Thank you for taking care of this. By the way, there is no need to make the PKGBUILD file executable.

atari800 has moved from Sourceforge to Github. Current version is 4.0.0

Note that this update only un-sources the copyrighted ROMs and disk images that shouldn't have been packaged here in the first place.

This emulator is able to use r: devices. To enable this fuction add --enable-riodevice to the end of the configure command in the PKGBUILD.

I've looked for 3 days straight to find out how to enable rdevice and I wanted to share my findings. Enjoy!

i'm sorry , but i cant reproduce your error . i can only remind you , from the wiki , at first always pacman -Syyu . and then i say ,check if your yaourt package is broken (it happens last time this summer or so) and install the package manually :
mkdir yaourt
cd yaourt
sudo pacman -U yaourt*.xz

if you got errors , do the same first with the package-query package .
you can do this with nearly all packages . if you forget files like atari800.install (makepkg will remind you .) , then download the tarball .
but without yaourt , you cant vote for a package .)
i must explain some thing about SF and direct linking , pls read this
i dont change the PKGBUILD , because nobody knows when this happens again .
and at the monent everything works fine .
and at last .
when you read the PKGBUILD , you will see
and you will see what really happens
feel free to mail me , share your point of view
excuse my english , im german

Get this message :
Warning: Transient problem: HTTP error Will retry in 3 seconds. 3 retries
Warning: left.
I believe this is because Sourceforge has a 3 second delay before downloading.
Workaround is to download manually and place in src folder.
