Ncurses update from today fixed the issue again:

ncurses 6.0+20170902-3 (works)
ncurses 6.0+20170902-2 (does not work)

If your core repo isn't up to date yet, you could manually download the most current ncurses package and install manually with pacman -U <pkgname>.

Hm, looks like ncurses was updated 7 days ago ( and that seems to break the package. I'll have a look.

make: *** [Makefile:126:bam_tview_curses.o] error 1

Compiled failed!

Hele me, please!
Thanks very much!

Yes, this worked fine for me too, when the PKGBUILD was updated five days ago. However, I just tested again for you, and now it doesn't verify. I'm getting 4860d6a8f85c6965a7e82fb11afbde13

Maybe they changed the uploaded file? It did for me ~2 days ago!

the checksum here isn't verifying for me

Thanks for letting me know, updated pkgrel.

Recent update to ncurses seems to break samtools:

samtools: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

@MikeDacre: Done. Package now includes headers.
