.deb packages.

Post by Amethyst » 20 Dec 2006, 02:49

When I first ever wanted to play this game I had to try and get the stuff from the Ubuntu Edgy Repositories. The problem was that I was running Dapper Drake so I couldn't download the files. And for some strange reason it is nearly impossible to compile source code in Ubuntu Dapper Drake. So I was wanting to know if there is going to be a .deb package in the future. I think this would benefit a lot of people not running Edgy Eft.

The more people ask the more likely it'll be for somebody to build the packages. Maybe I'll look into it later today, but I can't make any promises about when they'll be up.

As for compiling TMW on Dapper, it's really not that difficult. All dependencies except Guichan can be easily installed with apt-get. Then you compile/install Guichan, and then you compile TMW. On the Dependencies wiki page, it is noted that all dependencies except Guichan can be installed with the command:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install libphysfs-dev libcurl3-openssl-dev libxml2-dev libsdl-image1.2-dev libsdl-mixer1.2-dev libsdl-net1.2-dev g++
