@buzo: Thanks. Removed those.

@SandaruKasa: There is now an official solution ( So I backported this, replacing the workaround.

niklasf, thanks for maintaining this!

By the way, you don't need to specify curl or sed in makedepends: sed is part of base-devel, see here. And curl is a dependency of pacman, which is in base.

@SandaruKasa Thanks! Applied. Will undo when upstream fixes the availability issue or adds mirrors to their build.

Hey! There's been a problem lately with (which is used for retrieving NNUE files) being down or returning 500:

Here's a patch with a (temporary?) workaround for the issue:

@apetresc Thank you for correcting me; So if the package version changes would the PKGBUILD also be changed unless stated otherwise?

@Peter2469 Not exactly; if Stockfish 15 comes out then the package version changes, and pkgrel goes back down to 1. pkgrel is meant to increment for non-upstream changes within a release (for things like fixing PKGBUILDs).

@bulletmark, That is true I would assume if pkgrel gets bumped it is if Stockfish 15 comes out?

bulletmark commented on 2021-08-24 04:12 (UTC)

@Peter2469, yes I know there would be others. To be clear, I didn't bump the pkgrel because there is no point forcing all existing users to see an update (e.g via yay) when none of them are aarch64 users. This change only affects new aarch64 users, who are yet to install it.

@bulletmark, I have tested it and can confirm that it works fine; there would be many other people like me with the pinephone or devices with the same architecture so adding the option may be an idea but understandable at this current circumstance.
