slackware 12.2
create a folder called build_game and down load and build in there. build theses first. build and install andbuild and install as root make install build and install.
build build and install create /build_game/game <---- and just extract the file doc then cd /mk/linux/ type sh./ the ./configure then type jam
2.3 Installation

Unfortunately there is no real installation mechanism present yet (jam install
does NOT work correctly). Please copy the executable file named "glest" and the
example linux config "glest.ini" into the directory where you extracted the
datafiles and start the game there.
so here is the bug I found in his scripts. you must in the game/glest_game/data/lang you must rename english.lng to english.lng.lng then cd to glest_game and type ./glest
this rocks
if you do not have 3d acceleration graphics card configure for that in the options if you think you can then configure for it and play away.

I know it's rambling...
Ok-questions were
1-Why won't glest work right-slo000ww?
2-where are the config files for Glest?(I looked-couldn't find)
3-Does multiple partitioning/rebooting damage anything?
4-Does my partition scheme look ok?
Sorry for the ramble.


To your question No. 3: Answer:
Multiple partitioning, under normal conditions, like rebooting, cannot damage your drive. Partitioning, in some respects, can be like writing and deleting, and this is what normally we expect in using drive disks. It also provides seldom given exercise to the health of your partition table sectors. Only, be sure what you are doing, and you do it right.

To your question No.4: Answer:
Your partition scheme is ok. But since you will repartition one of the slice, if that slice is somewhere within Logical drive area, let me caution that your partition NUMBERING shall change --or get reassigned. So, better, if your numbering reflects the physical sequence on the drive (which is beautiful and helpful in some cases) and you don't want to change the sequence, better way is just to REFORMAT the drive to use, rather than repartitioning it. This happened to me before and I hated to see the sequence: 1, 2, 4, 3, 8, 7, 9, 5, 6, 10 and that's arranged from first sector to the last. Issuing command: /sbin/fdisk -l number are sequenced beautifully but at the bottom it says: "Partition table entries are not in disk order" Although this cannot affect the system it irks an aestethic-perfectionist like me.

You may reformat to prepare the drive and resize with adjacent partitions to fit your new need.

Or you may repartition it anyway, that is still okay.

I hope this helps.
