Help with Ubuntu

Post by Babby455 » 22 Nov 2010, 05:29

Ok so I am a complete n00b when it comes to Linux. I am running Ubuntu 9.10, and the compile guide is not helping me out at all. can anyone give me basic instructions on how to install this? Here's what I did, and I got hung up on the configuring/ installing portion.

$ tar xfz warzone2100-2.3.5.tar.gz
tar: warzone2100-2.3.5.tar.gz: Cannot read: Is a directory
This is already a nonsense. Where did you get a directory of the same name?? This should be an archive you downloaded.

Like Hao said, you didn't extract the file properly.
Where did you download the archive to?

Subsequently to the failed extraction, you created a directory and tried a bunch of commands (in an empty directory).

Be careful about using "rm -rf".

Hi babby455. This is a old code that I found here and that I have modified since. I guess I can repeat it.

Install.sh :

Code: Select all

    echo creating ~/warzone_2.3.5
    cd ~
    mkdir warzone_2.3.5
    cd warzone_2.3.5

    echo installing libs
    sudo apt-get install subversion build-essential automake flex bison \
    libpopt-dev libpng12-dev libsdl1.2-dev libsdl-net1.2-dev \
    libopenal-dev libphysfs-dev libvorbis-dev libtheora-dev libglc-dev \
    libsqlite3-dev libglc-dev

    echo downloading trunk
    #svn co https://warzone2100.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/warzone2100/trunk .
    svn co https://warzone2100.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/warzone2100/branches/2.3

    echo "autogen&&configure"
    ./autogen.sh
    ./configure
    echo running make
    make
    echo you can run "make install" right now to install the game globally on the computer. But you can (recommanded) run the game right now at ~/warzone_2.3.5/src/warzone2100
But something is going wrong with this code I can't figure what... The last three commands don't work well for me (autogen.sh,configure and make). I had to do them manually each time (can someone fix this small bug ?)

the older version of the install script from http://developer.wz2100.net/wiki/LinuxC ... version=38

Code: Select all

#!/bin/bash
echo creating ~/warzone
cd ~
mkdir warzone
cd warzone

echo installing libs
sudo apt-get install subversion build-essential automake flex bison \
 libpopt-dev libpng12-dev libsdl1.2-dev libsdl-net1.2-dev \
 libopenal-dev libphysfs-dev libvorbis-dev libtheora-dev libglc-dev \
 libsqlite3-dev libglc-dev

echo downloading trunk
svn co https://warzone2100.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/warzone2100/trunk .

echo "autogen&&configure"
./autogen.sh
./configure

echo running make
make
echo DONE!
echo   run the following command for a system-wide install:
echo     sudo make install
In the post above you have

Code: Select all

svn co https://warzone2100.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/warzone2100/branches/2.3
it looks like your missing . from it

Code: Select all

svn co https://warzone2100.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/warzone2100/branches/2.3 .

Yeah but if what cybersphinx say is right we won't be able to do this very long with svn. We'll have to change that installation guide...

Watch where you put the 'f' option for tar. It means file, so tar was told to extract the file named z.

Or the file z from the archive warzone2100-2.3.5.tar.gz or something silly like that. :|

This is simply wrong. The order of the options does not matter.

The original poster was having problems because he was not in the directory he thought he was.

I'm not sure about the simply part as they put most of the documentaion into info pages. :P

This old way of writing `tar' options can surprise even experienced
users. For example, the two commands:

tar cfz archive.tar.gz file
tar -cfz archive.tar.gz file

are quite different. The first example uses `archive.tar.gz' as the
value for option `f' and recognizes the option `z'. The second
example, however, uses `z' as the value for option `f' -- probably not
what was intended.
You are right. It doesn't matter with the old style options.
