Hi guys, can you check the .INSTALL file?

(1/1) installing rssowl [-------------------------------------------------------------------] 100%
/tmp/alpm_MMi8WJ/.INSTALL: line 2: /usr/share/rssowl/xulrunner/xulrunner: Permission denied
error: command failed to execute correctly

Please note because of this error built-in web-browser won't work.

Why was this package flagged out-of-date?

A functional workaround (not a fix) requires a two step process:

$ sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libhunspell-1.3.so.0.0.0 /usr/lib/libhunspell-1.2.so.0
$ /usr/share/rssowl/xulrunner/xulrunner --register-user

Note that only the first command is run with elevated privileges (and yes I agree that it would be bad for distributing in a package, but it *is* a functional workaround), while the second is run as the user that wishes to use rssowl.

At this point, I am able to view articles using an external browser (via the context menu), but the embedded browser fails because I use a proxy (on a different machine).

No matter how I configure my proxy settings (whether it be manual, system settings, or direct connection), it insists on trying to connect to http://127.0.0.1:8795 through the proxy. I have determined that the cause of this is my configuration of http_proxy in /etc/environment. Running the program as follows is yet another workaround that results in the embedded browser working:

$ ( unset http_proxy; rssowl ) &

I'm using jdk6 from AUR, because certain applications that I run will not play nice with jdk7-openjdk or openjdk6.

Not a chance: it's against every packaging rule that comes to mind. This is a bug you should report to upstream, by the way.

I must have glossed-over the very first comment here. Making a symbolic link from hunspell 1.3 > 1.2 solved the problem. Maybe that could be added to the install script? I have it working fine now after "ln -s /usr/lib/libhunspell-1.3.so.0 /usr/lib/libhunspell-1.2.so.0"

That's strange, I too have hunspell 1.3 from extra and I don't have problems. Maybe the problem is that you use the 64-bit version, while I use 32-bit.
Try to file a bug upstream, or send a mail in the mailinglist: they surely know better than me.

I have hunspell 1.3 installed from extra, it appears to be compiled against 1.2?

lucak3 commented on 2011-11-24 11:00

Did you try installing hunspell from repos? If you confirm that fixes it, I'll add it as dep.

Getting the "unable to create browser error", and when I try the fix mentioned below I get error: "error while loading shared libraries: libhunspell-1.2.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory". I am using the x86_64 version.
