How do I extract the Doom 3 SDK in linux?


I have been trying to get the Doom 3 SDK, and all I have been able to find is an exe file (which contains the source) and a Makefile. Running the exe in wine does not work. How do I extract it?

Open a terminal.
Change to the directory that contains the D3SDK .exe file.
Type file *
If it comes back saying something like "doom3sdk.exe Elf 32bit binary executable, stripped, yadda, yadda, yadda" then it's actually a Linux executable file so you should chmod +x doom3sdk.exe and then ./doom3sdk.exe. For some reason some people still insist on giving some Linux files unnecessary filename extensions!

If it comes back with anything else, then post the output of the command file *

The doom3 sdk is shipped as a self installing windows executable, you have two choices, install it on a windows machine and copy the files over, or use wine to install it. I used the second method without any problems, Also you will need to provide a Makefile to build the SDK, which you can find an example of here:

http://www.doom3world.org/phpbb2/viewtopic.php?p=58400

I had to adjust some 'whitespaces' when I cut 'n' pasted the above example, but after that it build cleanly enough.

Happy modding.

Mad.

I tried running it in Wine. It pops up saying "Unable to extract the file (null)". It does slightly different things if I set the emulated windows version to something else, but it always fails.

You probably need to install dcom98 and Windows Installer V2.0 before wine will run the doom3sdk.exe correctly.
