UQM Debian packages - Building from source
I provide packages only for Debian Stable and the current Ubuntu biannual/LTS
releases, on i386 and amd64, for now. If you use a different architecture (such
as ARM or kfreebsd-foo) or a different distribution (such as Debian Testing, or
some Debian derivative), you will need to build your own binaries from the
source packages. A short howto:
Install the following packages:
build-essential debhelper cdbs libsdl1.2-dev libsdl-image1.2-dev zlib1g-dev libogg-dev libvorbis-dev libmikmod2-dev
Download all files under 'Source' from the
userfriendly download page
(the tool dget(1) from the package devscripts can help
Extract each source package with dpkg-source -x [file.name.here.dsc]
(dget does this for you).
- Enter each newly unpacked source directory (e.g. uqm-0.7.0) and run
dpkg-buildpackage -us -uc.
- You now should have one or more .deb packages one level above the source tree,
which you can install with dpkg -i [package.deb].
- Finally, note that, while you really should build all packages on your distro,
you will probably be able to get away with skipping uqm-content and instead
using the content .debs available here. If this causes problems, build the
packages yourself before complaining :).
