@yanboyang713 Remove sudo from the command. I'm not sure if it will resolve your problem, but regardless you shouldn't run it as root.

I get two error msg below. I don't know what is that.

For configuring HiDPI run:

WINEPREFIX=$HOME/.winbox/wine /usr/bin/winecfg

and change the "Screen resolution dpi" setting found in the "Graphics" tab

WinBox dropdown

Thanks for explaining. When I clicked earlier, nothing happened (because ad blocker) so I assumed I was already in the right place.

Would someone mind explaining the versioning to me? This package is 3.40, but on the website, all I see are 6.x/7.x. Thanks.

6.x/7.x are RouterOS versions, not WinBox. If you click the WinBox dropdown on this page, you will see WinBox 3.40 downloads for x64 and x86_64.

After the one time it had the checksum on the PKGBUILD of 3.40-1 it flipped back (to what turns out to be the right one then). Checking again right now, it's still incredibly slow/unstable to download but the checksum has, aside from that one time, always ended up as 91f7b0456619dbfc19940a85566c949ce3718321f32709886df5125c71f0b6b7.

It's good to have confirmation which one is supposed to be the right one (they should really have this on their website or forum release posts honestly...). Now it's not really a gamble any more whether we'd be running something invalid or not.

FWIW, I have been able to reproduce the issue where it throws ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check!. I am using yay on EndeavourOS and have been able to delete ~/.cache/yay/winbox and it works the second time, every time. I'm not sure it's a Mikrotik issue, or it would not work so reliably after wiping cache.

Also, this issue reoccurred at 10:00PM PST 10/23, so Mikrotik's fix as of 10/20(previous comment) was either not successful or not present in latest version.

I've contacted Mikrotik and they've fixed the issue:

Thank you for the report.
We've found and fixed the issue.
Please verify if you now receive the accurate value:  91f7b0456619dbfc19940a85566c949ce3718321f32709886df5125c71f0b6b7

Tried again and after 6 times of the MikroTik server interrupting/terminating the connection, it finally finished the dload and it had the checksum in the PKGBUILD this time.
