I like to copy-paste the pkgdesc from upstream's webpage whenever possible. The current "Infiniminer/Minecraft inspired game" used to be the upstream tagline. I could go with "Voxel game engine" but that does not say the game is actually playable. The next sentence in upstream's current tagline "Play one of our many games" does not really fit the pkgdesc descriptive format. Hmmm.

Description should be "A voxel game engine. Comes prepackaged with Minetest Game, a Minecraft-inspired game"

Edit: Never mind, figured it out myself, and update is coming.

Original comment was: Please explain what improvement adding LuaJIT would bring to this package. And please send me your proposed change as a diff to the current PKGBUILD. Cheers.

In general most minetest builds use LuaJIT simply because it's quite a bit faster, can you add it as an optional dependency or something of that sort?

vesath commented on 2017-06-21 11:55

Please explain why libluajit would be needed. The game works fine as it is. (However recent git snapshots do require freetype2, which I've just added as a dependency.)

libluajit is missing in dependencies

MadTux: Thanks for noticing! It's this bug:
It should be fixed upstream soon, but in the meantime I've fixed our build by adding -DENABLE_GETTEXT=TRUE as cmake argument.

It doesn't compile for me:

Thanks for the report, I'll add that build option straight away.

I had a problem where Minetest would ignore mods in /usr/share/minetest/mods. Apparently you need to set a build option.

From the instructions on Mintests github:
"- If you want to install it system-wide (or are making a distribution package), you will want to use -DRUN_IN_PLACE=FALSE"

Not having this makes it problematic to install mod packages as they will be put in the /usr dir. So users will have to move them manually from /usr to /home. Not very KISS in other words.
