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.

I'm not sure about forgetting something, but if you're still getting that error after running gpg --recv-key, then I don't think the command worked. What output does it produce?

If you're not getting errors, then make sure you're running gpg as the same user that calls makepkg.

I'm sorry to say that I've never used the -bin package myself, but I'm happy to bump the pkgver and dependencies (based on namcap's report) when there's a release. I guess that leaves korrode as full maintainer. :P

I don't even use palemoon any more, but I'm happy to maintain the palemoon package while it remains a gtk2-based browser.

Note, I'm not maintaining this PKGBUILD anymore. I haven't used PM for a long time and I'm not following PM's development either. More appropriate person for the task should continue here. (korrode, WorMzy)

That will be likely be because the palemoon distribution servers are currently down due to server failure.

Temporary downloads are available here:

The PKGBUILD will need to be updated for 27.2.1, however. Just bumping the pkgver should be sufficient.

"Should we include ffmpeg also in opt depts?"

Nah, gst-libav depends on it already.

ok so with some real-world testing (shouldn't have initially believed html5 test sites ;\ ) and different gst plugin combinations i now see:

good+bad OR good+ugly gets you mp3 playback

good+bad results in test site claiming you have AAC support but in practice it doesn't appear to work (i think mp4 container is unsupported, i suppose AAC stream in some other containers might work).

good+libav (without bad) provides MP3 and AAC support anyway (and the AAC support works in practice), and of course h264 video.

So plugins-bad is barely worth mentioning, only someone who for some reason wants to avoid having ffmpeg installed would be interested... basically you had it right in the first place sumt... i'll just slink away now, lol.

korrode commented on 2016-04-06 12:52

added gst-plugins-bad to optdepends for aac and mp3 audio.
vp8 and vp9 work for me without any gst plugins.

26.2.1 release was tagged in their git about an hour ago, so there'll be new binaries very soon.

WorMzy commented on 2016-04-06 08:57

From my own testing, gst-plugins-ugly certainly isn't needed for h.264, but gst-libav and gst-plugins-good are (tested with

Those vp9/8 videos work fine for me using both the -bin package and my natively compiled package.
