@Det @wsnark it was working for me, just tested in an Arch Docker container and it did not. Fixed the DLAGENTS, should work now.

No, the problem is not the public release (6u45), it's that you can't download even that without logging in anymore.

wsnark commented on 2017-06-27 13:24

The DLAGENTS still points to http variant, so the build fails.

BTW, what about adding an option to download last public release too? For people who do not care about security fixes, but prefer downloading from Oracle?

@Det thanks for the Dropbox mirrors.
Now building should work fine.

I assume you mean those sources won't work?

I just downloaded the thing both from my own Dropbox and, and the md5sums are the same:

40c1a87563c5c6a90a0ed6994615befe *jdk-6u45-linux-x64 (1).bin
40c1a87563c5c6a90a0ed6994615befe *jdk-6u45-linux-x64.bin

E: Oh right. Yes, just replace the "DLAGENTS" override in the PKGBUILD with this (originally defined in /etc/makepkg.conf):

DLAGENTS=('http::/usr/bin/curl -fLC - --retry 3 --retry-delay 3 -b oraclelicense=a -o %o %u'
       'https::/usr/bin/curl -fLC - --retry 3 --retry-delay 3 -o %o %u')

The dropboxes are HTTPS, and I did a HTTP-only override for the links back in the day.

Those Dropbox sources won't work with curl and https.

The hashes of md5sums are not correct. Can someone update this?

For working Dropbox mirrors:

Please include the Java Cryptography Extension (JCE), which provides access to important ciphers like 256-bit AES that are required by some applications:

This is already included in OpenJDK by default.

I've no problems in building x86_64 package; maybe you should retry to make the package removing the .bin file and running again makepkg (so the downloads will be downloaded properly).
Some infos:
$ md5sum jdk-6u45-linux-x64.bin
40c1a87563c5c6a90a0ed6994615befe jdk-6u45-linux-x64.bin
$ du -sb jdk-6u45-linux-x64.bin
72087592 jdk-6u45-linux-x64.bin
$ du -sh jdk-6u45-linux-x64.bin # Almost useless, but gives you an idea of the size
69M jdk-6u45-linux-x64.bin

Source jdk-6u45-linux-x64.bin fails validity check, please fix.
