If you face this:

==> Verifying source file signatures with gpg... yyyymmdd-firefox-xx.0a1.en-US.linux-${CARCH}.tar.bz2 ... FAILED (unknown public key BBBEBDBB24C6F355)

Please read this.

Short answer:

gpg --recv-key 0x61B7B526D98F0353

If you face this:

==> Verifying source file signatures with gpg... yyyymmdd-firefox-xx.0a1.en-US.linux-${CARCH}.tar.bz2 ... FAILED (bad signature from public key BBBEBDBB24C6F355)

Then just retry later (~1h), this is a CDN caching issue.

The quotes work but the "mv firefox" instead of "cp -R firefox" breaks the install files.

I'd prefer something like this since it's much cleaner (additionally you still left one redundant return "1 check" there): http://aur.pastebin.com/cqRutKRM

Changes include:
- adding quotes around dir variables ("$srcdir" and "$pkgdir") (in case the user's build path contains spaces)
- using the package() function (since there's only packaging involved)
- cleaned the PKGBUILD in common (I'm putting pretty much my money where my mouth is when I say that it's _much_ cleaner now)
- removed wget from make dependencies - since it was the only one there I removed the whole line (wget is included in the group 'base' so it's unnecessary to define it as a (make) dependency)
- removed the md5sums array (sha1sums already existed - you should never use both since the better one (sha1sums) will always be enough even of itself)

Here is an updated PKGBUILD with the two remakrs I've made in November : http://aur.pastebin.com/tGX3jwYJ

- The "wget" has been replaced by "wget -N". The file will be downloaded only if distant file is newer. In that case, the old file will be replaced.
- All the unneeded "return 1" have been removed.

firefox 4.0b9pre in now available! :-)

cgirard commented on 2010-11-17 09:32

Also, the "|| return 1" are no more needed in PKGBUILD.

Could you check for the existence of the bz2 file before downloading it? Right now if the file exist the new (or even the same) version will be downloaded with ".1" at the end of the file name and the old version will be installed.
As you don't (and more likely can't) use any checksum for this file, I think you should delete it and download the potentially newer version.

Thanks,

@discon: You were right. Reinstalling works here too. Thank you.

@orschiro: I believe you just reinstall this and it downloaded the latest nightly. Worked for me.

I always get the message to update on a new version. So this package has to be upgraded or what do I have to do in order to install the latest build of nightly?

Regards
