@crazyraven: if you are using pipewire, you have to install lib32-pipewire.

@jmsq Sorry I totally forgot to reply. I've cleaned the yay cache an tried again to install. It worked. Thanks :)

jmsq commented on 2021-10-04 04:22 (UTC)

@Luca91 I just tested making it again and it works just fine; maybe a localized machine issue?

Luca91 commented on 2021-10-02 17:20 (UTC)

This package is now broken for me :( I can't update it anymore, and I can't even install it from scratch. I got a package error just after the "Uncompressing Quake 4 (TM)" step.

Am I the only one experiencing this issue?

Thank you very much

I updated the PKGBUILD to modernize the dependency list for multi-arch.

@johnnybash: See the updated version. I kept i686 compatibility so people using Arch Linux 32 (or other Arch derivatives that support 32bit) could still use it.

johnnybash commented on 2021-08-25 15:56 (UTC)

if its just about removing the i686 stuff, I can help you out.

otherwise makepkg installs lib32-sdl just fine for me?!

Slash commented on 2021-08-24 21:49 (UTC)

It is in the PKGBUILD, it is just defined in an older way. I will update it when I get a chance or I can add co-maintainers.

jmsq commented on 2021-08-06 12:39 (UTC)

PKGBUILD is missing lib32-sdl build dependency.

I had to install lib32-libpulse to get sound to work.

zan commented on 2016-06-06 03:51 (UTC)

If you are getting the classic "libGL error: unable to load driver" with Quake 4, do what you do with Steam and delete and from the /opt/quake4 directory so SDL uses the native libraries and it should work (it at least does for me).

MrEvilBreakfast commented on 2015-04-16 15:36 (UTC)

Ah thank you!

Slash commented on 2015-04-16 12:17 (UTC)

Change "sys_lang" to "english" in ~/.quake4/q4base/Quake4Config.cfg

MrEvilBreakfast commented on 2015-04-16 05:03 (UTC)

This is awesome and I've got it working just fine... but... The menus and everything are en espanol. I can guess where menu things are okay, but I'd much prefer english. Did I miss something in the build, or...?

Slash commented on 2015-04-01 19:53 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up, I modernized the PKGBUILD.

obelix commented on 2015-04-01 11:46 (UTC)

makepkg complains about missing package() function and doesn't work at all.

commented on 2013-04-20 12:36 (UTC)

The site for the run file is down, a (slow & official) mirror here:

swiftgeek commented on 2011-12-12 08:44 (UTC)

Please disable compression of the package in the next release... it's pointless to compress compressed files. PKGEXT='.pkg.tar'

Slash commented on 2010-10-11 22:23 (UTC)

@songangel: I downloaded the binary and the md5sum still matches. I would recommend retrying the download or downloading with wget/curl and see if it helps.

commented on 2010-10-09 22:48 (UTC)

The MD5 doesnt match for the run binary or perhaps the server is down
