Title: Error compiling on Fedora Core 4
Post by: Joti on August 01, 2006, 11:15:16 pm
I just got this error when I tried to compile uqm-0.5.0:

make: *** [obj/debug/src/sc2code/libs/graphics/sdl/2xscalers_mmx.c.o] Error 1

This is the output of  " uqm config":

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Assembly acceleration in the released 0.5 source breaks on 64 bits machines. Either disable assembly acceleration, or use the CVS source.

As meep-eep said, there are still some minor oddities with UQM on 64-bit platforms; you will probably have to compile in 32-bit mode ("-m32" as a compiler option on x64) to get all the hand-optimised MMX assembly goodness from version 0.5. The CVS version is continually receiving 64-bit fixes, so you'll probably have better luck with that.

Thanks, It compiled nicely with asm disabled. I got another problem, though. When I attempt to run uqm, it terminates with:

What can I do about it? I can't find any default key configuration to copy by hand.

Edit: Never mind, Meep-Eep helped me through IRC. Thanks.

SOmething inside me is thinking,
"A 16-bit game is compiling and running on a 64-bit computer...
14 years later. Wow."

And another part is thinking, of course it is, these people are
