Alright, package updated.

Yep I know (though it shouldn't be needed), but my arch box is dead right now, I'll update the pkgbuild as soon as I have it restored^^

this one worked to me, just add this line to the PKGBUILD

noextract=("jrosetta-engine-$pkgver.jar" "jrosetta-api-$pkgver.jar")

Oh I took a day to try and build scilab not long ago, that's why I have all those packages around. But I didn't succeed, some package from the official repo isn't recognized by configure (forgot which one), another from aur wasn't either. Only solution is to build their prerequisites tarball, and I don't like that. In the end I just gave up. Good luck to you.

Yes, bdstar (on behalf of yaourt) really did try to extract them, as seen in the output below. I don't understand what this page ( says but I think it's relevant and the extraction attempt is a bug.

It never ocurred to me to try installing with noextract AND not extracting them manually so that may well work and it's actually not necessary to manually extract. Sadly I'm in the middle of building Scilab so I can't test that right now.

Well the JARs are not meant to be extracted, rather they are copied as is in /usr/share/java. Did bdstar really try to extract them? I wasn't aware of that, and if that's the case, noextract is the right way to prevent it and it should be added to the pkgbuild. However I don't understand why you had to manually extract the JARs.

OK I solved that problem by adding this line after the sources=("... line:
noextract=("$pkgname-api-$pkgver.jar" "$pkgname-engine-$pkgver.jar")

I then manually extracted the archives and it has installed

I believe this is related to a libarchive 3.x problem (, similar problems with other packages have suggested using --noextract before build() but I couldn't find the build () in the PKGBUILD. Any suggestions?
