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.

I'm not able to install this package. The installer gets stuck after printing "Extracting package (this might take several minutes, don't give up!)..."

Have the same issue with "mysql: error group action"

@grufo anyway to bypass it? Or the devs XAMPP have to intervene?

Unfortunately I have the same problem. The sad thing is that the bitrock installer successfully extracts everything until the end, only it crashes when it tries to perform user&group actions. I had hoped this could be solved through fakeuser, and it did actually work on older versions (like XAMPP 5.something), but it fails with the new bitrock installer.

I think the only way to finally solve this is to write to the XAMPP developers asking them to release a normal tgz archive together with their bitrock installer.

I managed to get it working by simply updating proot, here is a working PKGBUILD with latest xampp version (7.2.9). Extraction is still kinda slow.
