Congratulation! Calls work in new version! Change a SHA in PKGBUILD and then install.

@Sirius, a new version came out, thus SHA of the package changed.

Currently it's: 1037a48d74caef33d123b166da2bfb1fe8fa67590b8669ecf25b314f41374267

So, until the maintainer verifies and alters the build, your temporary workaround would be to edit the PKGBUILD SHA on line 19.

I got this error when I tried to install viber: ==> Making package: viber (Sat Jul 18 23:22:27 2020) ... ==> Validating source files with sha256sums... viber- ... FAILED ==> ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check!

At the first start, the program displayed an error:

"qt.qpa.plugin: Could not load the Qt platform plugin" xcb "in" "even though it was found. This application failed to start because no Qt platform plugin could be initialized. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem. "

After installing the qt5-base package, everything worked. You need to add this package depending.

Calls don' t work. Does anybody solve this problem?

[1:14:0529/] Failed to query stereo recording.
../../3rdparty/chromium/sandbox/linux/seccomp-bpf-helpers/**CRASHING**:seccomp-bpf failure in syscall 0230

syscall 0230: "Assuming 0230 is decimal, this corresponds to clock_nanosleep. Presumably, the existing seccomp filters in chromium only allow nanosleep, but not clock_nanosleep. They need to be adjusted."[1]

Bug report in [1] also states "There are fixes upstream at Qt based on the Chromium fixes" so unless they do a rebuild, I'm thinking I'll uninstall Viber instead of "enjoying it on their other platforms".

I opened a ticket for the issue with glibc. The response:

We have decided to put any updates for Linux on hold until further notice. There are no version releases planned in the foreseeable future. I apologize for any inconvenience. We hope that you can still enjoy Viber on our other platforms!

firewalker commented on 2020-05-10 11:48

Does anyone knows the offending commit of glibc?

Like others, I have the issue with calls. Outgoing calls never reach anyone. When I make outgoing call, I get systemd-coredump[12749]: Process 12732 (QtWebEngineProc) of user 1000 dumped core. Anyone aware how to fix?
