@l0b0 it's a git repo, so just mirror it somewhere and ask me to pull from it :)

I'd like to fix some shellcheck issues in How do I submit a patch to a file which is not part of upstream?

Hello everybody, I have the same issue as "zilvervos commented on 2018-03-19 16:02" when I try yaourt -S tor-browser:

% Total % Received % Xferd Average Speed Time Time Time Current Dload Upload Total Spent Left Speed 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 --:--:-- --:--:-- --:--:-- 0 curl: (51) SSL: no alternative certificate subject name matches target host name '' ==> ERREUR : Erreur lors du téléchargement de Abandon… ==> ERREUR : Makepkg n'a pas pu construire tor-browser. ==> Relancer la compilation de tor-browser ? [o/N] ==> ----------------------------------------------

I tried to replace 8.0.3 into in PKGBUILD without success. I did also gpg --keyserver --recv-keys EB774491D9FF06E2 as adviced by yar.

Does anybody encounter the same issue? Take care

[newbie comment] add the key as simple user, not for the root user (no sudo...) The command that finally worked for me: $ gpg --recv-keys EB774491D9FF06E2 (no need to specify the key server)

2) EF6E286DDA85EA2A4BA7DE68:4E2C6E87:93298290 A master key created on 2014-12-15 for the purpose of signing other Tor Browser Developer keys

3) BA1EE421BBB45263180E1FC7:2E1AC68E:D40814E0 signed by #2, 4.0.4 [2015-02-25] through 6.0.8 [2016-12-13] were signed by this

New signing key for 8.0+:

gpg --keyserver --recv-keys 0x4E2C6E8793298290

See the torproject blog post regarding the 8.0 release for key info.

I seriously came here to ask the same thing as @nTia89 — what is the deal with using three hash functions? This is just silly antics that make it harder to manage manually, clutter the diff history, and all without providing any benefit. One of the SHA mechanisms is sufficient, if that doesn't completely solve the problem adding another one is not going to solve the problem, much less adding MD5. Please revert 5df1ca8a986e and use just GPG signature validation plus one set of SHA512 checksums.

nTia89 commented on 2018-06-24 10:26

@yar Why do you use three hash functions (md5sums, sha256sums and sha512sums)?

When /home is mounted with 'noexec' option tor browser fails to execute, I think it's because the executable is placed in /home. Would it be a way to install on '/'? I don't know if installing tor-browser at '/' could open a new security flaw

I cannot build tor-browser-en

Downloading the source files fails:

[update 21-03] Problem seems to have solved itself.
