@Det, I figured it out, thanks!

You need to clean your $srcdir somehow.

Requires pulseaudio as of v52

What's wrong is that my script still didn't work, and that your single comment takes up 24 lines.

Also, I don't get why do you show a tutorial, then conclude "BTW, what was the reason? I think this is extremely wrong."

@Det I have same issue:
==> Validating source files with sha512sums...
firefox-beta-bin.desktop ... Passed
firefox-beta-bin-safe.desktop ... Passed
==> Validating source_x86_64 files with sha512sums...
firefox-46.0b2.tar.bz2 ... FAILED
==> ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check!




According to documentation https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/PKGBUILD#Integrity you must use 'SKIP' instead empty string to skip integrity checking:
> You can also insert SKIP for a particular file, and its checksum will not be tested.

So after edit PKGBUILD:
-sha512sums_i686=('')
-sha512sums_x86_64=('')
+sha512sums_i686=('SKIP')
+sha512sums_x86_64=('SKIP')

it was successfully installed.


BTW, what was the reason to skip integrity checking? I think this is extremely wrong.

@CaptainMurica, please use Pastebin.

@Kalentia, if you'd look at the PKGBUILD or the commit log instead of guessing, you'd see that my script didn't create any SHA-512 sums at all.

Kalentia commented on 2016-03-11 14:39

@CaptainMurica same issue occurs here, it seems either the checksums weren't updated or the package is incorrect.
