I found problems with the last P4 released version. Last package version is 2017.3.1601999 and the shas256 for .tgz is no longer valid.

This is the new PCKBUILD file:

Can you update it?

Thanks in advance.

Please don't flag this out of date for version 1582486. Perforce made a new version without actually updating p4v, so there is nothing to do for p4v.

[update] I'm stupid: I thought I had cleared the cache, but I hadn't. It might be useful to save the tarball to a unique filename so helpers don't get confused (e.g. "p4v-$pkgver.tgz"::'sourceurl')

It appears that p4v.tgz's checksum is failing. New version?

Thanks for maintaining.

P4 updated package.
To be updated with package 2017.2.1573260
and new p4c.tgz shas256:

The .install file is not necessary and can be removed.

Reinstalling at the moment another PC and it is fixed, thx :)

bwidawsk commented on 2017-07-21 16:26

@vollekannehoschi perforce updated their 17.2 to a new 17.2. Should be fixed now.

p4v.tgz failed sha256sums, I tried it three times.

Getting the wrong permissions under /usr/share/p4v/. Getting 750, when it should probably be 755. Applies to all files under there.

grr. The way that the PKGBUILD handles multiarch is driving me up a wall. No matter what I do, the scripts default to x86 instead of x86_64. I will fix this manually for now.

zerophase commented on 2016-11-02 20:57

I'm getting for sha256 on the x86_64:


for p4v.tgz

bwidawsk commented on 2016-10-27 04:20

@zerophase: Thanks. That was some really unlucky timing :D

zerophase commented on 2016-10-27 02:05

@bwidawsk: It looks like perfoce has updated p4v to p4v-2015.2.1455432

zerophase commented on 2016-10-27 01:49

@bwidawsk This is what I'm getting for p4v.tgz:


bwidawsk commented on 2016-10-27 01:40

@zerophase: it works for me. Can you tell me what you're getting for the SHA256?

zerophase commented on 2016-10-27 00:32

The sha256 value isn't correct for x86_64.

Nephyrin commented on 2015-11-09 20:17

p4vc doesn't work out of the box with this, it needs a wrapper that puts /usr/share/p4v/lib/icu/ on LD_LIBRARY_PATH
