It worked! Thanks!

That's weird. The PKGBUILD is supposed to patch nwlogger_cookie.c to include sys/user.h instead of linux/user.h. You can always try to replace '#include <linux/user.h>' by '#include <sys/user.h>' at the top of the nwlogger_cookie.c file in src/nwlogger/nwlogger.

I was not able to instal. Got this error:

nwlogger/nwlogger_cookie.c:19:10: fatal error: linux/user.h: No such file or directory

After the changes the segfault seems to be gone, so everything works! Thank you for updating this!

I implemented your suggestions and updated the gogdownloader links. As for the segfault, I can't reproduce it. Maybe run it through valgrind or something ?

"Found nothing in"

The nvn-KingmakerSetup seems to be gone from gog. The other two files downloaded fine with lgogdownloader.

Should also probably change the gog: urls to gogdownloader: since that is what most pkgbuilds are using.

There seems to be an issue where partial failed builds leave behind src/icons and attempted rebuilds fail if the directory exists (deleting it makes the next build work):

mkdir: cannot create directory ‘/ms/aur/nwn-gog/src/icons’: File exists

There should be a make-depend here on gcc-multilib for x86_64, since some parts build i686 only (nwmovies, nwuser) despite the package advertising both.

Could also think about making PKGEXT='.pkg.tar' since most of the data in the pkg is already compressed and xz'ing it takes forever.

Finally, after building the package, I get these trying to run it:

ERROR: object './' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded (wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64): ignored.
/usr/bin/nwn: line 28: 24450 Segmentation fault (core dumped) ./nwmain $@

Thanks for updating the package!

Please fix a typo in Description:

Maybe it's worth changing Upstream URL to ?

Updated the PKGBUILD and changed urls for the linux clients, the bioware site seems to be down. If you didn't configure a gog DLAGENT, you can simply put the installer files in the same folder as the PKGBUILD.

Could you please update the PKGBUILD? As mentioned in the "out-of-date": It's a newer version (setup_nwn_diamond_2.1.0.21) with only one *.bin file! Thanks!

vdemin commented on 2016-12-01 08:49

Please update nwuser's SHA:

You shouldn't use the outdated 'if [ "$CARCH" = "x86_64" ]' method for architecture-specific sources, anymore, as it can cause problems for the AUR database and AUR helpers.

Instead, use:

What are you talking about?
Using the gog:// protocol in the source array is the proper way to do it.

It has zero disadvantages compared to using no protocol at all. With no protocol, you would *have* to manually copy the source files into the PKGBUILD directory, and with the protocol you can still do that.

But what you can *also* do now, is to define a custom DLAGENT in /etc/makepkg.conf.
You could define a dlagent that uses lgogdownloader for such URLs, but personally I prefer to use the following dlagent for hib:// and gog:// URLs which finds the files in my ~/download folder and subdirectories thereof:

I also attempted to try to see if I could do anything with the gog:// URIs to no avail. What I eventually ended up doing was using lgogdownloader just to download the neverwinter_nights_diamond_edition folder to my system, I put a quick and dirty HTTP server up (nginx), and then I moved that folder into the HTTP directory, modified the PKGBUILD to point to the local http sources, and then it got me on my way. I ran a makepkg on that modified PKGBUILD and installed with sudo pacman -U.

Whoever decided to use the gog:// URI for source files created a world of headache for anyone attempting to use this package. Luckily, it's still less of a headache than trying to set up NWN for native linux without something like this.

I've been trying to install this via yaourt.
I'm getting the following error:

==> Building and installing package
==> Making package: nwn-gog (Fri Jun 17 19:42:26 CDT 2016)
==> Checking runtime dependencies...
==> Checking buildtime dependencies...
==> Retrieving sources...
==> ERROR: Unknown download protocol: gog
==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build nwn-gog.
==> Restart building nwn-gog ? [y/N]

I have installed lgogdownloader, but this doesn't seem to have helped.

Hi, thanks you very much for this work! I have ported your package to Nix package manager: Some improvements you may want to take back:

1. (-m option to avoid extracting tmp/)
2. (bigger list of things to remove)
3. (video scaling by default, overridable)
