I apologize to all who have wanted this package updated. Due to life circumstances I no longer have the time or desire to keep this package maintained. Hosiet your orphan request was justified. Thank you all

Hello all, this is the maintainer of package gmchess in Debian.

This package in AUR is broken for ages and it might be better if we fix it soon.

japernilater, are you going to fix it recently? If not, I'm considering submitting orphaning request within 2 weeks.

Thanks, Boyuan Yang

@tklee Agreed. I also got a 404. Editing PKGBUILD...

tklee commented on 2016-09-11 04:22

Can we update the source URL to ?

I'm thinking that something has changed in the makepkg script not alowing it to packaged from the PKGBUILD I had submitted. It used to work just fine. I have modified the PKGBUILD to that it now builds correctly. Also, I have moved the location of the .png file for the icon so the game can be seen properly in the menu of the desktop environment. If there is any problems please let me know. Thank you

But when I tried it in my laptop which is a 64-bit linux system, it work very well, no sagmentation fault at all!

I encountered "segmentation fault (core dumped)" here. after about 5 minutes, it would close itself suddenly .

Hi everyone, I just adopted this package. I am fairly new to the package maintaining so if you have any problems with this package please contact me. I have made the changes requested by crose and Auguste to this PKGBUILD. If you have any suggestions to make it work better I will incorporate them into the PKGBUILD file. I have this game working fine on my computer right now but that does not guarentee it will work fine on your computer. If it doesn't work for you and you get it working by modifying the PKGBUILD please let me know so I can update it asap. Thank you and enjoy!!!

using of $startdir is deprecated and strongly discouraged now. we can use $srcdir and $pkgdir instead.

"|| return 1" is no longer needed. makepkg will check the exit values.
