Updated the url, the package should build now.

As others have reported, I'm also facing the same issue:

vmware-bundle.eclass-2106.1 ... FAILED

Looks like now redirects to (Not sure why this change) Due to this, line 33 in PKGBUILD returns an HTML file which is nothing but the page So if line 33 in PKGBUILD is changed to the following


and the SHA256 sum is updated, we should be good.

Downloaded vmware-bundle.eclass-2106.1 is an HTML file.

Thanks for the workaround, @nihalani. The workaround given by @nihalani works fine. I was confused on the usage of --mflags --skipint and tried it in mine which did not work. So, I cloned the git repo and changed the source in PKGBUILD and built and installed using command makepkg -si --skipinteg

Oof this was a weird error: basically, for some reason, the eclass url is now returning a webpage. I took at the webpage in the html format and its the homescreen of the gentoo git page, ie the file wasn't found. In the PKGBUILD you need to update the source of the eclass file


I found that "vmware-bundle.eclass-${pkgver}::" works

Once you have that the shasums are invalid so I had also to use the --mflags --skipint to skip that shasum checks.

Have you considering using the tarball version (instead of the installer bundle). It simplifies the PKGBUILD a lot and reduces the effort for someone to verify that it's not malicious. I ended up building my own just for the client, let me know if you'd like help finishing the rest.


prepare() {
    cd "${srcdir}/VMware-Horizon-Client-Linux-${pkgver}-${build}/x64/"
    tar xzvf VMware-Horizon-Client-${pkgver}-${build}.x64.tar.gz
    tar xzvf VMware-Horizon-PCoIP-${pkgver}-${build}.x64.tar.gz

package() {
    mkdir -p "${pkgdir}/usr/share/"
    cd "${srcdir}/VMware-Horizon-Client-Linux-${pkgver}-${build}/x64/VMware-Horizon-Client-${pkgver}-${build}.x64"
    cp -a bin "${pkgdir}/usr/"
    cp -a lib "${pkgdir}/usr/"
    cp -a doc "${pkgdir}/usr/share/"
    cp -a share/locale "$pkgdir/usr/share/"
    cd "${srcdir}/VMware-Horizon-Client-Linux-${pkgver}-${build}/x64/VMware-Horizon-PCoIP-${pkgver}-${build}.x64"
    cp -a lib "${pkgdir}/usr/"

@eworm, sorry my mistake, looks like it was the cache, thank you!

eworm commented on 2021-07-21 13:45

Works for me... Possibly you have an old vmware-bundle.eclass file in your source cache?
