It seems that PKGBUILD sets invalid permissions for data directory and configuration file:

After trousers installation and running of tcsd.service:

$ pacman -Qkk 2>&1 1<&- | grep trousers
warning: trousers: /etc/tcsd.conf (UID mismatch)
warning: trousers: /etc/tcsd.conf (GID mismatch)
warning: trousers: /etc/tcsd.conf (Permissions mismatch)
warning: trousers: /var/lib/tpm (UID mismatch)
warning: trousers: /var/lib/tpm (GID mismatch)
warning: trousers: /var/lib/tpm (Permissions mismatch)

No problems here.

I'm getting a validity error on trousers-0.3.14.tar.gz when attempting to install this package.

Thanks djgera!

I made some changes to this package, please apply it. Thanks.

* Remove install file and use sysusers/tmpfiles.
* Trigger udev from install does not look good practice.
* Avoid user/group/chmod/chown creation at build time (Debian Patch).
* Extract source in correct directory.

So it looks like the previous release of 0.3.14 had a bunch of files that weren't properly updated. For example, the ChangeLog had no mention of 0.3.14. The updated files were to correct this.

I really find the lack of care shown by upstream to be quite shocking, especially given that trousers is security-sensitive software. This is the second time they have retroactively updated their released source files. I hope that they will either be more careful going forward or that someone will write a new TCG software stack to take its place.

Found "95..." checksum'd tarball here:

mutantmonkey commented on 2016-12-03 21:39

It does appear that the checksum has changed and I cannot find any explanation for this on the mailing lists. Given that the download is hosted on SourceForge, tinfoil investments might be in order. I'm hesitant to update the checksums without a more thorough investigation; unfortunately I don't have the original tarball in order to do a comparison.

trousers-0.3.14.tar.gz ... FAILED

I am seeing:

instead of:

Anyone else seeing that, or should I invest in tinfoil...
