Sorry for hijacking this old thread, but maybe it's useful for others.
I was able to build Rigs of Rods 0.4.0.7
and all of its dependencies on Slackware64-current. Generating packages out of them wasn't that easy, but I managed it, too. So now we have the latest version of this simulation on Slackware!
If you want to try out this game, follow these basic instructions:
First, you'll have to install the packages from my repository. I use slapt-get, so I added this to my slapt-getrc:
and issued the following command to install all needed packages:
slapt-get --update && slapt-get --install FreeImage MyGUI MySocketW OpenAL angelscript caelum hydrax nvidia-cg-toolkit ogre ogre-paged ois rigsofrods wxWidgets zziplib
Before starting the game, you'll have to set up the basic directory and add content like vehicles, terrains etc.:
unzip content-0407.zip -d $HOME/.rigsofrods/packs/
Now you can run
to start the game. Have fun!
