I have same issue :(

'makepkg' do nothing after message "running installer" and no errors appear...

PKGBUILD contains a command line with 'fakechroot', when I try to execute this command outside of makepkg, it works.

  • This command line in package sources works :

    fakechroot chroot "./pkg/microchip-mplabx-bin" ./tmp/

  • But this command does not :

    fakeroot fakechroot chroot "./pkg/microchip-mplabx-bin" ./tmp/

Have you any idea of this trouble ?

Have you left it to finish? Did you actually get any errors?

It takes a few minutes to run (and you won't see a GUI like you do when you run the installer manually).

Im running it on an another partition with makepkg. It showing "running installer"but not happens.

No problems here. If you are running it via an AUR helper be aware that the package requires a lot of free space to build and some AUR helpers run in the /tmp dir which can be small.

Try running the makepkg manually somewhere with a lot of free space and see if it completes.

Hello, build stops at "running installer". Can I change the installation folder (run/media/)? When I open the .run file in a terminal all works fine.

Looks like v5.40 is available as of 5/29/20 -- any plans to update the repository? Honestly asking, not trying to be a jerk.

@Pandor java8-openjfx does not provide java-openjfx=8

Is there any reason why this package depends on "java8-openjfx" and not "java-openjfx=8"? i'm cleaning my system from python2 packages, since it will no longer be maintained. "jre8" provides "java-openjfx=8", and unlike "java8-openjfx" it does not have a dependency on "python2". this is the only package keeping me from removing python2 completely.

Seems latest version is 5.2. May I request to update the package build?
