Looks like sourceforge has killed there web source vierwer.

Cork commented on 2015-07-28 17:58

Looks like sourceforge has gone in and "taken over" this project too. All files except the windows installer has been removed from RC2 (and is most likely riddled with adwares).

You can find the old RC1 here, but i can't find the source for RC2 anywhere anymore.

The download link seems to be broken, can someone help me with that?

SanskritFritz commented on 2015-07-16 07:56

That's very kind, thanks.

I must have been blind, thanks. I don't have ssh access temporarily, so may I ask you to update the package as co-maintainer?

Cork commented on 2015-07-16 06:49

SanskritFritz: sure it is

SanskritFritz commented on 2015-07-15 07:45

Cork, thanks. I will look into this. Looks like glfw2 is not yet on AUR4?

Cork commented on 2015-07-13 19:52

Updated PKGBUILD + glfw2.patch for the dependency

alfplayer commented on 2015-01-14 02:39

Using icarito's patch I get the same as SanskritFritz.

SanskritFritz commented on 2014-05-10 20:25

I tried to build, here's what I got:
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lglfw2
Can you help with that?

SanskritFritz commented on 2014-05-10 06:09

Thanks for your findings, will tackle this next week.

icarito commented on 2014-05-10 06:04

Actually I did manage to compile it now, but I had to patch the src/Makefile and change -lglfw for -lglfw2.

Currently it's failing for me to build, with bunch of errors such as:
undefined reference to `glfwDisable'

I tried installing glfw2 package, but I don't know how to link / build against it.

Thanks in advance.

SanskritFritz commented on 2014-01-18 22:49

You missed something, these are already added as dependencies.

sebasmannem commented on 2014-01-18 22:15

You might add dependencies for mesa and sdl_mixer to the PKGBUILD file...

Anonymous comment on 2012-02-01 08:03

Thanks for testing.
I updated the pkgbuild.

SanskritFritz commented on 2012-01-31 21:54

To my great joy, dark-oberon works on 64 bit, so you may modify the PKGBUILD:
arch=('i686' 'x86_64')

Anonymous comment on 2012-01-31 17:14

So, the downloaded tarball always has a different md5-sum. It's not good.
I had to slightly modify the PKGBUILD.

Anonymous comment on 2012-01-31 16:43

Yes, I also noticed this. Can't understand why the md5 has changed.
I'll fix this soon.

And what about x86_64. This is a quoute from the changelog:
> Fixed compiling on 64bit systems (still not runable, sorry).
But I haven't tested it.

SanskritFritz commented on 2012-01-31 16:28

==> Validating source files with md5sums...
dark-oberon.tar.gz ... FAILED

SanskritFritz commented on 2012-01-31 16:23

Sorry didnt read your comment yet, when I posted. Will test tonight, I really hope I'll be able to run it.

SanskritFritz commented on 2012-01-31 16:21

Thanks dear sir. Is it a mistake, or this game is not available for 64 bit?

Anonymous comment on 2012-01-31 16:19

Updated to 1.0.2 RC2.
As far as I know, the game doesn't work on the x86_64. So I didn't add it's support to the PKGBUILD.

Renfield commented on 2010-10-23 23:36

This requires fmod, but the package fmod doesn't exist.

==> dark-oberon dependencies:
- glfw (package found)
- fmod (building from AUR)
