The sha256sums is outdated.

second time there's problems with that package. Do you need contributors? I'd be glad to help with that.

@Forty-Bot: -bin suffix is reserved for binary packages where source code is available. It is decidedly not required for software which is only available as binary packages.

The updated package with new sum should probably be marked with a pkgrel of 2, since it's still indicated to be version 2.4.17 in the included documentation, as well as the BASS site.

Also, technically, the freeware tag above only applies if your software is also freeware, or does not charge money or make more than a certain amount with donations, or something like that. For which it does have commercial licenses available starting at price points that haven't changed in a number of years.

I'm really only using these distribution PKGBUILDs for something I made that uses libbassmidi, an alternative MIDI plugin for DeaDBeeF. Unfortunately, installing it requires deleting or chmod 0ing the wildmidi plugin that is bundled with DeaDBeeF, since it provides no way to disable plugins or control their load order or priority.

The new checksum is: a72fdacb6bb23b899362d449ac0e36ada0b68d57825dce07b28cdcc91f76912c

You can fix this by going into the cloned AUR package (e.g. cd ~/.cache/paru/clone/libbass when using paru) and editing PKGBUILD or running updpkgsums to update the checksum automatically and makepkg -sri to install.

This package should be named libbass-bin...

I fixed it in my end. Since hte maintainer doesn't want anyone else to edit the pkgbuild, here's the changes to do:

Fails for me (apart from the usual checksum update requirement):

==> Starting package()...

install: cannot stat 'x64/': No such file or directory

==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package().
