PSA: Upstream does not support building natively for ARM64, only cross-compiling. You can use mullvad-vpn-bin instead.

When attempting to build for Arch Linux using makepkg -si, received error: failed to select a version for the requirement `classic-mceliece-rust = "^2.0.0"` I have run pacman -Syu but nothing is to be updated.

@gmes78: Thanks!

The script included in this package is incorrect. %U is syntax for desktop entry files, it does nothing in Bash, so you're passing a literal %U to mullvad-vpn. should have the following contents instead:

exec "/opt/Mullvad VPN/mullvad-vpn" "$@"

This also applies to the mullvad-vpn-beta package.

@yochananmarqos i'm trying to build this on the modified alarm kernel for newer mac devices (trying to dodge search results) - I know issues for this officially shouldn't be mentioned on arch pages but considering aarch64 as architecture was mentioned and the error directly stated that aarch64 is not supported thought it's worth mentioning,

on to the solutions:

  • adding the specified lines to pkgbuild does not work.
  • mullvad-vpn-bin works normally.

Thanks for the latter solution! The former still throws the exact same error even though I successfully downloaded the necessary package:

@MAKREP: What are you building it on?

Maybe try adding this in the prepare() function right after npm ci:

  if [ "$CARCH" == "aarch64" ]; then
    npm install @grpc/grpc-js

I haven't even been able to get that far building on my PineBook Pro. It fails building wireguard-go:

The package states it supports aarch64, but building on aarch64 I receive the error:

@yochananmarqos: ok, sorry

@morion: Maybe there's a reason to read the Arch wiki?

When I builded last version, there was an error: pkg_config failed: Failed to run "pkg-config" "--libs" "--cflags" "dbus-1" "dbus-1 >= 1.6": No such file or directory (os error 2)

After install package pkgconf error is gone.

Maybe there's a reason to include package pkgconf to make dependencies?
