Solved by removing

libudev0-shim and lib32-libudev0-shim.

HoN is launching but fails to update to a newer version and I think is from this error:

ln: failed to create symbolic link './libs-x86_64/': Permissio denied.

Any advice?

It is kind of hard to keep this application up to date without push notification when it updates.

@N_mag the installer direct, gives error with some libraries, it is better to use the package from aur. I just installed it without any problem

Interestingly, I just recently tested the package, all seemed well. The GLX issue might be an upstream issue, or perhaps an issue due to conflicting system libraries and the ones in /opt/hon/lib.
I will disown the package, since I am not using it regularly.

Running the installer itself directly from Frostburn works just fine to me, so although I appreciate the work of the maintainer for this, I don't see why using this script helps anything unless I'm mistaken. Just seems like it just has problems where the normal installer just does it's thing and correctly.

I was able to get this running OK using mrinvisible's method, but when I attempt to run the update (from within the game) it just crashes silently.
