Thank you for the hint, I've updated the checksum. And many thanks, @mich, for your improvement proposal regarding the archive extraction! I've incorporated it in the new PKGBUILD.

It worked. I manually changed PKGBUILD file in Pamac GUI by deleting the entries flagged with "-" and replaced them with the "+" entries. It seems that patch files cannot be used directly in the Pamac GUI.

@mich thx for sharing this diff file. However, I'm struggeling to apply it in Pamac GUI. I can't add an additional tab in the build file section. When I overwrite the existing pkgbuild the system is doing some weird stuff that I don't understand by creating additional install and diff file. What am I doing wrong?

Failed to install freefilesync-bin. Sha256sums seems to be wrong

Hello. i'm Not able to build. Giving errors on latest pamac update manjaro. Aborting on compiling ceph packages. Thanks in advance for reply

From my understanding of, pkgrel need not be incremented if the resulting package is the same, which seems to be the case here.

aminvakil commented on 2022-09-05 14:36 (UTC)

You ought to increase pkgrel as well IMO. Whatever has been changed in archive, makes an impact on final package.

Thanks for the hint! I have updated the checksum. Evidently the archive has been modified in the meantime.

Looks like the sha256 is actually 627320378bcc4867280bbb5fd2b2a2f9eeba24ad7bd3c5ecd81e4b4703d2775e as opposed to f75d75270fe366e4268458588a9acf4085891cb995a8a2a205f2f1df0af260cf configured in the PKGBUILD file. This prevents the package from being built as @david784 referenced.
