@cronos: That file hasn't been part of the package for a year and a half. You are doing something wrong (hard to guess what from the information you have provided).

Unable to update ZDoom, for the same error fmodapi42636 x64.tar.gz linux ... FAILED

I think your error was caused by the changed fmod download link, as in my other zdoom packages. Fixed.

I can't build zdoom using your PKGBUILD file.

The symlinks probably broke because the files don't exist on my system, but I've done a few builds, without changing anything, and it's worked since. I tried tweaking the package build, and my problem with zdoom.pk3 is fixed with your solution. So, it's all good now. Thanks.

/usr/share/games/zdoom is the correct location, your config file is probably broken. There should be a "Path=/usr/share/games/zdoom/" line in the "[FileSearch.Directories]" section of your ~/.zdoom/zdoom.ini.

As for the symlinks, I don't see how that could have broken your build.

May I make a couple requests? I kept fighting an error where ZDoom "couldn't find zdoomk.pk3". I found that it needs to be in /usr/share/zdoom/zdoom.pk3, so I modified this line:

install -Dm644 zdoom.pk3 "$pkgdir/usr/share/games/zdoom/zdoom.pk3"
to read like this:
install -Dm644 zdoom.pk3 "$pkgdir/usr/share/zdoom/zdoom.pk3"

I also had to delete the symlinks for freedoom to get it to build properly, but now it works.
