Ok. Now I understand. However I still think that I have seen somewhere in the documentation that autopackage takes care of such things. Yes, but they also mention it doesn't really work for C++ projects. I see... Oh well. If you want I can prepare Mandriva 2005LE rpm's as soon as the CVS is stable....

Unfortunately, it has nothing to do with this. The problem is the following: Suppose (theoretically) strings were stored in the 1.02 ABI as "length, bytes, bytes, ..." (for example : "9FreeOrion"), the ABI version 2 of g++ now stores them as word, word, word,... ("F_r_e_O_r_i_o_n_") - now imagine a...

I think that providing autopackage resolves RPM based distros :) 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 thought autopackage has automatic resolving of ld depende...

It is implemented (here on my local version, not in CVS), but quite shaky atm. At least I managed to get the AI to order their scouts to explore. My general idea is to have many "advisors" (one for research, the other for expansion, the third for trade, and so on) each one makes recommondations abo...

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. From my poin...

Geoff... Wait a minute... Did I hear: Python ?! OMG. I'm currently occupied developing ultimate server management system for my to-be-launched-soon serverfarm. Guess in what language. ;) This is a part of larger project, mainly my own Linux distribution, that will at some point inherit AI (however t...

And once again. Does AI work in current CVS? Because it sits stupidly doing nothing in my FO games. And also I have noticed that if I launch freeorion alone I see in ai***.log that AI's are connecting to server and then receive termination error. However if I issue: freeoriond &; freeorion those err...

Yoghurt I'd like to ask you is it possible to tweak Scons to build static FO binary, but using OpenGL shared libs? And the second question. I have FO up and running (except those bugs I have posted) on Mandriva 2005LE and I was wondering if you'd be interested in rpms for this system if I'd created ...

Sure. I don't know how to post it however. Sourceforge bugtracker is running very slow for me. But I'll try to attach it to bug report.

Switching resolution actually does work from the options screen, but you have to quit FO and restart it for the change to take effect.. No it doesn't. When I'm trying to change to 1280x1024, restart FO it's still 1024x768. However it works from the command line. These are really missing features, n...

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. I've managed to compile FO, however I had to make some symlinks to this libGLU1 and I had to change paths in Scons configuration file and had ...

BTW. I'm trying to compile freeorion from cvs. It gives me a headache. I have resolved all dependencies, but when I issue scons on GiGi i get from the config.log: ld: cannot find -lGLU I have libMesaGLU1 and libMesaGLU1-devel installed. What the hell? Anyone could help? BTW. I wonder why don't you s...
