To be clear, nvidia users need to enable both foldingathome.service and foldingathome-nvidia.service.

Downloading the file first still isn't working, sorry.

The download error is caused by a certificate error on Stanford's servers. If you manually download the file, it should build with no problems.

I put together a systemd script and uploaded it to here -->
Copy it to /etc/systemd/system/foldingathome-v7.service and tell me if it works before I add it to the package.

Also, the file doesn't download for me (x86_64); see error:

Can you add a systemd script (since rc.d scripts are being phased out)?

I fixed up the PKGBUILD so it should work with i686 and x86_64 with out any issues.
Let me know if there are any more problems.

There's a way to avoid '--skipinteg', changing the last (32bit) md5sum to the 64bit md5sum. Worked as a charm. :-)

I'm not sure if this works for i686 people flawlessly, but my pkgbuild is here:

Thank you.

Edit PKGBUILD and change i686 to x86_64 and 32bit to 64bit or vise versa and build with makepkg --skipinteg

I don't know exactly what is wrong with the PKGBUILD, but this seems to work.

Even using a downloaded tarball from Stanford:

If makepkg complains about a ssl certificate error, please manually download the package from Stanford and try again.

Added i686 support
