I was thrilled when I heared about this project. I left work early to give this baby a try but I ran in some problems. I run Debian and I think I got all the packages right. I downloaded GiGi and compiled it, figured out that I didn't needed ./autogen any more and thus ran scons in the root directory of FreeOrion with the following result:
scons: Reading SConscript files ...
Configuring for POSIX system...
Checking for pkg-config... ok
Checking for GiGiSDL >= 0.6.0... ok
Checking for log4cpp >= 0.3.4b... failed
Checking log4cpp version == 0.3.4b... no
have log4cpp install abeit version 0.2.8. Which is a bit higher than the version required(0.2.7). Figured this was not a big deal but it appears it is. So I downloaded the old version and tried to compile it. This (as written on the Wiki Compilation page) ran in some problems and so I editted the files Clock.cpp/Clock.hh as described on the Wiki. But still this does not compile. Ow, I also tried to point to the lib dir with
$: scons with_log4cpp_libdir=/usr/lib
That didnt help either.
I ran out of ideas. Can anybody help me? On a side note, I have a 500MHz Celeron 256MB does it even make sense to try and run it?
Thanks in advance!
