Hi, now there's not only the need to edit the version. I seriously doubt that anybody was/is/will be able to build for "x64_86" architecture. For now the following changes seemingly make the PKGBUILD working again.

< pkgver=1.952
> pkgver=1.956
< arch=('x64_86')
> arch=('x86_64')
< source=("$pkgver.tar.bz2")
> source=("$pkgver.orig.tar.gz")
< md5sums=('a15bbc3fddb7440245c645c0b56421d9')
> sha256sums=('713310cefc82d667b8c110cf52686b984f6dc7f7dd99c1cd111754e2b42c887b')
<   cd "wdune-$pkgver"
>   cd "$pkgname-$pkgver.orig"
<   cd "$pkgname-$pkgver"
>   cd "$pkgname-$pkgver.orig"

Btw. does somebody know how to get in contact with upstream? It's neither possible to use pacman to load the package provided by upstream directly by the link, due to the missing sig file...

$ sudo pacman -U 
loading packages...
error: '/var/cache/pacman/pkg/wdune-1.956-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz': package missing required signature

...nor does it run after downloading and installing it, since it's compiled against an outdated version of boost.

$ wget -q 
$ sudo pacman -U wdune-1.956-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz
$ pacman -Q boost-libs 
boost-libs 1.75.0-2
$ dune
dune: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

There's no version 1.922 available. Provided are versions <= 1.921 followed by 1.926.

$ makepkg -s
==> ERROR: white_dune is not available for the 'x86_64' architecture.
$ wget
No such file ‘wdune-1.922.tar.bz2’.

Your brand new PKGBUILD requires a package that doesn't exist anymore. Why? The link of this comment from 2020-06-30 provides the pointer. 'xorg-fonts-alias' is split into the packages 'xorg-fonts-alias-100dpi', 'xorg-fonts-alias-75dpi', 'xorg-fonts-alias-cyrillic' and 'xorg-fonts-alias-misc'.

All of them depend on xorg-fonts-alias: (extra),,

IOW there's no need to list, too.

Just (testing) migrated from xorg-fonts-alias to xorg-fonts-alias-misc.

I don't know, if removing xorg-fonts-alias is ok, since the package content is not the same as of xorg-fonts-alias-misc.

Ralf_Mardorf commented on 2020-06-30 06:18 (UTC)

The testing repo is not enabled, but an upgrade installs a package from testing, that breaks the 'xorg-fonts-alias' dependency, see aur-general.

white_dune 1.660 isn't provided by

You didn't update the checksum.

You have --with-helpurl="/usr/share/doc/$name/docs" --with-protobaseurl="/usr/share/doc/$name/docs", but have not specified $name. Please fix.

Also in package() you use the unspecified $name.

dreieck commented on 2019-02-08 16:47 (UTC)

Package's name is white_dune, so what is the sense of --with-uninstallcomment="pacman -R wdune"? wdune is not the package's name ...

dreieck commented on 2019-02-08 16:46 (UTC)

Why is firefox a makedepend?

Have you really checked which makedepends are really needed?

And are some of them maybe a real dependency, and not only a makedepend?

Please invest some time to make a quality PKGBUILD.

dreieck commented on 2019-02-08 16:44 (UTC) (edited on 2019-02-08 16:49 (UTC) by dreieck)

Just a suggestion: You could consider adding the documentation: -- either directly (and adding `provides=("white_dune-doc=${pkgver}"), or making a split package where the other one is the documentation package.

Also installing the README*-files to /usr/share/doc/white_dune/.

dreieck commented on 2019-02-08 16:42 (UTC) (edited on 2019-02-08 17:08 (UTC) by dreieck)

You have an empty prepare()-function. Consider removing it.

Same with check()-function.

dreieck commented on 2019-02-08 16:42 (UTC)

In makedepends, you have many things which are not needed, since packages from the base and base-devel groups are assumed to be installed.

This includes e.g. gcc and fakeroot.

You also have gcc twice.

You also have sometimes extraneous space at the end of the lines, which is bad style.

dreieck commented on 2019-02-08 16:39 (UTC)

$url should point to the project's website, not the file do download, e.g.


dreieck commented on 2019-02-08 16:38 (UTC)

$pkgdesc shoud not contain the package name. Also, it could be a bit more elaborate. E.g.:

pkgdesc="A graphical VRML97/X3D editor, simple NURBS/Superformula 3D modeller, animation tool, and VRML97/X3DV commandline compiler."

dreieck commented on 2019-02-08 16:37 (UTC)

arch=('86_64') is wrong, it needs to be arch=('x86_64').

Also, sure that not also other architectures are supported?
