Title: version .4 on Linux
Post by: ScottL on August 24, 2005, 09:16:12 pm
Hi,

    I can easily get version .3 for Linux through the Debian respitories, but I am finding it impossible to find version .4.

Your friend,
Scott

What Debian version are you on (platform, release, et.c.)? As far as I can tell, current Debian unstable and testing contain UQM 0.4. On my local Debian mirror (ftp.fi.debian.org), uqm-0.4.0-1 is in contrib/games and included in the unstable and testing distributions. Debian stable has uqm-0.3-3.

If you're running stable, you should realise that you're running out-of-date versions of pretty much everything.

I think you can get UQM .4 for Debian from this website:
http://packages.debian.org/unstable/games/uqm.html

It also lists deps and such in case you have trouble installing.

What Debian version are you on
I'm using Kubuntu v5.04, it is heavily based off of Debian.

I usualy go to apt-get.com and get any repositories from there,  With .4 I found three, but all three did not work.  I ended up getting .4 after all with the music and voices.  I had to download the .deb files and install them using kpackage.

Thank you fro your help.

Your friend,
Scott

I wrote to soon :)

   The .4 program works perfectly witht he music and voices, but now synaptic thinks UQM is broken and wont do a system upgrade until I uninstall the UQM.  Do you know of any way to force the system to think it is not broken?

Your friend,
Scott

I would direct you to the apt-get manual page, an HTML version
of which can be found here:
http://www.die.net/doc/linux/man/man8/apt-get.8.html

I'm not an apt-get user, so I haven't tested this. However,
I'd pay special attention to the "--fix-broken" section
of the man page.
