Paccheck lists filesystem as broken?

I ran
sudo paccheck --sha256sum --list-broken --recursive
to see if all my packages were okay, but it returned
filesystem
lsb-release
vlc

Is this bad?

lsb-release and filesystem contain the files /etc/lsb-release and /etc/os-release respectively.

We update those files so your system identifies as EndeavourOS. That is why it is showing that those packages have changes.

I have no idea why vlc is showing errors though.

Not necessarily.
You can see the failing files with

sudo paccheck --sha256sum filesystem lsb-release vlc

We know filesystem and lsb-release get EndeavourOS branding changes, so that is OK.

But for vlc I’m not sure. It might be related this this output by pacman:

(4/4) Updating the vlc plugin cache...

Thanks. Will try to figure out why VLC is in there.

Here’s the output of sudo paccheck --sha256sum filesystem lsb-release vlc

filesystem: '/usr/lib/os-release' sha256sum mismatch (expected 46108f7e84f5d5994678133d412d5ec6222c53f28e6bf7ac66cc07788a7ee66d)

Nothing to worry about in that list.

That seems fine. The plugins data is getting updated.

also logical to have a mismatch as we do change them for EndeavourOS original are for archlinux :wink:
