Please refrain from flagging the git version as out date when a new release comes out. The git aur packages update their version on install time based on the tags of the git repo.

Keep in mind that this is a VCS package and it is meant to be in line with the latest master which might not always work. It is not meant to follow the release pattern in any particularly smart way and assumes that upstream maintains their tags consistently.

For the newest release, the correct page is

Updated for submodule and plugins.cfg.
I don't know about your Zip problem and I'd be interested to know if anyone else has this issue.
Make sure you have zip and unzip installed.

When running pkgbuild without any source files present(doing a git clone rather than git pull) compilation failed, complaining that openmw/extern/shiny/Main/Factory.hpp was missing. Turns out openmw/extern/shiny is a submodule in openmw git repo, so it has to be initialized and then updated:

cd "$srcdir"
git clone "$_gitroot" "$_gitname"
cd "$_gitname"
git submodule update --init

It's also explained here:

Also with this commit the openmw/files/plugins.conf* files were removed:

So I had to delete this line from PKGBUILD:
install -m644 plugins.cfg "$pkgdir"/etc/openmw/

Also openmw.cfg.install was renamed into openmw.cfg a while back, hence I changed this line:
install -m644 openmw.cfg "$pkgdir"/etc/openmw/openmw.cfg

I'm not sure if it was the correct way to do it, but the game compiles now.
When I try to run it, though, I get:

ERROR: OGRE EXCEPTION(7:InternalErrorException): /home/budulay_arch/./resources/mygui/ - error whilst opening archive: Unable to read zip file. in ZipArchive::checkZzipError at /build/src/ogre_src_v1-8-0/OgreMain/src/OgreZip.cpp (line 297)

Doint a web search on the error message reveals plenty of results, none of them related to openmw, though. At this point I have no clue where to go from here.
I am wandering if anyone else got this error, and if they were able to fix it.

Boost 1.50.0 released, deps updated.

bwrsandman commented on 2012-07-13 12:24

Won't compile due to a bug in boost 1.49.0-2
Waiting for 1.50.0 to be available in [Extra] to update PKGBUILD.
In the meantime, this post explains how to fix boost. This will let you compile openmw-git.

Please change the pkgbuild to install new files transparency-overrides.cfg and settings-default.cfg (see the main CMakeLists.txt file)

I think, that line 31 in PKGBUILD don't need. Of course, I can be mistaken.
