@N_mag the installer direct, gives error with some libraries, it is better to use the package from aur. I just installed it without any problem

Interestingly, I just recently tested the package, all seemed well. The GLX issue might be an upstream issue, or perhaps an issue due to conflicting system libraries and the ones in /opt/hon/lib.
I will disown the package, since I am not using it regularly.

Running the installer itself directly from Frostburn works just fine to me, so although I appreciate the work of the maintainer for this, I don't see why using this script helps anything unless I'm mistaken. Just seems like it just has problems where the normal installer just does it's thing and correctly.

I was able to get this running OK using mrinvisible's method, but when I attempt to run the update (from within the game) it just crashes silently.

==> Validating source files with md5sums...
hon.desktop ... Passed
license ... Passed ... FAILED
==> ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check!
What is this?

I have fixed it. Geneterated code with md5sum, opened PKGBUILD and replaced last code in md5sum with that one. if maintainer could verify that i havent done anything ilegal or something

I am not sure what is the error but I think that either updating before starting (where you might need to grant privilege to access /opt) or in the worst case reinstalling should solve the issue. (The package does not need to be changed at this point.)

Required HON update. I can't login without it.

kaptoxic commented on 2017-02-05 05:15

Should be fixed now.

idk if it is ideal, but could you simply use "" instead of targeting a version to keep the package up-to-date, or would that mess with the script too much?
