RHEL6/CentOS6 & Fedora 14 compile steps for 2.4.0

Post by jroysdon » Mon Jul 18, 2011 6:21 am

I've found this works for RHEL6/CentOS6 (which is Fedora 12/13 based) and Fedora 14:

sudo yum install bc desktop-file-utils SDL-devel curl-devel ncurses-devel mesa-libGLU-devel glew-devel libidn-devel libtool zlib-devel glew libidn zlib libidn-devel zlib-devel c-ares-devel gcc-c++ libICE-devel libSM-devel libX11-devel libXext-devel libXxf86vm-devel libcurl-devel ncurses-devel rpm-libs ftgl-devel

wget "http://downloads.sourceforge.net/projec ... rror=voxel"

tar xvjf bzflag-2.4.0.tar.bz2
cd bzflag-2.4.0


# Install in $HOME if desired:
#./configure --prefix=$HOME/bzflag-2.4.0/

# Otherwise use defaults:


# Skip "su -" if installing in $HOME
su -

make install

# Install defaults:
# Prefix: /usr/local
# Binaries: /usr/local/bin
# Plugins: /usr/local/lib/bzflag
# Manual pages: /usr/local/share/man

I have not been able to get it to compile with the same steps for RHEL5/CentOS5 (Fedora Core 6-based), which I use solely for bzfs, but I've been looking for a reason to upgrade. However, EL5 does not have libcurl-devel, but I believe curl-devel is the equivalent.

I've also submitted the following RedHat Bug #722813 against Fedora 15 / Rawhide to get 2.4.0 into Fedora 16 https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=722813.

Running Fedora 12. When running make I get stuck with this error.

That's not an error message, that's just saying there WAS an error. Paste the stuff above that.
