Hm.. good point.

Never had this problem (with this package, at least), so I'd just naively assumed AUR helpers (like paru, in my case) checked for changes to checksums in the .SRCINFO and re-downloaded files accordingly.

To make all this less error prone, it would make sense to follow your hint, I guess, and do it the

# …
  patch -p1 -i ../${pkgver}-${pkgrel}_patch_filename.patch

way in the next release – thanks!

@lsf Caching sources is a makepkg feature. The names of the patches in this PKGBUILD are not unique and do not even depend on $pkgver, which causes these failures. See the warning in

It looks like Manjaro caches some of the downloaded source files somewhere – I don't know where it does that (or if you've used another AUR helper which does it / maybe even just used makepkg directly somewhere?). Basically you have to make sure that no leftover files from a previous build (like the .patch files for example) are left so the updated files will be downloaded and used instead of the cached ones – which leads to them not passing the checksum validation here (and which would subsequently lead to a failing build later on, probably).

Librewolf fails to build on Manjaro Xfce. If anyone can help or fix this, that would be greatly appreciated.

So basically just having source= and an additional source_aarch64=?

I did not know this was possible – thanks for pointing that out! :)

FabioLolix commented on 2021-04-05 20:18

It is not needed and that are only 2 patch files, you can use source_aarch64=() for that 2 only

lsf commented on 2021-04-05 20:16

Considering this is used to not download additional files that are not required for non-aarch64 builds, it seems like a reasonable approach to me.

FabioLolix commented on 2021-04-05 19:47

You are using source_aarch64=() and source_x86_64=() which are not needed since you are downloading source code not pre-compiled binaries

@lsf It is weird!

It worked fine when I installed Librewolf the first time. I guess I might have messed things when I installed some other package.

My TERM is xterm-256color. I am using the default fish from Manjaro installation.

ncurses exists, reinstalling it doesn't seem to fix the terminfo database

infocmp -D returns /bin/fish

Thank you very much for pointing me in the right direction, I will investigate it further.

While writing this I realized that the first time I installed Librewolf was not from the terminal, but from the add/remove software. And the first time I tried to update there was an error, but removing the package and installing from there made it work. So I am trying that again.

Right now everything seems to be building fine.

But I still need to figure out why ncurses database doesn't work if I am using yay -S Librewolf from terminal.
