Can't we eliminate gconf and other dependencies?

Interesting, I always assumed MC was only java 8 compatible, but LegacyLauncher could well be the problem. Worth noting that forge plan on transitioning to a new modlauncher system with 1.13 (and anyone who wants to be forge-compatible will likely have to follow suit) so that may limit the issue to legacy versions and pre-1.13 mods.

@erkexzcx I'm pretty sure both the game and the launcher work fine under jre (version 10), as is my setup. A problem arises in the LegacyLauncher when trying to start stuff like OptiFine though.

@jpegxguy It is recommended to run Minecraft with Java 8.

Updated - Minecraft client (game) works fine even with java version 10, but the actual launcher starts only with java version 8.

Why is java-runtime=8 required? why not >=8 ?

The fix should be in. As long as you don't have something extra in the network doing caching, it should work.

If you are rebuilding in the same directory, delete the file, it should redownload and have the correct checksum.

I'll put in some sort of fix as soon as I get back to a real machine with my SSH keys.

Also reporting in: Minecraft.tar.gz fails sha256 checksum in 2.1.1218-1 update

As for the reusing of filenames, I put that on the TODO pile :)
