Thanks for the report!

I reworked the PKGBUILD to have users download the source manually via their browser. I'm not sure there is a better solution.

Others have asked in the forums [1] [2] about Google drive links and the advice seems to be to host somewhere else, either by asking upstream or cross-posting. Neither of those options seems feasible in this case.

It looks like that Drive link is having some issues already. Maybe it would be a good idea to expect the user to handle creating ~/Downloads/, and then have the pkgbuild use that instead? does this and it works pretty well.

Looks good, I was able to build it!

Yea, the google drive direct link might cause problems for you in the future if/when it changes arbitrarily..

Thanks for the report!

I tried to update the package with a seemingly very fragile Google Drive direct URL. Can you see if it works for you?

Actually, the file is no longer hosted at the location in the PKGBUILD, which explains why the signature (and zip itself) are invalid.. it was downloading some page redirect thing. Their download page links to this google drive file:

It also looks like the file layout of the zip file has changed:

PKGBUILD: line 36: cd: /tmp/makepkg/nand2tetris/src/nand2tetris: No such file or directory ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package().

FYI, the '' file fails the validity check now:

xieyuheng put export _JAVA_AWT_WM_NONREPARENTING=1 in your .xinitrc file

Got it, thanks!

I also upgraded the integrity checks to sha256.
