How to create PKGBUILD for source which needs extra login? (Nvidia)

Hi,

Is it possible to create a PKGBUILD for nvidia-sdkmanager?

The deb package isn't a big problem at all, we can easily extract it from .deb.
And the sdk itself is electron based app, so it shouldn't has any compactibility problem either.
(Can run it locally without problem, but still need extra way to pretend the distro is Ubuntu to download board specific tools).

But the main problem is, to download that damn SDK, a nvidia developer account is needed.

Is there any good suggestion to handle such case?
Or we have to download the package and build it locally?

Just put the file name in the source array and let the user obtain the source. local:// is often used for this.

Thanks, I guess that's the only way for this use-case.

Linus indeed has his reason to say his famous "Fxxk Nvidia".

Perhaps he does.  But 1) he is not saying that on these forums, and 2) his reasons have nothing to do with your gripe.
