1  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Technical Issues / Uqm repository difficulty on: June 23, 2005, 02:17:57 pm
Hey again, I got the new version working for me I'm happy to say, gave up and went to the uqm Debian repository and redownloaded them all as .debs.. and the game worked great!
But then I started having a problem using Synaptic, telling me every time I started synaptic or apt-get that I had dependency problems stemming from the way I installed the game, so I uninstalled and tried to re-install, this time adding the repo to my sources and using the package manager, but I get error when I try to install:
 Depends: libc6 (>=2.3.2.ds1-21) but 2.3.2.ds1-20ubuntu13 is to be installed
 Depends: libvorbis0a (>=1.1.0) but 1.0.1-1 is to be installed
 Depends: libvorbisfile3 (>=1.1.0) but 1.0.1-1 is to be installed
Depends: uqm-content but it is not going to be installed

I'm not sure I understand that..I have those packages already, they're all up-to-date, and I tried re-installing them and then installing the uqm package, but that didn't work either. Any suggestions? I know I can run the game fine if I just use those packages, I wish I could tell Synaptic to just disregard those dependency issues and forget about it, but I don't think it can do that, can it?
2  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Technical Issues / Re: SDL initialization error on my machine on: June 22, 2005, 12:37:12 am
Cool, that's exactly the stuff I needed to know, thank you very much. I got the sound working now on the old version thanks to that info, and I'm pretty sure I'll be able to get the new one working now too, once I mess with it a little more. You were right, there was a SDL package compiled for x11, even one compiled specifically for ESD. I hadn't added non-main repositories to my apt-get yet cause I just formatted, and so didn't see the packages. Oh well..

Anyway, thanks again for the help, see you later.
3  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Technical Issues / SDL initialization error on my machine on: June 21, 2005, 09:56:31 pm
Sup guys. I've been trying to install the newest version from source code on my Ubuntu system, and I've come to the conclusion that I suck at installing from source, haha. I don't have much problems running the older version of the game that I installed from a .deb off of the Debian repositories, but I'd really like to play the newest version, I hope somebody can give me a little advice.
The error I get when I try to run the newer version is
Initializing base SDL functionality.
Using SDL version 1.2.8 (compiled with 1.2.8)
Could not initialize SDL: No available video device.

When I run the old version it says

Initializing SDL (pure).
SDL driver used: x11
SDL initialized.

So I guess I'm kinda curious how I get the new version of the game to tell SDL that my video device is x11, or if I missed out on getting some particular dependency?

I was also having problems with the older version and trying to get it to use ESD for sound, but I don't know if that's going to be the case in the new version cause I haven't gotten that far in running it yet, but any hints on that would be appreciated too, I tried using an argument of --sound=ESD but it didn't work. Is there something else about the syntax of sound arguments that I'm missing, or perhaps something else I'm supposed to specify?
