tutorial works (patrick, 04/16/07)

Ubuntu Versions

Installing Orxonox was tested on Ubuntu Dapper Drake (6.06), Edgy Eft (6.10) and Feisty Fawn (7.04).

Installing the Libraries

wraith user $ sudo aptitude install libsdl1.2-dev libsdl-image1.2-dev libsdl-ttf2.0-dev libsdl-mixer1.2-dev libsdl-net1.2-dev libqt4-dev libglut3-dev libglew-dev libopenal-dev libvorbis-dev libavformat-dev libcurl3-dev liblualib50-dev
...

Installing developer tools

wraith user $ sudo aptitude install subversion automake1.9 g++

Getting the Source & Data

Check out the source and Data via svn anonymous, this will download the hole project to the directory orxonox-dir

wraith user $ svn co http://svn.orxonox.net/orxonox.OLD/trunk orxonox-dir/trunk
wraith user $ svn co http://svn.orxonox.net/data/trunk orxonox-dir/data/trunk

You won't be able to commit (check in) anything with the anonymous repository. You have to ask us for user/pass combination. If you have already an account check it out like this:

wraith user $ svn co https://svn.orxonox.net/orxonox.OLD/trunk orxonox-dir/trunk
wraith user $ svn co https://svn.orxonox.net/data/trunk orxonox-dir/data/trunk 

You will be asked for user name and password, that you have from us.

Compiling

Just change into the trunk directory, execute configure and make….

wraith user $ cd ./orxonox-dir/trunk/
wraith user $ ./autogen.sh
wraith user $ ./configure
...
wraith user $ make

Playing

wraith user $ cd ./orxonox-dir/trunk/src

wraith user $ ./orxonox

Select the data file orxonox/data/trunk/data.oxd in the menu and play!

Ubuntu package (OUTDATED)

Instead of compiling Orxonox you can also get the Ubuntu packages here http://people.ee.ethz.ch/~psachs

or you can add the following source to /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb http://people.ee.ethz.ch/~psachs edgy games

Known Bugs

If you have an ATI card you probably have to start Orxonox with the following command (If you compiled it yourself its ./orxonox instead of orxonox):

env R300_SPAN_DISABLE_LOCKING="true" orxonox 

If you get an error message (while compiling) that 'msr.h' is missing you have to copy it from the following path. (If you have a different kernel version the path may differ)

sudo cp /usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.17-10/include/asm-i386/msr.h /usr/include/asm-i386/msr.h 

If you get an error message '/usr/bin/ld cannot find -llualib' use the following command to solve the problem:

cd /usr/lib/
sudo ln -s  liblualib50.a liblualib.a
