As you probably know, the <https://www.memtest86.com/downloads/memtest86-usb.zip> URL is likely to cause problems, like this error:

==> Validating source files with sha512sums...
    memtest86-efi-8.2.zip ... FAILED

To avoid this problem, I prefer to reupload memtest86-usb.zip archive somewhere else, where this kind of breakage will not appear.

I can't upload this archive on AUR directly (archive is 8 MB but AUR accepts 250 KiB maximum), so I decide to put this archive on my Git repository to avoid future breakages.

I hope it suits you.

Seems it was due to me having 7-zip-full installed instead of p7zip. Installing p7zip fixed it.

@veganvelociraptr please provide output of following commands:

@SteelT: Nice catch. Fixed in 06d68c731d67, thanks.

The update hook should be updated to not use the deprecated File alias for Path, to avoid it suddenly breaking in a future release of pacman.

@prettyvanilla: My bad, I forgot this one... Fixed in af8178dd5498, thanks.

In your update to not hardcode the path in the ESP (https://aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.git/commit/?h=memtest86-efi&id=6c4590b3a543) you didn't update the update() function accordingly, so the update hook after the recent update copied the memtest86 files to the ESP root instead of updating those in the configured path.

@Sven: Ok, I understand. 7-zip-full is not behaving like p7zip. I installed 7-zip-full to do some tests. It works with both p7zip and 7-zip-full packages since `a69e4de104cd.

Sven commented on 2022-10-02 13:08 (UTC)

I know why this is happening to me. I have aur/7-zip-full installed. Then the file has a different name.
