Would it be possible to provide packages for the moste commonly used distros?
I use Ubuntu and without your statically linked version I wouldn't be able to start the game at all.
Compiling for myself is quite an issue - I was forced to recompile some python libs and was never sure if the new libs could break my system, so I am just not willing to do this myself.

My guess is: with this version of yours, it should be quite easy to provide some .deb or .rpm packages.

It should be no problem to take the tar.gz and build a deb out of it, containing the statically linked version. This then should work on ever debian-based distro. But - I do not have the time to figure that out for now.

This version works excellent for Ubuntu 7.04. Thank you for providing it, kroddn!

Do you have accelerated video-drivers installed?

Please execute:

strace -f -o /tmp/trace ./freeorion

And then upload the resulting /tmp/strace somewhere. Maybe i can find out where your problem comes from.

I tried it out on Debian etch, works beautifully. Thanks! Is there any reason why this isn't the default installation method for Linux, considering that freeorion is too early in development for Distro support.

Indeed, thanks kroddn.

There are reportedly compatibility problems between different distros that will prevent this version from running in some cases. See earlier in this thread for discussion.

It seems to work great for debian-like distros though, and there is a link on the FreeOrion download page on the wiki.

Some problems occur when using python2.5 - on Ubuntu 7.10 I had to install python2.4 to fix some error-messages appearing on the console.

To my knowledge, static linking means no dynamic library dependencies. As far as I can see, v2379 is still depending on libGL and a few others.

It's necessary to link against OpenGL dynamically to use correct implementation(nvidia, ati...). It won't cause problems on different distros because OpenGL API is standardized.

Post subject:  Re: Statically linked Linux-version

loonycyborg is right. With "statically linked" I meant "almost all libs statically linked". The main libs, which should be available on modern distributions, can be linked dynamically.

I released a new Version (SVN FO revision 2450 / GG revision 645):

http://psitronic.de/div/FO/

Now there is a Loki Installer which helps installing the game. Just run setup.sh inside the archive. The installer creates a system-wide symlink "freeorion" and menu-entries, if you wish to.

Read http://psitronic.de/div/FO/README.txt for instructions.
