The GUI label is intentionally 2.2.4, this is related to it being a Linux-only launcher update, sorry if this causes any confusion

grawity commented on 2017-09-11 17:26

Note: It is important to keep PGP signature verification enabled, because this PKGBUILD does not verify sha256sums due to Jagex frequently releasing rebuilds with the same version number.

Don't forget to import the Jagex PGP key if installing for the first time:

gpg --keyserver hkps:// --recv-key AAC9264309E4D717441DB9527373B12CE03BEB4B

mrgreenacid -- Thanks for your suggestion. Switching to the LTS kernel somewhat improves performance, but it is by no means as smooth as it was when I started playing again several months ago.

sudoforge - I also experienced this issue after updating yesterday. I switched to linux-lts which resolves the issue for now.

Performance has completely and utterly tanked for me after a recent system update. Running around invokes heavy CPU spikes and stalls the game client.

Is anyone else experiencing this?

Some random specs that may or may not be helpful:

on manjaro installed without a problem. when i run it i get

There was an error loading the game configuration from the website. If you have a firewall, check that this program is allowed to access the Internet. (7,28)

my firewall is off. what could be the problem?

Thank you for the package update. Sorry for the annoyance

akya commented on 2020-11-24 17:02

Getting this -

curl: (22) The requested URL returned error: 404 Not found
==> ERROR: Failure while downloading

@posuceius: 1) What was the exact command that you used to import the key? 2) What was its output? 3) What is the exact command that you're using to build the package?

posuceius commented on 2020-11-09 01:40

Importing the key did not work for me:

==> ERROR: PGP signature of 'Release' could not be verified
gpg: Signature made Wed 28 Oct 2020 21:38:14 AEST
gpg:                using RSA key AAC9264309E4D717441DB9527373B12CE03BEB4B
gpg: Can't check signature: No public key
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in prepare().

Am I doing something wrong?

The openssl 1.0 workaround should not be needed any more, we resolved the build machine issue that allowed that to creep back in

grawity commented on 2020-08-06 19:05

@gameslayer: Could you change echo "$_out" | grep -v "^\\[GNUPG:\\]" to simply echo "$_out", then run it again and provide the additional output?
