Hi Eddy, thanks for stepping in here, I'm just -EOUTOFTIME right now :(.

Seems like you didn't look at the latest uploaded version to revu... it's http://revu.tauware.de/details.py?upid=2849 (if you follow that link, and a newer version has been uploaded to revu, you'll need to click on the latest date to switch to this upload. I know, it's a little bit annoying that revu doesn't highlight what exact version s.o. is looking at.) > > These are the issues I have seen: > - build depends on libxerces26-dev (debian has 27) Nice one, ubuntu still has both versions around :/ > - not gcc 4.1 ready (lots of extraqualification erros) This is fixed in the latter upload. > - !!! the build process does *not* stop at any of these errors !!! Oh, crap, just saw it: "-cd mk/linux && jam" Please note that it won't stop compiling the targets if one fails due to jam's nature. IIRC "jam -q" could do that trick, but not sure though. > - the glest binary is, of course, not created because many object > files are broken, thus the dh_install rule fails when looking for that > file > - I think there are some places where the result of a rule in a target > is ignored, which might be problematic > > I'll try to package this game after I test it some more ;-) The version I built for ubuntu works quite well, but I didn't test it on unstable yet. Also I didn't come around testing multiplayer. (And the AI always beats me *g*). As a side note: the glest script will link the binary and the game data to ~/.glest, which I think is not the very best approach to do so. However that way it's possible to dump custom maps to ~/.glest, which otherwise doesn't seem possible. I didn't look at any code bits yet, maybe glest could be customized to honour both DATADIR and ~/.glest. Cheers, Stefan.
