Hi. The script automatically checks for new versions every half hour. If you see a new version in the FreeCad repository, please wait for 30 minutes before setting the package out-of-date flag. Thanks you.

When I start freecad, I get this error

/home/runner/work/FreeCAD-Bundle/FreeCAD-Bundle/conda/linux/AppDir/usr/share/libdrm/amdgpu.ids: No such file or directory

I use freecad on Ryzen 5 7320u

PKGBUILD is wrong now,

./freecad-${pkgver}.AppImage --appimage-extract freecad_weekly.desktop

should be:

./freecad-${pkgver}.AppImage --appimage-extract org.freecad.FreeCAD.desktop

This patch (applied on the aur) shall fix the error caused by the new structure of the appimage:

I run into the same problems.

Being a lazy YAY user, I jumped over this problem by supplying the missing stuff from the old installation during build:

cp -p /usr/share/applications/freecad_weekly.desktop ~/.cache/yay/freecad-weekly-appimage/src/squashfs-root
patch -p1 -R -d ~/.cache/yay/freecad-weekly-appimage/src/squashfs-root/ <  ~/.cache/yay/freecad-weekly-appimage/freecad_weekly.desktop.patch
cp ~/.cache/yay/freecad-weekly-appimage/src/squashfs-root/usr/share/mime/packages/org.freecad.FreeCAD.xml ~/.cache/yay/freecad-weekly-appimage/src/squashfs-root/usr/share/mime/packages/org.freecadweb.FreeCAD.xml

Now that I am reading this, I think I should have fixed the PKGBUILD ;-)

There is something wrong with version _33848

squashfs-root/usr/share/mime/packages/org.freecad.FreeCAD.xml can't find file to patch at input line 3 Perhaps you used the wrong -p or --strip option? The text leading up to this was:

|--- squashfs-root/freecad_weekly.desktop |+++ squashfs-root/freecad_weekly.desktop

File to patch: Skip this patch? [y] y Skipping patch. 1 out of 1 hunk ignored ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in prepare(). Aborting... -> error making: freecad-weekly-appimage-exit status 4 -> Failed to install the following packages. Manual intervention is required: freecad-weekly-appimage - exit status 4
