Testing is needed because of major version bump from v1 beta to v2
New: The package will download source from the fosshub with the help of some magic.
Removed: grub4dos dep

Maybe 'jq' builddep should be added.

The main current downside - the package hash is not being verified as it should.

You can build the current version (as of 2023-11-08) with the following changes to the PKGBUILD

"pkgver='2.19'" ... "md5sums=('81a15b392fecb12ffca046d958e0c0ff')"

The website behind $url seems broken.

http://www.easy2boot.com/ just gives me

Ooops!

There has been a slip-up!
Someone left a banana peel on the e-road.

There is a problem and we are working hard to fix it. Please reload the webpage or try to visit us again later. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

This appears to be completely broken, at least for me it is... The PKGBUILD doesn't work, and if I manually download both versions 2.10 and 2.11 of Easy2boot, the zip files don't even have the .sh files that are called from within the PKGBUILD.

So, is installing from linux only supported from older versions? I found the 2.09 version does have the linux .sh files. But the PKGBUILD doesn't work for this version because the directory structure is different. Am I missing something? Are there different versions of 2.10 and 2.11 that I didn't see??

I checked BOTH linux versions: Easy2Boot_v2.11_DPMS_password_is_e2b.zip and Easy2Boot_v2.11_pasword_is_e2b.zip

I downloaded all versions from here: https://www.fosshub.com/Easy2Boot.html

Also, if I run the build just by default using yay, here's the error I get. It fails at an API request:

Hi @Tylio ! The FossHub URL should be changed from https://www.fosshub.com/Easy2Boot.html?dwl=Easy2Boot_v1.B8.zip to https://www.fosshub.com/Easy2Boot-old.html?dwl=Easy2Boot_v1.B8.zip. The one without the "-old" doesn't trigger download.

I got error that unrar 1:5xxx is not found by pacman, i then did a pacman -Sy unrar and makepkg compiled it, but installing the package fails saying that metadata isn't valid or corrupted. I am dumb ?

Have a great day !

@Techman35

See the first lines of the PKBUILD:

You need to manually download the Easy2Boot_v1.B8 zip file from: https://www.fosshub.com/Easy2Boot.html?dwl=Easy2Boot_v1.B8.zip
