0.0.24 won't launch after installing (resolved)

Post by evadem » 31 Dec 2007, 15:29

After much effort I finally got game to compile and install in Fedora 8. Problem is when I click on the launcher nothing happens. Just a dead button. Any ideas? I tried to make uninstall and then remade install, but didn't resolve it.

I decided I needed to start new thread on this.

Maybe you can get more information if you try to start the game from a terminal window.

Start a terminal and write:

tmw


Then an error might print itself in the terminal.

Did you do both

Code: Select all

make
and

Code: Select all

make install
after compiling?
Did you see any error messages at the bottom of the text it spewed out when doing either of those two?

Tried to execute from terminal and got this:

[root@localhost dave]# tmw
Could not initialize SDL: No available video device

And no I didn't receive any error messages when I did make and make install. Did a make uninstall and the make install to recheck results of make install. Here's the make install:

Your problem is almost certainly that you shouldn't be running it under the root account. I'm assuming you just forgot to type "exit" after "make install".

Thanks for your reply. You are right, I didn't do the exit. Kind of a noob at this. I'm going to start from scratch and try again. Hopefully I'll have better luck this go around.

./configure and zlib

Post by evadem » 01 Jan 2008, 20:47

I reformatted partition and reinstalled Fedora 8 so I would have a clean system to work from. I installed needed files using terminal. Maybe you can enlighten me as to why when I run ./configure for tmw it tells me it can't find the zlib file, which is already installed on system. Is it perhaps a version problem or must I direct install to it's location somehow?

Found a tar.gz version to install. Now after completing install of tmw I still can't launch it. No errors when making or make installing. When I launch from terminal I get this:

[dave@localhost ~]$ tmw
tmw: error while loading shared libraries: libguichan_sdl.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I've had the same problem on Fedora 8. When you install guichan, some of the files aren't copied to the correct location. I've fixed it before, but I can't remember how I did it.

Mellon thanks for that link! I managed to get it to work using those commands in terminal.

Be happy to help anyone else with their Fedora 8 install of tmw if I can. Will share what I did to make it compile.
