    hi , i recently moved to arch linux

    one of them called xnconvert it's from the AUR repo , however when i trying to download , install it from the package manager I find that the installation process fails
    the output of the installation process is :
    Code:

    What does xnconvert do?
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    The sha256sums are a checksum tool to verify that what you downloaded is what was posted originally on the web site. You may want to download the XnConvert-linux-x64.tgz tarball once again and unzip it before running the checksum on the resulting file, which would be XnConvert-linux-x64.tar

    it means something has changed since the package maintainer created the PKGBUILD with the checksum in it.
    that's what checksums are for.
    it is possible to circumvent checksum checking, but you'd better investigate why it doesn't match anymore.

    aha , so i have downloded the XnConvert-linux-x64.tgz file but when you say " unzip it " you mean extract the .tgz file right ? because if i simply extracted it the resault would be a XnConvert folder so how could i convert .tgz to .tar ?
    * however i have finally find a way to convert .tgz to .tar file

    it doesn't match anymore because the source file has changed.

    YOU need to look at the PKGBUILD, investigate the sources, look for forum posts that might help etc...

    i know nothing about the software you are trying to install.

    however , thanks you very much for your help nihili and the informations
    i think that im only have to change the value of sha256sums in PKGBUILD but have to search the web about just the right value

    -->
    i'll say it one last time:
    you have to investigate WHY the checksums don't match.
