Fixed. Worked yesterday. Not sure what they did there upstream.

Please add this sha512sum instead of the first one and it will work:

Isn't the sha512sum wrong?

Updated to 2.13.0.
  • Target "dir" patch adjusted
  • Added new patch to make building for seperate arches possible.

I really don't like the way this builds right now. It's a huge "one-click builds everything" giant with 870 npm dependencies.

When I have the time, I'll look into this matter with the goal to just deliver the .asar application and use it with system electron.

Edit: Please note that they have changes the user-dir upstream. This means that your existing configuration which is under ~/.config/Rocket.Chat+ is not used anymore. The new patch is ~/.config/Rocket.Chat (missing +)

@dvatate yes, this is a know issue.

It is solved with glibc-2.28-4, please update your packages, it is on the core repository now and should run fine.

Just to be sure, recompile rocketchat after updating glibc!

for some reason this segfaults when i try to run it. I've also tried rocketchat-client-bin and it does the same. Any ideas on why this could be?

Did a small update.

  • snap and AppImage packages are not build anymore.
  • The rocketchat-desktop.desktop file is not properly placed.

I also though about using the systems electron instead of providing it's own. This would save more than 100 MiB in installed size!

Let me know what you think.

I updated the package to 2.12.1, which includes only one fix:

Also, I removed the pinned glibc version, because 2.28-4 (in testing) is working and downgrading it is highly discouraged.

The new build process only builds the required architecture, not both as before, and skips the github publishing process which is (always) inevitably failing.
