Ubuntu 5.10 AMD64, ./configure bails -- physfs

Post by almahtar » 20 Nov 2005, 08:13

I finally got Guichan to install after editing a few of the source files so they'd work with GCC 4.0... but when I ./configure in the tmw directory, it tells me that physfs isn't installed.

I installed with both the synaptic package manager and with apt-get. It's definitely here... why won't the script find it?

The specific error (last two lines of ./configure's output):
./configure wrote:checking for PHYSFS_init in -lphysfs... no
configure: error: *** Unable to find PhysFS library (icculus.org/physfs/)
any and all help is appreaciated. Thank you for your time.

Have you installed the -dev version?

where can you find the -dev version? it isn't obviously available on the website given (icculus.org/phsyfs/)

You're get it through Synaptic, apt-get or aptitude.

you dont need to run tmw with cygwin.
that makes kind of no sense since you can run it natively on windblows

Well, I'm trying to compile tmwserv, and someone suggested in the IRC channel that it would be easier to compile with cygwin.

There's no amd64 package for it as of yet, so I can't get it through synaptic.


Matt: I don't believe I have the -dev version. I just downloaded the source off the website (themanaworld.org web site), and tried to compile it.

Matt means -dev versions of the libraries that TMW needs, TMW doesn't have a -dev version.

It's unfortunate that there are no amd64 packages yet, I guess you'd have to download the source and compile it yourself then. Or maybe there's a reason that they are not available yet?
