* Package has been updated.

* 'SKIP' parameter added to the 'dotnet-cli' source (maybe it would be better not to add this and push users explicitly to turn off checksum checking so that they aware what they are doing)
* Now 'pkgver' parameter is set during the package building execution with the version value received from Github 'dotnet/cli' repository. This time many thanks to @dcelasun with 'visual-studio-code-insiders' package for inspiration :-)
* By running makepkg every day by user it is possible for him to get latest build of dotnet-cli every day without need for me to push new package version to the AUR.

I had the similar problem in the past with the OpenSSL library. The system was complaining about that some library related to cryptography not found. So @abrodersen that time added copying of '' from the newly built CoreFX to the 'dotnet/share/Microsoft.NetCore.App/*' folder and the problem was solved. (see in PKBUILD file)

So there is also such library that ''. You can try to manually copy it to the 'dotnet/share/Microsoft.NetCore.App/*' folders after dotnet-cli-git installation from 'src/corefx/bin/Linux.x64.Release/Native/' folder and see if this helps. There is also some other libraries there that can be copied.

If some library replacement help we can consider to add it to the package description in AUR.

The package has built and installed. dotnet restore fails with this for each package reference in the project:

The type initializer for 'System.Net.Http.CurlHandler' threw an exception.
The type initializer for 'Http' threw an exception.
The type initializer for 'HttpInitializer' threw an exception.
Unable to load DLL 'System.Net.Http.Native': The specified module could not be found.
(Exception from HRESULT: 0x8007007E)

Though I think this is an issue with dotnet itself.

@lwinch2006 I traced the lttng-ust issue back to a GitHub issue here:
From there I created a patch from the commit and I have a build running now. I will let you know if it fails.

Please change the checksum to 'SKIP' (case-sensitive).

That will make makepkg skip the checksum check for the offending file.

1) Because PKBUILD always downloads latest dotnet-cli from github so checksum is changed every time. So here 2 things that should be taken into account: checksum will not be correct (--skipchecksums flag could be used maybe when building) and actual version of installed package will not be the same as version in PKBUILD. Version will be something different (newer) than 4793 build number.

2) About lttng-ust I'm not sure. I have not found neither in Packages nor in AUR lttng-ust-dev package, just lttng-ust (and lttng-ust-git) packages. Also in dependencies of dotnet there is precise lttng-ust that pointed out. So you can post your exception here so that it becomes more clear what happened during your installation.

I'm having some problems with building this. The signature for dotnet-cli-git-1.0.0_rc4_004793.tar.gz seems to be incorrect and after replacing it in the PKGBUILD I get an error regarding liblttng-ust-dev. I do have lttng-ust installed.

Since there has been a while when all packages related to "dotnet command line tools" got updated, I have decided to add one package more.
This package is fully based on the package "dotnet-cli" many thanks to @abrodersen.
