@neilsimp1: That dependency (and others) are in the PKGBUILD, but not rendering in AUR web correctly because it uses an older method of handling per-$CARCH dependencies, instead of depends_x86_64, depends_i686, etc.

I updated it so it should show up correctly now.

This package depends on lib32-libstdc++5.

@MoroS: I believe the id Software FTP was shut down late last year. Google for "RIP"

I updated the mirror.

MoroS commented on 2018-06-13 13:54 (UTC)

Is it just me or is the FTP mirror down? I've got by it eventually downloading the .run file from ModDB (checksum's the same), but trying to connect to id's FTP just hang in there for minutes (trying to connect, not downloading).

Mirror updated to idSoftware's FTP.

download location doesn't work

No, I dont know, I dont played doom3 for about a 3 years :) But I could test it by possibility....

Have you tried the bundled libraries? Do they work? I don't remember why they were removed in the first place, but if they work, then I'll change the PKGBUILD.

vasisualiy commented on 2015-12-13 11:24 (UTC)

The latest Arch News says, that there be a new ABI for libstdc++. The new version of a library has a dual ABI. But there could be a problem if a binary are linked against the libraries, that uses the new one ABI of libstdc++. In this package the bundled libraries are removed. How about the idea to preserve the bundled ones?

That's a good point, I didn't consider that. Thanks for the package again, it's great to revisit these time to time!

As far as I know, this shouldn't have any downsides compared with the original/unpatched source package, unless recompiling it on a modern system with modern compilers gives a performance boost. It's also possible the source release has some fixes never rolled into a Linux patch, but I can't speak to that. I'm not an expert on DooM3 stuff :)

My bad you're correct, I meant that it fetched OK. Is there any downside to this version compared to the GPL one? I'm not sure if there is, but having all the features is nice.

Slash commented on 2013-07-31 23:51 (UTC)

This PKGBUILD doesn't compile anything, it's just the binaries from Id Software for Linux, compiled by them years ago. I would expect that everything should work as originally intended by Id Software. It most definitely has the depth fail shadow code, since Id Software compiled these binaries long before having to figure out a replacement in the GPL release.

hells commented on 2013-07-31 23:33 (UTC)

Still compiles and runs well. Shoudl maybe mention this is not the GPL version and the other package (doom3) is the GPL version. It would help alleviate confusion between this and the other big package. I haven't tested if this version allows Bink videos and Depth fail shadows but the GPL version does not. When I have some time later tonight I will see if the videos work with this and post an update. Thanks for the package!

Compiles and runs without any problems. Thanks.
