Cube + Mandrake 10.0 Official


Here's what I did, and these are my results:
Code:
$ su
Password:
[root@ user]# cd cube
[root@ cube]# ./cube_unix
./bin_unix/linux_client: error while loading shared libraries: libSDL_mixer-1.2.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
[root@ cube]#
How do I install Cube?

That would mean that you dont have SDL installed (maybe you do, but not one of it's parts). Try searching for SDL in the RPM package database, and installing SDL mixer.

Thanks a lot for your post I did go to package INSTALLER in Mandrake Control Center and there was a package like that. Now, my game is purple, red, geen, yellow in color. The game does run, but in those colors.... speckled like salt and pepper.

Hmm... Does it say anything about something like that in the README? Did you install all packages assosiated with SDL (you'll probably need them)? What's your video card model?

Thank you both for you responses.

I have an intel 810 chipset onboard. Mandrake usually handles package dependencies and did prompt of some. Changing gamma settings worked when Diablo 2 on Windows long ago had a color mess up. It doesn't work here. I'm also getting freezes when I get killed in multiplayer and when the mutliplayer game ends. I could show you the colour errors if I can take an ingame screenshot. I tried windowed, and it colours my entire desktop.

Probably something to do with the drivers, I bet you're using DRI. Try updating to the latest version (of DRI), or getting a new video card (nVidia recommended).

That would be the right way round.

Did RHLinuxGuy's method work for you? If so, you don't need to upgrade. DRI stands for Direct Rendering Infrastructure, and it's an open-source 3D accelerator for all cards that don't have their own drivers (ie, nVidia or high-end ATI's).
