Thanks for the heads up, @dither8. Fixed.

Looks like upstream commit (f8d860d7727ec6c7f8eed2d9e4cf9f83725d17a0) fixes documentation location issue.

Line 51: mv "${pkgdir}/usr/man" "${pkgdir}/usr/share/man" Now causes build to fail.

Great! :) I'll leave my comment if something is wrong. R.

Thanks for the consideration, gonciarz! I've uploaded openxcom-extended and openxcom-extended-git to the AUR. Please check them out and let me know if there are any problems.

Hi WorMzy,

Recently I've found an interesting fork OpenXcome called OXCE.

Mod info:

OG (original game) vs OXC (OpenXcom) vs OXCE (OpenXcom Extended):,5251.0.html

I believe it would be great if a new package could be created e.g. openxcom-oxce or something similar. You already are an author of openxcom and openxcom-git ArchLinux packages thus from my point of view you would be the best candidate to become an author of oxce.

Compilation process is exactly the same as for openxcom-git.

Thanks, Drenn. I've pushed an updated PKGBUILD with the changes you suggested.

It looks like this compiles a dev build. The following change to line 26 should enable release build optimizations: cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX="/usr" -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE="Release" -DDEV_BUILD="OFF" See also this:

yaml-cpp51 package uploaded, and PKGBUILD updated to make sure it build and links against the working library.

WorMzy commented on 2015-04-21 00:11 (UTC)

Can confirm this, and the workaround. I'll see if I can find time to cobble together and upload a yaml-cpp51 package tomorrow (later today here).

Looks like latest yaml-cpp from official repos isn't playing nice with openxcom. If you are having problems with "failed to load Ruleset" error, downgrade yaml-cpp to 0.5.1 and compile again. More info [no https]:

WorMzy commented on 2014-07-26 20:07 (UTC)

Please report it to upstream so it can get fixed. :)

docwild commented on 2014-07-26 20:01 (UTC)

I had to add --disable-werror to the configure line to get this to build due to an unused variable.

WorMzy commented on 2014-03-09 02:56 (UTC)

Hi, Please fix your PKGBUILD to comply with pacman/makepkg 4.1 VCS standards [1]. I have uploaded a compliant PKGBUILD here [2], which you can feel free to use. If you have lost interest in maintaining this package, I would be more than happy to take over maintaining it. Cheers, WorMzy [1] [2]

I modified the PKGBUILD to use the installation prefix "/usr" instead of "/usr/local", since I much prefer that only manually installed files go in "/usr/local". While I was at it I made some other slight improvements for myself: cp should be faster than git for a straightforward copy, and the overall README.txt was clobbering the data/README.txt which is about the game assets (the path also had to be fixed for the /usr/local -> /usr change). In case you're interested in incorporating any of these changes, I've included a patch: --- PKGBUILD.orig 2013-09-07 00:32:13.306975949 -0400 +++ PKGBUILD 2013-09-07 00:32:38.123345202 -0400 @@ -38,7 +38,7 @@ msg "Starting build..." rm -rf "$srcdir/$_gitname-build" - git clone "$srcdir/$_gitname" "$srcdir/$_gitname-build" + cp -ar "$srcdir/$_gitname" "$srcdir/$_gitname-build" cd "$srcdir/$_gitname-build" ln -f -s $(which docbook2man) "$srcdir/docbook-to-man" @@ -46,12 +46,12 @@ ./ ./configure - cmake . + cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX:PATH=/usr . } package() { cd "$srcdir/$_gitname-build" make DESTDIR="$pkgdir/" install - cp README.txt "$pkgdir/usr/local/share/openxcom/data/README.txt" + cp README.txt "$pkgdir/usr/share/openxcom/README.txt" }

This package also has a build-time dependency on boost, it uses at least "boost/shared_ptr.hpp". I'm not sure, but I don't think it has a run-time dependency on boost-libs, since "readelf -d" doesn't show it linking to any.

Dalrik commented on 2013-08-19 22:51 (UTC)

The yaml-cpp0.3 dependency needs to be changed, as the project has updated to use 0.5

PsamtikNerd commented on 2013-07-27 18:27 (UTC)

Please add a dependency on docbook2x. The build process needs the docbook2man binary provided by docbook2x but invokes it as docbook-to-man; thus it is necessary to create an alias or symlink before invoking configure or cmake.

EasySly commented on 2013-05-15 20:39 (UTC)

Please update PKGBUILD. Since openxcom will not compiles. Install script was updated also to specify correct folders where user can copy data folder: Since yaml-cpp0.3 was renamed to yaml-cpp and update to 0.5.1 version to build OpenXcom use such PKGBUILD to install yaml-cpp0.3 (it conflicts with yaml-cpp): Migrate to newer yaml-cpp performing now and I think will be done soon. Look at topic
