It seems this is now broken by the recent renaming of the KDE packages in the repos

:: installing karchive5 (5.111.0-1) breaks dependency 'karchive' required by freeciv21

Thanks for updating!

Thanks a lot for your feedback. Highly appreciate it. I have implemented the suggestions.

Yes, Karchive is indeed a dependency, my bad. Thanks a lot for the chroot trick, really useful.

  • _basename is a pointless custom variable (same as pkgname) and can be removed
  • you're skipping integrity check which is a bad packaging practice
  • please rename the source with $pkgname-$pkgver.tar.gz:: to be non-conflicting (especially for users of shared source destination)
  • python and karchive are missing from makedepends (karchive is detected by namcap as dependency of freeciv21-server binary [not tested]) .You're welcome to build in a clean chroot before uploading to ensuring needed depends and makedepends are met, for convenience using extra-x86_64-build from devtools package
