Failed to build tclkit

Hello there,
Recently, I was trying to install the XAMPP control panel for my college project.
But when I was trying to build it from AUR, it shows failed to build tclkit.
Any help?

According to the AUR page of XAAMP
tclkit is a build dependency
To me that means it isn’t built
but needs to be present for the build to work.

How did you go about trying to build XAAMP?

build and install tclkit before xaamp

i had the same problem while installing XAMPP, it looks like the md5sum for tcl.tar.gz was wrong:

==> Validating source files with md5sums...
    8.6.4-9.tar.gz ... Passed
    tk.tar.gz ... Passed
    tcl.tar.gz ... FAILED
==> ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check!

The way i went about fixing it was installing tclkit separately first and replacing the md5sum in the PKGBUILD file (Under the “Build Files” tab of ) with SKIP so that this:


became this:


After building that i tried building XAMPP again, but this time it failed to download sdx due to an ssl problem:

curl: (60) SSL certificate problem: unable to get local issuer certificate
More details here:

curl failed to verify the legitimacy of the server and therefore could not
establish a secure connection to it. To learn more about this situation and
how to fix it, please visit the web page mentioned above.
==> ERROR: Failure while downloading

to solve this i just decided to install sdx separately and change the source url from HTTPS to HTTP in the PKGBUILD file so that this:


became this:


Once i built that i was able to build XAMPP without problem, i hope i could be of help! if you wanted to know how to fix problems with PKGBUILD files like these, Brodie Robertson has a great video on the basics of PKGBUILD files if you had the time to watch it!
