Hi, I'm the co-founder of Parsec. A user reached out to me and pointed this package out. We have instructions for running Parsec on Arch on our support page - https://support.parsecgaming.com/hc/en-us/articles/115003477771. We haven't started officially supporting Arch yet, but in the future we hope to. We are a very small team, so we have to focus on just a couple operating systems for the time being. Sorry about that.

Thanks everyone!

I did install expat-2.2.4 and it still segfaults on connect, with both hw and sw decoding. Parsec guys would not help as they only support Ubuntu. Any ideas?

Need an old version of expat for parsec to not segfault on connect. Download expat-2.2.4 from here: https://archive.archlinux.org/packages/e/expat/expat-2.2.4-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz and pacman -U it

add expat to the IgnorePkg line in /etc/pacman.conf and uncomment the line

You do not need to install any VA-API packages. This build includes the specific libraries parsec needs.

on first run, parsec will fail to start. This creates the configuration directories. On second run, parsec will start fine.

i think you can edit PKGBUILD with

depends=('glibc' 'sndio')
md5sums=('438177b6f9d81f7eb1f093d920193295')

@z0id do you have pulseaudio-module-sndio?

exploser commented on 2017-11-23 16:20

I can connect w/o problems using software decoding. Hardware doesn't work at all for me though.

z0id commented on 2017-11-16 16:43

Did anyone manage to connect to the server without getting a segfault? It must be a library thing, as it works on Ubuntu.

dmnc commented on 2017-11-16 09:24

Failed to verify parsec integrity (bad checksum of parsec-linux.deb).

bdodroid commented on 2017-09-14 15:04

You can bypass the checksum with this: (not recommended but parsec will work)
yaourt --m-arg --skipchecksums --m-arg --skippgpcheck -Sb parsec

lionax commented on 2017-08-06 14:49

Currently fails the md5sum check. Please update.

Also this package is missing the pulseaudio-module-sndio dependency. See https://faq.parsec.tv/articles/10121-linux-ubuntu-1604.
