I'm not really okay with this being just a bare binary stuffed on Archive.org. At the very least I'd like to see the whole tarball including the license (which is actually required for Arch packages to include!), and coming back with the same checksum as the one that was last officially posted would be a huge plus. Otherwise there is basically no way to verify that you didn't wrap it with a backdoor in the binary or some nonsense like that.

@flyingpig: could you upload release notes, eula and the other things to archive.org so that we will have a "stable" link in the PKGBUILD?

I noticed that the archive link posted only contains the binary. If anyone is interested, here is the old KindleGen 2.9 tarball which contains the release notes, EULA, and more: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1nv9JQ7E7z3ogZu4QMcs0pBOr4YlKTWqL/view

I have problems previewing the tarball without a Google account, but downloads should work fine.

@Nomeji adopted and fixed.

If anyone is looking for the file, I've got it from an old hard drive.

You can get it from here : https://archive.org/details/kindlegen

Could be nice to make the PKGBUILD download from here as well.

Unfortunately the link is now broken.

Thanks. Updated the PKGBUILD to fix these issues.

Slightly modified PKGBUILD, since the layout of the tar file changed and it wouldn't build for me: http://pastebin.com/JR9ZhfEK

Incorret MD5SUM: 746cc4b632f8a7b4ca23cfc46f6715c3

replace line 12 in PKGBUILD with this:
md5sums=('21aef3c8846946203e178c83a37beba1')

Updated the PKGBUILD using val-amart's changes.
