REVAMPED D2X-XL REPOSITORY

OK, guys, I think I have the D2X-XL Debian binary installation packages in a working state. :D I have had to test it in portions, due to my slow Internet connection - that is, I still have not done a clean install. But, in portions, it works for me. There may still be installation issues. I will try...

While splitting and rebuilding the packages, I found that the textures directory looks wrong. Anyone interested in trying this, please wait until I post that I have corrected it. I'm sorry for all the glitches in this. PS False alarm, the textures in the demo look OK :oops: The repository is offline...

dividing up this package

One of the best things about the Debian Package System (used also by Ubuntu and Debian derivative distros) is that when you install a program, any supporting programs and libraries that are needed ("dependencies") are automatically pulled in. In the case of d2x-xl-demo, this automatic depe...

Repository Fixed

I finally figured out what the trouble was with the repository. Anyway, It's fixed now, and the problem with the missing hog file is also fixed, so please try again to install this. The repository information is now completely different. Therefore, please follow the revised instructions at http://ww...

Debian repository broken

I just realized that the repository isn't working. I'm very sorry. I saw a report of failure but I though it was just momentary failure of my server. I'll fix this as soon as possible.

OK, the package d2x-xl-demo has been updated to fix the incorrectly named hog file. http://www.lstandish.com/linux/d2x-xl-demo There are a lot of other improvements: 1. Menu entry added under games/arcade (untested). If the menu entry doesn't work, let me know, start the program via "Run Comman...

Hi, I missed this whole conversation due to the time difference (I'm in Costa Rica). Aus-RED-5, if you have only one password, then that is also the admin password. At the command line, you just put "sudo" in front of any command, and that command runs as root. To run a series of commands ...

Aus-RED-5, did you skip the step of executing d2x-xl_setup, which installs all the necessary directory structure under /home/<login>/.d2x-xl/? Just open a "console" or terminal and type that command in as a regular user (not root). I have a great idea! I'm write a wrapper shell script inst...

Thanks for checking this out. I see there are some glitches to work through. I'll have to build a repilca of the package on my home machine (using the same binaries as in the package) to do testing. I think the problem may have to do with the graphics drivers. D2X-XL requires the GL and GLU librarie...

Debian/Ubuntu package available for testing

I'm too tired to write much about this now, but here is a link to a page with instructions and links for the Debian package: http://www.lstandish.com/linux/d2x-xl-demo There is also a repository. Binaries and libraries were compiled on Debian Etch (the previous stable version) to allow more backward...

Your autogen.sh/configure scripts are OK. My problem was I didn't use --with-sdl-exec-prefix and --with-sdl-prefix.

My plan now is to compile d2x-xl-demo-1.14.xx-i386.deb on my VPS in the USA, where bandwidth is not a problem. From there I could email to you, or just put it up for download. At home all I have is dialup (actually GPRS - Internet over GSM telephone, which gives about the same bandwidth as old-fashi...

first demo D2X-XL demo Debian/Ubuntu package ready

I spent the entire day today struggling with the compiling/linking of d2x-xl (v1.14.84) for the Debian binary package. :( I finally decided to have the D2X-XL demo package provide its own versions of SDL and SDL-mixer, stored at /usr/local/lib instead of the Debian/Ubuntu default /usr/lib. That way ...

Linux binary installer

Hey, "topic update notifications" from this forum are working again! Anyway, back to the subject of this thread: the creation of a Debian binary installation package for d2x-xl. In fact I have new ideas on this. I think that in addition to a Debian package, there should be a universal Linu...
