Any chance for an updated package to 8.01? Or is this orphaned?

Will you make package for separate vulkan renderer?

Sure, will add it with the next update.

mjr4077au: Upstream should maybe decide properly which method they want to support in the long term. If you look at the history of my yamagi-quake2* packages, versions before 7.XX (2017) have used the Makefile. I was told back then to migrate to CMake because they wanted to deprecate the Makefile. Now it is the other way around. Other distributions use the CMake method as well since it was added. Personally I do not care which method is used...

mjr4077au commented on 2020-06-11 06:48 (UTC)

Upstream recommend just using the makefile and not the CMakeLists.txt file as they don't test it or build with it themselves. The reasons being are in the link in the comment I mentioned before.

Basically, delete the Cmake lines from the build() in the PKGBUILD and replace with make WITH_SYSTEMWIDE=yes

lazycrypt commented on 2020-06-11 06:43 (UTC)

While waiting for the package to be updated and fixed, how should the PKGBUILD be modified for it to work?

mjr4077au commented on 2020-05-11 09:47 (UTC)

Hi there,

For this package and all of Yamagi's Quake II repositories, upstream has indicated that the CMakeLists.txt usage is considered unsupported. It would be recommeneded to transition your PKGBUILDs to using the makefile only.

Compiling recently broke due to changes in game that were not reflected in the CMakeLists.txt. Author's notes here also:

Kind Regards, Mitch.

quake2-5.32.tar.xz fails to extract due to corrupted input data from "/aur-yamagi-quake2/src/quake2-5.32/stuff/osx/"? That zip file is indeed corrupt and will not open. Its been corrupt last few releases actually quake2-5.30.tar.xz is the last known good non-corrupted I was able to "fix" it by opening quake2-5.30.tar.xz and pulling the needed files: /quake2-5.30/stuff/ /quake2-5.30/stuff/yq2.cfg /quake2-5.30/stuff/osx/ Then put them into quake2-5.32.tar.xz at the same location. I wasn't sure if it was needed, but I built it from the terminal with,"makepkg --skipinteg" and all works fine.

carstene1ns commented on 2015-04-18 21:09 (UTC)

No problem, flag removed.

commented on 2015-04-18 17:47 (UTC)

sorry for flagged out-of-date

carstene1ns commented on 2014-01-24 15:27 (UTC)

After installation of all Quake II data files, your folder structure should look something like this:

Adopted and updated to 5.21, using SDL2 now.

On 09/03/2012 Quake II 5.00 was released.

qs9rx commented on 2012-08-20 10:22 (UTC)

Update please! 4.21 is out. md5sum is 9f5bde93b49e350ced7228cf2b2dc11f

sseering commented on 2012-08-04 18:18 (UTC)

A new version is out. Please update the PKGBUILD.

abraxas commented on 2012-06-11 11:26 (UTC)

openal should be added as a dependency. otherwise you'll get a compile error.

neuromancer85 commented on 2012-04-16 21:11 (UTC)

Here is the updated PKGBUILD:

neuromancer85 commented on 2012-04-16 20:53 (UTC)

Version 4.10 is out... Is this pkg still mantained?

prg commented on 2012-01-19 16:45 (UTC)

Looks like the segfault issue can be resolved by doing: sudo ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/share/quake2/opengl32 which was posted earlier

prg commented on 2012-01-19 03:49 (UTC)

There is currently an error with the .install It should be -- :: Touch launch game: cd /usr/share/quake2/ ^^^^^ instead of /usr/bin/quake2. In addition, it might be worth creating a couple line script that will do this and install it to /usr/bin/ I'm also having segfault issues with the latest version (but did not have issues with the previous). I will post more information when I find out more

commented on 2011-11-08 08:37 (UTC)

@Augenblick I had the same problem but deleteing my ~/.quake2 directory and letting this recreate it fixed it.

commented on 2011-10-29 21:44 (UTC)

I am having problems with the textures in game. Sometimes the player textures and some in the map dissapear or are changed by others, also the HUD and the menu, which appear as a series of rectangles. I think it's associated with lighting because in open maps this issue doesn happen all the time. Is anyone else having the same problem?

omer666 commented on 2011-03-28 10:34 (UTC)

Please forgive me for asking the question, but is this package orphan or what ?

omer666 commented on 2011-03-05 19:02 (UTC)

Version 3.0 released
