build tmw on FreeBSD 5.3

Post by kermIT » Fri Mar 11, 2005 1:18 pm

Hello Everyone,

iam trying to build tmw-0.0.10 on FreeBSD 5.3. I successfully build guichan-0.20 (with sdl and sdl_image) but configure cant find the guichan_sdl library....I dont understand cause configure seems to find the guichan library which is in the same directory: /usr/local/lib

output from configure:

checking for g++... g++
checking for C++ compiler default output... a.out
checking whether the C++ compiler works... yes
checking whether we are cross compiling... no
checking for suffix of executables...
checking for suffix of object files... o
checking whether we are using the GNU C++ compiler... yes
checking whether g++ accepts -g... yes
checking for gcc... gcc
checking whether we are using the GNU C compiler... yes
checking whether gcc accepts -g... yes
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether make sets ${MAKE}... yes
checking for _init in -lguichan... yes
checking for _init in -lguichan_sdl... no

-------------END OF CONFIGURE-OUTPUT------------------

can you help me, please. I played the game under windows and its so cool...why cant i play it under freeBSD????

thanks for any help!

best wishes, Tobi

If you really think the configure script is wrong and that you do have libguichan_sdl, you can try taking out the check and see if it compiles. I guess this'd be easiest when you would check out from CVS and remove the two lines from configure.ac before running autogen.sh, but to create the configure script you need recent versions of automake and autoconf installed.

Alternatively if you check out from CVS it is still possible to work without configure and make with:

"make -f makefile.static"

Thank you Bjorn, thanks a lot,
I didnt believed my eyes but i could actually run tmw on FreeBSD.....
Iam trying to merge my notes into a build-instruction-list for FreeBSD 5.3 and send it to you, if wanted ;-)
Thanks again, and good luck for the future

Cool. :-) Sure, if needed we will include a specific instructions file for FreeBSD, you can send it to me. It's strange that configure didn't find an apparently working guichan_sdl library, that's still an unclear issue.

Actually that sounds fairly promising for building on OSX as well, since it's at least closely related to FreeBSD, and I was running into guichan issues. I would definitely be interested in those updated build instructions.
