@jtlobdell thanks for the heads up, links are updated, and now it's possible to directly download the binary from makepkg.

@BenderIsGreat34 thanks for the proposed fix, latest version includes the fix.

@nakanoXF did you manually download the binary file as described in PKGBUILD? I just download it now and sha512sum is still the same.

I found a workaround for the failing configure script that does not require including preconfigured files. In the build step, this line needs to be inserted in the configure script right after 'configure.user' is included:

ac_configure_args=$(echo $ac_configure_args | sed s/'//g)

For omnetpp 5.1, this is line 2209, it might have changed with subsequent releases though. The file can be added in bash using sed, too:

# Fix configure script
sed -i "2209 a ac_configure_args=$(echo $ac_configure_args | sed s/\'//g)" configure

Omnet++ links now have direct link protection with captcha verification, making it not possible to directly download the installer. From now on the users will have to manually download them in next update.

Regarding osg-earth it is disabled because of this... error: no member named 'getModelLayerGroup' in 'osgEarth::MapNode' mapNode->getModelLayerGroup()->addChild(connectionGraphNode);

As of 9/2/18, when running makepkg for this AUR package, the omnetpp*.tgz file fails integrity check. This has been ran several times and fails everytime. Skipping integrity check results in the build failing due to missing directories. Creating these directories results in the build failing once again due to missing makefile and targets.

I do not believe that this is the fault of the package maintainer: when downloading 5.4-1 from the Omnet++ directly, the download fails to complete multiple times. I have successfully downloaded the .tgz from Oment++ and compared this to the .tgz that gets pulled by the AUR and I have noticed a significant amount of files are missing from the one pulled by the AUR - this is obviously an incomplete download. Since this was troublesome to pull even from a standard web browser, I would point to the host for the download as the problem here.

Using a complete download from Omnet++, I can follow the included instructions to continue installation. Do note that osgearth should be included as an optional dependency. By default, osgearth support is enabled and ./configure will throw a warning if it does not find it. OSGEarth can be found in the AUR. This can be disabled if you do not need it. With OSGEarth installed, ./configure will throw another warning for an optional dependency akaroa. I did not bother installing this dependency as I know I did not need it. Running make will successfully compile Omnet++, and the program runs fine.
