I've updated this package to 6.0pre8 at

I've also removed some of the dependencies as they are not in use when we build with the current configuration.

Secondly, I'd like to suggest splitting this package into multiple OMNeT++ packages as long as there is a stable and preview branch. There are plenty of users tied to OMNeT++ 5.X, as it is the latest stable. With that, I'd suggest renaming two parts of the name. Firstly, the TkEnv is deprecated, and as such, I believe we can remove that from the package name. Secondly, we can rename this package to omnetpp-preview or omnetpp-pre, while creating a new package omnetpp with pkgver 5.6.2.

On the note of INET: while the Eclipse-based IDE suggests that you compile INET on start-up, it does this by creating a new project for INET. I'm not sure there are overall benefits to creating a PKGBUILD for a project used as a dependency by a multitude of frameworks (such as RINASim). Still, I could very well be failing to understand the context in which you'd have a PKGBUILD for INET.

Hi, the blt dependency is no longer needed since OMNeT++ 4.5 (June 2014). See here:

I feel like it could be useful to have a separate package for the inet framework and have this package depend on it, because OMNET++ downloads and compiles inet at startup. A package would allow more tweaks during the compilation. I'm not sure if OMNET++ and inet are very independent, though.

You can find here a patch for 6.0pre5.
- update to 6.0pre5,
- update jdk8-openjdk to jdk-openjdk,
- improve the download url,
- clean trailing whitespaces in PKGBUILD.

@jtlobdell thanks for the heads up, links are updated, and now it's possible to directly download the binary from makepkg.

OMNeT++ has a new website now. For details:

The new URL for the source is:

@BenderIsGreat34 thanks for the proposed fix, latest version includes the fix.

@nakanoXF did you manually download the binary file as described in PKGBUILD? I just download it now and sha512sum is still the same.
