hey i made some changes, feel free to merge/use it.

derhamster commented on 2013-02-01 17:09

The first one is quite obvious... how would makepkg be able to find it else? Did you try without changing the PKGBUILD?

EnigmaCurry commented on 2013-02-01 16:34

Using packer I had to do the following to get this to install:

* copy the .tar.gz to the build dir (eg. /tmp/packerbuild-1000/ftl/ftl)
* edit the PKGBUILD replacing `"$_gamepkg"::"file://$_gamepkg"' with just `$_gamepkg' (no quotes)

the correct set of licenses is as follows:

"all rights reserved" or "unlicensed" for FTL itsels
"Boost-1.0" and "MIT" for a RapidXML header that was used
free-noncomm (bundled libbass)
FTL (this is a license name ;) ...for bundled freetype)
LGPL-2.1 (bundled devil and libsdl)
ZLIB (bundled zlib)
libpng (bundled libpng12)

@gColossus - Copy your ftl_faster_than_light-linux-1.03.1.tar.gz (downloaded from the link that should have been sent to you via email from the ftlgame site when you bought it, looks like to the startdirectory before running makepkg.

I literally just ran into the same issue trying to install it via yaourt. I found the solution and saw your post in the last comments when I started the install (in case you plan to use yaourt, you'll have to run the command (yaourt -S ftl) and then copy the file to /tmp/yaourt-tmp-YOURUSER/aur-ftl/ before actually starting the install so that it creates the directory).

Anyway, hope that helps, I'm off to play it now :) .

Fixed a mistake - forgot to remove my username from the file location - it should have yours, not mine.

There seems to be a special character in the url that causes makepkg to break:

[colossus@colossus-arch ftl]$ makepkg -cs PKGBUILD
==> Making package: ftl 1.03.1-1 (Sun Dec 30 10:39:05 PST 2012)
==> Checking runtime dependencies...

Oh and you should also explicitly create /var/lib/mpd the same way you create the playlists folder, so that the mpd user owns it and has write access inside.

Updated to version 1.03.1

The new PKGBUILD does not install libstdc++. The system version is used instead, which should fix some problems (see some comments below)

@dcelasun: In general I agree. But FTL comes as a prebuilt binary and think it's better to just use the libraries it was built against and tested with. Besides, this makes maintenance much easier for me. Sorry if FTL doesn't work for you this way. Maybe open a thread on the forums to solve this.

@hasufell: When I created this package, I couldn't find any license information either. I guess you're right about "all rights reserved". But IANAL...

hasufell commented on 2012-12-24 23:12

Any1 knows the correct license for this? There is no license file in the tarball, just for the libraries. No info on the website either.

Afaik that means "unlicensed" which means "all rights reserved". Or am I missing something.
