Installation

Post by delinquent »

I put elementary on my old laptop, so far it's pretty stable. I now realise that I'm pretty crap at using unix.

Can someone be a darling and show me what commands I need to enter in terminal to gain a copy of the 0.4 alpha build of dedicated?

Ta so much.

Looks like it's based on ubuntu.

Just add --enable-dedicated to the configure line and you'll be good to go.

I have a problem:

Code: Select all

./configure: line 9827: xml2-config: command not found
configure: error: Fatal error: the libxml2 configuration script xml2-config does not work/exist.
Am I pulling the 0.4 version? seems like the guide was written for 0.3. Anyway, there isn't a makefile, and the above is happening.

Hm
Tried using the bzr debs listed there, terminal complained of the lack of a public key. I tried the latest edition of bzr and got the crap above

Have you installed libxml2-dev?

It said that it installed the package the first time I ran apt_get update, afaik.
I'm assuming that to do it manually it's apt-get install libxml2-dev?

Edit: Now getting an error telling me that the pubic key isn't available. I gues bzr didn't install then. I'm slightly confused?

Also, after installing the styct 0.2 alpha I can't seem to start the server
It spouts: disable via /etc/default/armagetronad-styct-dedicated
My first thought was that it was already running, so I stopped it, and the process apparently went OK, but I still go the same message on trying to start the server.

I'm so confused

You should take a look into that file, then, and edit it accordingly.
(Following the 'teaching you how to think like a linux person' school here.)

Can you post the precise error you get when they say a public key is missing? Copy/pasting from terminal isn't hard.

That's sorted, I now have the error you quoted.

I looked into it, the file in question is actually shortcut to etc/default/armagetronad-styct

Which in turn is a folder -.-

Should I try apt-get --purge and then re-install? Or is there something else I should be looking at?

Ok, that's odd, but what's in it?

If it makes you feel better, sure. But it's only going to change anything if you messed up the contents of /etc yourself.

This is funny and everything... No, it isn't. That was a joke.

Never mind if you didn't get it.

That's strange delinquent, whenever I chose to install any of the server code in my linux os, example Ubuntu or Linux Mint, I get no problem.

The steps to installing a server in your os using the source is pretty simple. I don't know why you would need to go the lenghts of editing the /etc/ folders and have to deal with apt-get in the first place...

It seems there's something going on at your end that we're unaware of...

That is standard procedure (AFAIK, we just took it over from the official packages) for servers installed via .deb packages.

The folder just contains the maps and userdata...
I thought apt-get would prove simpler than ******* around with bzr...

I'll try again later on tonight.
