Before reporting the package as out of date, please note that the newer GitHub release you're looking at belongs to the "Release Channel" and isn't marked as prerelease.

I have a cron running that's checking every 30 minutes if there's a new release and sends me an email if so. If you see the release was tagged in the last couple of hours please give it some time before flagging. Thanks.

NOTE: Also please take into account a stable version may be "released" but not marked as ready for a long time.

To disable the message telling "that you're using an unsupported command-line flag --no-sandbox" you must enable user namespaces with sysctl:

sudo sysctl kernel.unprivileged_userns_clone=1

To make it persist after reboot:

echo kernel.unprivileged_userns_clone = 1 | sudo tee /etc/sysctl.d/00-local-userns.conf

@mixedCase - thanks; that did the trick! I just pulled and did 'pacman -Scc'. (PS AUR helpers are an abomination ;)

Cache was certainly not cleared if that's the case. Just delete the MPL2 file from the root directory of the AUR repo and run makepkg -si again. If you're using an AUR helper check its documentation on how to properly clear cache.

@cubic - cache cleared and still get error about validity check (MPL2 ... FAILED)

@TeaKov clear cache

The MPL2 license checksum still fails over here

mixedCase commented on 2019-11-19 01:23

License checksum is now fixed, thanks for reporting.

Brave is finally 1.0!

I think its time to switch Brave Browser to Community repo!

@nuc you have installed brave instead of brave-bin. its a big difference. Thats why Arch Linux doesn't recommend AUR helper. I actually clone the package with git and install it.

If you use yay you must be careful with package's name
