UQM Mods in Linux
« on: December 05, 2006, 05:33:19 pm »

Is there any way to install the Time or De-Cleansing Mods in Linux? I am running Fedora Core 6 and uqm 5.0.0

Sorry, the UQM version is 0.5.0 not 5.0.0...hope someone can help me out.

Edit: I can get Kor-Ah Death's savegames working by placing them in my /home/user/.uqm/save/ directory!

Download the source code and compile as usual. BTW, it would be useful to have diffs for those mods so one wouldn't have to:
  • Download and recompile the whole game
  • Use the version the mod was applied to instead of the latest CVS

Novus, thanks...I downloaded the source code with that same intention, but I realized that it isn't just the MOD source code, but the entire game! Do I have to compile the whole game just to use the MODs? How do I compile the game/MODs? Once compiled, how do I use the MODs?

Any help is appreciated, for us Linux users...this thread might be very helpful.

That's what I was complaining about. Wink

You get a replacement binary file, which you execute instead of the normal one.

See doc/users/unixinstall in the source package for build instructions.

I was gonna do the diff thing at first but i thought of the people who are command line challenged (like me at first), but now that I can see a demand for it i'll probably make the patches, heck maybe i'll also make some patches that patch the .exe tioo.

but that probably requires certain software for the exe patches, I know how to make diffs now.

So do the De-Cleansing and the Time mod work on linux, I haven't tested them yet, i've been having trouble with the FMV mod, but I have a feeling that i'm doing something wrong or i might've missed a step.

Kor-Ah, Novus,

I haven't been able to test the game/MOD compiling in Linux. I originally installed the game from my Add/Remove Software app in Fedora Core 6, and everything works great...BUT, I wanted to play the game with the De-Cleasing mod so that I could take my time exploring and such, which is what I love about SC2. When I try to run the command:
Code:
./build sh uqm
, I get the following error:

Code:
[rortiz@localhost uqm-0.5.0-KH-DCM-S]$ ./build.sh uqm
'echo -n' capable echo found.
Sed stream editor found.
tr found.
Make found.
GNU C compiler found.

Install all the dependancies listed in the INSTALL file first. If you're installing from packages, be sure to install the development packages.
In this case, you're missing libSDL.

Is there a list of the .rpm's I need? I read the INSTALL file but I can't find many of the packages or dependencies...the INSTALL file only lists the URLs of the package makers, but it doesn't specify the package names Sad

There is no such list. You'll have to use the FC package browser (whatever that is).

Fedora Core 6 use Pitrut and yum as its package installers. I've had trouble compiling
the cvs version on Fedora 6.

You'll need the Software Development Tools pakage and SDL-devel. Actually, all of
the SDL packages. Ten minutes with Pirut and you'll be good to go.

Well, being that i'm a Linux noob, I think I'll wait for a package of the MOD instead of compiling the whole game, just too much trouble.

Try submitting a feature request to get the mods put in the official UQM (as non-default options, of course!).
