Uber Stupid Question

Post by I_Died_Once » Fri Mar 25, 2005 4:08 pm

Finally getting around to compiling the source for 2.0.2, and at the end of my configure script, I get this

BZFlag-2.0.2.20050325 with the following:
curses: -lncurses
no SDL!
libcurl disabled - MOTD, global bans, etc. disabled
bzadmin
no bzflag client binary!

Does that look "right" to y'all, or am I doing anything wrong? It doesn't give me a client! I have to play on the 2.0.0 client (which I use this machine for my server primarily, so no BIG deal, but still)

I surely did install the rpm for SDL, why it says "no SDL" is beyond me.

Thoughts? Suggestions? Should I buy a bullet and rent a gun?

it can't find the openGL or the DSL headers, make sure they are in the GCC paths.

when building you want to make sure you install the SDL "DEV" package. the base SDL package just has the runtime librarys that binary apps need, it does not contain the headers and build librarys that you need to compile an application with SDL. You should also check your package manaer to see if there is an openGL dev package, or posibly a dev package for your video driver since many drivers include there own specific openGL implementation.

libCurl is a good thing to have too, but not 100% needed. BZ uses it ot get a number of non critical URLS it needs, like maps, textures, banlist, motd and the like.

::points at the win32 user and laughs!!!::

But seriously... Is there a 2.0.2 client?

EDIT: Yes, there is, I'm on the high road to figuring this out

Windoze does really get on your nerves sometimes, which is why is use 98 SE, which is less prone to taking a vacation in the middle of your schoolwork. But, i am starting to get sick of that, too. one of my friends is going to get me a copy of Linux, or Unix, i forgot which. I am very Excited! Is either one that good?

Linux is great, but it's almost like a left handed, completley brand new approach to computing all together. I'm loving it, personally, learning all the intricate ins and outs.

Back to topic...

This is what I get when running the config script

BZFlag-2.0.2.20050326 with the following:
curses: -lncurses
SDL
libcurl disabled - MOTD, global bans, etc. disabled
bzadmin
bzflag client


I've installed the suse 9.2 rpm for libcurl , and even compiled it from souce, and it still tells me that it's disabled. Anyone able to tell me how to enable libcurl?

EDIT:

Found this in my bz configure script

checking for curl >= 7.9.5... ./configure: line 3990: curl-config: command not found
FAILED
configure: WARNING: curl-config was not found


Hope this help...?

if you don't know, then you don't have to post about it.

make sure you have an install of the libcurl dev kit, it should be a package in your package system. I'm not totaly familiar with suse, but I asume it has some package system.

OK, got it going.

Just in case someone on SuSE needs to know...

1) add one of the suse ftp mirros as an instalation source.

2) pull up YaST, and choose to install/revmove software

search for curl, and it'll pull up what you need.

For the matter - I did not find an actual source for curl-dev. None. I didn't search the armpits of the internet for it, but it wasn't on the official curl site. Or at least I couldn't find it. So yeah.

...and cool people use non-windows operating systems.
