If you get a checksum error on FreeFileSync_xx.x_Source.zip, please try to download this file manually from https://freefilesync.org before building.

The host for the source URL is hostile towards direct downloads and will randomly output the wrong content. In my experience, retrying once or twice is enough to make it work (don't forget to delete the source archive first !).

@mercutio

Indeed, we should change the project URL. The workaround with the cookie consent page does not work anymore on my side, but a workaround is still needed on my side. :/

It looks like the cookie consent page isn't available / required anymore. I would also change the domain to drop the www since it just redirects me to https://freefilesync.org/.

Actually I had already updated the package this morning but wanted to add a fix for Google Drive integration before pushing to the AUR. :P

I took the liberty to rebase my commit onto the current AUR master and push.

@boustanihani

My bad, forgot to clean my build environment. Fix will take a few minutes.

@nipsky

The checksum serves two purposes: 1. protect against any malicious software 2. to ensure the download actually succeeded

Ignoring the checksum will result in the error you get.

@jooch: Yes, I skipped the checksum (too much hassle with it in yay), got the same problem with the new ffs source you provided though.

@jooch

That's good news. :)

You could try to extract the curl line in a separate script ? I experimented with this a while ago and it seemed to work: https://github.com/simonbru/aur-freefilesync/commit/32d144b60d93f19ead84909825508f29f9bf941c

However I don't know if this is an acceptable practice.

Thanks for trying Symen, well i do have a curl line that works without issues, however i can't put that in a PKGBUILD, as in: i don't know how to do that. Lot's of characters in that line that screw up makepkg.

symen commented on 2019-04-06 16:12

@jooch

Could anyone test the following line in place of the ffs source:

Unfortunately this doesn't work for me, unless I open the link in my browser, in which case it "generates a new key" and redirects me to the correct file after 5 seconds.
