Installing L.O.S.E.R.


I have been trying to install the game L.O.S.E.R. (http://loser.sourceforge.net/) on a Dell 4500 machine. The particulars of the machine: NVidia GeForce MX 420, PIV 1.8 Ghz, 512 RAM, dual boot (master HD hda 40 G XP; slave HD 80 G SUSE 9.0. Configure goes just fine, then when I type "make" here's the total output.

The first "startup" message is in red font, the next one is in blue, then it's red to "missing terminator", then a blue message, a brown message, then the rest in black. I tried a search here, but looks like no one has done this yet??
Thanks for your help.

In the file /home/youser/loser-xxx/src/client/startup.c when you navigate to the **WARNING** string and the next line starts with This you either need to escape new line caracter with \ or remove **WARNING** line all together then it compiles.
Code:
**WARNING**\
This ...
or just
Code:
This ...

Just so you know when you have an error like this, the first error message is the right one usually. The rest come because of it.
So your problem is:
startup.c:316:23: missing terminating " character

If you were to look at startup.c line 316, you'll probably notice the error.
