This PKGBUILD uses a pacman feature to compute checksums in CVS packages, which requires pacman>=6.1.0. If you're coming from Manjaro or an other Arch-based distro with pacman<6.1.0, you need to pass --skipchecksums to makepkg, if building manually, or, if installing with yay, add --mflags --skipchecksums, e.g.:

yay -S --mflags --skipchecksums zapzap

@vvch Thank you for the feedback. I didn't know Manjaro still had pacman 6.0.2. I'll add instructions for people coming from Manjaro or other Arch-based distros with pacman<6.1.0.

@alllexx88 Thank you for your investigation. I use Manjaro which still has pacman 6.0.2

Just upgrade your system, and it should work fine.

As I said before, I have already managed to workaround my problem, but seems like there will be many people who also encounter it since pacman 6.1.0 is a bleeding edge released on March 2024.

@MajorMayer You can ommit the validitation check running makepkg --skipchecksums -si , but keep in mind that doing this implies a security risk, so isn't a recommended practice unless you fully trust the package.

@vvch @MajorMayer I was able to reproduce the error on an old livecd image that had pacman 6.0.1. After upgrading pacman to the current 6.1.0 (and some libraries to make it work), the error was gone. Loos like the older pacman never calculated checksums for CVS sources, while the actual one does (when a fixed tag or commit are specified), going recursively into the dir content. Just upgrade your system, and it should work fine.

P.S. The b2sum from this PKGBUILD was generated automatically by the auto update bot by calling updpkgsums command.

@alllexx88 I got the same problem as @MajorMayer .

rm -rf ~/.cache/yay/zapzap

did not help. Something is wrong with the b2sum. When I changed it to

b2sums=('SKIP')

it worked.

@MajorMayer Can you try a clean build? I'm unable to reproduce the error, but maybe there's something wrong with the previously cloned upstream git repo. If using yay:

rm -rf ~/.cache/yay/zapzap

If building manually, remove pkg src zapzap, or just clone the AUR repo afresh.

Installing doesn't work for me:

@hsantanna, that seems more like an issue with your qt6-base beta.

Maybe you can try to update that one to the newer available version.
