone $_gitroot
cd $_gitname
make -f Makefile

package() {
cd $srcdir/$_gitname
mkdir -p $pkgdir/usr/bin
install -m a+rx mx5500 $pkgdir/usr/bin/

yair commented on 2016-03-28 08:06

packge() section is wrong, it should probebly invoke install into /opt

yair commented on 2016-01-17 13:47

megahertz, can this be fixed in pkgbuild?

megahertz commented on 2016-01-17 12:44

kumazemi, you need to run Astrill as a root for the first time.

kumazemi commented on 2015-10-23 23:03

Fails to start with a message "ASComponent does not have the necessary permissions. Please reinstall the package."
