You get the error when just running /opt/watcom/binl/wlink, without any parameters? Because that works fine for me.

some parts of this package appear to be broken. For example, if I run binl/wlink then I get an error:

Error! E2000: Error: could not open message resource file.

Looking back at the older comments, appears that this has happened before? The same error is not present in the latest stable release from github

Sure, if you say you need it, I'll include it.

Please don't remove /opt/watcom/binw, it contains stuff needed to build for DOS, like dos4gw.exe and dos32a.exe

@DarkShadow44 yes, thank you

@Thetic Does it work with the new version? Because it does for me.

In version 2.0_2024_03_01-1, wmake is broken:

$ /opt/watcom/binl/wmake
Error: could not open message resource file.

I don't know whether this is a bug or a packaging issue.

Apart from PIE/RELRO this should be fixed now.

Regarding the out of date notification, I'm not exactly sure how I should handle this.

I opened an issue on their github, but currently I can't have a stable link for the latest version, so if I add checksum verification it will break with a new version. I'd prefer for this to not be a real git package though, not sure how to do that unless they also date-tag their latest release. Unless I always use the previous release (which is date-tagged)... How would you recommend dealing with this?

Not sure if missing PIE and RELRO is a problem, there's not much I can do without completely building the package myself. Is that causing issues?

I'll fix the permissions in the next update.

Ah yes, because I thought that was missing. May bad. Anyways, If I clone the git repo as well, I could use the tag for proper git versioning. Not sure if that is best practice though.

I considered this too, I believe cloning the git repo and then not building is unconventional at least.

I also considered building openwatcom locally (making it a real -git package) but that really seems like quite a pain! The compilation is single threaded and takes quite a long time.

I don't really have a good solution to this.
