Quite a difference! The new version(r5378) plays a lot better than the version from the arch repo(r5096). Its faster and the game has become harder as well.

Updated build to rev 5389 and included a little readme.txt for some background information on this.

GeofftheMedio has finally worn me down. ;)
Here is the latest build - this time as a FreeOrion-5396-Linux-Test.tar.gz.
To extract it, use:

Code: Select all

rm -Rf freeorion # remove old version
tar -xJvf FreeOrion-5396-Linux-Test.tar.gz
This will give you a "freeorion" directory from which you'll be able to run FreeOrion like this:

Code: Select all

cd freeorion && ./freeorion

Running ./freeorion from latest 5553 test build on Ubuntu 12.10 x86_64 with ia32_libs installed:

Code: Select all

[ Process PID=11741 runs in 32 bit mode. ]
Following into my basedir
CWD: /usr/share/freeorion
Usage: ld.so [OPTION]... EXECUTABLE-FILE [ARGS-FOR-PROGRAM...]
You have invoked `ld.so', the helper program for shared library executables.
This program usually lives in the file `/lib/ld.so', and special directives
in executable files using ELF shared libraries tell the system's program
loader to load the helper program from this file.  This helper program loads
the shared libraries needed by the program executable, prepares the program
to run, and runs it.  You may invoke this helper program directly from the
command line to load and run an ELF executable file; this is like executing
that file itself, but always uses this helper program from the file you
specified, instead of the helper program file specified in the executable
file you run.  This is mostly of use for maintainers to test new versions
of this helper program; chances are you did not intend to run this program.

  --list                list all dependencies and how they are resolved
  --verify              verify that given object really is a dynamically linked
			object we can handle
  --inhibit-cache       Do not use /etc/ld.so.cache
  --library-path PATH   use given PATH instead of content of the environment
			variable LD_LIBRARY_PATH
  --inhibit-rpath LIST  ignore RUNPATH and RPATH information in object names
			in LIST
  --audit LIST          use objects named in LIST as auditors
ldd: exited with unknown exit code (127)
Fatal error in CDE_begin_execve [cde.c:1837]

Thanks!
I'll set up a VM and see if I can get it to work.

Works just fine in my VirtualBox VM without installing anything other than screen (for convenience not FO).
uname -a says:
Linux orion-VirtualBox 3.5.0-21-generic #32-Ubuntu SMP Tue Dec 11 18:51:59 UTC 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Although the world is going Xmas crazy these days, I plan to release my usual weekly test builds tomorrow. Do you think you'll get around to provide a build for Linux? I intend to do it tomorrow afternoon (as you're in Germany, we share the same time zone).
