Also, the file doesn't download for me (x86_64); see error:

Can you add a systemd script (since rc.d scripts are being phased out)?

I fixed up the PKGBUILD so it should work with i686 and x86_64 with out any issues.
Let me know if there are any more problems.

There's a way to avoid '--skipinteg', changing the last (32bit) md5sum to the 64bit md5sum. Worked as a charm. :-)

I'm not sure if this works for i686 people flawlessly, but my pkgbuild is here:

Thank you.

Edit PKGBUILD and change i686 to x86_64 and 32bit to 64bit or vise versa and build with makepkg --skipinteg

I don't know exactly what is wrong with the PKGBUILD, but this seems to work.

Even using a downloaded tarball from Stanford:

If makepkg complains about a ssl certificate error, please manually download the package from Stanford and try again.

Added i686 support

Here is my version of foldingathome daemon script:

See my last comment on foldingathome-smp ( ) to know why.

Can you make the folding@home daemon depend on the nscd daemon? This will save people who forget to load nscd first (or want to load f@h in the background).

(Add "ck_daemon nscd && /etc/rc.d/nscd start" to the top of /etc/rc.d/foldingathome)
