Note that 28.7.0 was signed with the lead dev's pgp key rather that the usual Linux dev's key. You'll need to import the new key into your keyring before the pgp check will be able to verify the tarball: gpg --recv-keys 8FCF9CEC

See and for more information.

The key is fine, but you might have a hard time obtaining it. There has been a lot of keyserver suckage recently, I'm not sure why. Try gpg --recv-keys 865E6C87C65285EC

    palemoon-28.1.0.linux-x86_64.tar.bz2 ... Passed
Looking fine. The same key has been used for several releases already. Also here you can see that the key specified in the PKGBUILD is indeed the same as in your error output:
gpg --receive-key 439F46F42C6AE3D23CF52E70865E6C87C65285EC
gpg: key 865E6C87C65285EC: "trava90" not changed

Is this a trusted key? I always get this message: palemoon-28.1.0.linux-x86_64.tar.bz2 ... FEHLGESCHLAGEN (Unbekannter öffentlicher Schlüssel 865E6C87C65285EC)

bumped pkgrel for clarity. 27.9.3-4 should definitely be fine.

@keepitsimpleengr the error has already been fixed. Seems you downloaded right during the 30 minutes where the issue was present... ;) Please just reinstall.

After installing 27.9.3-3, the executable file 'palemoon' is missing.

find / -name 'palemoon'

.. /usr/share/psd/browsers/palemoon /usr/lib/palemoon /usr/lib/palemoon/palemoon

oberon2007 commented on 2018-07-12 14:15

Oops. Fixed.

Fix the package. It doesn't start. Because of the following commented line: ln -s ../lib/palemoon/palemoon "$pkgdir/usr/bin/palemoon

Will you please remove line 54 in the revised PKGBUILD? The Pale Moon developers would like it removed.

Another Pale Moon guy here..

Thanks for fixing the dictionary/hyphenation discrepancy.

For troubleshooting purposes, we would prefer that the palemoon and palemoon-bin binaries are left intact. The goal is to keep the repackage as pristine as possible.

Long story short: someone using this repackage script came into our IRC channel with a segfault. We pointed him to our official build, and it worked. So we took a look at this PKGBUILD and found the dictionary and symlink issues.

Our goal is to avoid these kinds of issues by asking repackages of our binary builds to remain pristine as possible.

Plus, the binaries are only 257K because most of the guts are in And this should be compressed to the point of deduplication by the xz algorithm.
