I got the same error too. I'm definitly no shell-script expert but it probably occurs in the shell script "configure" in the main folder between line 17301 and 17346. Probably the script checks for the library in the wrong places. The right place would be something like "/usr/lib/ffmpeg-compat/libavformat.so" or "/usr/include/ffmpeg-compat/libavformat" (I don't know which file it tries to find). Have one of you already got an account on http://forum.vcmi.eu/index.php and could descripe that problem there?

checking for av_open_input_file in -lavformat... no
configure: error: FFMpeg avformat library not found. Please install it.

seems it could not be compiled again:/ any ideas here?

I'm going to get this working, don't worry. If anyone know how to get past the issue with libavformat, do share(otherwise I'll just cheat or something)

@josephgbr: haha:-) looking forward to that~
and, a notice for those who want to install it: please change "heroes3_path" to the homm3 path in PKGBUILD before makepkg.

@Cravix: yeah, yeah, that black magic :) Good luck! I'm working on a rewrite of this PKGBUILD. When/if I have it working, I'll let you know.

@josephgbr: to be exact, the uppercase filename i mentioned is all-uppercase,
e.g. "H3SPRITE.OLD", and what vcmi need is something like "H3sprite.old"= =
maybe i'll take time to fix it, use find, tr and shell string func...

@Cravix: You'll most likely need to have these uppercase files, as that's what VCMI expects. I mean, you could apply a patch in vcmi's sources to set upper->lowercase for HoMM3 filenames, but probably you wouldn't want to create such patch for a SVN package.

@josephgbr:
thank you, i've read it before:-)
i just wonder if there's a way to play it without rearrange the files since i don't want to get /opt/vcmi/ messed up and many files's filenames of HoMM3 is all uppercase :-/
if there's no other solution, maybe i should repack vcmi to backup package, and once i want to remove it i just delete the whole folder, en

@Cravix: It seems you need to have the complete data files (means HoMM3 + WoG + vcmi tarball) inside VCMI data files' root dir (/opt/vcmi, in this case) in order to play correctly. That's what I understood from http://wiki.vcmi.eu/index.php?title=Installation_on_Linux#Preparing_data
