Exclamation I can't compile a devel version of SuperTuxKart on Fedora Core 5


I've been trying for a week to compile the development version of SuperTuxKart. The Irrlicht 3D engine is required, but I could compile that quickly. I've been on the STK forum already, but at this point I just need to know either what packages to install, what commands I need to use, and anything else of interest. Before you tell me, I am well aware that Fedora Core 5 was unsupported 2 years ago. I'm waiting for Fedora 11, people.

Thanks.

would that be a "dev" version that requires MUCH NEWER versions of things like GTK and mesa than was used on the very old fedora 5 .
I would guess that you would need to rebuild about 80% of the fedora 5 BASE code to get it to be compatible with a svn version of SuperTuxKart

well here is the rpm for it on fedora 5
http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat....i386.rpm.html
and the source for fedora 5
http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat...-3.fc5.src.rpm

to install
" supertuxkart-0.6.1-src.tar.bz2 "
http://sourceforge.net/project/showf...kage_id=240975
http://supertuxkart.sourceforge.net/...s#header_linux

about 80 to 95 % of fedora 5 will need to be recompiled ( basically building fedora 10 from the source )
see the INSTALL in svn for the software requirements
https://supertuxkart.svn.sourceforge...rt/main/trunk/
or 0.6.1a
https://supertuxkart.svn.sourceforge...anches/0.6.1a/

Did you even read the problem? That's not what I'm looking for. I already have the devel version downloaded, and I need it compiled. I won't upgrade until Fedora 11 is released. Get it now?

I don't think that you get it.

John VV is saying that you will need to recompile almost everything in Fedora 5 to get this installed...

Get it?

OKOKOKOKOK! I need to compile a devel version of SuperTuxKart. When Fedora 11 is released, I'm going to upgrade to it. I've said that on every one of my posts. Sorry, I was in a bad mood.

No you do not need to recompile it .... but you will need to reinstall the new fedora 11 rpm when it comes out

FWIW you can build an RPM with the source file...

example
Code:
rpm -ta supertux.tar.gz
rpm -Uvh /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i686/supertux-i686.rpm
You should probably search google for more specific details...

That's it? Wow! So the first line is converting tar.gz to rpm, and the second is installing it? P.S. The source code is available through Subversion only. Should I use Ark or something to convert the files to tar.gz?
