I updated the package for something that works for me:

take what you want :)

There is in fact a problem. I'm currently fixing it. Sorry for the inconvenience :/

I just tried to install this but nrfjprog and mergehex do not seem to be installed. I have the following files in my installation folders (/opt/nrfjprog and /opt/mergehex):

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root  29M Jun 27 15:02 JLink_Linux_V644e_x86_64.deb
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root  29M Jun 27 15:02 JLink_Linux_V644e_x86_64.tgz
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root  59M Jun 27 15:02 nRF5x-Command-Line-Tools_10_1_1_Linux-x86-64.tar
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 671K Jun 27 15:02 nRF-Command-Line-Tools_10_1_1_Linux-amd64.deb
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1.3M Jun 27 15:02 nRF-Command-Line-Tools_10_1_1_Linux-amd64.tar.gz
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root  722 Jun 27 15:02 README.txt

I had to additionally unpack the amd64.tar.gz files, are you sure the PKGbuild is up to date? Seems to be the same issue as marza had (some comments below)

Fixed thanx!

AlexisPolti commented on 2019-06-22 10:49

Thanx I'll look into it ASAP!

Hey, I think Nordic changed their download URLs along with releasing version 10.1.1. I managed to hack this to work for me by editing the PKBUILD to use new URLs, pkgver & md5. I also had to manually unpack a tarball inside the new tarball before the installation worked, don't know enough about the build system to do that automatically... Got the new urls here if needed:



Link to the tools:

So basically I ran this (after modifying PKGBUILD):

mkpkg -sri (fails after download)
cd src && tar -xvf nRF-Command-Line-Tools_10_1_1_Linux-amd64.tar.gz && cd ..
makepkg -sri (now it works)

Hope that helps in upgrading the package :) I can upload my edited PKBUILD if needed, but I only made changes to the x64 related lines.

Edit: Fixed some linebreaks

Yes this will work for nRF52 too.
Thanx for your comment :)

This should work with NRF52 I believe yea? Will give it a shot! Mainly wanted to comment to say THANK you for maintaining this package, I'm just getting into embedded stuff and was handed a NRF52 dev board for testing some firmware and super glad to see can cover (hopefully everything) stuff from nix without dealing with a VM this and that, we'll see! Too bad no NRFConnect on the aur, maybe will have to add that!:)

Sorry for the late update, forgot to add it to my watchlist!
Merry Christmas :)

AlexisPolti commented on 2016-09-11 22:07

I've taken over the maintaining of these tools, as I'm maintaining the Segger ones : jlink and co. Should be ok now.
