7-08 release autopackage doesn't install on FC3 - n0whereman - 08-31-2006

Hi,

I'm no expert in autopackage, but it's quite strange - it reports everyting OK and then "Unable to prepare package VDrift."...

Fedora Core 3: Linux 2.6.12-1.1381_FC3 #1 Fri Oct 21 03:46:55 EDT 2005 i686 athlon i386 GNU/Linux, 1GB RAM

VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV18 [GeForce4 MX 4000 AGP 8x] (rev c1) (prog-if 00 [VGA]), 128MB video RAM

What happened? Are there any logs to look at?


Thanks..

I guess you need to install libopenal/libfreealut in the FC package manager. THen try again

FFuser,
I am having the same problem as n0whereman but I am using SuSe 10.1 and I have libopenal/libfreealut installed? Can you help me? -Bent

It might be a bad download? (incomplete or corrupt)

Guys,
Logged in as root and tryied to install the game and after I unpacked it
I typed scons install
and it said permission denied and I have the permissions set to 777?
Does this help? -Bent


- thelusiv - 10-04-2006

Bent, what release or package are you using? If the Linux source package for 2006-07-08, here's what you should do: first download, then unpack the file as a normal user (not root). Then, compile with the command
Code:
scons
after it finishes, if everything is successful, then become root and run
Code:
scons install
The reason I tell you to do this is that maybe you are trying to build the game in a place where you don't have permissions to perhaps? Anyway there's no need to use root until you actually install. Also, consider checking out the code from SVN since it has several bug fixes.

thelusiv,
I did that and I recived this error:
scons: *** No SConstruct file found.
File "/usr/lib/scons/SCons/Script/__init__.py", line 870, in _main
What does this mean? Thank you for your time -Bent


- thelusiv - 10-09-2006

Bent, it sounds like you are not using the source package. That one should have an SConstruct file. If you are using the source package, then maybe you're not in the right directory - when you unpack VDrift, there should be a subdirectory where all the files are. Enter that directory and then run scons, etc. as described above.

By the way, please give the latest version a try. There's a new autopackage, and source package. Click downloads above to get them.
