I have made another update 4.24-3 which now includes the pkgrel in the download file name. So whenever the pkgrel gets bumped this will force a new file to be downloaded, and thus avoid this checksum problem with any old cached file.

@SleepyMario, make sure you use the current version 4.24-2 and make sure you delete any cached scid_vs_pc-4.24.tgz as the SCID developers one again released a new update but used the same version number.

Checksum Error:

==> Validating source files with md5sums... scid_vs_pc-4.24.tgz ... FAILED

Disregard my last. Rookie mistake. I just put the one 'SKIP' but forgot to include the md5sums for all the other stuff in sources like in this package. Oops.

Just a question for the maintainer. I modified your pkgbuild to build the latest from SVN. My question is how do I get it to skip integrity checks. I know I can do makepkg --skipinteg but I want it in the pkgbuild so I can share it here. I tried md5sums=('SKIP') immediately after the sources but that didn't work.

Yes, we have to put up with this crazy practice where the upstream developers release new changes in the same version file(!). I have updated the md5sum.

Looks like the source tarball on sourceforge might have changed in-place :( The md5sum no longer matches.

By making 'snack' and 'tdom' optional I think we need to add 'tk' to dependencies. 'tk' was installed by 'snack' before and is necessary for 'scid_vs_pc'. See 'scid' for reference:

@bulletmark, the package is indeed out-of-date - 4.20 is out:

bulletmark commented on 2019-03-27 07:56 (UTC)

@andmars, please don't flag out of date unless it is out of date. I have made snack and tdom optional because snack provides sound but I find that it is very buggy and I see the scid_vs_pc sources mention this in many places and at tdom is required only for Xfcc support which is only used by some correspondence chess servers.
