Statically linked releases up to rev2770 include a bug: they will NOT run on kernels smaller then 2.6.22.

This bug is fixed in newer statically linked revisions, starting from rev2771.

Have a look at:

My webspace has moved and is now located at:

I just managed to package a version that should run many actual linux distributions.

http://freeorion.psitronic.de/download/ ... 386.tar.gz

This version was compiled on debian 5.0 (lenny).

For compatibility reasons, many shared libs are shipped with this package. If anybody thinks that some copyrights or license could be hurt, please report instantly to me!

You MUST run this version using the wrapper-script "freeorion", do NOT execute the binary inside the directory application. This will not work in almost every case.

Please test and report bugs :-)

/Edit: positive tested on:
  • Debian Lenny
    with GeForce 7600GS using proprietary Nvidia driver 180.29
  • Debian Lenny (2.6.26-1-amd64)
    with GeForce 9800GT using proprietary Nvidia driver 180.44 x86_64
  • Debian testing Linux nathan 2.6.27.4 #6 SMP PREEMPT Sun Nov 9 08:57:10 CET 2008 i686 GNU/Linux
    with GeForce 8700M GT using proprietary Nvidia driver 177.80
  • Debian Etch Linux version 2.6.25.7
    with nvidia G70 [GeForce 7600 GS] using proprietary Nvidia driver 180.29 x86_64
  • Ubuntu 8.10
    with nvidia G71 [GeForce 7900 GS] using proprietary Nvidia driver
  • Ubuntu 9.04
    with ATI Radeon Mobility X600 using ATI open source drivers
  • Debian Sid (2.6.26-1; arch amd64)
    with NVidia GeForce 7200SE using proprietary Nvidia driver 180.29 / x86_64

Should this go up on the SF.net downloads page?

Hello, I am maintaining the freeorion package inside the users repository of Archlinux; I run into this error when I try to run freeorion:
Code:
arkham ~/builds/freeorion/freeorion $  ./freeorion
Following into my basedir
CWD: /home/arkham/builds/freeorion/freeorion/application
   libpython2.5.so.1.0 => not found
python2.5 missing. Using shipped version.
PYTHONHOME=python2.5
./freeorion: error while loading shared libraries: libtiff.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

The problem can be solved by symlinking the library to libtiff.so, but this practice is kinda ugly; I was wondering if you could help me :)

The next release I will deliver a libtiff.so with the package. Could you try this package here:
http://freeorion.psitronic.de/download/ ... tic.tar.gz

Different GiGi libs need libtiff - maybe this dependency can be turned of if tiff is not used?

For Windows, I had to make a Config.h file containing, in part:
Code:
#ifndef _GG_Config_h_
#define _GG_Config_h_

#define GG_USE_DEVIL_IMAGE_LOAD_LIBRARY 0
#define GG_HAVE_LIBJPEG 0
#define GG_HAVE_LIBPNG 1
#define GG_HAVE_LIBTIFF 0

#endif // _GG_Config_h_

Which I assume removes any tiff dependency. Presumably it should be similar on Linux.

This works perfectly :)

I think you must change the readme. Where it say
Code:
1. Install
============
- Download the latest archiv by
   executing the following commands in a console / command-line prompt:
     cd /tmp
     wget http://psitronic.de/div/FO/latest.tar.gz
   or downloading it with your browser and put it into /tmp

Code:
...
     wget http://freeorion.psitronic.de/download/latest.tar.gz
...
.

Thanks you for compile the game.

Downloaded and installed the 'latest' linux version. Get this when I run it...

libpython2.5.so.1.0 => not found
python2.5 missing. Using shipped version.
PYTHONHOME=python2.5
No protocol specified

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Looks quite similar to the issue posted here: viewtopic.php?p=36363#p36363

Grabbing various bits that kroddn posted...

Can you execute "glxinfo" in a command line? If yes, please upload the result of its output here.

Which graphic card do you have? (There are known problems with ATI cards.)

Does an earlier release of FreeOrion run, like v0.3.11? See here:
