Likely considered the original report invalid due to inetutils being in the base group. Not the case anymore with the new base meta package, PKGBUILD updated

I, too, got the 'Micropolis: error in TCL code: couldn't find "hostname" to execute' error that another user reported.

The solution is to install inetutils which provides the hostname command. The AUR package should be updated to reflect this dependency.

Ok. If you agree, we can delete our comments on this topic to keep Comments clean. Please don't forget to update the Upstream URL and thanks for your work.

There's multiple implementations of micropolis in the same source

The one built on this is the regular Linux one, micropolis-activity

Where do you get such a silly idea it connects to Facebook? It doesn't. I will update the upstream tomorrow, thank you for that

t-ask commented on 2015-08-03 12:42

This game seems to connect with "Facebook API". It might be good to add this to the description and please update the Upstream URL to "".

I had build failure because it couldn't find /usr/bin/yacc on my system. Adding bison to makedepends fixed it.

you can replace he 0 in version and pkgver for any number but the .git is for versioning concistency
