I attempted to download the package 'ryzom-client-official' through Yaourt, and every time the main file 'ryzom_client.7z' always fails to download about halfway through. I was able to use 'wget' to download the file from its source (https://sourceforge.net/projects/ryzom/ … _client.7z). Now, I am wondering if it is possible to tell Yaourt to use this file and proceed with the installation as normal rather than it wanting to download it. Is this possible?
If you put the downloaded file in the same folder as the PKGBUILD for ryzom-client-official, you should be able to just run makepkg -si and have it build and install correctly (assuming the md5sums match)
Would help if I read things before asking this question...This solution works incredibly well! Thank you good sir!
The easiest way to install your package, i think it is to download the tarball from AUR. Unpack it. Place the file you downloaded inside the directory of PKGBUILD. Edit PKGBUILD line
inside the dir where's PKGBUILD. And finally install it with
pacman -U /path/to/pkg.tar.xz
There's no need for all that, makepkg only downloads a source file if there's no existing file with the same name, so modifying the sources array is pointless, and you can use the -i flag to automagically install the created package, so there's no need to call pacman manually. jynnantonix's post was spot on.
AUR helpers make you lazy, I suspect this topic wouldn't have been created in the first place if OP used makepkg instead of relying on yaourt.

Ryan, this is why I first did not go for Arch. I successfully installed the base system, fetched yaourt from a repo and tried to build some packages. All of them failed, because it was that time of the year, when yaourt needs an update, because of changes in pacman. I was under the false impression, that yaourt was some sort of official AUR build tool, so I went back to wherever I came from. It was not until I asked myself, how one is supposed to install yaourt, if it is actually an AUR package, if yaourt is not available. I read the wiki article again and was enlightened.
