doom install


mmm... new to linux, blah blah blah. Using Suse 9.2. In the two months I've had using linux, I don't think I've ever gotten anything to work any better than it did the first day. Videos, games, printers, usb, none of it works. I understand that this will take time, and my growth has probably been stunted by the fact I can only use the linux about 30 minutes a day due to job/school. However, idealogically I can not return to windows. Now that summer is approaching I hope to have time to understand linux.

Trouble installing doom. I downloaded it from the following link:
http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/d...2_linux.tar.gz
I unzipped it...

No luck? I'm lost if "make" doesn't work. What do I do?

By the way, what does "make" do? What does "configure" do?

Here's a list of files in the folder.

Yea, haha, the script didn't show it, but I did. Good catch though.

it shows you in the Desktop folder. you should probably be in ~/Desktop/legacy_142_linux/ and run the make command there.

make won't work, because there is no Makefile. Have you looked at the README file, which should tell you how to install.

Yes, I know it used to say "/Desktop", but trust me, the output is the same (I just did that script real quick to get its output). As for the readme, here it is:
Quote:
Linux Doom Legacy 1.41
======================

This is the public release of the binary Linux version
of Doom Legacy.

It has been compiled with GCC 3.2.2 and may not work on
old distribution. If llxdoom doesn't work on your system,
we suggest you to download the source code on our CVS
server at sourceforge.net (or get the source tar ball)
and compile it like that:
make LINUX=1

Enjoy!

Thierry 'Hurdler' Van Elsuwe
hurdler@users.sourceforge.net
I have gcc on my system, it's a c/c++ compiler from what I understand from the man.
The command make LINUX=1 gives:
Code:
jordan@linux:~/Desktop/legacy_142_linux> make LINUX=1
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found.  Stop.

OK, what you've downloaded isn't the source. You've got a binary package, which, from the look of that README, you type llxdoom to run.
The instructions about make LINUX=1 only apply to the source package.

So this is Doom I? If you really only want to play it (instead of installing for proving you can run it natively), and you have a fairly new machine, you may want to take a look at dosbox (which comes with your SuSE 9.2). For this, you'll need the DOS version of Doom (but no DOS, as dosbox comes with it's own). It runs Doom just fine, and a lot of other older DOS games.
