Question can not run return to castle wolfenstein


some of you out there may say : just play it on windows and it is sorted
but i want to see how linux handles the graphics on this kind of games (never actually got one working) just tuxracer.
they say is faster than windows.
the distro in use is suse 7.3
dual processor PIII 1Gig
256 MB
latest driver for my geforce 2 mx400 (hardware accelaration is enabled)
after running the binaries which includes single player mode i moved all the files to /usr/local/games/wolfenstein/main as requiered by the documentation. opened a terminal and typed wolf and this came along:

rodro@linux:/usr/local/games/wolfenstein>wolf

??

according to a program i was compiling (mplayer) there was no openGL instaled, but the latest drivers from nvidia are supposed to include them, is there any way i can make the system to recognise these drivers ?

you didn't say you copied the pak files.

you still need to copy some pak files from a windows install.
the binaries are missing some needed pak files.

it took me a while to figure it out ( mostly by asking)
upgrade xfree
upgrade nvidia divers
load wolf
copy pak files

If you've installed the latest nvidia drivers then the problem could be some left over mesa openGL libs, download and run nv_check.sh to check the install for stray libs. When I run RTCW I do "wolfsp" for single player and "wolfmp" for multiplayer.

i have done what you have suggested, i used the nv_check.sh and my drivers seemed alright but there was one part were it could'nt find the libGL.so
in the /usr/lib
after a manual search for this libGL.so, i found it in usr/X11R6/moonlight/
and further search i found this libGL.so.1!? in the usr/lib/ which may be a newer or different version of this file.
when i copied the files i needed from the win32 install
i got the same message but now is asking for opengl32!?
which is found in my wine directory ?!!
i am getting more confused!!!
according to nv_check.sh i should get this lbGL.so from the GLXdriver
but the GLXdrivers provides libGL.so.1

The nvidia readme (/usr/doc/NVIDIA_GLX-1.0/README) has a list of installed components, check that to see if they are all there. Did you install the nvidia drivers from source or by rpm?

I always use the nvidia source packages, they always seem to work better that the rpm's.

i have read the README file and the GLXdriver provides libGL.so.1!
i don't know whether this is the problem, but my guess is that if this is the problem there should be a way of getting RTCW to use libGL.so.1 instead of libGL.so, any idea how can i get this working?

Make a symlink, that should be enough to fool the game into running

i'll do the symlink, because i am still a please check if the command i'll issue is correct, given usr/local/games/wolfenstein
the directory where the game is, and usr/lib/libGL.so.1 where all the opengl libs are e.g libGL.so.1, libGLcore.so etc.
then it should be something like this:

ln -s usr/local/games/wolfenstein usr/lib/libGl.so.1

i don't know whether this is correct. by the way if RTCW keeps looking for libGL.so can i rename the link to libGL.so ?

ln -s usr/local/games/wolfenstein/libGL.so usr/lib/libGL.so.1 ?


thanks for you help

Oh, one more thing.....

I don't know if this will help or not, but when I load rtcw, I have to either type wolfmp (multiplayer) or wolfsp (singleplayer)......

thanks for your help c0n but all this is done but still won't work
the problem is that RTCW cannot find the riquired file libGL.so
and in my system is called libGL.so.1

The correct command is "ln -s /usr/lib/libGL.so.1 /usr/lib/GL.so" you want to create a link called libGL.so that points to libGLso.1. They both have to be in the same directory (/usr/lib) because that's where wolf is looking when you start it. And I do wolfsp and wolfmp for single and multi as well.
