Unfortunately, upstream does not really have proper releases but instead points to build-versions of the software. Note, I will not push every new build of the package to the AUR but I will update the package upon new minecraft releases, e.g. for 1.14.4 to 1.14.5.

@xiretza Yes, you're absolutely right! I fixed the issue just now!

xiretza commented on 2021-01-17 15:03 checksum is wrong - should be d4c645a58e1a17a0a1e42856a3cc43097711a05bf3d9f18c77c3bc9874417f223552859042ff00b7d3dda0003f49a9ee568540c2eb24e9f8fbb3c055f3b6e0a5.

Unfortunately there was a bug related to the new way users are created. It has been fixed in the new release of the package but for servers already featuring a papermc user, manual intervention is needed: If you happen to encounter the error message This account is currently not available., you will need to update the login shell such that you can interact with the console again by running usermod -s /bin/bash papermc as root.

@mqs This file is just a remnant from a very old version. I'll delete it with the next release. Thanks!

About the sysusers.d and tmpfiles.d stuff: I have long toyed with the idea of switching. I definitely agree that this is superior to the way it is handled now. However, I do not have the time at hand to properly test it and as I know that quite a few use my script and minecraft packages "productively" I am reluctant to roll out the changes just yet. If you are willing to test the changes that would be really awesome.

It could be as easy as


z /srv/papermc 2775 papermc papermc - -
Z /srv/papermc - papermc papermc - -



u papermc - "PaperMC Server" /srv/papermc -

Whoops, I accidentally deleted my previous comment. Short summary, there is paper.install in, which does not seem to be used. Is that on purpose?

On another note: you might want to consider using sysusers.d and tmpfiles.d for managing the papermc user and the server directory, instead of using the install file, but I can see that it might create some issues with the server jarfile. If it doesn't, it is simpler and seems to be the arch way to go (other server packages do it that way)

@jhogan Yes the license did indeed change and I definitely shouldn't pull it from master. I'll push a fix later today. Thanks for the comments!

jhogan commented on 2020-04-11 08:20

Actually, I see that has changed very recently, after the last AUR update (apologies for misplaced blame):

Should that file be obtained from a specific tag rather than master branch?

As of today I get:

==> Validating source files with sha512sums...
    papermc.1.15.2+b165.jar ... Passed

    papermc-backup.timer ... Passed

    papermc.conf ... Passed ... Passed ... FAILED
==> ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check!

It doesn't look like commit 67ffe26d726d updated the checksum for the LICENSE file?

@HansCz I am sorry as well. My answer should have been more friendly! Content-wise it is still correct, though my choice of words was too harsh. I am sorry about that.

HansCz commented on 2019-10-16 01:01

Sorry for taking up your time with my bad report. I will heed your advice and do better next time.
