@harmathy the tarball(if it is this one "dosbox-staging-linux-v0.81.0.tar.xz") is a binary release not a source release, this package is to build it from source. if you want a binary release use the package dosbox-staging-bin

@silverhikari ah, sorry. I somehow missed that.

Another possibility is to use the git repository and the release tag.

source=("git+https://github.com/dosbox-staging/${pkgname}#tag=v${pkgver}")
sha256sums=('SKIP')

A lot of other AUR packages use this pattern.

just test the checksum again and it seems to be working, you may need to delete the src/ folder and the v0.81.0.tar.gz

This PKGBUILD uses the github generated tarball which may change checksum anytime. Use the tarball provided by upstream!

source=("https://github.com/dosbox-staging/${pkgname}/releases/download/v${pkgver}/${pkgname}-linux-v${pkgver}.tar.xz")
sha256sums=('034b08a941a7fd0279a81b10af620999c569f7e81b786e7f4b59a0b94e46d399')

This build is still broken because of the sha256sum

Currently doesn't build because the SHA256 checksum for the v0.81.0 release tarball doesn't match.

Annoyingly, build hates -Os now.

meson.build:155:8: ERROR: Problem encountered: 

 Overriding CXXFLAGS with the size-optimization flag, "-Os", when
 performing a release build with GCC produces a binary that hangs.
 Use the "minsize" buildtype instead.

Doesn't even mention which version of gcc, or which target. And fails the build. Sigh.

"zlib-ng" has to be added to depends. Archlinux: confirming it builds.

@harmathy thanks, zlib-ng added to makedepends solves my issue.
