Please refrain from suggesting AUR helpers in the comments! The only supported way of building is via makepkg. Helpers can and should be used, but in case of problems retry with makepkg and report errors based on that.

makepkg is part of pacman and the official way to build AUR packages. Installing happens via pacman, and everything is tracked properly. No need to worry about that!

I'm just afraid that the "makepkg" method doesn't integrate this package in the update ring of the package manager (and setup all it has to setup in the system), so I prefer to give a solution that i'm sure it does

And I listen about your complain about wrapper concern. But the default method of the wrapper works for all the package but not yours, they will not change an universal method just for your package. Instead it's better that you change your method to make like all other working package or that we use a workaround with the wrappers

every AUR wrapper uses makepkg under the hood. They are wrappers, not reimplementations. However, there wrapper potentially introduce bugs which have nothing to do with makepkg and the PKGBUILD in question, putting the maintenance burden of the wrapper on the maintainer of the AUR package in question.

Shouldn't yay use makepkg ? If so, theres actually no problem with makepkg considering that it succeeds to install here

@kaefert It's mysterious that pamac can install everything but this package

I installed yay in pamac and did ln -s /var/tmp/pamac-build-$USER/unigine-superposition ~/.cache/yay/; yay -Syu unigine-superposition and it worked just fine

@kaefert: Please do not report problem when using an AUR helper (in your case pamac), since they are not supported. Use plain makepkg instead. In your case the fix is simple: just change the directory in line 24 to the name of the directory you find in src/.

had to unpack the downloaded package manually, aur installation ended with:

/var/tmp/pamac-build-thomas/unigine-superposition/PKGBUILD: line 24: cd: /var/tmp/pamac-build-thomas/unigine-superposition/src/unigine-superposition: No such file or directory ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package().

this page swallowed twice my comment, so I'll post a link on how to run this demo on ArchLinux.

TL;DR you need Qt5.9 and Xorg.

From Unigine - super quick response!

Hi Alex,

We decided to not change the release version since the changes are basically in two missing files in the installer. Yes, I know that it may be confusing, but in terms of benchmark functionality- not other files were changed. These missing libraries allow us to get rid of OpenSSL errors on some Linux distros.

In case of other major / minor changes that directly affects the benchmarking process we will for sure change the version number.

Sorry for the inconvenience caused.
