This package will verify the signature of the git tag / commit. Developer keys are available here and instructions are here. See the PKGBUILD to determine which developer key you need.

I'm admittedly new at this, but is this a server issue, or...?

@yochananmarqos I just checked and it doesn't appear to be on the wiki anywhere, weird. I learned about it from other packages and have been using it myself.

@jhenson: I didn't know makepkg could do that, thanks! Where did you find that out? I didn't see anything in the wiki or the man page about it.

If you put ?signed at the end of the git urls makepkg will verify the commit/tag for you. This is needed for building in a clean chroot where the sources are verified outside of the chroot. The validpgpkeys array also needs to list the specific signing sub-key instead of the parent key.

The following patch fixes the chroot verification for me:

Thanks for all your work on this package!

@procyon-lotor: Why are you not running the stable 5.4.2 kernel? See Enable support to run unprivileged containers (optional)

procyon-lotor commented on 2019-12-10 18:24


I'm using kernel Linux 5.4rc7.d1117.g1d4c79e-1

here's the pastebin of the build.

yochananmarqos commented on 2019-12-09 22:06

@procyon-lotor: That shouldn't happen during build, but could happen running the GUI. What kernel are you using? Please paste the build log to a pastebin service and link it here, I'll take a look.

@a.liedtke: Please also paste the build log to a pastebin service and link it here.

Stupid question incoming:

I'm having trouble getting the mullvad build to run correctly.

I get an error message regarding chrome-sandbox not being owned by root and it should be set as chmod 4755.

Having done that, rerunning the build just replaces the files with newly generated.

How do i solve this?
