!!! Please do NOT flag the package out of date just because a new version has been release. !!!

Parsec self-updates and as long as the package still installs (no sha256 mismatch), there is no reason to update it in the AUR as the .deb actually is an older version.

@sauyon Fair point. Something I could have thought of myself. Updated and pushed

For those having the sha256sum issue, try to find the "parsec-linux.deb" file on your system and remove it from the caches.

FWIW I like adding the version number to the name of the downloaded file, since it gets around this issue and it makes it a bit easier to tell when building manually too.

Is the downgrading to mesa<=18.0.4 still the only solution to avoid the libsndio.so.6.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory error?

what worked for me in locating the file was find . -name "parsec*"

the fd command gave me no output for some reason.

For me, pamac was caching the deb file, because pacman -Sc did not help. I used the tool fd to find it.

>>> fd parsec-linux.deb /
/var/tmp/pamac-build-yulian/parsec-bin/parsec-linux.deb

After I removed the parsec-linux.deb file from that tmp folder for pamac, it all worked swimmingly. It might be in a different place for your preferred package tool, or distro.

@usernamerequired If you are using yay (or an other AUR helper) it might be possible that it doesn't download the new parsec-linux.deb file.

If you git clone it in a totaly new folder/thing it works fine, because parsec-linux.deb doesn't already exist so it downloads the newer version.

This is only my assumption, but for the moment, I upgrade parsec-bin manually.

-> Found parsec-linux.deb ==> Validating source_x86_64 files with sha256sums... parsec-linux.deb ... FAILED ==> ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check! Failed to build parsec-bin

i checked the sha256 and the seem to be correct, dont know whats the hiccup here.

The sha256 sum doesn't match anymore, pacaur refuses to install it as is.

Edit: Nevermind! Thanks :)

@erkexzcx Forgot to reply yesterday, sorry.
The .deb package can't have changed as otherwise the sha256 sum wouldn't match anymore.
I agree that parsecgaming could do a better job with providing versioned .deb packages but as they don't we have to work with what we've got.

In regards to automatically updating the PKGBUILD, I think that's a bad idea. I'd rather have a final look at what changed rather then automatic the process.
Whenever there's a new version and I miss to update, just flag the package out-of-date and I usually get to it within 1-2 hours (unless I'm in bed)
