==> Extracting package (this might take several minutes, don't give up!)... proot info: pid 19813: terminated with signal 11 ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package(). Aborting... Error making: xampp

Just for information and for people who want a working xampp (but without using aur) here a working procedure until we have a fix on the pkgbuild :

It's strange. In the current PKGBUILD, inside the prepare() function, there is a line,

# Against proot error `proot info: pid XXXX: terminated with signal 11`

which does exactly that. Doing

proot -0 -b "${pkgdir}/opt/lampp:/opt/lampp" etc....

should be exactly the same as doing

PROOT_NO_SECCOMP=1 proot -0 -b "${pkgdir}/opt/lampp:/opt/lampp" etc....

as you suggest. However this package is in need of a fix. Right now nobody can install XAMPP from a PKGBUILD.

I was getting an sha1sum fail on proot install ( and some directory issues. this PKGBUILD resolved:

changes lines 4,16,20

Also, terminate with signal 11 from proot during build. Changing line 80 of the xampp PKGBUILD from

proot -0 -b "${pkgdir}/opt/lampp:/opt/lampp" "${srcdir}/${pkgname}-linux-x64-${pkgver}" \


PROOT_NO_SECCOMP=1 proot -0 -b "${pkgdir}/opt/lampp:/opt/lampp" "${srcdir}/${pkgname}-linux-x64-${pkgver}" \

fixed the issue for me.

I still get the hanging forever as others have described, though.

Hey, is there a solution for the infinite "Extracting package (this might take several minutes, don't give up!)..." problem?

I tried several times to install it on my Manjaro testing. During installation, the compilation is blocked at level : "Extracting package (this might take several minutes, don't give up!)..." The program has been on for about three hours at this stage. I don't understand anything anymore and I don't see anything to change in the build package. Here the pastebin: Does anyone have a solution?

Edit: Sorry, I didn't see that others had the same problem.

@grufo I'm still getting the same error "mysql: Error while executing group action" as well, is there any fix to it ?

Thank you for contribution. But unfortunately, again, despite this might work with you, I keep getting the message “mysql: Error while executing group action”.

However I have updated the PKGBUILD merging your contribution.

Again, here is a working PKGBUILD with latest xampp version (7.3.2). There seems to be some kind of problems with commit 0d02e72, but I don't know what's wrong. I've also changed the download link to the SourceForge one, since the old one doesn't work.
