Oolite for Raspbian Buster Version

Post by HighlanderMM »

Does anyone know how to get a hold of a working Oolite version for the latest Raspbian Buster version. I have a Raspberry Pi 400 and would love to get this game for it but it is not available on the repositories. I downloaded the Linux 64 bit version but just errors when I try to run it after installing it.

/home/pi/GNUstep/Applications/Oolite/oolite.app/oolite-wrapper: 69: /home/pi/GNUstep/Applications/Oolite/oolite.app/oolite-wrapper: ./oolite.app/oolite: Exec format error

Erk. It looks like Oolite died with an error. When making an error
report, please copy + paste the log above into the report.

(Press Ctrl-C to continue)

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I believe you will need to compile it from source if it is not available in the repository. The oolite.org linux version is built for Intel/AMD processors and, if I am not mistaken, the Raspberry Pi features an ARM one. This would explain the inability to run the oolite.org version and the error message about an executable format error.

General information for building can be found at the project's wiki and github pages.

That is correct. Raspberry is on ARM. I’m looking forward to hear how it goes, @HighlanderMM :)
