Zyn-Fusion installation error

Hey Guys!

I have a problem installing Zyn-Fusion using Octopi. As I understand it can’t install one exact package, even though other parts seem to be installed successfully. Here’s the terminal:

  -> Cloning mruby-zest-build git repo...
Cloning into bare repository '/home/frowyy/.cache/yay/zyn-fusion/mruby-zest-build'...
fatal: unable to access 'https://github.com/mruby-zest/mruby-zest-build.git/': Could not resolve host: github.com
==> ERROR: Failure while downloading mruby-zest-build git repo
error downloading sources: zyn-fusion
Press any key to continue...

Anybody have any suggestions on how to fix this problem?

Hi @frowyy,

I’ve just checked, and while the https://github.com domain works in my Firefox, Vivaldi and even TOR browser, when I try to ping it from the command line it doesn’t work, either:

$ ping https://github.com
ping: https://github.com: Name or service not known

But according to dig it is there:

$ dig https://github.com  

; <<>> DiG 9.16.12 <<>> https://github.com
;; global options: +cmd

So, I’m not 100% sure, obviously, but I alomost think the problem is with them. (Microsoft, AFAIK.)

So what do I need to do now with this command?

Do I need to copy it into the terminal and then try to install the program again?

I almost think you don’t have to, and shouldn’t do anything. I think you’d have to wait for the problems on Microsoft’s side to be resolved, since it doesn’t look as if the problem, whatever it is, seems to be anything you have control, or even influence over. However, I’m no expert and that’s just what it looks like to me.

I just tried installing it with pamac and it did so without a problem:

$ pamac search zyn
ZynAddSubFX with a new interactive UI

Followed by installing it:

$ pamac build zyn-fusion

Transaction successfully finished.

So try it again, perhaps with pamac and see what happens.

Hope this helps!
