As you probably know, the <> URL is likely to cause problems, like this error:

==> Validating source files with sha512sums... ... FAILED

To avoid this problem, I prefer to reupload archive somewhere else, where this kind of breakage will not appear.

I can't upload this archive on AUR directly (archive is 8 MB but AUR accepts 250 KiB maximum), so I decide to put this archive on my Git repository to avoid future breakages.

I hope it suits you.

Hi, the latest pkgver bump is actually less than the previous one. You can test with vercmp.

$ vercmp 9.0 9.0build2000

This should give -1. You might have to bump epoch if you want to change your PKGBUILD versioning.

@leuko: Thanks for your comment. I improved this behavior in 3d058842b163. It is a shame I never run shellcheck on this script before. :)

I had the following error after invoking memtest86-efi --install with EFI entry addition (2. option):

Add a new EFI boot entry...                                                                                          
invalid numeric value -w

The problem was that I provided the path for my md array. Providing the real device name (/dev/sda instead of /dev/md/mycomp:boot) fixed the issue.

Thank you for this package Xorg!

@jakub: Ok. BTW, the script tries to mount the partition on the given mount point if the partition is not mounted.
The script has been improved thanks to your feedback.

@Xorg: it seems it's not mounted, which is quite strange as I've set mount point during installation. Anyway, I'll have to sort it out. Thx for hint!

@jakub: No, it is not correct. Are you sure /dev/sda1 is mounted? You can check with mount | grep /dev/sda1.
Otherwise, you can enter the mount point manually.

➜  ~ sudo memtest86-efi --install
This script is unofficial, written by an AUR (Arch User Repository) user. Use it at YOUR OWN RISK.
Press Enter if /dev/sda1 is your ESP partition, else enter device path manually (like /dev/sdXY): 
Press Enter if  is your mount point, else enter mount point manually (like /boot/efi):

As you see script did not show anything as "mount point". Is this correct?

@capoeira: then run memtest86-efi --install...
