Linux client partially runs on Debian
« on: June 12, 2011, 04:52:17 am »
I downloaded and installed the 2.3.1 packages on debian unstable, ufoai, ufoai-common, ufoai-data, ufoai-map-sources, ufoai-radiant, ufoai-server, ufoai-server-data and ufoai-tools.

The game starts up, and I am able to go into campaign mode, though the diagostics show some things missing, such as sound files:

Code: [Select]
M_Start: Could not load 'van_theme' background track
CL_LanguageInit: language settings are stored in configuration: en
...using language: en_US.utf8

The last time I tried, I found that I was never able to go to the site, so this time I tried skirmish mode. That was less than successful...

Code: [Select]
Shutdown gametype 'Campaign mode'
Change gametype to 'Skirmish mode'
------- Loading game.so -------
not found at '/usr/lib/ufoai'
not found at '/home/storm/.ufoai/2.3.1/base'
not found at './base'
not found at '/usr/share/ufoai/base'

music change to van_theme (from van_theme)
music change to van_theme (from van_theme)

game.so does exist in /usr/lib/games/ufoai/base. Since one of the search paths for game.so was ./base, I started the game from /usr/lib/games/ufoai. Still had the same crash.

Could someone help me get this running reliably on my setup? Because eventually, you have to go in and manage your team...

Thanks,

just create a symlink - this is a bug in the package:

Code: [Select]
ln -s /usr/lib/games/ufoai/base/game.so /usr/share/ufoai/base/game.so

Thanks Mattn. That worked. I'm still seeing other things like missing music. Would it buy me anything to grab the sources and build my own debs? or will I run into the same boat without digging into the source code?
