@nbryskin I'm not sure. I have never tried to build on aarch64. If someone wants to take a look at building on aarch64 and provide a patch that would be fine.

I'm getting this error when building on aarch64:

@dipunm, I don't know but you might need to set your java version. See:

Maybe run the archlinux-java command.

I'm getting the error:

ERROR: JAVA_HOME is not set and no 'java' command could be found in your PATH.

Please set the JAVA_HOME variable in your environment to match the
location of your Java installation.

Upgrading from 1.9.6-1 to 1.9.9-1.

I have jdk11-openjdk installed, and I have never had to add anything to my bash profile before.

I also verified, java is in my PATH variable.

I was able to address this by running: JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-11-openjdk/ yay -Sy bisq but I'm wondering what has changed?

@dmrobotix, see

I'm not sure if this is something I can fix in the PKGBUILD.

I'm getting the following error with bsdtar and yay is unable to finish building and installing the latest version as a result.

@janders, what you did is exactly right for updating and should be safe to install. I figured out why my build wasn't working and I should have 1.9.8 pushed shortly.

There is also the bisq-bin package if this one doesn't work for some reason.

The latest update (1.9.8) is required, no trades are allowed with older versions. Since the AUR doesn't have the 1.9.8 yet, this is what I did to the PKGBLD file:

Edit the pkgver line to be:


I downloaded the source code from GitHub, calculated the SHA256 checksum, and edited the sha256sums line with it:


I was then able to build and install the package. But I'm not exactly sure if this is safe to run. Is what I've done sane? What drawbacks, risks, or implications are there to doing this?

I'm having trouble with the build. Does anyone have a suggestion?

Starting a Gradle Daemon (subsequent builds will be faster)

> Configure project :
Project :common => no found

FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.

* Where:
Build file '/build/bisq/src/bisq-1.9.8/build.gradle' line: 200

* What went wrong:
A problem occurred evaluating root project 'bisq'.
