Just a note: we need music in .ogg format, not .mp3

Of course we can convert mp3 -> ogg but this results in loss of quality. So, if you can reencode from the originals, it would be much better.

OK, I will try to provide .debs for Debian sarge and unstable, hope they run under ubuntu

All others will have to compile from source; we need to get FO 0.3 out of the door ASAP.

Nope, because it's impossible. ABI, not API

See here what wikipedia has to say about ABIs.

I've uploaded a patch that should make GiGi compile with Boost 1.33

Download it here, then change into the GG/include directory, and do

Code: Select all

You will also need the serialization module of boost. SConstruct's configure does not yet check for all required boost modules. You'll also need boost's signals lib, filesystem, graph and thread, IIRC. Edit: It seems like you are trying to compile with boost 1.33. GiGi does only support 1.32, not 1....

I still find it better that peoples could make treaties with each other, for example, transferring command of particular fleets to another player (for as long as the treaty stays in effect). This way is more flexible than requiring an alliance for this to be possible. If some of my enemies wants to ...

Re: FO Building, Branching, Stability

What prevents you to distribute FO with all required dynamic libs in its own directory and simple updating LD_LIBRARY_PATH in startup script? The fact that One of these libs is the Standard C++ Library, therefore requiring to include every library C++ FO links to GL libs should be dynamically linke...

I was thinking yesterday about this and I have few ideas that could be implemented as a base for future AI system, even when the system is not finished/unbalanced. However I agree with you that if the Python scripting is not integrated there's no point getting overly excited about this. It is imple...

Of course it would. Only that the binary does not work and probably never will due to incompatible C++ ABIs :(
This is one of the few things Windows can do better than Linux.

I've stopped regularly updating the entire system because updates sometimes save over customized config files and can trash my rocksolid setup. Well, that's what stable is for. Only security updates, and guaranteed to leave your setup alone and not change any behaviour at all. BTW: Debian Sarge was...

Linux users: which Distribution are you running?

I would like to get an overview of the distributions we should provide packages for, so please tell me what distribution you are using. If I forgot any, please post the name of your distribution. Please post the version of your distribution, too. I do not want to make a list consisting of "SuSE 8.0"...

Oh yeah? I've done zillions of compilations and I know how to resolve problems. I have /usr/X11R6/lib in ld.so.conf. I did ldconfig and Scons didn't find it. Once again, SCons did not look for it. It's g++ who didn't find it. FO is working now, but I found some bugs in it. Especially the directory ...

BTW. I wonder why don't you stick to KISS (keep it simple stupid) rules like autoconf/autogen that everybody knows. It would be much simpler to compile this marvelous game. I had used automake for FO, but the system was slow as hell. SCons will be much better, but the current SConstruct was just a ...

You will need log4cpp.

But I've given up hope to provide shared lib binaries. We might provide some statically linked version of FO, although I think this will disable hardware-accelerated OpenGL.

Anyway, I'm heading for debian/rules now.
