FreeOrion

Post by freereign » Thu Mar 27, 2008 21:27

Hello, this is my first post on these forums. I just downloaded the mini-ed iso and am planning on installing it this weekend. I was curious to know if anyone had managed to compile FreeOrion under Sabayon (or Gentoo) recently. I got it working in Ubuntu Hardy, but it results in segfaults (due to the liblog4cpp library apparently, from what gdb says).

Sabayon looks reeally nice. I am also planning on removing Windowss from my computer this weekend (yeah!) and just having Ubuntu and Sabayon.

So back to the question. Also, does anyone know at what revision shaders were implemented in the SVN code? My card doesn't support shaders and I need to go back before that to get it to run (I am helping with the AI for it so I need to get it compiled and running)

If you mean orion, it's masked due to problems (and it breaking stuff), and if you really mean something known as freeorion then it's not even in the portage tree.

I know. I help dev the AI and I periodically grab the source from SVN and compile it. I was just wondering if anyone else had any success in this area.
