I'm trying to install enemy-territory. I've downloaded the files from the AUR and then followed the wiki's instructions... and now what ? Downloading of the file went well, makepkg did not return any error... and ET still isn't working. I've searched all over /usr and there's no et or enemy-territory executable.
Did I miss something ?
Thanks for helping a newcomer. Arch really looks great.
I've just looked at the PKGBUILD and it should install a:
script to launch the game.
There also a
script which I guess is for the game server. Maybe you need to start the server first.
And, welcome to Arch!
find / -print | grep et
find / -print | grep et.x86
Basically, what you've done is created a package. Nothing has been installed yet. Read (or skim) the ABS howto, and the pacman switches used to install and upgrade packages from your drive is right there. Cool thing is, now you have a pacman package you can save to a software compilation disk.
Thank you all for the useful comments, especially Bysshe for the heads-up on ABS. A quick look at the Arch wiki and I was all set. For some reason, the first time I ran makepkg I didn't get a .pkg file. Oh well, it should be working now ! Thanks !
