Awesome job. I greatly enjoyed playing Descent ages ago, and am having a blast once again. Thank you for bringing it all back!

For some reason, when I install this package it hangs on the install and I don't see any of the "post_install" output.

Current issues about libm linking will be resolved with a Bugfix version from upstream within the next days (I hope).

to fix the error, change the PKGBUILD build to start with this:

build() {
cd $startdir/src/${pkgname}_v${pkgver}-src
sed -ie "/^PREFIX =/s|/usr/local/|/usr/|" SConstruct
sed -ie "s/^env = .*$/\0\nenv.Append(LIBS=File('\/lib\/'))/" SConstruct
scons sharepath="/usr/share/$pkgname" || return 1

Need to change `install=($pkgname.install)` to `install=$pkgname.install` for it to work.

Linking fails:

Descent 2 is not Abandonware. The game content is still copyrighted and illegal to give away for free.
However you can get the game content cheap AND DRM-free (unlike on STEAM) via
And if you are intending to buy it via you can also support DXX-Rebirth in the same way using my affiliate link from here:

That does not cost you anything extra but will support this project - if you like it.

Great work, I love your project!

I tested this on Windows XP/7 and on archlinux and it works fine

I love this Game, Descent for ever!

(for D2 data, I used My very old CD-rom^^)
but... it's an abandonware... so, you can give the data, no?
