You are free to report issues regarding the packaging here: be aware that sometimes the package will fail to build because of outdated upstream and updated dependency, which will require me some time to test and solve the problem; I do also have life stuff, packaging is a free-time activity.

Info regarding the package

The package uses the sources available at:

I am aware of the different clones and branches; I do still believe that this code is acceptable (not affected itself from malware).

As the nw.js toolchain provided by the PopcornTime team can not be proven as non-malware easily, this package uses the official nw.js toolchain provided here:

and uses for additional codecs the prebuilt FFmpeg library provided here:

In addition, the PKGBUILD won't point to the 0.3.10 Git reference but will also include important commits, for e.g. security reasons or providers changes.

@gerardo-junior should be fixed now.

stoped load on start, and no log error with font's

@everyone the issue is caused from my local environment as it is shared between Windows and Linux, so whenever the issue is spotted I need to fix it (AKA dos2unix).

Out of curiosity, how would I find the correct sha512 sum for a bad file in the future? I figure maintainer here will update ASAP, but if I could locate or generate the right one based on an upstream file, I'll know in the future.

The sha512sum for popcorntime.desktop is wrong

servimo commented on 2018-09-02 15:59

Same here: "popcorntime.desktop sha256sums check fail"
