@Svenstaro: It was a thought as temporary workaround, because stable versions usually build from the archives and don't require downloading all the history. But it is somewhat different here and git is anyway a makedepend, so cloning the repo is probably a better solution. I will change it.

If you need the git hash, why not just get the actual git hash from upstream by cloning the git repo instead of using the zip? Then you don't need to workaround and also you'll get the proper hash in the binary.

At the moment this can’t be installed due to issues with nwjs-bin.

@Jake: Confirmed! Works fine now (again)!

Thank you! :)

Yes, i found that the issue came with the nwjs update to 0.42.4, where they enabled NW2 per default:

Added a flag to disable it in the start script now, that should fix it, please install the new pkrel and let me know if it works @neo2001.

I've just removed the package I previously build manually and reinstalled/rebuild the package using Octopi. All seemed fine, but now both yellow round buttons are greyed out all the time. I can still access the firmware flashing interface by selecting the menu item on the left, but since there is no other button for the configurator, I can't access it. Tried to remove all user settings and plugged in different targets/devices.

Same package build a few days ago on my other machine works still fine.

Googled a bit and found something about the Chrome version having this issue, but this is the standalone version. Just wanted to ask if anyone experienced the same issue recently before asking upstream?

Thank you for the explanation. I did indeed run makepkg -s "manually" since I wanted to keep the Git repo for faster updates/rebuilds. I like to do this for Git-based AUR packages.

neo2001: Your AUR helper needs to resolve/build the deps before installation. Seems like your are doing something like makepkg -s and pacman alone can't resolve it of course, because the ffmepg codecs package is also only in the AUR.

Hello and thank you for providing these packages!

I get the following errors when I want to build/install the betaflight-configurator and the blackbox-explorer:

=> WARNING: PACKAGER should have the format 'Example Name email@address.invalid' ==> Making package: blackbox-explorer 3.4.0-1 (Mi 06 Nov 2019 13:43:37 CET) ==> Checking runtime dependencies... ==> Installing missing dependencies... error: target not found: nwjs-ffmpeg-codecs-bin ==> ERROR: 'pacman' failed to install missing dependencies. ==> Missing dependencies: -> nwjs-ffmpeg-codecs-bin ==> Checking buildtime dependencies... ==> ERROR: Could not resolve all dependencies.

After manually installing njws-bin and nwjs-ffmpeg-codecs-bin from AUR everything works fine.

I'm pretty sure I installed the same packages on my other machine without any errors like that, so the it could be a local issue...

Any ideas where to look? :-)
