@zangoku instead of building this package try the "runelite" package from the aur, or install with the app image from their site or on lutris this one doesn't build for me but "runelite" did just fine, I used "java-8-openjdk" just in case

@nijhanley That does not fix the issue. I am still getting maven errors when trying to update.

@zangoku You need to change your default Java environment. Example: # archlinux-java set java-13-openjdk

Launching the client with JRE 11 or 12 causes a crash in the client with

Inconsistency detected by dl-lookup.c: 111: check_match: Assertion 'version->filename == NULL || ! _dl_name_match_p (version->filename, map)' failed!

Searching around just reveals more people with this issue across Java projects with no resolutions that I've found so far, will comment again if I figure something out. Every single resolution is just "Install Java 8 instead"

The AppImage on works fine, so for anyone else with this issue, don't use the AUR packages for now

RuneLite may not require Java 11 but the launcher does. This package should depend on java-environment>=11. The default Java environment must also be set accordingly but this is probably the user's responsibility.

@ruscur had to make an account to thank you! This needs jre8!

ruscur commented on 2019-07-29 01:15

Hey, why does this require java-runtime>=11? RuneLite works fine with JRE8, and using older versions is recommended on the wiki for working around some GPU bugs. I'm also experiencing a crash with JRE12 that I'm not on JRE8.
