@biosin: I rm the file and makepkg -sCo. The checksums are fine.

I fixed the msg2 lines to handle makepkg --nocolor.

Can't repro?

I've tried to install and got an error: "rename: error: unrecognized arguments: lib/desktop/mime/packages/x-java-archive.xml"

No, you're missing the point :D.

Please read, eg. here:

Or my question (less technical):

Or the old Wiki entry (even less technical):

Okay then, let's extend the scope of the article:

The checksum type and values should always be those provided by upstream, such as in release announcements. When multiple types are available, the strongest checksum is to be preferred: sha256 over sha1, and sha1 over md5.


Det commented on 2018-07-19 16:30

You linked a section of the Wiki that actually had a pretty good chart about the differences between MD5, SHA-1, preimage and collision resistances.

It didn't fit the scope of the article tho, so it was removed. The only reasoning left there is literally "When multiple types are available, the strongest checksum is to be preferred".

Reason I was asking is because I don't think you know the aforementioned terms and differences.

I just did.
