URL has been made new: http://zerowing.idsoftware.com/linux/etqw/ETQWFrontPage/

For something like this would it be better to keep the pkgver and pkgrel? I thought this since the filesystem hasn't changed.

Slash commented on 2013-09-02 19:48

I updated the PKGBUILD with a working mirror.

I had a problem installing this, it said the md5sum check failed. I'm guessing the URL for ETQW-client-1.5-linux.x86.run broke?

Slash commented on 2012-09-11 18:05

Oops, sorry, it's fixed now.

Also, due to the changed filename, the line

sh -c "unzip -o $srcdir/ETQW-client-${pkgver}-full.x86.run -d $srcdir/ data/*; true"

in the pkgbuild should be changed to ........ETQW-client-${pkgver}-linux.x86.run ......
in order to reflect the changed filename.

Thanks, I updated the mirror.

I've come across the same problem that maddog39 described: the FTP server is not allowing anonymous connections, so the link to the client binaries needs updating. To anyone with the same problem, I used this source instead: http://www.altfire.com/main/files/Gaming/Games/Quake%20Wars/ETQW-client-1.5-linux.x86.run

The FTP is working for me now, perhaps there were issues earlier.

Anonymous comment on 2011-05-05 05:32

The download link is dead, FTP server apparently no longer accepts anonymous connections. Needs to be updated.

Updated to fix the below issues

Please also provide a script for etqw-rthread in /usr/bin not only for etqw. Thanks.

@j2quinn
i got the same problem, thanks for advice.

Anonymous comment on 2010-11-13 23:47

nvm. i found i had to unzip the .run file myself then move to src directory and comment out the unzip command in the PKGBUILD to get the makepkg work.

I get an error with any ETQW-client-.1.5-full.x86.run files i use. Something about extra bytes in the file. the PKGBUILD then aborts operations. Any ideas?

Here I found a Link: ftp://ftp.i3d.net/Games/Enemy%20Territory%20Quake%20Wars/Patches/ETQW-client-1.5-full.x86.run

Thanks a lot for the link and the advice.

Slash commented on 2010-05-19 22:58

@ajbader: The file is not included because there is no working mirror available to directly link to, sorry. You will have to download it manually (http://www.fileplanet.com/183846/download/) and place it in the same directory as the PKGBUILD before running "makepkg". If I can find a working mirror, I will update the PKGBUILD.

Broken:

ETQW-client-1.5-full.x86.run was not found in the build directory and is not a URL.

The source in there (ETQW-client-1.5-full.x86.run) does not exist!
