I've the same issue like @unixbrain now. Did anyone else had the problem and found a solution to this?

Edit: The dangling symlink problem can be solved by inserting `rm -f ${pkgdir}/${_ipath}/lib/` in line 202 before `chmod 755 ${pkgdir}/${_ipath}/lib/*`. See here:

Checked again and I have no problems with the download.

You can use my google drive's upload:

Download amdapp-sdk sources snapshot and untar it, then create 'src' directory next to PKGBUILD and paste downloaded AMD-APP-SDKInstaller-v3.0.130.136-GA-linux64.tar.bz2 file into that dir. Then you can use makepkg to build package.

The download keeps failing for me - and it has been like this continually for months...

Saving to: ‘AMD-APP-SDKInstaller-v3.0.130.136-GA-linux64.tar.bz2’

AMD-APP-SDKInstaller-v3.0.130 12%[=====> ] 23.98M 1.04MB/s in 25s

2016-07-19 10:57:38 (994 KB/s) - Connection closed at byte 25149440. Retrying.

It always gets to about 12%, then resets. It ultimately tries 3 times then dies. Presumably there is some cvnty stuff AMD has put in somewhere to detect something, but as I haven't seen others complain either no one is using us, or it isn't affecting them.

Any ideas on this? It certainly isn't my connection, etc. as nothing else exhibits this behaviour, and as stated it has been like this for 100+ attempts over a period of months.

sorry for the delay

updated, should be fine, funny thing is that lib directory structure for i686 and x86_64 is not same (thats why path in icd differs)

chmod: cannot operate on dangling symlink '/home/alex/amdapp-sdk/pkg/amdapp-sdk-nocatalyst/opt/AMDAPP/SDK/lib/'

help? I followed chris64's suggestions.

There's a new release AMD-APP-SDKInstaller-v3.0.130.136-GA from 3/23/2016 with sha256sum 181fb9815e735c90ca5713acc27a6f9ed7f85135d2f2a085bed7b4c7ed157b94 (32 bit) and 0aa436acd334b686820bd3caab9f09014608741b92e3996d3642d0b148ede0f7 (64 bit). This explains the download failure. Thank you Vi0L0 for your efforts. :-)

Amendment: I had to change `amd.icd` from /PATH/lib/ to /PATH/lib/sdk/ in order to make it work again.

@Vi0L0 I'm afraid the automated download is broken. The script referenced by @wallnuss works but it's downloaded tarball doesn't match the checksum.

Vi0L0 commented on 2016-01-20 13:31

@wallnuss: I used suggested code in
Then I started working on this package and recall that kralyk once was working on such an idea, so I took his code and used it here :).

Thank you guys.

I was thinking long time about it, I'm still not sure is it clear and can we really use such a download scritps. But oh well, its already popular anyway :P

For automated downloads you can use this script:

Downloads are broken as AMD now requires accepting a license agreement.
