The link is https://web.archive.org/web/20170225164416/http://download.gna.org/warmux/warmux-11.04.1.tar.bz2
but the bandwidth is too low to be practical (we should not hammer archive.org anyway.)

Github sounds like a better alternative. What about forking this one?

I can host the tarball above if that is acceptable. Or, if someone has the archive link, I can switch to that.

Yes, gna is dead. However, archive.org has an almost full backup of all software hosted there.
The warmux project archive is all in all 5,3 GB in size (zipped), and the data would need migration to GitHub or something to be useable again.
The project is still dead, though. There have not been updates since 2011, so without some active developers, this will not change.

Seems like the website where from the PKGBUILD downloads things is dead. gna.org is not accessible. Thus, the install times out always. I searched a bit and it seems to be the only mirror for Warmux.
The Debian package works, but I am not familiar enough with PKGBUILDs to write one that makes an Arch package from a Debian package (.deb).

I agree, the compression shouldn't be disabled by default.

I'm not able to build this without applying a small patch. Here is an updated version: https://github.com/Martchus/PKGBUILDs/tree/master/warmux/default

disabling compression by default is not a good idea. 15mb may be a lot of space in some scenarios...

anyway, according to https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Creating_packages "An Arch package is no more than a tar archive, or 'tarball', compressed using xz, which contains..."

...just so you know. cheers! ;-)

No i don't need and game is anyway dead in upstream so no need to fix nothing.

ozky: This is intended. I disabled compression because it takes quite some time and only saves 15mb. There are no drawbacks, pacman will accept it anyways.
If you really need it compressed, change line 25 in the PKGBUILD before building or execute `xz warmux-11.04.1-8-x86_64.pkg.tar` in your shell after building.

Pkgbuild create wrongly named package warmux-11.04.1-8-x86_64.pkg.tar it should be
warmux-11.04.1-8-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz.

Package adopted. This now conflicts with warmux-data to provide smooth transition. Thanks @lordheavy for merging the packages!
