@jck

There already exists a modular version of Quartus in the AUR, quartus-lite and all the related packages.

I would suggest splitting the package since this contains Quartus, Device support files and Modelsim ASE.

Hi.
Package installed without problems, but when I try to open help I get following information in the console:
firefox: /opt/altera/16.0/quartus/linux64/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.21' not found (required by firefox)
Seems that quartus uses its own copies of pretty much all libraries and they take precedence over system ones... Any idea how to fix it?

Added the dependencies. I didn't realize they were missing, thank you.

Needs lib32-ncurses5-compat-libs for 64-bit installations and ncurses5-compat-libs for 32bit installations in order to modelsim to work. This is also documented in the wiki.

Beware, this package takes about 52GB to build but only 14GB to install. It has to grab the 6GB tar from Altera's site, extract it to a bunch of files adding up to 6GB, then uncompresses those to a 14GB directory, which is then copied (another 14GB), and then packaged up (another 14GB). I recommend building the package manually instead of using a helper if you are low on space so you can remove old files along the way.

If anyone has any better ways to preserve space while building this, let me know.

- Updated to 15.1.0.185
- Updated freetype2 link
- Added modelsim-ae.desktop and _modelsimver option for easier switching if needed
- Restructured PKGBUILD to better reflect proper workflow: prepare(): patching, package(): combine all files together. This results in easier resuming or skipping of extraction steps (like if you are using this PKGBUILD to install a different edition of Quartus/ModelSim). Before, you would always have to rerun the setup.sh script if you failed/aborted the build process which mean running extraction again. Now, this step can be skipped with '-e' if you've already done it once.

Done.
