after a whole bunch of fresh upgrades yesterday, 2012/05/12, I can not unzip
with File Roller (default app), with expanding tar.gz still working.
Here are the two error messages:

Do you want to search for a command to open this file?/*
Do you have the packages 'zip' and 'unzip' installed ?
Then I click on search command button, it brings a new window:

I have no certitude, but I suspect the outdated polkit 0.104 could be the
There is a new 0.105 version since a few weeks on the website:
Following instructions, I was able to build it fine, but I don't want to
make install on my system, as I understand it is a good way to break it.
I decided to create a package following the Archwiki.
Here is my PKGBUILD file :
# Maintainer: Jan de Groot<email@example.com>
pkgdesc="Application development toolkit for controlling system-wide
depends=('glib2' 'pam' 'expat')
makedepends=('intltool' 'gtk-doc' 'gobject-introspection')
make -k check
make DESTDIR="$pkgdir" install
install -m644 "$srcdir/polkit.pam" "$pkgdir/etc/pam.d/polkit-1"
I corrected the old 0.104 one according to the new changes. I have problem
with md5sums, and have no real idea how to write the numbers.
makepkg returns an error :
/*Validating source files with md5sums...
polkit-0.105.tar.gz ... FAILED*/
So 2 questions :
how to deal with this md5sums error?
Once this issue is solved, can I makepkg and install on my system, whitout
TY for any help.
Get the md5sum and replace in your PKGBUILD. You can do this with
'md5sum' or makepkg -g'.
$ md5sum polkit-0.105.tar.gz
$ makepkg -g
==> Retrieving Sources...
-> Found polkit-0.105.tar.gz
-> Found polkit.pam
==> Generating checksums for source files...
File Roller and zips work just fine here and as far as I know polkit has
nothing to do with extracting compressed archives, your problem is
somewhere else. Your hint should be the message "There is no command
installed for Zip archive files." so you want to install zip and unzip
and leave polkit alone.
TY for answers. Will try everything asap.
As for zip and unzip, I have been able to unzip for months before the upgrade, so my first guess was the issue doesn't come from this side.
As for md5sums, let's say I manage to solve this part of PKGBUILD. Just for academic puprose, once PKGBUILD is tested suceessfully, is it sage to install this package this way?
