Tried an SVN update, still getting the ICE. So, deleted checked out code and went to get latest from scratch but could not:

Code: Select all

$ svn co http://svn.berlios.de/svnroot/repos/oolite-linux/trunk Oolite
Authentication realm: <http://svn.berlios.de:80> Members Only
Password for 'super': 
Authentication realm: <http://svn.berlios.de:80> Members Only

Password for '': 
svn: OPTIONS of 'http://svn.berlios.de/svnroot/repos/oolite-linux/trunk': authorisation failed: Could not authenticate to server: rejected Basic challenge (http://svn.berlios.de)
Anyone know what the problem is?

Look at the bottom of this page, had the same problem but there is a workaround.

Wild guess: How are you in terms of disk space?

OK the build runs on my laptop, with a better processor, so how do I generate an installer so I can get it onto my desktop? Could only find autopackage/posix/win32 installers in the build output.
Also, is it possible that the js library build is incompatible with an Atom? I thought they were basically i686 or "better".

Right, tried again with gcc4.3 (and g++/gobc) and the build completed. One visible difference was that there was no (visible) JS stuff being built, which is where my g++4.4 gave an ICE. Is this a clue?

Having said that, the only executable I could find was oolite.app/oolite.dbg, which waited a while then exited with no terminal output. Am I missing a trick? Pretty sure I used to get an oolite.app/oolite executable.

What is the command line you use to "make"?
It seems that the libjs.make is ignored.

erm, you got me there, I'm just running the right command now, forgot the release target somehow sorry about that! OK, builds with GCC4.3, but does not run:

Code: Select all

21:51:47.541 [startup.exception]: ***** Unhandled exception during startup: NSInvalidArgumentException (Tried to add nil to array).
this is with SVN rev. 4591

OK, the bad machine is now dead, and I can build on the laptop (incidentally using gcc4.5), so problem solved ;)

It seems the oolite files are no longer on berlios, but on sourceforge.

i used this link : http://sourceforge.net/projects/oolite- ... 76.tar.bz2

Also i'd like to see the thread title changed, since the info in here is useful for non-ubuntu users that want to build from source also.

Getafix, can you update the OP and title ?

They should be on both as mirror. They are still on the berlios page were they were always available. Also a checkout is still possible on the old link. I just made a checkout at berlios of 1.74 maintenance today without problems: svn checkout 'svn://svn.berlios.de/oolite-linux/branches/1.74-maintenance'
(Minus the quotes. Quotes only added to prevent conversion to a link)

Eric, all links on the download page for oolite on berlios ( http://developer.berlios.de/project/sho ... up_id=3577 ) now redirect to sourceforge.

not every browser / os handles such redirects gracefully (especially if they use javascript for it and you have it blocked).
This also indicates that the files are now physically present on sourceforge mirrors, not on berlios anymore.

But on sourceforge I was not able to find a complete download page. Its all scattered over the site. Probably because it was an automated conversion from Berlios. When looking on sourceforge for all projects, there are two entries for Oolite. (Both refer to the same).
The first points to all downloads: http://sourceforge.net/projects/oolite-linux.berlios/ The download button lets you download the outdated 1.65 version, but after showing all files, you can download even all older oolite testversions.
The other Oolite project page is: http://sourceforge.net/projects/oolite. ... =directory what points to the current 1.76 version. However, the download button only downloads the mac version. A show files brings you to a page for downloads for other platforms.

But things like planet tool, I only can find between the first long list of files.
