If you are using firefox and it hangs trying to load Kavita, add a /login to the end of the URL

If all of your ebooks are in your home directory, you will either need to give the kavita user access, or move your ebooks to a more neutral spot.

Where do I create the library if it has no access to my home folder? Did I do something wrong?

Once you update to 0.8.0 there are manually steps needed! You MUST perform a forced library scan on all libraries to migrate properly to the new foundation. Failure to do so may result in data loss.

Sometime between version 7.13 and 14 makepkg started to create kavita-bin-debug package. This has been fixed in 0.7.14-1. Please feel free to remove the debug package if installed on your system

Thanks guys! Deleting the old tar worked for me.

@tzhaung, you might need to do a clean build. I don't know why, but every release from kavita is named kavita-linux-x64.tar.gz. Tools like yay see there is an update, but skip downloading the new tar if it sees the old one is there. Delete the old tar and it should work fine.

It looks like you might have a corrupted download from github. I just verified with that md5sums match the pkgbuild (and I'm running currently as well.)

Might need to update the md5sums. I'm getting this while trying to update:

==> Retrieving sources... 
  -> Found kavita-linux-x64.tar.gz 
==> Validating source_x86_64 files with md5sums... 
  kavita-linux-x64.tar.gz ... FAILED

0.7.7 is out. I am currently traveling and do not have access to my ssh keys. Will update the package Monday the 14th when I return.

I'm sure it's arm64. I'm copy pasting commands I used when I tested. I tested with official binaries just downloaded them to kavita folder in my home folder. I used 'rm -r *' before each test.

The release worked fine no issues: 1. curl -OL 2. tar xvzf kavita-linux-arm64.tar.gz 3. chmod +x Kavita/Kavita 4. Kavita/Kavita

The 0.7.2 and all builds after result in SIGILL: 1.1 curl -OL 1.2 curl -OL 1.3 curl -OL 2. tar xvzf kavita-linux-arm64.tar.gz 3. chmod +x Kavita/Kavita 4. Kavita/Kavita

As far as tools: I had used paru, but I do clean cached AUR packages before updates.
