Careful: I tested the lib32 variant of this with UT99, and while a lot of the game works, some parts aren't exactly great (e.g. crash on Alt+Tab and mouse look is bounded by the mouse reaching the screen border; didn't try a lot of gaming due to that). You're probably better off with the full sdl 1.2!

@Mittin you don't flag -git packages for a new release. Please don't do this again in the future

This package should not have a replaces field. Repo's stable package sdl12-compat should be the only one that replaces sdl.

Thanks for considering this, and for maintaining this package.

@autumnontape Thanks for testing this. I've added armv7h as a supported arch.

autumnontape commented on 2021-08-13 19:54 (UTC)

I've built this package on an armv7h Arch Linux ARM device and am using it without problems (barring ones that are also present on my x86_64 laptop, of course, this still being alpha-quality software). Would you consider adding armv7h to the archs?

Hi @pix3l, sorry, my mistake, I had tested with and without DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX before, and both were installing in /usr. But looks like that changed upstream with commit 848ad42. I'll fix ASAP.

otherwise it will get installed into /usr/local

Hi @PedroHLC, sorry for not checking back with you. I'll add you as a Co-Maintainer. Feel free to apply your suggested updates. See also lib32-sdl2_compat12-git :)

Hi @archi42.

As I said previously, you can drop the prepare, and COPYING is now named LICENSE.txt. Now, there is a new dependency: "glu".

I would like again to suggest changing line 42 to: make DESTDIR="$pkgdir" install That should make the PKGBUILD update-proof.

If you don't have the time, please add me as a collaborator, and I will apply those changes...

PedroHLC commented on 2021-03-13 12:51 (UTC)

Seems like the patches aren't required anymore. And "COPYING" was renamed to "LICENSE.txt".

Also, any special reason to not use make DESTDIR=... install?

archi42 commented on 2021-02-14 22:49 (UTC)

@shoober420: Thanks for the hint! I've updated the PKGBUILD accordingly.

@dreieck: I've updated the PKGBUILD. Sorry for the late action, it seems the notification got lost somewhere or I just forgot about it :(

I applied both changes to this package and the lib32 variant as well.
