Trying to install ET

Hi there.

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.

Re: Trying to install ET

I've just looked at the PKGBUILD and it should install a:
/usr/bin/enemy-territory
script to launch the game.
There also a
/usr/bin/enemy-territoryd
script which I guess is for the game server. Maybe you need to start the server first.

And, welcome to Arch! smile

Re: Trying to install ET

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.

Re: Trying to install ET

you could also try Penguin's aurbuild script to build packages from aur automatically, IF you trust the pkgbuild.

Re: Trying to install ET

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 !
