Sorry about that, should have double checked.

Checksums don't match after update to 0.4-2.

Yes, skip checking resolves issue.

Makepkg.conf only affects the building process. In fact, lots of pacman core/extra/community packages are built with sha256 checksums.
Additionally, i can build the package on a system with the default INTEGRITY_CHECK=(md5). I'm not sure where it goes wrong on your side but it's not makepkg.conf.

You can, however, always edit the PKGBUILD while installing to read {md5,sha256,...}sums=('SKIP') to avoid this issue.

that information seems either outdated or wrong. i can build the package on a system with the default INTEGRITY_CHECK=(md5). I am not convinced that i am at fault here but i'll keep an eye on it.

It seems if you use SHA-2 checksum (such a sha256sums) you need tell for users:

"To enable use of SHA-2 checksums, set up the INTEGRITY_CHECK option in /etc/makepkg.conf"

Or just use md5

i just updated the source tarball again but yeah, the sha256sum stayed the same but maybe it does the trick for you as it did for elandx 2 months ago.

the checksum is f6e4bceed9becb28576474f336934369651c037997b4f18d4faf89dac0865915

No, I couldn't update package. I went as follows - remove package, cleanup cache and tried to install it again. And again I got the same error - Validating source files with sha256sum. Now I don't have even old version. Though of course, I could just grab the source from Gist and use them. But your package .. you are confident. that it works not only at your pc? : )

Thanks for the feedback but please try to include the failing checksum next time.
You probably were unlucky and tried to install awmtt when i had just pushed the update to github and the AUR yesterday around 14:11. A good bet in those cases is to clear your cache (wherever your AUR helper built the package, typically /tmp) and try again a little bit later.
For what it's worth, i usually build the package on 2 seperate machines to make sure it builds and runs correctly. Since the sha256 matches, i'm going to assume it builds fine for everyone else.
