@Enverex that's probably because landoleet removes the old package before they upload the new one, so there's a gap in time between updates. Both appear to count as updates in his script, though.

As a general rule, just make a habit of checking this page for version number before you start the makepkg process. If the version number listed here is something like "5.-1" or anything with -1 or otherwise looks wonky, just wait a few mins/hours for the next proper update following cockos actually uploading the new reaper package to landoleet. :)

"The PKGBUILD is automatically updated to follow whats on landoleet" - Are you sure? Build is failing form me with "Failure while downloading".

The checksum is wrong : 8e82f3e8f2eab75ebb1e49b2d64365707ceb8bea8947a4d71e19de6baa0f291f works!

@pha-qu: I dont know what you mean with tout-suite. The PKGBUILD is automatically updated to follow whats on landoleet, but it polls landoleet so it might take some time (usually <1h if my PC is running). The versioning just follows landoleet, even if this means 579rc2 -> 579 shows up as a downgrade.

Hi I checked back, and although the url for the sources in pkgbuild is nearly correct. It isn't quite: curl: (22) The requested URL returned error: 404 Not Found ==> ERROR: Failure while downloading Aborting...

Today, note modified today (wtf!?), it is: Presumably when updates are pushed we need to apply tout-suite before the name changes and breaks the pkgbuild!?

Further the current package is at :

Just need to modify the pkgbuild

Tried to install today, the target for downloading the zipped package doesn't exist anymore. I just uninstalled the crap-hole that is Waveform thinking I'd flip and try Reaper ... seems not

I fixed the mismatched package name by passing an argunent to yaourt like so: yaourt --m-arg "--skipinteg --skippgpcheck" -S reaper

Hey, on the 25th of March 2018 the reaper version on changed to reaper579pre1, but I got the following error "One or more files did not pass the validity check!". The problem was with the validation of the sha256 with the tar file.

I changed the version in the PKGBUILD to reaper579pre1, generated the corresponding sha256 and put that value in the PKGBUILD and that fixed it for me.

I am not quite sure why there are those post_{install,upgrade,remove} functions at the bottom of the PKGBUILD. If they were required, they should go into a .install file, and they are not, since it’s all taken care of by various hooks in /usr/share/libalpm/hooks/ (for example, have a look at /usr/share/libalpm/hooks/update-desktop-database.hook).
