I temporarily adopted the package to ensure everything in the PKGBUILD was quoted properly. It was only after pushing the update that I discovered the sources would no longer build :(

Understood. I resign my position of maintainer of this package, so that an appropriate person can try out those sources. Good luck.

I have found what I believe to be the sources required for this package and have added them to my Github account. They can now be found here:

EDIT: I still believe this is the correct source, but it appears to have been modified. The makefile no longer has a linux target.

It appears that I do not have the sources, as the computer I built this package on is no longer operational. I apologise for this unfortunate circumstance. Perhaps some kind soul will be able to provide it.

could someone please add a new mirror to the missing file containing the actual source? i'll email this request to ptseng too

Thank you to carstene1ns for the idea to look for alternative sources. I examined the file hosted at brothersoft mentioned but it appears to only be (non-Linux) binaries and not sources, thus not suitable for use in AUR.

I did manage to find a host with the sources. It should be obvious that this is not as desirable as having it from the original, and there will be clear questions about the integrity of the file. For me personally I was willing to go with it because the sha256sum matched and diff -ru showed no changes, but outside parties may not trust me.

I left a warning in the PKGBUILD about such matters, but I guess on the balance it is better to offer up the PKGBUILD to those who may want it. And so, here we are today with pkgrel 6.

Source is still available here:

"Lockjaw Tetromino Game is no longer available. Please use Emacs instead." =(

This didn't build for me without modifying the PKGBUILD. Here's my fix:

Below this line in the PKGBUILD (line 46):
sed -i "s/jpgal/jpgalleg/" makefile
add this line:
sed -i "s/-mwindows/-lm/" makefile

This fixed two build errors I was getting:
-mwindows was not being found, and libm was not being linked to

Package release 5:
* bsdtar was setting the execute bits on files extracted from the zip. I didn't like this.
* touch installed.ini in /opt/lockjaw. This causes lockjaw to write its files to .lockjaw instead of in the user's home directory, which I find much better.
* Remove .install script, remove use of games group
* Change my email
