Sometimes freefilesync.org delivers only an incomplete tar.gz file which leads to the checksum verification failure. The only solution I can see is to try again.

I gave up on this program. I don't want to install this program manually, kind of defeats the purpose of AUR. There is a flatpak available but it is an old version 9.8. My suggestion, find a new hosting solution that works.

Seems to be the same download issue which has already been discussed earlier. Have you tried multiple times?

I get this problem

==> Validating source files with sha256sums...
   freefilesync-bin-10.7.tar.gz ... FAILED

Probably, because while downloading this file, something is wrong:

:: Content of /tmp/trizen-u0/freefilesync-bin/freefilesync-bin-10.7.tar.gz

<!doctype html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
...
...
...
                        </script>
                        <noscript>[Turn on JavaScript to see the email address]</noscript>
                </div>
        </footer>

<script src="/base.js"></script>
</body>
</html>

=>> Edit freefilesync-bin-10.7.tar.gz? [y/N]:

Seems like HTML is downloaded instead of the file.

For me it's working. What exactly is the problem? File not found? Or checksum error? Have you tried multiple times?

"https://freefilesync.org/download/FreeFileSync_10.7_Linux.tar.gz"  # Works
But: "${pkgname}-${pkgver}.tar.gz::https://freefilesync.org/download_redirect.php?file=FreeFileSync_${pkgver}_Linux.tar.gz"  # Fail

Thanks for the tip. Along with the update to version 10.7, I changed the source URL into the one you proposed.

Using the source URL <https://freefilesync.org/download_redirect.php?file=FreeFileSync_>${pkgver}_Linux.tar.gz in PKGBUILD may solve the incomplete tar.gz download issue. (I used to maintain the freefilesync AUR package for a bit and noticed the slightly different source URL.)

Indeed the checksum changed. I have updated the package. Apparently the binaries have been modified slightly, even though it is the same version number.

Wrong checksum for freefilesync-bin-10.6.tar.gz. The right one is :

         b4ee79bce386dd00c39b089a43f305d5941a1eef92a1e175428e760e188086c0

Very strange, sometimes, as adready noticed, freefilesync.org does not correctly deliver source files. So, I downloaded

 <https://freefilesync.org/download/FreeFileSync_10.6_Linux.tar.gz>

5 times. Each time, I got the same checksum as above. So, I hope it is the correct one.

My pleasure. I'm glad that it's useful for you.
