I noticed after a fresh install, tries to download server files into /opt/quake, should this be writeable by default, or the default output folder changed to within home? Thanks for the neat package

Hi) yay building error

src/common.h:40:10: fatal error: protocol.h: No such file or directory

but this works, why?

cd /tmp && wget '' && tar zxvf ezquake.tar.gz && cd ezquake/ && makepkg

I have installed this package with yay, all works ok except saving the game and options configuration. Please advise the proper way to fix this. My thought is the game lacks its folder in the user's folder, or permissions are corrupted somehow.

Package fails to build in a clean chroot with devtools:

install: invalid group ‘users’

@debermond @sanerb Thanks! I updated the PKGBUILD with the patch and removed the gcc9 stuff.

@debermond - thank you!

I'll let Slash review and decide if they want to apply it or not.


If you do apply the patch, you should remove gcc9 from the makedepends and remove the CC="gcc-9" from the make line.

To the maintainers:

I have prepared a patch for gcc10:

Hey all! The co-maintainer (and maintainer of ezquake-git) here.

As mentioned below in the comments, Arch's default GCC is now GCC 10.x. Unfortunately, the latest stable release of EZQuake does not build on GCC 10.x. The ezquake-git package will, but not this one.

In order to build the stable release, you have to first install the "gcc9" package. It's currently in the [community-testing] repository.

If you'd rather not enable the entire community-testing repository (and for good reason, to be frank), you can install the packages individually. The below URLs use my own Arch mirror, so replace with your preferred mirror (which I recommend unless you're on the East coast of the US, in which case my mirror is ranked pretty high).

mkdir -p /tmp/pkg
cd /tmp/pkg
wget  # probably not needed?
sudo pacman -U gcc9-*.zst

and then you can makepkg this package properly.

@Slash- remember to remove "gcc9" from the makedeps once they have a new stable release, because I probably won't remember. ;)

Hey, it's the ezquake-git packager here. You can force use of GCC 9.x by adding "gcc9" to the makedepends (it's in community-testing repo currently), and then changing your "make" on line 29 in the PKGBUILD to:

make CC="gcc-9"

and that should do it. Untested, but let me know how it works.

EDIT: confirmed. You have me as co-maintainer so I'm updating and will sticky a notice to install GCC9 from community if they run into dep issues.

Slash commented on 2020-05-30 23:01 (UTC)

Apologies, I usually update my Arch installs bi-weekly, but I skipped a week, so I was still running GCC 9. Now that I am upgraded to GCC 10 I can't build it anymore. Using ezquake-git is probably the best idea right now until someone makes a patch for version 3.2.
