Stop spamming the package with unrelated comments. Thanks.

none of this is working as said this is not bau archlinux instalation. its virtual machine running on android

anything related to makepkg or arch repository ends up => ERROR: Running makepkg as root is not allowed as it can cause permanent, catastrophic damage to your system.

Please learn how to use makepkg and the AUR, read the ArchWiki.

[root@localhost ~]# ls Desktop Downloads signal-desktop-beta yaourt

root@localhost ~]# pacman -U signal-desktop-beta loading packages... error: could not open file signal-desktop-beta: Error reading fd 7 error: 'signal-desktop-beta': cannot open package file

maybe stupid question but any idea what to do? i can't commit any commands like this root@localhost ~]# makepkg -si ==> ERROR: Running makepkg as root is not allowed as it can cause permanent, catastrophic damage to your system.

this is vnc machine running on android 14 device

@Edu4rdSHL it's still an issue for me, I just tried to install it today on a freshly installed system, and got the same ruby fpm error that @initnull reported.

Is this still an issue? @initnull

This package has stopped building on aarch64 since beta 6.28 due to an error with ruby fpm.

Recent issue after last update.... Can't copy and paste images or from my computer screen into the messenger. Tried several different ways, Currently using FlameShot as my main screen shot grabber, when I paste ctl-v or right click paste, doesn't add anything. If I run Signal not the Beta, it copies things in correctly. I haven't changed anything on my system, this was after the last update which I did today 5/19/23
