MarcinWieczorek commented on 2016-10-04 08:41

Yeah I spent some time on it. Couldn't find it anyone who had such issue...

funilrys commented on 2016-10-04 08:29

Okay I don't promess anything but I'm gonna see what is possible to make this work.

Maybe an update soon ?
I can't actually say it !

When you update the package XAMPP :(

MarcinWieczorek commented on 2016-09-07 18:13

A cookie for the one who fixes proot and XAMPP!
Also, don't fill orphan request if you're going to run this with sudo -,-

ktrls commented on 2016-08-30 09:32

I don't know if this can help:

Anyway I have made many attempts and I think the problem is into the installer .run

MarcinWieczorek commented on 2016-07-10 09:35

You know this is a stupid way to build a package?

ijann commented on 2016-07-08 20:06


sudo chmod +x

sudo ./

v5.6.23 ;)

MarcinWieczorek commented on 2016-06-20 09:49

I'm getting the same, you're nothing special. Find me a solution :/

harabara commented on 2016-06-20 09:48

Getting same as kalsan:

==> Starting package()...
==> Extracting package to a chroot...
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package().

kalsan commented on 2016-06-17 07:53

Checksums now working! However we're just one step further: The build process fails:

==> Beginne package()...
==> Extracting package to a chroot...
==> FEHLER: Ein Fehler geschah in package().

(the latter means: ERROR: An error occured in package() )

jollanza commented on 2016-06-17 07:44


here we are!

my md5sum for "86826f25c52d9960d329b0c087c7327f"

but you could find ALL the md5s that you need, for every version, here:

MarcinWieczorek commented on 2016-06-16 16:56

@jollanza send me your checksums of those .run files

jollanza commented on 2016-06-16 15:39

download this:

chmod +x && sudo ./ works.
I know, this is NOT a solution for our package, but if you need to install urgently the xampp package this is (IMHO) the fastest and "bug-free" way.

MarcinWieczorek commented on 2016-06-12 13:50

If someone haves an idea how to fix this please contribute.
Also guys, could you please post valid checksums you get?

berserkingyadis commented on 2016-06-12 13:47

Got the checksum error too.

kalsan commented on 2016-06-10 14:02

Same thing here. Checksums won't fit.

wanderstudent commented on 2016-06-08 07:35

I've got the same problem and for me manually downloading doesn't work either. (Same problem with checksums)

MarcinWieczorek commented on 2016-06-04 13:13

I've got no idea what causes your errors.
I regenerated the checksums and they were correct.
Will look into this later.
Thanks for reporting the issue!

Daedalus24 commented on 2016-06-04 06:54

Got it, had to download and manually launch the package! It doesn't install from AUR. Maybe we will be able to solve the problem.

All the best,

Daedalus24 commented on 2016-06-03 21:39

A checksum problem that may be bypassed using yaourt --m-arg "skipchecksums"

Validating source_x86_64 files with md5sums...
xampp-installer ... FAILED

I am getting this error:

I won't be maintaining this package as I don't use it anymore.

Thanks for reporting, I thought I had fixed this before.
Now htdocs are copied to /opt/lampp/htdocs_backup before upgrade. Not sure if I should restore it to /opt/lampp/htdocs automatically.

tomaszgasior commented on 2016-03-29 12:30

I encountered problem, when I updated XAMPP package. During update, pacman overwrite config and data files in /opt/lampp directory, such as httpd.conf (Apache config) or var/mysql (databases data).

Can you solve this problem in package scripts during update? (Sorry for my English mistakes.)

The_Loko commented on 2016-02-23 23:28

That's because xampp installer tries to create "mysql" user but it fails when it does it on PKGBUILD.
It will work fine if you create the "mysql" user before running it, I don't know how to fix it as it needs to be created before installing.
I will update as soon I find a solution.

Got a problem while installing:

Press [Enter] to continue:############Warning: Problem running post-install step. Installation may not complete

Temporary workaround is run 'sudo useradd -r mysql' before install.
